Great for a conference

Restaurant is super expensive and not worth the high cost.

The Claremont Hotel Club & Spa offers the perfect place for a group meeting or conference and we are glad you agree. It is disappointing that you were not as impressed with your dining experience with us, however. We appreciate your feedback and hope that we can provide you with the encounter you are seeking in the future. Thank you for your sharing your review.

nice view and I was up all night due to noise

Posted Nov 12, 2014
Pros: classic beauty
Lovely room with view of the bay, but did not get a good night's sleep, because all the HVAC units were on a roof right outside our window, and they kept king on and off. This "symphony" was punctuated by the elevator bells down the hall, ringing through the night. Also, it cost $30 just to park in the lot, and the plastic card we were given in order to exit the lot after check out didn't work; we had to wait for another car to leave and sneak out - still have the plastic card as a souvenir! Staff only moderately friendly.

Comfortable ellegance

Posted Nov 3, 2014
Pros: Spacious ~ Everything you need
Location: Walk able to shopping, eating and entertainment.
We spent this past week at the Claremont Hotel ~ It's exactly what we love in a hotel property! Historic elegance that is well maintained, beautifully furnished with amazing amenities, excellent location ~ walk-able to neighborhood shopping, dining and entertainment, and a friendly helpful staff. The service and attention to detail are exactly what you'd expect... available for any request, yet not overly attentive... the perfect mix. Authentic ~ Friendly and Professional... bravo to the management team!

Place to Swim, Exercise, Play Tennis

Posted Oct 21, 2014
Pros: Beautiful lobby and terrific view from the restaurant, Parameter. (However, hubby said food was " coffee shop quaility.")
Cons: Hours of facilities
Location: Yeast Nation is an enjoyable, family-friendly show with terrific singing and lively music playing at the intimate Victoria Theater.
THIS HOTEL CHARGES A $26 DAILY RESORT FEE AND A $30 DAILY PARKING FEE. It is a beautiful, old hotel with a gorgeous view, but, alas, not the place for us. We didn't want to spend all day at the pool, in exercise classes, on the tennis court or in a sauna. Hubby did try to exercise late one night, but the gym had closed at 9:30 p.m. I considered using the waterfall shower one morning, but I would have had to put off my shower until 10:30 a.m. We considered taking the family to brunch, but $60 each quickly ended that idea. If your kids want to spend all day at the pool, you want to be on the tennis court and you don't mind the cost, go for it. But if you're planning to visit the city, enjoy the area's fabulous food and maybe even drive out to Napa, skip it.

Thank you for sharing your experience. Our resort property has so many activities and amenities for our guests to take advantage of while staying with us from our Club and Fitness Center, Aquatics, Tennis Courts, Spa and more. We regret that you did not have the opportunity to enjoy more of our offerings on site while you were here, or if the hours of our fitness facility did not fit into your plans. Our resort charge covers use of so much that you have mentioned, but also 3 hours of child care as well as complimentary Internet and more. We regret if your encounter here was not as you had anticipated. It is our hope that you will come back to try it all in the future.

I enjoy the traditional look and feel of the hotel

Posted Sep 20, 2014
It is was quite pricey, but I was able to find a deal online which made it a little more reasonable. We were visiting for a family members wedding and everybody was staying there.

Nice place to stay

Posted Sep 11, 2014
Pros: The facilities and location.
Location: It is beautiful situation on a hillside looking over the Bay. There are some nice coffee shops and restaurants in close walking distance.
This was our second time visiting the Claremont. It is in an excellent location and had the best facilities.
