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.
