We stayed at the Claremont so that we could attend the Berkeley Business School graduation ceremony. What a treat!
Great view of the bay from a large, well-appointed room, comfortable bed, good coffee at the GrabAndGo breakfast and staff who remembered your name (Well done Nellie!). The Claremont is a grand old hotel but it still works very well.

This was a step back in time in an incredible building. I spent much time wondering the halls looking the beautiful architecture designed by Julia Morgan (of Hearst Castle fame) and antiques that filled it. I had a wonderful view of SF bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. I also stepped outside on the exit balcony and had a incredible overlook at the Cal campus. Room was sparse for modern gadgets including TV, plugs but very comfortable but that only added to the nuance of the stay.

Price was reasonable for a city and area like Berkeley. Rooms aren't large but big enough. Very clean and well appointed. Bed/pillows were great (the main thing to look for !) Breakfast was good quality (no pun intended !) w/a good selection of foods. Area around the hotel was fine for walking in the daytime ... didn't walk at nite but driving around the area at nite it didn't look dangerous. Didn't watch much TV but when we did there was a good selection of channels to "surf". Staff was pleasant and helpful. Bathroom was clean and in good repair
Having said this ... we would stay there again w/no hesitation !

The hotel is a bit run down but the rooms are clean and comfortable. The service is very very slow, however. Only some rooms have mini refrigerators. I asked, twice, to have one delivered and it never came. The restaurant is acceptable but again the service is very slow. I waited 45 minutes for a salad, on two occasions, and then had to ask for silverware and a napkin. The front desk didn't know how much the self service laundry cost, perhaps I got a new person? The cleaning staff only knocked once and then walked into my room at 9AM before I could run to the door and ask them to come back in 30 minutes. They seem short staffed, unfortunately, or poorly managed? However, the nightly price is as high as anywhere within Berkeley but I prefer the marina because of the setting.

An older quaint hotel ...it was quiet and safe. Near many great pubs and restaurants. Staff was great. Room had coffee but no creamer sugar but i was thankful for the coffee. No hair dryer but i had my own. Shower was AWESOME. Bed was okay and standard for most hotels i stay at. Will definitely go again when in that area

The city’s radical spirit has endured at least on Telegraph Avenue by the UC Berkeley campus. Upscale shops have moved into the once industrial Fourth Street district. Foodies flock to the Gourmet Ghetto, which began in the 1970s with Chez Panisse. Berkeley Hills’ residents enjoy bay views and access to Tilden Park’s 2,000 acres. Visitors to the marina can stroll on the pier and explore the parks.
