My wife and I visted the Claremont to celebrate our 25th anniversary. The property is immaculate, the staff are extremely customer-oriented from the management to the very helpful parking valets. Take one look at the property and you can instantly tell it is a classic hotel with roots. Our spacious room was on the 2nd floor with bay view overlooking the tennis courts and well manicured grounds - made for some nice photos of San Francisco in the distance, especially at sunset. This was our 3rd visit to the Claremont (the first was in 1984 and another for New Years Eve in 1990 or so) and it has always impressed. The Meritage restaurant is top shelf from the California cuisine to the nice (but a bit pricey) wine list - we enjoyed a tasty but simple "bacon and eggs" breakfast while overlooking the SF bay on a sunny Saturday morning. The Paragon now features jazz artists for the month of June, and the "Street Food Tuesdays" events provide tasty food at street vendor prices. The Bayview cafe is a great spot to grab a sandwich, etc. while making use of the sparkling pool or just checking out the poolside scene. Our room was immaculate and the bed was very comfortable with nice toiletries provided. Upon arrival, the hotel provided us a comped bottle of champagne which was a thoughtful touch. If you are visiting the Berkeley/Oakland area, I highly recommend the Claremont Hotel Club & Spa - especially as a place to stay/play on a special occasion with your special someone.
