    Due to COVID-19 precautions, not all the hotel appenities are available. In spite of that, we enjoyed our stay. Staff were friendly and welcoming. We were somewhat disappointed with our bay view room. It was rather small and not very smartly decorated. Upon request, they gave us complimentary waters. Hotel is located in a beautiful neighborhood and stores are within walking distance.

    Let me preface this with pointing out that of the hundreds of reviews I post on Trip Advisor that I rarely give 3 points. The check in was less than ideal. Difficult, in fact. We booked a room with a rollaway requested. Wrote a follow up email to management to MAKE SURE the room was adequate size and that the rollaway WOULD be set up due to the 3 hour no entry to room rule once someone has been there. Assured. AT the check in asked the front desk are we SURE there is a bed and the room is adequate size? SHOWED them print out of email correspondence. Assured YES. Walk into room after a SEVEN HOUR DRIVE and...you guessed it. Then went down to the desk and told them what happened. They were not gracious or very apologetic. After about 20 minutes they offer either a handicap room in annex or room next to current room that is a very nice room. We take the nice room nearby. It is very nice with pull out couch. Go to eat something. Come back TIRED wanting to sleep and discover there are NO PILLOWS, SHEETS or BLANKETS!!! So for almost $500 we got Motel 6 service. After many stays here we are honestly very disappointed.

    Fantastic staycation night

    The Claremont Hotel in Berkeley is a fantastic place for a staycation. Very luxurious, with an old fashion feeling of upscale luxury that was made famous in the 1930’s and ‘40’s yet remains luxurious today. The hotel has all the protocols in place for the pandemic, yet it all drops away when sitting at a warm fire pit table having dinner and a glass of wine. Downstairs is a nook restaurant with breakfast served with your choice of lattes and cappuccinos. When unable to travel to Europe, you will feel like you have had an amazing vacation at the Claremont Hotel in Berkeley. Worth the trip.

    We got engaged at the Claremont and it was truly amazing. From the sheer beauty of the place to the great effort every member of staff went to to make our stay extra special. In particular I would like to call out the wonderful hospitality and attention to detail that the concierges Brook and Lauren put in - you both helped make our engagement the best day of our lives thank you! We will come back and stay very soon!
