We’ve stayed here multiple times and it is a lovely setting. The largest flaw is their lack of a pool (they have a “meditation” pool which is tiny and located inside their adults-only spa). We love the proximity to the Bay Area Discovery Museum for our children which is across the field. The parking is also a nuisance since you have to valet your car and get a ride to your room every time you leave.

We had dinner at Chef Tony Adams "Chef's Counter" last night. It was one of the most amazing experiences ever. The Cavallo Point Cooking School offers this once a month for 6 people only.

It's a 3 hour dining adventure where you are treated like royalty while Chef Tony prepares all courses in front of you, explaining everything he is doing and carrying on a conversation with the guests.

Tony's passion for food and outgoing personality is infectious and the food, well, it's unique and unlike anything I've ever tasted. He spends over 2 weeks planning the menu for this one evening a month.

Stunning. If you have the opportunity to attend, take it!

Oasis just over the bridge from SF. Lodging has character and great surroundings. Food is excellent but loses a star because there could be more vegetarian options. If you like to run or hike there are some great routes right there.

The lodge was beautiful, quiet, and a great place for our professional meeting. The staff was helpful, friendly, and courteous. The food was great. In fact everything was great, so the 4/5 rating is only because it's not the fanciest, but for a more rustic setting it was basically perfect.

The hot tub is in a good spot. The view is beautiful. You can get a great view of the Golden gate bridge. It is only a few minutes walking, so you can see it up close. The rooms higher on the hill all have full windows which give a great view. The area is very windy. It is much cooler than nearby areas. Definitely bring an extra jacket.

We love Cavallo Point. It's beautiful and peaceful tucked under the Golden Gate. The rooms are so comfortable. I always sleep so well there. The bar and restaurant so good and entertaining. A top rated resort.

Beautiful hotel in an historic and absolutely gorgeous setting. Depending on your room you may have to hike up a hill, but don't let it discourage you. Beautiful views of the Golden gate bridge and easy access to Sausalito and the Marin Headlands

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night and overall had a great time. The room was very comfortable and the grounds were beautiful. The only negative we experienced was upon check-in. Our room which was guaranteed to be ready at 4 p.m was not actually given to us until 5 p.m. We then had to rush to make our dinner reservation at 5:45.

The one of the very finest hotels in the bay if not the world. Such a hidden gem. Well worth the drive just for lunch in the restaurant if not a weekend getaway or vacation. The peacefulness is striking given it's proximity to San Francisco. With amazing views of the Golden Gate and the city. Breathtaking.

This is a great escape from the city. We stayed in one of the old buildings, but it was really well maintained. It was very peaceful and we could bring our dog. Would love to come back for dinner and try one of the more modern rooms on the hillside. They have balconies and look like they offer more natural light.

The lodge is situated at Fort Baker so it's very spread out. I was attending a meeting and our meeting room was the old chapel. It was a bit difficult to find the building. But it was a great setting and the view was amazing. It was my first visit, so I'm not used to the layout, which is the only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating.

My family and I went for the Christmas buffet and while the food was good the selection was pretty limited. However the overall ambience, beautiful views outside and food quality made up for it. Definitely recommend.

Some of the best views of the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge and Bay. Sunset and sunrise were unbeatable. We returned to the room to find our sheets turned down and lavender spritz available to relax if we wanted it. Chocolate at the bedside, and the shampoo and body wash were lavender too, very relaxing, but very pricey hotel. I recommend you walk down to the marina and to the old battery in the evening or early morning.

Great place with a great view. Just be aware that the pictures show a view of the Golden gate Bridge but your room isn't actually with a view. That requires a huge upgrade free. Also, the fitness room costs more even though there is already a resort fee. The pastries at breakfast were good and the staff was friendly.

Great location near to the Golden Gate, awesome place very open and classic. There two kinds of room but go for the classic. There is also a restaurant with very basic food, well prepared. Depending on the day you stay classes are given, just go or apply for free.

We visited for lunch and had an issue where the host seated an angry customer who was after us on the wait list ahead of us. We had 3 children under 2, so ended up having to leave without lunch as a result. We did enjoy a cocktail on their porch, which was beautiful.

Lovely setting overlooking Golden Gate Bridge and SF Bay. Old style buildings but modernised with high spec bathrooms, great WiFi and comfy beds. Free wine hour in the evening and pastries in the morning. Great location with lots of walking trails.

Beautiful location with the quintessential Golden Gate view. The rooms in the older houses are very large and redone with a classic decor. The bar is a bit tight, so not great for a large group (unless you have the whole place rented). Fire pits are a fun place to relax in the evening as are the rocking chairs that are on every porch. If you are looking for activities you can take part in the planned activities or do a self guided hike/walk. Sausalito is a 5 min ride away with plenty of bars and restaurants.

I used to be involved with this place during construction, but have no association for about 10 years. I've been lucky enough to experience a lot of luxury properties with high-end spas, and I admit this is a place that has something extremely special, and it's situated in a world-class place, with Incredible service-oriented hospitality. Restaurant, hotel, or Spa, it's absolutely gorgeous and a wonderful experience.

We stayed here in August 2015 and 2016. The first time with our teenage sons. They really enjoyed having a separate room in the traditional remodeled rooms. We woke up one morning to Ferrari's lining the drive. My 16 year old son was in heaven! They were getting ready for some sort of race I suppose.

Idyllic location. Was there for a business meeting and it couldn't be a better location. The room and the food were great. Not sure how much it cost since I was a guest at the meeting, but would definitely suggest checking it out as an option for just about anyone.

Highly recommended.

Great cocktails.
Murray circle restaurant not the best . Food was great wine list amazing. Service was sketchy, bad communication with the kitchen. Not waiters fault entirely.
But, this is a must go to venue.
Show up an hour early and have a cocktail on the veranda with a view of the golden gate Bridge. Stupendous!

When I first got into san Fransisco I couldn't wait to leave, my hotel was in an awful location and I had a horrible first impression, luckily I was able to last minute get a room at cavallo point. They made my stay so comfortable and it was absolutely beautiful the management is incredible and the staff is some of the friendliest people I've met!

Two tiers of rooms, the older style that is renovated interiors of the barracks and new construction of very modern style. Both are great, but both are expensive. The amenities are great, especially the spa, which has an excellent steam room, hot tub, and "meditation pool" which is kept above 90°F. The views are stunning, and the golden gate bridge is a few minutes away by foot.

The on-site bar is solid with an extensive menu and good service. The restaurant is a bit expensive for what it is, but the food is solid.

They also have free shuttles to and from San Francisco, as well as downtown Sausalito. It's a premium location with premium pricing, but if you're looking to treat yourself, it's a great getaway just north of the city.

Would be a 5 star review but for the little things. I should be out enjoying the beautiful place, enjoying the nature hikes. Spa and fitness center were great. The bar while overpriced had good service and ambiance. The room was great, except. Internet access was spotty at best. A cisco guest solution with a captive portal that didn't work half the time and was slow when it did was incredibly frustrating. A tv with aux input disabled meant I couldn't play a film from my laptop when the internet access didn't work. Good job on getting 80% of the way there. The last 20% matters and being cheap on internet and trying to make an extra few percent on tv made this experience considerably less enjoyable for me. Hopefully someone from Cavallo Point reads this and realizes the extra $1.27 they made on me watching a movie wasn't worth it.

After attending a business event here, I was absolutely stunned by the beauty. While the location is truly breathtaking just overlooking the city and the bridge, it's clear that the team works to go above and beyond to make guests' stay truly enjoyable and exciting. I would love to go back for an overnight stay and attend some of the activities that they feature daily (yoga, biking, etc)
