Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa

Sausalito, San Francisco

The hotel

No sooner have you stepped foot inside the Casa Madrona than you'll be embraced by the beauty and style of Sausalito with views across Richardson Bay and beyond always complimenting the refined sophistication of the hotel's intimate hillside setting. Breathtaking scenery aside, Sausalito is well-known as being a vibrant hub for artists and like-minded travellers with an abundance of stores, galleries and workshops adding to a charming seaside village atmosphere. A stunning choice of 64 guest rooms provides an elegant approach to life over the bay and if you're looking to rest and relax within classically styled accommodation, which includes state-of-the-art fixtures and fittings, then prepare to have all of your Californian dreams come true. The obvious comparisons to the glamorous resorts of the Mediterranean are endless, so, when in Rome, go Italian, and there's no better cuisine than at the Poggio Trattoria Restaurant which can be found just next door. Finally, the views, the food, the ambience, all add up to a superb slice of life close to San Francisco and if you're hoping to get fit or relax in order to take on those undulating streets then Casa Madrona's spa and fitness suite will have you pampered and ready in no time at all.

I was really excited about visiting Sausalito and my stay here, unfortunately my experience did not meet my expectations. High probability that I wouldn't stay here again. Beautiful city, though!!!!!!!

The hotel is nice and VERY clean. Plus the downstairs restaurant is open at 630am which is nice. Centrally located and easy to get to. Parking across the street from hotel in open lot is a downside as it can get crowded or full. Easy walking area. Lots of places to eat or take the ferry to SF.

We really needed to get away for our anniversary after a year and a half in COVID but didn't want to fly somewhere. We were referred by a normal getaway spot the Hotel Vitale (which is under construction). The Casa Madrona did not disappoint. The Hillside Mountain View room was spacious and spectacularly cleaned and sanitized, really putting ease to our COVID concerns. It is also situated in the middle of Sausalito so there are plenty of shops and restaurants to walk to. The room from our room was of the Bay and harbor, really tranquil and serene. The staff was also super friendly and accommodated my requests for flowers and prosecco for our anniversary and check-in was smooth and quick. If I could offer some suggestions I think the following were the only things I would change: 1) definitely warn guests about the parking, which is super limited and crazy during a 4pm weekend check-in. Understandably during COVID, there isn't a valet, but it would have alleviated some anxiety to know in advance it's a self-park siutation. Took us about 30 minutes to locate a spot and we had to move the car again in the evening. Again, not the end of the world but just something for guests to know about. 2) The Hillside bed was way too creaky and the mattress might need an upgrade. Every time my wife or I got out of bed it was a bit loud but again you can't beat the skylights that sit right above the bed (super dreamy). We would definitely come back and recommend Sushi Ran for dinner and Firehouse Coffee and Tea for coffee and a quick and delicious breakfast bite. Read less

I was in 312. It was modern and clean with a nice deck and view. The hotel has parking and a good restaurant. It’s also located in the heart of the city. They didn’t have bell service or Valet (I’m guessing due to Covid). The only thing I didn’t like about the property was the grounds near my room had a bunch of exposed foam insulation that… Read more

But other than that, I enjoyed the stay and the staff was nice. Read less

Hotel is as advertised. Sausalito is great! For a boutique hotel room rates were not that bad. Amazing food, within walking distance of hotel, in every direction. Poggio's is great! Wait staff at Spinnakers weren't that hospitable. Would definitely recommend Saltio's Crab House and Prime Rib - the prime rib is divine!
