Stayed here for a quick staycation and loved everything about this property. Grounds are absolutely beautiful. Pool, tennis courts are absolutely great. Didn't feel like leaving property. We had some amazing food in both restaurants at a hotel. Great food. Can't wait to return!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 21 March 2017

The Claremont Hotel has always been one of the San Francisco Bay Area's grand hotels. Located on one of Berkeley's sun-drenched hills, this elegant white landmark has stood out for over one hundred years (est. 1915). Completion of a complete renovation of the hotel last December has brought the grand dame into the 21st century with elegantly understated interiors in...

We are visiting in the Oakland, California area. We had dinner last night at Claremont. For such a beautiful hotel and location. We had the worst meal ever. They don't even begin to offer 5 star food. I had shells in my oysters, my husband had under cooked chicken. My salad was supposed to have roasted vegetables instead they were...

My wife and I took advantage of a Friday business meeting in Berkeley to spend two nights at this fabulous, beautifully restored hotel. The hotel is gorgeous inside and out; the public areas are very classy without being stuffy. We were fortunate to be upgraded to a suite with a fabulous view of the San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate,...

Service, service, service. What you would expect from a Fairmont and more. This property is unique that it's 100+ years old and just magnificent. Our room was spacious and well appointed. The lobby, the restaurants, and the spa/pool area were all exceptional and kid friendly.

Stayed here for a quick staycation. The property is beautiful and the remodeled interior has a classic look with a modern twist that I loved! Rooms are beautiful and the pools and tennis courts are great!

The thing about the Claremont is that there is nothing like it in the East Bay. Perfect views of SF from newly remodeled rooms. Luxurious without being ostentatious. Friendly staff, great spa, huge pool, fabulous gym and endless tennis courts. A high intensity hike up the mountain behind the hotel. Love this place

Claremont Club and Spa is a great place to stay. The architecture of the hotel is really interesting and surprising, the sportive installations tennis courts, swimming pools and the gym are the best. Swimming early in the morning, fresh air smelling pines trees was rejuvenating. A bit disappointed by the restaurant and breakfast buffet but the view on the Golden...
