Wow! Great, elegant, tasteful, yet artfully modern remodel of this grand classic hotel. The bar is hip and bustling, and dinner was truly exceptional, (and we are spoiled foodies!). Our room (facing the tennis courts) had a spectacular panoramic view, including downtown San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. Staff were terrific - all charming and professional. All around A plus experience!

We've stayed at the Claremont often over the years and love the historical feel and tie to the UC Berkeley community. Since Fairmont purchased the property, it has seen a dramatic freshening of its appearance. However, it still needs some attention: the AC in one room was very noisy and kept its occupant awake, and the mattress and pillows in the other room were very soft.

The Claremont is my favorite hotel in the US. It combines luxury accommodations, a beautiful & unique spa, two olympic size outdoor swimming pools in the lush Berkeley hills, an incredible helpful and genuinely happy staff. It is, of course, only minutes from downtown Berkeley with all its world renown museums, eateries and other rich cultural attractions. My parents honeymooned at The Claremont in 1945 and i've been going there (almost0 every since!

Great Staff Great location Decently priced for all the good extra service

It’s a beautiful, classic hotel that literally propels you into a sort of early 20th century elegance.

Beautiful hotel, lovely room. Staff was efficient and pleasant.

This hotel used to allow access to pool as part of fairly expensive room fee. They no longer do that. Seems unreasonable. Especially for members of their "President's Club." Otherwise, very nice service, good location.

We were able to check in early and were upgraded! The staff and room were awesome

Close to the wedding we went to in the hills, wonderful food at the hotel, good facilities, fantastic gym

Very cool place. Only improvement would be better lunch menu and not closing the only restaurant between 10:30 and 11:30 am.
