Claremont Hotel offers millennium spa packages

BERKELEY -- The Claremont Hotel and Spa, a fixture in the San Francisco Bay Area for nearly 100 years, is preparing to welcome a new century with a three-night millennium package. The package -- from Dec. 30 to Jan. 2 and priced at $2,999 per couple -- includes a variety of celebratory New YearÆs events. Chief among them are a New YearÆs Eve gala dinner in the resortÆs Empire Ballroom, or for an additional $400 per couple, a gourmet dinner in the four-diamond restaurant, JordanÆs.

Also included is an opening night Casino Night dinner and reception. Under California law, of course, the ôgamblingö is just in fun. Full breakfast on New YearÆs Eve and New YearÆs Day and a farewell brunch on Sunday, Jan. 2, round out the meal components of the package.

Millennium guests will be allowed access to the resortÆs hospitality lounge, which features billiards, pub games, refreshments and a large-screen TV, which, given the time of year, is likely to be tuned to college football bowl games. And they will receive a $100 voucher to be applied against the price of spa services or tennis lessons, goods in the resortÆs retail shops or in its Bayview Cafe and Presto Cafe restaurants. Complimentary tennis court time, VIP preferred spa reservations, free parking and a commemorative gift are also a part of the ClaremontÆs millennium package.

Additional nights are available at $179 per couple. The 279-room resort is just a 20-minute drive from downtown San Francisco on 22 acres of landscaped gardens with spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline and bay.
