We live in San Francisco and had our wedding in San Rafael. We had one night to spend in a hotel of our choice before we headed out to a more tropical destination. I wanted to choose a hotel that would serve as a spectacular start to our honeymoon and the Claremont was perfect! The service at the hotel was Fantastic! They even treated us to champagne and chocolates in our room since it was our honeymoon. After the stress and excitement of our wedding we were very happy we stayed here for our first night of our honeymoon and would recommend it to anyone. We spent some time at the pool, which is a Bay Area luxury. (We wish they had more hot tubs on the premises.)
We had just seen the movie "The Grand Budapest" and loved the idea of historical hotels and their role in a "civilized" society. This seems up there with "The Grand Budapest". We had a lovely late lunch on their balcony restaurant looking at the San Francisco skyline while eating superb oysters and enjoying delicious drinks. The service at the restaurant was decent. It was graduation weekend and they seemed unprepared for the influx. We were on our honeymoon and nothing could phase us so we didn't mind.
