Claremont Club & Spa, a Fairmont Hotel

Claremont Club & Spa, a Fairmont Hotel

A vintage resort in the Berkeley Hills

Bright and white, with an iconic tower and elegant roofline, the sprawling Claremont, in Oakland’s posh Claremont district, stands out against the forested East Bay hills like a wedding cake. This 1915 landmark feels removed from the urban bustle, even though it’s only a few minutes from Oakland’s mega-hot dining and arts scene and the urban cool of Berkeley.

The Claremont has some lovely perks, including flawless panoramas of San Francisco and the bay. You can bat a ball around the tennis courts, or do some laps in the pool. Limewood Bar & Restaurant, the resort’s signature restaurant, offers casual California cuisine in a vibrant setting. The Lobby Lounge & Bar serves craft cocktails and Afternoon Tea amid stunning Bay views. And The Fairmont Spa at the Claremont is the ultimate oasis with 32-treatment rooms, luxurious relaxation areas for men and women, and a full spa treatment menu.
