The Claremont Hotel Club and Spa, was the location for my November 11th, 2011 wedding. Kathy Marty was the person I was directly in contact with. My planning process started in January of 2010. I knew immediately that I had to have my wedding here. Not only are views from the Sonoma(upstairs) and Horizon (downstairs) rooms breathtaking but the whole experience was a once in lifetime experience, just like our date. There were a few bumps along the way, because I planned my wedding from Tennessee. But in spite of those hiccups, the Claremont far exceeded my expectations. The food was simply divine. 5 stars all the way. Our Bridal suites and Honeymoon suites were magnificent. Kathy really bent over backwards to accommodate our wedding and we are truly appreciative!!

Thank you Kathy and thank you Claremont for helping create great memories that will not be forgotten for many years to come. We cannot say enough of how wonderful everything was.

We had an intimate cocktail reception & formal sit down dinner on 10/22/10 for 52 guests. Throughout our 6 month engagement and planning process Melisa Johnson was warm, helpful, and exceptional at her job. My husband and I were so impressed by our overall experience. Our guests raved about the hotel, food (seabass & filet) , beverage (full bar) , staff (Johnny & banquet team), and rooms. Though the Claremont was more expensive than other venues it was worth the price and experience. We are looking forward to coming back for years to come to celebrate anniversaries and future events. Thank you to Melisa and the Catering Staff for treating us so well and making our wedding day a wonderful day to remember in every way!

Ah, the famous Claremont Hotel. I always enjoyed driving by this majestic building and dreaming of staying there (even though I live in Berkeley). Well, I got my wish. We rented a hotel room as our "getting ready" location for our very Berkeley wedding (complete with a ceremony at LHS, Scharffenberger favors, and a SmartCar).

We visited the Claremont to book a hotel room, and they gave us many options and keys so we could view the rooms. Their "bridal suite" was up in a tower, probably the best room the have to offer. It was also ridiculously expensive and too big for our purposes.

We decided on a couple of rooms and went down to the desk to book them. The front desk agent then said that the rooms were already reserved. We eventually found a couple of rooms we liked in the "new" (but non-renovated) wing, which is only accessible through the spa level. We decided to book both rooms - the prices were pretty reasonable since we reserved well in advance, but I would have preferred the original rooms we viewed. I wish the front desk agents had told us upfront so that we wouldn't have wasted our time.

The actual stay was lovely. My suite had plenty of room and furniture for me, my bridesmaids, beauty team, and photographers/videographers.

The view was breathtaking, the ambiance was lovely, and I recommend the Claremont if you have the money to spare. I definitely want to stay again!

My husband and I held our wedding at this hotel last year as this hotel is beautiful and the views of the Bay are amazing. My husband and I had also enjoyed our stays here before and the initial food tasting went really well. As for our wedding, our guests enjoyed the hors d'oeuvres and the boba bar during the tea reception, which we had instead of a cocktail hour. Our guests also enjoyed the food during the main reception, except for the vegetarian entree. Unfortunately, they did not provide the vegetarian entree we selected and the vegetarian entree they did provide tasted poorly. There were also other issues during the planning process with the hotel and during the wedding day due to poor organizational skills and a poor ability to execute tasks and duties on the part of certain hotel staff. The hotel management acted reasonably and kindly in addressing all the issues and the staff here is certainly very well-mannered and likeable. However, in order to be a truly fine hotel, they need to be more organized and do things correctly, especially for weddings where the experience matters the most. I submitted a detailed review directly to the hotel with the hope that they will improve, and hopefully they have.
