Positively LOVED this place! My sister and I stayed during Thanksgiving and had an amazing experience. Lindsey B. at the front desk truly made our stay. She was so helpful and engaged that it set the tone for our stay. The bar staff at both the lobby bar and the Limewood were also beyond friendly. Seriously, the service there was...

excellent room and service. Exactly what I expect from the Fairmont. We were in a suite that had been redone recently and it was lovely. The chef went out of his way to accommodate my daughter who is a vegan. We went to the buffet and the waiter had the chef come out and explain what she could eat at...

The hotel has great amenities, with pools, saunas, tennis courts and nice rooms and lounges with beautiful views. The service could be a lot better. I had to face a grumpy host at their restaurant, who I had to insist for a table until she finally grudgingly sat me down (there was like 5 empty tables all night, I really...

I recently came back from 3 nights at the Claremont. I've known about this hotel for years. I stayed there 20 years ago for my aunt's wedding. She and her family live in Berekely and they're members of the Club - so over the years I've spent a lot of time at the swimming and athletic club on my visits...

The Claremont is a beautiful special hotel, all aspects of our stay were 5 star or above. The room and bathroom were beautiful and well appointed. The view was spectacular! We actually invited friends over for a drink and we just hang out.

We booked a one bedroom suite for our anniversary getaway. The hotel room furnishings were modern and tasteful. We loved the views of the hills and the bay. We could see S.F. and the bridge from our room. The service was lovely! We had tea in the lobby, and thoroughly enjoyed it! The Meritage restaurant was good too. Our server...

We live only a short 20 minute drive from the Claremont but it seemed like a true vacation oasis for wife and I. Great service from arrival to departure. The overall remodel of the property undertaken by Fairmont has raised the hotel to a whole new level.

I took my friend to the Caremont to enjoy a spa day in celebration of her birthday, and while she enjoyed a massage, I decided to get a much-needed haircut. I was so lucky to have Sunny do my hair. She is just unbelievably talented. Since I'm an East Bay local, and needed a color, she suggested that I come...

I was looking for a hotel on a par with the top ones in SFO but for a fraction of the price, and chanced upon the Claremont. What a find! I only had to go into SFO for one business meeting in the evening and so could hang out at the hotel the rest of the time. I thought the...

“Select a room with a SF bay view room. It is pricey, but makes the hotel.”
  • Golden Gate Bridge and SF Bay
  • Nice room, but furniture placement doesn't take advantage of the view.
