We spent two nights here just after Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful view of the Golden Gate right from our room. The style of the modern buildings might be a little too modern for some people, but you can't beat the views. The staff are great and the food is wonderful. The location provides easy access to Sausalito and the... More

Cavallo Point is in one of the most beautiful places in Marin County. Lovely buildings with views to die for. There are plenty of places to sit and relax and enjoy the surroundings while having a meal or a drink. This is why we chose Cavallo.

Well, I'm afraid I will not visit this hotel anymore, it's nice, the room are decent but I don't think it worth what they charging per night -- and they charge extra $29 for valet (which we did not use) and complimentary wine in their building (which we didn't use either) Now, this might be different to others, some might...

Stayed here on my own for a few days. Such a treat to be near the Golden Gate Bridge. Staff are friendly. I was first assigned to an older room.
