Beautiful property and signature rooms are amazing with sweeping bay views and large marble baths. The Club is tops for recreational needs-pools to spin class and exercise equipment. There is only a single full service restaurant operating at this large property and although the food is good the excessive noise level and dreadful service detract to the point that the experience is poor. Expect 20 minutes for staff to take an order and that long for drinks to arrive. Our order for 4 was incorrect and further delay ensued. If there were other close by alternatives for dinner this would not be a problem but there are not any in walking distance.

We were disappointed there is room service only on the weekends though. During the week, the only other option is the bakery/deli. The food at the bakery/deli is good but there is a limited selection.

My son who lives in Oakland booked and treated us to a 4 day stay at the Fairmont. It was so incredible. We drove 805 miles from Seattle to Oakland to see our new baby granddaughter. We first got top drawer service at the cafe on the G level - the cappuccinos and croissants were unbelievable as was the fresh pressed orange juice. The room itself was beautiful and spacious - even the bathroom decor was outstanding with such a great shower and bathtub. Ana came and cleaned out room to perfection. the grounds were immaculate as was the wonderful pool where we did laps and enjoyed the hot tub. The Limewood restaurant was where we had reservations for my sons 11/24 birthday dinner. We also had a fun outdoor late lunch on the patio with super service and we all loved the smashburgers. Magnificent view too! This is an elegant old-world hotel with class and history - beautiful property and they take care of you at every turn. My son has bragged about this hotel as his family goes there on a frequent basis. Paul Tomy the General Manager is to be commended on keeping this hotel at such an elevated level of excellence. One suggestion would be to put together a golf package for those that stay there.

This is a spa review, not an overall hotel review. I am a club member and really love everything about the Claremont. I have avoided the spa because of the prices, but was given a gift certificate so decided to get a facial (much needed after an almost 2-yr COVID break). I was soooo looking forward to the pampering and the results. Unfortunate the experience was just ok. I loved the way my skin felt after the treatment, but there were several things I would have liked to have experienced differently. Patti’s hands were cold and the product were cold. I got used to it on my face after a while, but when she massaged my arms it was to the point of being uncomfortable. The other way I judge a good facial is how much time they spend with their hands on me vs sitting while something dries, or cleaning up while waiting for the mask to do its thing. There are so many opportunities for a little neck rub here, a head massage there. I spent a lot of time just lying there. I won’t go back for this treatment. It is a lovely facility and I did buy a cleanser Patti recommended.
