“Picture Perfect Peaceful Place”
Reviewed October 11, 2008

Cavallo Point is a new resort located at the historic Fort Baker. I recently stayed there with my wife and two daughters. We had a great time. We were in a historic room that overlooked the San Francisco Bay and Parade Grounds. The rooms are beautiful the beds are too comfortable and it is hard to leave once you are in them.

The first night was very romantic with the fog and ship horns in the background as ships came through the Golden Gate and cruised by. A very unique and calming setting for the Bay area.

Saturday morning we sat on the porch of the Murray Circle Restaurant and watch the Golden Gate Bridge appear and disappear through the fog. A very cool and memorable experience.

We caught a ferry to SF for the day and after a day of hustle and bustle in the big city it was great to return to the peaceful resort. It is a treasure to have such a nice resort a stone throw from SF.

Sure to be a popular spot soon, so check it out.

We (my wife and 6 month old) visited SF and stayed at Cavallo in September. The hotel and the grounds are magnificient.
The service is great, we had no problems with check-in and the staff were very helpful with all our baby gear. The hotel gave us a complimentary upgrade to a suite in the historic buildings and it was incredible. The buildings are old, but have incredible character. There are a lot of nice touches such as complimentary croissants and coffee in the morning in the lobby and tea and water in the rooms.
It is a short walk to the water where seals and birds frolic. Deer are seen in the trees. It is very easy to drive to SF from Cavallo Point and there are innumerable trails for hiking and biking.
In summary, I could not find anything to complain about at this hotel. It is in a beautiful setting, the rooms are comfortable and well appointed and the service is first class. I would happily bring my family back.

  • Liked — The location
  • Disliked — It would have been nice to have a "casual" dinner/lunch place.
