We went to the Casa Madrona for a little mid-week getaway and it was even better than expected. Since the hotel was fully booked they upgraded us to a "cottage" room. We had a fireplace and a lovely view of the harbor. It's fun to be in Sausalito in the off season when things are quiet and not crowded. The hotel restaurant, Poggio, is excellent--a little piece of Italy. I highly recommend this hotel.
