I'm a Claremont Graduate University student who has since moved across the country, and I always stay here when I return for school business. You can easily get a decent price on a hotels web site (approx. $100 a night, sometimes!), and the hotel is clean and easily accessible. I've never eaten at the restaurant or bar, but you don't have to, because Claremont has a wonderful variety of establishments within walking distance. The sliding door on the bathroom is a little weird, but livable; also, the coffeemaker didn't exactly produce great brew, but there's a little coffee and smoothie bar (The Spot) around the corner that is highly recommended. Couple that with the fact that Trader Joe's is right next door, and you're set for food in a hurry. The room has a fridge, so it's easy to grab a couple of salads and sodas and settle in for work or relaxation if you wish. Highly recommended for travel to Claremont!

Thank you for the kind words about the DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont Hotel yes it is in great proximity to Claremont Graduate University.
Hopefully next time you stay with us you have time to try our Orchards restaurant on property out the food is very good and reasonably priced with great daily specials.
Glad you had the opportunity to try the little coffee and smoothie bar (The Spot) around the corner its very good.
Yes Trader Joe's is right next door and our guests do love that, always great for that food on the go and being fresh is even better.
All of our rooms do have a refrigerators in them and microwaves can be offered based on availability on request.,
We look forward to having you stay back with us again when visiting CGU.
