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.

I wish I could have stayed more than one night at this gorgeous hotel. My room was quaint while still being modern and well decorated. The marble bathroom was gorgeous, and I loved the rainfall shower.

Mom and I were visiting Berkeley for my niece's (mom's granddaughter's) graduation. We decided to splurge and treat ourselves to a stay at The Claremont Club & Spa and we are so glad we did! Everything was completely fabulous! The room, the view, the food, the staff - all exceptional & exceeded our expectations. From the Bellman to the Front Desk Agents to Pat and Martin in IRD to the Concierge to the servers in Limewood - all exceptionally friendly, helpful, and engaging. I was disappointed that there wasn't a robe in the closet (because a fluffy robe to lounge in is just a little added decadence for me!), but one call to

Bay view rooms are worth it. Upgraded bathrooms. Bedding is excellent. Service is stellar. Views of Bay are awesome. Good value for the Bay area, which is high to begin with. Fitness club and pool is wonderful. Food is expensive on site, but it is close to cafes and shops and other restaurants.

We had two rooms that were both upgraded. Ours was below ballroom that had noise late even after we complained. The other room was to be next to ours but was at opposite end of building and got noise in the morning from employees arriving for work. For the price I would stay some where else.

The facility is beautiful, the service is terrible. I would expect better service at Motel 6. 1. No help with luggage, they didn't even hold the door. 2. Couldn't eat in the hotel restaurant even though we were guests. Said the restaurant was booked. 3. Waited over 30 minutes in the lobby bar and nobody ever came to take our order, we left. 4.No turn down service. Not a big deal but expected at a property that bills itself as special. 5. Front desk screwed up credit card verification. It took over 40 minutes of my time to straighten out their screwup.
