AT A GLANCE
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.
