WHERE: The Clare­mont Ho­tel, Club & Spa is in Berke­ley, just across the bay from San Fran­cisco. The city is eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble by Bay area in­ter­state free­ways and, be­cause of ex­cel­lent Bay area mass tran­sit, can be a good base of op­er­a­tions for ex­plo­ration of down­town San Fran­cisco and many other bay attractions.

WHAT: The Clare­mont Ho­tel, Club and Spa is one of Berke­ley’s most ex­clu­sive ad­dresses and of­fers world-class lux­ury in a serene set­ting. The city it­self is in­ter­est­ing — in the Six­ties, Berke­ley was Ground Zero for the counter-cul­ture and has re­tained that in­de­pen­dent at­ti­tude through­out the many decades since. Home to the UC Berke­ley, the city has be­come a vi­brant arts cen­ter and fea­tures his­toric neigh­bor­hoods and ar­chi­tec­ture.

WHEN: Any time of the year, al­though Bay area weather can of­ten be as cold as cities to the north such as Portland and Seat­tle. The closer you get to sum­mer the bet­ter the chance of blue skies and mod­er­ate tem­per­a­tures.

WHY: The Clare­mont com­bines two ex­cep­tional ex­pe­ri­ences – the ex­clu­sive lux­ury ho­tel ex­pe­ri­ence with the elec­tric­ity and cul­ture of a ma­jor city like San Fran­cisco. While it would be per­fectly en­joy­able to spend your en­tire get­away at the ho­tel, San Fran­cisco is eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble, and Berke­ley it­self of­fers many en­joy­able vis­i­tor attractions.
