Due to COVID-19 precautions, not all the hotel appenities are available. In spite of that, we enjoyed our stay. Staff were friendly and welcoming. We were somewhat disappointed with our bay view room. It was rather small and not very smartly decorated. Upon request, they gave us complimentary waters. Hotel is located in a beautiful neighborhood and stores are within walking distance.

Hotel's Favorite
This was my first hotel stay since the Covid-19 era began, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The staff at the Claremont did an outstanding job of making my 3 day stay there seem as normal as possible. Check in, on their first day of reopening after a few months of being closed, went very smoothly. Temperature checks, masks requirements and social distancing were observed. While valet service is not currently available, the staff went out of their way to make sure my electric car was fully charged during my stay. Also, limited housekeeping service is available upon request. The outdoor dining set up and the ability to order meals to go from Limewood were very appreciated. Dinner from Limewood was excellent. My bay view room was perfect, with a stunning view of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. The property is beautiful with many places to sit and enjoy the view. There are also a few small local cafes and bakeries with walking distance. Peter, in Guest Relations, and Chris the Concierge went above and beyond in making our stay enjoyable. Looking forward to my next stay.

Let me preface this with pointing out that of the hundreds of reviews I post on Trip Advisor that I rarely give 3 points. The check in was less than ideal. Difficult, in fact. We booked a room with a rollaway requested. Wrote a follow up email to management to MAKE SURE the room was adequate size and that the rollaway WOULD be set up due to the 3 hour no entry to room rule once someone has been there. Assured. AT the check in asked the front desk are we SURE there is a bed and the room is adequate size? SHOWED them print out of email correspondence. Assured YES. Walk into room after a SEVEN HOUR DRIVE and...you guessed it. Then went down to the desk and told them what happened. They were not gracious or very apologetic. After about 20 minutes they offer either a handicap room in annex or room next to current room that is a very nice room. We take the nice room nearby. It is very nice with pull out couch. Go to eat something. Come back TIRED wanting to sleep and discover there are NO PILLOWS, SHEETS or BLANKETS!!! So for almost $500 we got Motel 6 service. After many stays here we are honestly very disappointed.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us once again. We are grateful for your loyalty and truly sorry for the difficult arrival experience. There is no excuse for the lapse in our standards of service and I personally take ownership for the failure to deliver. Please consider allowing us the opportunity to discuss further in the spirit of earning back your full confidence. You will have received an email from myself in this spirit.

The Claremont Hotel in Berkeley is a fantastic place for a staycation. Very luxurious, with an old fashion feeling of upscale luxury that was made famous in the 1930’s and ‘40’s yet remains luxurious today. The hotel has all the protocols in place for the pandemic, yet it all drops away when sitting at a warm fire pit table having dinner and a glass of wine. Downstairs is a nook restaurant with breakfast served with your choice of lattes and cappuccinos. When unable to travel to Europe, you will feel like you have had an amazing vacation at the Claremont Hotel in Berkeley. Worth the trip.
