Once again the Claremont did not disappoint. Beautiful oasis in my backyard. The views from my room and the lobby bar were stunning. The fitness center is unbelievable, there was something for everyone. Perfect place to get away for the weekend.

Hotel's Favorite
As a Bay Area native, this is by far my favorite greater SF area hotel. Most hotels in Berkeley/Oakland are pretty cramped...Claremont is sprawling and feels more like a private resort. Staff is very friendly and helpful, there are no snobby attitudes that sometimes come with staying in an upscale hotel. The spa is GREAT. They were fully booked when a friend and I stayed, but we managed to check out the whirlpool and sauna which were lovely. The spa areas are divided by gender which makes the areas both quieter and friendlier. The saline whirlpool is indoors with beautiful tree and bay views. We plan on coming back just to go to the spa! Room service is a little pricy, but portions and quality make it worth it. We were in town for a concert and it is really wonderful to be able to stay somewhere so quiet and private and still be in downtown Oakland in 15 minutes or less. This will be my go to from now on!

I have been attempting to resolve a substantial overcharge by the hotel to my credit card for almost two months (I was charged twice for the same amount). I have not had my calls returned, and have continuously heard the same excuse by the hotel operator as to why the hotel manager wasn't available to speak to me at the time of my calls. I have finally given up trying to resolve this issue by myself, and have filed a dispute of charges with the credit card company. I'm shocked at the lack of professionalism and customer service from the hotel staff. I will never stay at this hotel again.

Claremont is one of my favorite hotels in North America. Service, room product, restaurants and staff are on point. An amazing escape from San Francisco. Had the grilled club and pizza from in room dining the night we arrived. Order was delivered in 15 minutes and was one of the best club sandwiches I’ve had. LimeWood restaurant Is busy however the staff takes the time to make you feel special. Had oyster, the halibut and a ribeye, all cooked perfectly. Bell staff made it to our room in under 2 minutes and couldn’t be more professional. Thank you for another amazing stay team Claremont! Can’t wait to return.

We had a lovely junior suite over the Thanksgiving weekend. The staff was very friendly and mostly attentive. Unfortunately, the hotel does not reserve tables in its restaurant for hotel guests, so we were unable to get breakfast during our stay as all the tables were fully booked by locals who come to the hotel to eat. At departure, we had a car service pick us up to take us to the airport, but the automatic gate ticket readers at both exits were malfunctioning, and it took us 15 minutes to get off the property. Apparently no one had the authority to simple open the gates and let the cars out. We were able to borrow a room key from another guest, but I don’t know what the long line of cars behind us did to get out.
