    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!

    My husband and I came to the Claremont for one night to celebrate our 5th anniversary. We live nearby and the luxury advertised by the Claremont seemed like a nice splurge since we’re not traveling during COVID. I paid about $400 for a view of the tennis courts and a palm tree. I had a slight bay view, but mostly the view of club goers on the tennis courts who awkwardly waved at me as I was in my pjs trying to enjoy the “bay view” I paid for. Additionally the room was a little old and had peeling wallpaper throughout the walls. Overall, it was a fine stay but not worth the price tag at all. Before our stay, we had considered becoming members but based on our experience I’ll think we’ll pass. Kind of a bummer since we live close and it could have been a go to! I will say the staff was extremely kind and helpful. I gave my review an extra star just because of the staff. Also note, the restaurant was great. We went for brunch and our waiter was awesome. A little overpriced but the food is pretty good!

    Stayed for a week and very satisfying experience

    Stayed here for about a week with family. Reserved a junior suite and room was large enough for four of us. However, our room was facing the tennis courts and when we looked out on the windows, we constantly had an eye contact with people going in and out of the courts. Unfortunately, all of the junior suites were on the same floor and had to move up to a room at higher floor with more money... The hotel staffs were great and very friendly. Rooms are clean and comfortable beds.
