I had excellent customer service from the front desk during my Stay. On the night I checked in, there was an issue with my first room (room was setting off my allergies) so the front desk was very accommodating to find me a different room. The second room had a different issue (need a walk in shower, or lower lip...

As we drove up to this grand old hotel, our mouths dropped open and we thought we were surely in for a treat! The grounds and common areas are absolutely elegant and beautifully maintained and made us feel as if we should immediately donn evening finery! The views from the restaurant and deck were spectacular! Perhaps if we had used...

We live near by and we know the fog can roll in and really mess things up in the San Francisco bay area, but if you get a nice day the pool and the view are the best at the Claremont Hotel. We got a really great room by just telling them were weren't really in a hurry for the...

Stayed here for a conference. Beautiful location and hotel. Old but well maintained and updated in areas. Pools, spa, and tennis courts are fantastic. Get a room with a bay view.

We were in San Francisco on business, but apparently there was a big conference going on in the city, because hotel prices were sky high, i.e., $500/night and higher for a nice hotel. We decided to go outside the city to find a place, and were very glad we did. For 1/2 the price of the San Francisco hotels, we...

Wonderful hotel to visit Berkeley - especially for fitness buffs. Great lap swimming and hill climbing. Also, access to modern gym and numerous fitness classes. Two restaurants - one the Parragon with nice food and bar plus outdoor dining with views of SF and Golden Gate. The Meritage is more formal but serves a lovely breakfast. Other restaurants and shopping...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this lovely hotel. They were very accommodating when I asked to move rooms because of noise from the floor above.

Outstanding fitness facility -- multiple lap pools and weight rooms -- adjacent to a mediocre, decrepit, overpriced hotel. Indifferent service, battered and dated furniture (except in the glossy lobby). Factor in the additional "resort fee" and parking: $36/day on top of the base rate. It's close to campus, and it's got a view -- but rooms don't all have views....
