I did not stay at the Claremont hotel but I can't wait to go back. I was there for business and had some extra time to kill. The concierge told me how great the spa was so I decided to give it a try. Amy was awesome. Hands down one of the best massages I've had. All of the spa attendants were professional and friendly.
I wanted to stay and relax a while but the spa closed Early Hint. Check hours of spa way ahead so you can plan ! Great addition to my work day. .

I live nearby and have always had service issues with their restaurants, so I was pleasantly surprised after my first visit to the spa. Overall, the body treatment and technician were good, but I'm not sure I'll frequent this spa with their current prices, facilities, and service levels.

The good:
-I got a mud wrap body treatment with Meega. She was pleasant, explained the products and process, and stopped chatting with me when it was time for the massage so I could relax. I feel like my skin is softer after the treatment, so that's good. I wish they kept the scalp massage going until it's time for the rinse off, but I suppose they stop to give you some quiet time.

The not so good:
-Prices - Way too high for the level of service and the facilities.
-Service - One of the reservations agents I got was pretty awkward and had a hard time focusing on the date I needed (kept looking up the wrong day for the various treatments). Once there, you don't get the standard facility tour (here's the steam room, etc.), so you just poke around and figure it out for yourself.
-Facilities - The Claremont's prices are higher than even the Solage and Indian Springs in Calistoga...yet their facilities are maybe 1/4 as nice. If you were to compare it to an urban spa, say the Nob Hill Spa in the Huntington Hotel in San Francisco...the Claremont's prices are still higher and again, the facilities don't compare (no views, no big pool, no spa dining, no workout/yoga facilities, etc.). Inside the spa itself, there were a few areas under construction in the shower area. The two tubs by the whirlpool were empty...I'm assuming they were for a cold water dip, but another guest and I couldn't figure it out and none of the buttons did anything. There is a plastic stick with fake orchids on it in vases along the wall above these tubs. Not very classy and some were facing the wrong way...like someone just threw them in there. The waiting room felt a bit like a doctor's office with just some chairs, coffee tables w/magazines, and a drink station. There just wasn't enough there to make me want to relax and lounge the rest of the day.
-No spa lunches. They just changed their hours and nothing starts until 11am on most weekdays, so you can't really do a spa lunch (no one wants a massage on a full stomach). Even if you could do all your treatments in the morning, there isn't a place where you can lunch in your robe. You have to go out to one of the restaurants like the Paragon (where I've had service issues in the past).

I'd suggest that they allow spa guests access to the rest of the hotel amenities (pools, etc.) so we can truly make a day out of it and to help justify the prices. Until then, I don't see a compelling reason to make it one of my regular spa destinations.
