THE CLAREMONT RESORT SPA TENNIS CLUB
41 Tunnel Road
Berkeley, CA 94705 USA
The gleaming white Claremont (long lovingly known as The Wedding Cake on the Hill) stretches out above the East Bay, facing west over the Bay, the bridges and San Francisco to capture all the sunsets and bright lights of the Bay Area.
Built in 1915 in a stately Victorian style, this lovely lady has hosted countless balls and special events over the decades. Refreshed and refurbished in 1994, the hotel is now a Resort, Spa and Tennis Club, catering to the health and fitness needs of guests in an elegant setting.
Conference and banquet facilities in abundance inside are complemented by a 22-acre resort and spa with beautifully landscaped gardens and breathtaking views from wooded hills. The $6 million world-class European Spa includes ten tennis courts, two swimming pools and a par course.
After your workout or meetings, re-group in the Pavilion Restaurant's quiet, romantic atmosphere. And don't worry about menu choices. The Pavilion recommends their Prix-Fixe Four-Course Dinner Menu (varying entrees). You might choose a dessert of Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce. Or you may prefer to go dancing in the Terrace Lounge and check out various non-alcoholic Smart Drinks.
At the end of the day, the lights of San Francisco might draw you to The City, much as they did the Claremont's guests back in the Roaring '20s. Unless, of course, you would rather sit back and watch the show from the rooftop balcony of your Tower Suite.
