Popular among families and couples alike, Claremont Club & Spa, A Fairmont Hotel, has been an escape from the hustle and bustle for more than 100 years. A place where Old World charm meets modern elegance, “the pristine white facade, polished wood floors and rich rugs and upholstery immediately create a sense of sophistication, without being overly stuffy or pretentious” (Forbes Travel Guide). 

Rooms here are bright, airy and vary in size and decor, but all include flat-screen TVs, well-stocked mini bars and a coffee machine. Make the most of your stay by upgrading to a Bay view room.  Amenities are plentiful, with multiple pools, a full-service spa, a beauty salon, tennis courts and a supervised kids club. 

For creative and inventive cocktails, visit Limewood Bar & Restaurant. Or if you prefer a relaxed afternoon sipping tea, make sure to check out the Lobby Lounge. 

Food, shopping, ferry rides and museums can be found at Jack London Square, a 15-minute drive by car. College Avenue, around the corner, is also a great spot for dining options. For those looking for city adventure, guests can choose from three downtown areas to explore: San Francisco, Berkeley and Oakland, all within a 30-minute drive.

Noise level in Limewood Restaurant is unbearable at times (when the restaurant is full). Would not return to the restaurant for this reason.

The room was large and cozy. The entire staff always acknowledge us with a smile. We were celebrating our 59th anniversary and loved the friendliness of everyone. Check in was quick and friendly. The greatest was the bar waiter that got blankets for us with out asking and helped us put them around us. He was a young fellow and so thoughtful with the blanket and taking our picture without us asking. The only negative of our stay was the sound system in our room. It was difficult to watch the movie and understand what was being said. We finally shut it off. Granted we are aging and Tom wears hearing aides but we usually don't have a problem. Thank you for a great stay.

The walls are very thin. We were woken up at 4:00 AM because our neighbor was talking on the telephone.
