My friend and I enjoyed a wonderful three days at the Claremont. We used the spa and pool as well as tennis courts. It's a beautiful hotel with great staff and wonderful amenities. There are balconies to sit and have a drink as well as several restaurant options. Rick and Anne's is amazing for breakfast and is accross the street.

Stayed here in early June. The details of my review is noted immediately after on another site. The parking whether valet or self park is not free. $20-30/day. Room taxes begin at $75 this amount based on the cheapest room. The Upgrade rooms must be based on you using a discount membership (auto club or government upgrade). The upgrade consists... More

Although I had been many times in the Bay Area, this was my first stay at tha Claremont. It seems that it was recently renovated and has everything you need form a hotel, plus the location. The room was big enough, the bed very comfortable, the bathroom spacious. I also tried the lounge for cocktails and food and found it... More

If you are coming to the San Francisco Bay Area but don't want to stay in San Francisco you should definitely consider staying at the Claremont. It's an historic gem, elegant, and stylish in every way. The rooms are gorgeous and every aspect of the hotel is well designed. The staff are just wonderful. And it's just a short drive... More

Although we did not stay at the Claremont, my daughter has been there and she insisted we visit the hotel because it's so beautiful. She wanted us to have a drink and enjoy the beautiful views. Unfortunately, the room we wanted to be in was closed. I can see why people would want to stay here - great location, nice... More

In the San Francisco Bay Area the Ventana Inn, to the south, and Auberge du Soleil to the north, are the landmark 5-star hotels. Claremont wants to be that within our city limits. It can be. But the Fairmont Group, which is owned by a Canadian REIT, has not risen to the occasion. It has all of the physical amenities... More

Had a wonderful stay. I used all the spa amenities as well as the restaurants. Very clean and comfortable. I would recommend the Claremont to anyone visiting the east bay. The spa was absolutely wonderful and location is ideal!

This place is undergoing renovations as part of becoming part of the Fairmont Hotel group. That can be both good and bad. As a local who visits this hotel frequently and uses it as base for some guests that I can't accommodate at home, I miss the charm of an independent hotel. As part of chain, though, you get standardization... More

This is a classic beauty with so much potential. They have already done renovations to much of the hotel, so expectations are raised when you enter the gorgeous hotel lobby. Unfortunately, the rest of the experience does not live up to the beautiful facade. We were in a renovated 2 queen room. However, apparently "renovation" did not include the bathroom,... More
