If you are staying in Berkeley to visit family or friends, or looking for an alternative to insane prices for high-end accommodations in San Francisco, this may just be the place for you. I visited the Claremont during Christmas week, 2012, and could not have been happier with how comfortable and lovely this property was. Be aware that the published AAA rate may look cheaper than the "friends and family" rate, but for the published rates, resort fees and parking add $50 per day to your tab. I feel that I was somewhat led astray by the reservations clerk who helped me, as I was told that the AAA rate was lower. That might have been technically true, but the clerk did not tell me that the friends and family rate was "inclusive." Having said that, I thought that the hotel was lovely and will most definitely return, possibly in the summer. The hotel is convenient to BART, so you can be in the heart of San Francisco in a short time and not have to deal with parking/driving. The hotel is spotlessly clean, and there is a nice restaurant/bar that has music at night. There is a great breakfast place across the street (Rick & Ann's). All in all, a great place to call "home base" while in the Bay Area.
