I stayed for only one night but would have liked to stayed much longer.
The hotel is nicely located about half an four from the City and has great views of the bay, bridge and city. The complex is a combination of both restored historical buildings and modern apartments which actually works quite well.
I stayed in a junior suite (1904) which was very spacious and extremely stylish.
The food was excellent as was the service. My stay was too short to try the spa or gym but I will certainly try to visit again.

Room Tip: Suite 1904 has great views and is a good size

Just spent an incredible night at Cavallo Point. The staff was delightful, rooms large and extremely comfortable,the spa was beautiful and the food and service at Murray Circle was excellent. We can't wait to return to this unique wonderful resort with beautiful views of the GG bridge. If you are traveling to the SF area or you are a local looking for a romantic night away this is the place.

The homes of the officers at historic Fort Baxter may have been quite crowded if they had to provide space for an entire family. But if they are divided up into hotel rooms then the space is far more generous than what you find in your standard hotel room of a large chain.
The little houses that are part of the hotel compound provide a lot of personal charm. You feel very far away from the busy city life but when you see the Golden Gate bridge behind the little hill you're reminded that it takes only a short drive to get back into San Francisco.

I love visiting via Historic Hotels. They have managed to keep the historic charm alive and provide great modern amenities. Just be sure to request your sofa bed linens with your reservation or before you go to dinner. We had to wait for almost an hour.

I agree with the previous reviewers that the food from Murray Circle is great and the view from the breakfast window or porch can't be beat!

We'll go back for sure.

I stayed at Cavallo Point this past weekend as part of the birthday getaway weekend. The Fort Baker buildings look unchanged on the outside and this is a good thing. The interiors of the old buildings are beautiful and up to date. We had breakfast in the Murray Circle restaurant and it was great food. It's a wonderful place to walk around during the day and easy to get to downtown Sausalito or the ferry to San Francisco via their shuttle. The staff were very helpful and curteous.
We stayed in the modern buildings which are all green construction and have stunning views of the Golden Gate bridge. The room was large and had good amenities, mini fridge, electric tea kettle, coffee maker, robes and gas fireplace. The only downside was that we were on the ground floor and could easily hear the folks upstairs walking about. The outdoor lighting at night is kept low so if you are going to walk around, bring a flashlight.

Room Tip: Get an upstairs room if you stay in the modern buildings.

If you stand on the property at Cavallo Point Lodge in Sausalito and look into the distance you will be thrilled. The view of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay, and the City itself are gorgeous. You can also take some great hikes over the Marin County Highlands to the Pacific Ocean and some more breathtaking sights. Unfortunately, things are not so good when you focus on the actually lodge. The property itself, a retrofitted army base, is quite unattractive, the rooms (at least those called "contemporary') are inferior to what you would get in a Holiday Inn at about twice the price, the lobby is minimalist to the point of being silly and to get anywhere you have to call and wait for a golf cart for transportation.

Room Tip: The "historic rooms" may be better.

Absolutely lovely. The lodge is set in Golden Gate National Park, which is minutes from San Francisco and Sausalito and has a beautiful view of the bay. It is a special place. In restoring the buildings, the spirit of the grounds was respected. My husband and I stayed in the one of restored Fort Baker officer's housing rooms which was really nice with a cozy gas fireplace and a shared front porch. The bed linens, bath towels, robe and cozy slippers were all top quality. The grounds offer serenity and stunning views. In the morning, the complementary coffee and muffin was much appreciated as was the turn down service in the evening. If you have young kids, the Discovery Museum is adjacent to the hotel property.
