The Claremont Hotel Club & Spa in Berkeley, California

Views of San Francisco Bay and the city skyline are killer at the Claremont Hotel Club & Spa. That might be why the property was so appealing to a Kansas farmer who struck it rich during the Gold Rush and built an elaborate English castle for his wife. After a fire destroyed the castle the land changed hands, and was allegedly won by a developer in a game of checkers. When the Claremont opened in 1915, it housed a radio station and private school. Today, its architecture gives the resort a timeless sense of grandiosity.

Dive into one of the resort's lap pools to get your blood flowing. Recline under a blue umbrella on a poolside lounger while a waiter serves a seared Ahi tuna niçoise salad for lunch. Take an afternoon drive to downtown Berkeley, checking out the shops on Fourth Street on the way to Berkeley Marina. Sip chardonnay as the Golden Gate Bridge twinkles in the setting sun.

From check-in to check-out our experience at the Claremont was flawless. We chose a bay view room up on the sixth floor and it was definitely worth it, the room had panoramic views of the SF bay area and great views of the sunset (see photos). The bathroom is very nice and modern with a nice bathtub (see attached photo). One of my favourite things about the Claremont is Edie, the hotel dog. I had to leave my dogs at home for this trip so it was nice to see a hotel dog was present. The gym is currently undergoing renovations, but all of the necessary equipment and resources are still available in the temporary fitness centre. We tried "Limewood" restaurant and were very impressed with the food and service, the steak was delicious and the bartenders have some great creative cocktails. Overall, we really enjoyed our trip to Berkeley and the centrally located Claremont. I would highly recommend this hotel and the Bay Area in general.

Room was fine. Food service was poor. very limited menu. Short hours for breakfast. Staff did not know what they had to offer. Had to send them back to check, multiple time. Not trained. Hostesses were worthless. Errors in bills.

This hotel was chosen because it was conveniently located to family. Our room was small but very comfortable and luxurious. We did not have time to avail ourselves of the pool, spa and gym but we loved walking through and sitting in the large light public areas. The staff were exemplary. We so appreciated being allowed to check in early at 9 in the morning following our arrival from Australia. That was a stand out service. In addition, the staff were fabulous at storing and heating up our kosher food and so friendly.

You could just stay at the Claremont the entire time. I enjoyed the complimentary steam room and whirlpool at the Spa. Restaurants have delicious food, pricey though. Room was clean, beds comfortable. I didn’t like that bathroom was small without a tub. However, there is a large variety in room layouts. Next time I’ll request a larger bathroom. Our room overlooked the Golden Gate - sunsets and full moon views were stunning. This is a full service hotel with all the amenities, even a dog that greets people in the lobby.

My son moved to Berkeley and I’ve been searching for a beautiful hotel to stay in when I visit him! The Claremont is the most elegant home away from home! From the gorgeous woodwork to the amazing restaurants to the robes in your room, no detail is overlooked. As soon as you enter the property your every need is taken care of from valet parking to bellhop service to the concierge to help plan your stay. Room service to start our day in the mornings was heaven (I highly recommend the blueberry pancakes!). The Limewood for appetizers and drinks after returning in the evenings is a must (The Melody cocktail and the cheese plate is a yummy way to start!) And don’t miss out on the Meritage for dinner! We didn’t get a chance to try the spa this time but we will definitely be returning and it is on our list! Thank you The Claremont for making our stay memorable! We will meet again very soon.
