There was no one to greet you at the entry, not any signs with directions on where the spa/registration desk was located. The staff at the desk in the spa weren't clear in their directions as to how to deal with parking details of cost, time. The quiet room awaiting your treatment would have been much more relaxing had their... More

Service is fantastic. Food very good - albeit expensive. Room on 8th floor - no view and smelled a little stale...it is an old hotel. The room was very comfortable - huge bathroom. But the smell was always there.

We checked in on July 3rd. We already paid for a room with a Bay view (we really wanted the view and paid more). When we arrived around 4:00 pm we were told our room was not ready. We waited about an hour and we were told that they did not have a Bay view room available. The woman at... More

If you want a great rub-down, elegant surroundings, and pleasant staff, there is no better than the Spa at the Claremont. My wife and I enjoy it exceedingly. Relaxing, stress-reducing, with wonderful aromas.

I have stayed here before and it was nice, now that Fairmont hotels is running it, I think there has been considerable improvement. The improvements are obvious and the staff seem even friendlier that in the past. If this is an example of the changes I am looking forward to another stay. Very impressive

The Claremont has been completely updated by Fairmont and is once again a beautiful, luxurious resort. It is located in the hills of Berkeley and the staff is quite professional, yet friendly. We had a terrific room with a view of the bay- a wonderful way to begin and end the day. We have stayed at less expensive hotels in... More

This is one of those great old (but modernized and very well maintained) hotels similar to the Del Coronado in San Diego, etc. It was purchased a few years ago by some key San Francisco people and also became part of the Fairmont Hotel brand. But it has retained all of its wonderful and distinctive elements. Excellent for business conferences... More

Luxury in every respect, located in the beautiful Claremont Hotel. This is without a doubt one of the best spa's in the U.S. Out door lap pool's, hot tubs both inside and out. The spa area is out of this world, steam room, hot tub, bath tub, showers and lounge to relax and have a beverage.The spa at the Claremont... More

The Claremont is THE place to stay in Berkeley. It is nestled in the lower foothills just above Berkeley which gives many of the guestrooms and common areas spectacular views of the bay. The Club & Spa, which is part of the hotel, is spectacular with many tennis courts, a top notch workout area, a world-class spa, two large swimming... More

Lovely facility, helpful staff, beautiful views, luxurious amenities and classic rooms. But, there is a huge amount of construction (the Meritage restaurant was closed, and other cavernous restaurant looked vacant with few diners) so there is a make-shift lobby and no main entrance. Getting to the outdoor pools and spa requires a walk through the parking lot in your complementary... More
