Posted Jul 18, 2015
Pros: its age
Cons: not there long enough to comment
Location: went to a wedding in tilden park, didn't have time to explore
my grandmother loved to visit/ stay at the claremont. it is something that i have always wanted to do but could never afford in my earlier years, so i decided to just go for it.

Das klassische Hotel in Berkeley

Posted Jul 12, 2015
Das Claremont ist "das klassische Hotel" in Berkeley und kann auf eine rund 100 jährige Geschichte zurückblicken. Die Bar ist erstklassig eingerichtet und der Service außerordentlich. Im Restaurant hat man einen einzigartigen Blick über die Bay, inklusive Golden Gate Bridge, Skyline und Bay Bridge. Angeschlossen an das Hotel ist ein Spa, Tennisplätze, Fitnesscenter und Swimmingpools. Das Hotel würde während unseres Aufenthaltes renoviert. Die Zimmer waren sauber, aber eher positiv typisch amerikanisch. Der Parkplatz gehört zum Hotel und kostete pro Nacht 30 Dollar.

Under construction

Posted Jul 9, 2015
Arrived to check in to find the lobby pictured on the website was boarded up. We had to walk around to a mall side entrance next to the valet booth. The view from our room was a garbage dumpster overflowing with trash. We were moved to a new room that was underneath ongoing construction. The next day the sounds of stomping, drills and some mysterious banging started after breakfast. Luckily we were only there one night. Please let travelers know when a hotel is under construction.

When we arrived in our room, it was not cleaned. There was a cigarette butt by the window.

Great historical location, needs room renovation.

Posted Jun 30, 2015
The Claremont is a beautiful hotel and has interesting history. However, the price is not appropriate for the quality of the room. The room was spacious with a king bed and sofa bed for the kids. The sofa bed was small and the mattress needed replaced and the bar in the middle of the back was quite annoying and in unbearable by morning. The carpeting by the small refrigerator was damp from some unknown source and the plumbing I. The bathroom leaked continuously. I felt that the price of the room was geared to the amenities of the hotel, not the quality of the room. The grounds, amenities and general location was amazing.

Class act. A grand hotel without pretentiousness.

Posted Jun 23, 2015
We recently stayed at this marvelous property in the gorgeous village of Berkeley. Resembling the grand hotels of years past, the Claremont Hotel is no faded beauty. From the friendly greeting at the door to the marvelous anything but hotel food, to the comfortable bed with really nice linens, this property is memorable and nostalgic.

Expensive but Nice

Posted Jun 20, 2015
Pros: The restaurants and the brunch
Location: The fact that this hotel is in Berkeley speaks for itself. Great restaurants and shopping, walking through the community and the parks are possible.
This hotel is very nice. It truly is a club and spa. If you stay, you must take advantage of the facilities and some of the classes such as yoga. We thought it was expensive, but given the opportunities for different workouts and relaxation, maybe we're mistaken. You be the judge. The restaurants are excellent, and the brunch is one of the best we have had.
