We loved our stay in the Grande Dame of Berkeley! It has been upgraded, yet it retains the charm of an older, lovely hotel.

Nice Hotel close to the University of California.

Pros: Proximity to UC, Berkeley. Has great swimming pool. Has tennis courts if you play.
Cons: Flexibility on price when you have a customer who wants to stay an extra day.
Location: Cal football and basketball games. Visit U.C., Berkeley. See what all the Nobel Prizes are about. Close to Oakland and Frisco. Views.
I initially booked one night via travelocity. On check out morning I asked if I could stay an extra night for same price. (This after the registration desk the night before said they had a lot of empty rooms in case I wanted to add an extra night.) The woman behind the desk said I would have to pay the new (and higher) rate. Well, the ~ $100 higher rate did not comfort my fiscal prudence, so I said, "Thank you, no", checked out and went to a 1/3rd cheaper hotel which I was completely satisfied with. I guess the Claremont would prefer an empty room to > $250.
