I picked this hotel based on location to Berkeley university, as I was visiting my son .As a Fairmont , I had high expectations . The rooms are very basic , and disappointing. Staff not friendly, or welcoming. The Club however has a lovely friendly atmosphere, gym and pool worth a visit. Restaurant food is overpriced, with very stuffy staff... More

Beautiful hotel and rooms, great room service, parking was a nightmare and the lack of AC (the air is water chilled not a true AC system) in the hot weather made the stay uncomfortable. Room - was beautiful (we had a standard king with a view out the front) for 6 nights. Good coffee maker. Issues, however : - temp... More

Recently returned to Claremont. Beautiful room updates add to the value of staying there. Great service at the front desk. Walk down the hill to Rick & Anns for great breakfast, and have dinner at Mediteanee on College Ave (walkable from Claremont) for outstanding dinner.

It is a big annoyance when you find these charges for "an item from the minibar...". They removed it when I told them that I did not take anything from the minibar, but still this should not happen at a high end hotel. If a hotel chooses to have a minibar with to be charged items, they need to charge... More

The Claremont is a grand hotel from a bygone era. Though recently renovated, my room overlooking the roof for $270 +tax+parking+resort fee, was small. The carpet was damp whe I arrived. The bath had nice fixtures, but no tub. Toiletries were okay--no moisturizer, irritating to me cause I intentionally left mine at home thinking the hotel would have it. But... More

We were in Berkeley to attend an away football against Cal Berkeley. Everyone at the Claremont could not have been more hospitable to the fans of the opposing school. We were greeted warmly by every staff member we encountered. The concierge was very knowledgeable and helpful when we needed to plan activities around the SF area. The Claremont was truly... More

We've been here a couple of times and this is our go place to pamper ourselves in the neighborhood. The first time we went to afternoon tea and the set up was superb. Unfortunately the service was not great and we couldn't get a hot water refill so our tea steeped too long and became bitter. It was disappointing. However,... More

If you're a Berkeley alum, there's no other resort to consider besides the Claremont. The staff if friendly and the food is delicious. However, I will say the gym and locker rooms are dated. But, the swimming pools and tennis courts make up for that. And, when we're in Berkeley, we're not really visiting to enjoy the Spa (we go... More

This property is primely situated in Berkeley. Obviously, a great go-to for visitors and certainly parents and alumni of UCB. The property was recently remodeled so it has the HGTV-style look that many enjoy. I would have hoped for a more timeless renovation given the history of the property and the amazing bones of the structure but different strokes for... More

The Claremont is a beautiful property and the remodel is gorgeous. Our service could have been much better. The restaurant and bars off of the main lobby had staff that didn't know the history of the hotel and their own menus! Next time, get this right prior to a holiday weekend!
