To start with, the Signature Massage I indulged in was amazing, from the therapist's technique to the lovely spa environment. Farley Bar's excellent drinks and snacks made for a lively pre-dinner cocktail hour, especially sitting on the porch with stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge and SF Bay. Dinner at Murray Circle was fabulous, not only because of the...

We visited Sausalito and had lunch at Cavallo Point. It was unbelievable. Off the beaten track, it is a must for the food, service and atmosphere. It is a cab ride from the ferry but well worth the trip.

Very beautiful hotel located in the outskirts of SF. Check in was hassle free as was check out. Hotel room was more like a small flat so lots of space and it was also clean. Hotel location mainly serves people who would like to hike and be outside of the city. If you would like to wonder around the city...

Your comment rings true to us and to our fellow past, present and future guests of Cavallo Point. Many guests that choose our resort come to "get away" and...

Reviewed 12 October 2016

Since the Post Ranch Inn is basically our favorite hotel ever, expectations were high for Cavallo Point. It's an apples-oranges comparison but we weren't disappointed. Wonderful service, a very special historic location and the right luxurious-yet-post-hippie-Marin-County sensibility. That said, some of the public spaces (restaurant, bar, lobby) could really use an interior design refresh. The location is obviously AMAZING and...

Great trip. Our first in a historic room. We really enjoyed it. We were in room 803. No view but close to the restaurant. One big hat tip to the restaurant staff who made us a Bloody marry despite being out of mix. We were very appreciative.

Spa, hotel, and restaurants were wonderful but the price point is too high. No A/C in the hotel but usually not a problem in the fog. Everything in the fridge was complimentary but you have to call room service for ice.

We went to a wedding reception here. It was drop dead gorgeous! Amazing view of the Golden Gate Bridge, inviting porches, fantastic food. I hear the hotel there is also great. Hope to come back and try it soon! (I felt like we were in a movie, the setting was jawdropping!)
