California : FRHI and Richard C. Blum have purchased the Claremont Hotel Club & Spa

Berkeley Landmark to Join FRHI’s Growing Portfolio of Leading Luxury Hotels


Rédigé par La Rédaction le Mercredi 26 Mars 2014

FRHI Hotels & Resorts (FRHI), the parent company of luxury and upper upscale hotel brands Raffles Hotels & Resorts, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts, together with California financier Richard C. Blum and his family, have purchased the historic Claremont Hotel Club & Spa in Berkeley, California, it was announced today. FRHI and the Blum family are equal partners and terms were not disclosed.



The purchase supports FRHI’s growth strategy of acquiring strategic assets in key leading markets.

The new owners will begin work on a multi-million dollar capital investment project to update the hotel’s facilities and enhance the Claremont’s stunning architecture, while at the same time preserving and protecting the character and local charm of the Bay Area landmark.

Once the revitalization work is complete, the hotel will join the Fairmont Hotels & Resorts collection, an unrivalled portfolio of hotels that includes famed landmarks such as New York’s The Plaza and The Fairmont San Francisco.

Built in 1915, the Claremont offers 279 guestrooms and suites and is ideally situated at the base of the Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve, overlooking scenic San Francisco Bay.

A grand hotel with a castle-like architecture, the hotel is rich in history and will mark its 100th anniversary in 2015.

The property also includes a Social & Tennis Club with more than 1,500 loyal members who enjoy the hotel amenities, fitness facilities and healthy lifestyle programs.

Club members are an essential part of the Claremont and contribute to the warmth and personality of the property.
