The Claremont is a very nice high end hotel. The views of the Bay, are fantastic. The rooms can be small but are well appointed. Guests have access to the club and spa which is well equipped. There are multiple restaurants in the hotel. We ate at the Meritage which was just okay. There are also many restaurants a short...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

There are several choices in restaurants and plenty of fun activities between Tennis, exercise classes and spa services. The outdoor pool area is large and well maintained. There is also a cafe conveniently located near the pools/gym/jacuzzi which makes having lunch, coffee or...

Great views of the bay. Decent dining. Great pools and tennis. Terrific spa. The rooms vary so there is something for everyone. Just underwent a facelift when the Fairmont group took over. Certainly the best hotel in Berkeley. Can be a bit crowded at times but the staff is great and will do all they can to help.

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!

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.

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.

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
