It was a special visit for our anniversary. The service was exceptional and friendly. The room was fantastic with amazing views. Could not have been a better experience. Great location in the city. We walked all around.

Room Tip: The higher the floor and room number, the better!

They did a great job remodeling the hillside cottages! But, the inability to adjust the hot water in the showers...not so good. The noise of the street is still disruptive in the early AM and Early PM but the room was very well appointed. The fireplaces need to be Gas! as during the spare the air days (which we couldn't burn during our stay and you pay more for these rooms) you cant burn wood, plus, wood is too smoky in a small environment. View... Fabulous! Staff helpful, but got disconnected trying to get connected to the restaurant downstairs. The shopping I Sausalito is getting really TACKY, Shame! So, location is all about the view as many of the restaurants are high priced for quality (except Poggio's which is downstairs and very good and reasonable for the area, but not a lot of view....

Room Tip: If you don't care about the view, then courtyard may be quieter, but the view is great, so pick...

It was a pleasure accommodating you in one of our lower hillside cottages. The restoration of the historic mansion on the upper hillside (including stunning gas fireplaces in the Junior Suites!) is nearly complete and we are looking forward to hopefully welcoming you back soon and introducing you to a re-imagined Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa in 2014.

Happy New Year!

I stay here often for work and have extended a few times for a nice weekend. The hotel is in a perfect location with easy access to the ferry to the city, facing the marina with restaurants and shops right there. The staff is friendly and attentive always. you can also easily drive to the nearby beaches or wineries for the day. It's a gem and would stay here if only traveling for leisure as well.

The hotel without question is fantastic! The setting is beautiful and views are amazing. Nick in the lobby not only provided exemplary customer service, but has a great sense of humor - a must for me! More about our room below. On about Gary…I get regular massages and get them wherever I travel all over the world. If we can agree massage is a healing art, then Gary is da Vinci! So, if you book a room a massage is a must! Hands-down (pun intended) the best massage ever!

Room Tip: We stayed in Hillside Cottage Balcony - great!!

I stayed at the Casa Madrona Hotel with my girlfriend for a short weekend getaway. Our room had a view of the Bay with a balcony...it was surreal. We were able to sit by the fire at night with a real fireplace...the room was modern, spacious and clean. The bed was the most comfortable I have slept on in a hotel. The staff were very courteous, accommodating and professional.

This boutique hotel is on the main street of Bridgeway (in the middle of town and entrance to the touristy section) in Sausalito, CA. The location is great because you can basically walk to all of the village restaurants and sites. However, if you want to take advantage of some of the less touristy, more local restaurant hangouts, you probably need to drive to them unless you like long walks (1-2 miles). Although the rooms facing the street have a bay view over the marina parking lot across the street, I do not recommend paying extra for the water view because it really isn't that impressive.

The hotel itself is very nice with free wifi, community computer access just off the lobby, and generally spacious rooms with high ceilings, nice furnishings, safes, coffee makers and nicely arranged and supplied bathrooms. The hotel itself doesn't really have a restaurant, although "Poggio" (Italian food) is technically in the same building. This is not much of a problem at all since the hotel has restaurants around it and is more than 1-2 blocks away from most of the village's restaurants. Another small issue was the louver windows in our room did not lock and one didn't actually close without help from someone pushing on it from the outside.

The front desk manager, Annie, was fantastic and very attentive to what is happening at the front desk! She tried very hard and mostly succeeded in accommodating our requests.

Room Tip: Although the rooms facing the street have a bay view over the marina parking lot across the street...
