I have not stayed at the Claremont for about 3 years and man does she look better than ever. The rooms are all freshly decorated and mine was impeccably clean and amazingly comfortable. Hallways and public space all look fresh and is done to compliment the 100 years this resort has been in operation. The sense of arrival was the... More

When you stay at certain places you expect to get what you pay for. I was expecting a certain level of service and did not receive it. From the waiter at the Paragon that was unapologetic for his mistake, to the female manager on duty who did admit knowing about the issue but made no attempt to come and address... More

I stayed here in mid-August for work in the area. What a poor choice that was. The building itself is lovely and the common areas were great. My room left a lot to be desired. The first thing I noticed when I got to my room was that the bathroom needed a good scouring. Granted, this is an old hotel... More

Can't vouch for all rooms but ask for 409 if you can get it. Awesome floor to ceiling view of SF, Oakland, the Bay, Alcatraz, Golden Gate + huge room with sitting area. Hotel is full of interesting detail--architecture, pictures, furnishings. Restaurants are excellent. All in all, just a very pleasant 3 day stay.

The hotel is truly a 5 star experience. My husband and I loved the pool, the room, the restaurants and the concierge was so super! Told us great places to visit. We went to Saulito and ate lunch at Scomas which she recommended. The food was excellent and sitting at the next table was Carlos Santana. What a great day... More

We went back to the 'Grand Dame' Claremont after our first stay 25 years ago. Nothing has changed in terms of top-notch service, beautiful public areas and facilities. The concierge was super-helpful, the bartenders friendly and the place mostly well maintained in spite of its age. Loved the black and white photos of famous guests of decades ago. More recently,...

A lovely week overall, with a very professional and accommodating staff overall, from the smallest request and more. Our concierge Sandi was a delight in everyday, full of suggestions and the best positive energy I have ever seen. We are world travelers and Sandi remembered us, chatted with us and made us want to report back to her everyday. She... More

A comfortable hotel that's outstanding for its character and amenities more than its rooms. We stayed at the Claremont for 6 nights in July/August 2012. Since we were traveling with our kids, we were delighted when their front desk offered us a well-priced upgrade to a two-room suite. (We paid a total of $200/night for our suite.) It's useful to...

Excellent hotel with history and beauty.The view from the outdoor terrace restaurant is amazing! Great concierge service and delicious dining. Make a point to have breakfast too. Easy quick or complete breakfast available. The pool and spa are to die for. I would definitely go back.
