Reviewed yesterday NEW

Massive structure above Berkeley, purely old school taken up by a wealthy hotel group, and in the current corporate mode everybody is sweet nice. Huge hallways are worth the trip from what you usually see, and here at the Claremont you can swim in the hallways, if not in the room. Hotel rooms serve the body by sleeping and bathing,...

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...

This was my third or forth stay at this hotel and once again the stay was outstanding. Room was spotlessly clean, bed was incredibly comfortable, great views of the bridge and bay. Bar served great cocktails and food for our meeting was top notch.

I paid $262 for a room with a view of the back of the hotel, it was a midweek last minute booking for work, so it's no skin off my nose but its lame and this room shouldn't be more than $200 ever. I checked in at 7 and I'm checking out at 11 so I can't use the resort...

The Claremont hotel has a pool and rec facility for members and hotel guests. The pools are magnificent and the complex is so well run that it is virtually always possible to take a swim. There are three pools. The largest is probably olympic size and is roped for laps. A smaller one is still a large lap pool but...

I am a regular visitor to UC Berkeley. I am not sure what is happening with Berkeley accommodations, but the hotel choices are so limited, and the rooms are so overpriced for what they offer (and in some hotels just plane out right dirty, dirty, dirty), that it is insane to try to stay there during a UC Berkeley event,...

For 15 years I visited the club at the Claremont almost daily to work out. Oh I miss that place. In addition, I sent friends to stay and I've hosted major events at the hotel .

The hotel is grand and has lots to offer. I liked the location, the views, the appearance of the property inside and out, and the service.
