I was worried about some of the reviews here, but my only regret about the Cavallo Point Lodge is that we only stayed there two nights. We were there during good weather so we were able to hike and get plenty of camera shots. The grounds are as picturesque as the ads. I couldn't believe such a nice place existed practically under the Golden Gate bridge. There are views you can't get anywhere else. The service was impeccable, the room (a king suite) was well designed and comfortable. The spa is excellent and my buddy (a connisseur) had a wonderful deep tissue massage.
Now here are some tips you need to know. We stayed in a contemporary room; they are the only ones with views of the bridge, however, even those views are obscured by trees. Our room was the furthest to the end and still had a problem, so I think others would be even less lucky. Be prepared to walk up and down little hills alot to get around. Our room had a fantastic soaking tub, the most comfortable tub I've ever used. So if you're a fan of bath ice cream, bring that since they don't sell it at this resort. The only real downside of the hotel is the internet. It is free, but the bandwidth is only 130kbps, which is twice the speed of dialup. That was the speed whether you used wifi or a wired connection. It was too frustrating for me to use. The fitness center is excellent, 24x7 access with 4 treadmills, 4 ellipticals, and 2 bikes, mostly all Precor. Lastly, the Murray Circle restaurant was really fabulous. It has a Michelin 1-star rating, and suprisingly it is very reasonable. My buddy had the $85 grand tasting menu which ended up having about 10 courses. It took us 2.5 unhurried hours to eat dinner. I had the baby abalone, and that was one of the best dishes I've ever eaten.
We can't wait to go back. Right now there is a 50% off special on Sunday night stays for locals; you should take advantage of that, as the lodge is pretty expensive. But it is worth that special stay.
