Originally built as a private residence during the Gold Rush, Claremont Club & Spa, a Fairmont Hotel, is a longtime hallmark of California hospitality, sharing rich history and sophistication with visitors for more than a century.

Located just 12 miles from San Francisco, this newly remodeled resort sits nestled between the hills of Berkeley and Oakland, two cities nationally recognized for their culinary and cultural offerings. Often referenced as the White Castle on the Hill, Claremont is uniquely positioned to offer the very best of the Bay Area.
