5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A gorgeous hotel overlooking the bay. Definitely get a room with a view! The environment was a perfect enhancement to the company I had the true pleasure of being with. A romantic start to a beautiful weekend.

Hotel smells! Old rooms smell like a sewer. Renovated rooms have the overpowering chemical order of new carpets. We reserved a king bed suite and they tried passing of a queen as a king. Currently under construction, no lobby, dirty. Avoid, avoid, avoid!

If only the infrastructure of the hotel matched the quality of the staff. This hotel is going through a major renovation which it desperately needs. We are staying there right now and the sounds of a room being given a makeover (directly over my head) are both encouraging and incredibly annoying. The current rooms are very small and have very...

I am a Cal Bear, and as such, I am biased. We stayed here the first week of July and had fabulous weather and views of the city skyline (SF) and the gorgeous Cal campus. As you've heard construction is going on for renovations, but, the prices aren't bad for a resort of this caliber as a result. Our room... More

Rooms are spacious and quaint with old fashioned charm and elegance. Quiet and picturesque views. The recreation facilities and spa are very large and spacious - including gym, tennis and pool. The spa massage was fantastic - made the entire trip.

Spent four nights at the Claremont in August during a heat wave that pushed outside temps above 90 degrees. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but we were staying on a floor that was being remodeled and the A/C did not work in our room ( and many of the rooms on our floor) and the noise from construction was...

We enjoyed the lovely archetictusl details and beautiful views of this charming hotel. The location was convenient for coffee runs and casual restaurants. The fitness and yoga classes and pools included in the hotel fees were a plus. The rooms could use updating. The concierge and staff were especially helpful. Looking forward to returning.

The room was fine. Nice amenities and conveniently laid out. What I found exceptional was the staff. Makiva White was enormously helpful with a myriad complications with my reservation. She was professional, knowledgable, helpful, warm, thoughtful....unusually gifted at her job. I also want to note Sandy the concierge. She helped me with reservations, helped me locate various merchants, and followed... More

The Claremont is where I always stay when I come back for visit, because it's only luxury hotel in the Oakland/Berkeley area. The remodeling activities make it somewhat less pleasant than usual. The lobby and outdoor dining are closed, for example. My room is quiet, though. The place does need an updating, so I'm glad they're tackling the job. They... More

We've been at the Claremont now for a few days and have had a mixture of high and low experiences. My only negative comment would be addressing the issue of air conditioning. We were not informed at check-in the air was out and would stay out during renovations, however, we requested a room fan and the temp has been comfortable... More
