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.

Great experience as always - mentioned it was my birthday and was given a nice bottle of wine - thank you! Would have liked the firepits to be on - front desk offered, but didn't want them to go to trouble. Would be ideal to have an interior door to restaurant - in case of bad weather - just a request, the short walk is just fine.

We love this place. Attractive and clever design up the hillside. Pleasant staff. Modern and tasteful decor. One caveat - walls can be thin. We heard our neighbor’s TV which sounded very loud, very late and early in the morning. Staff assured us that they’d handle it, but they didn’t. Great massage from Colleen at the spa.

My husband and I have stayed in hotels that are part of the Small Luxury Hotels network and have always been impressed with the thoughtfulness of design and service of these hotels, so we were excited to see Casa Madrona was part of the network and so close to home for a quick weekend getaway. Generally speaking, the design and accommodations were good to great. The service is where I take issue. I am not a service snob but even I can tell when a place is truly dedicated to service and when a place just goes through the motions. Casa Madrona falls in the latter category. The biggest illustration of this is that I left a jacket and scarf in the closet of my hotel room and when I called to see if anything has been found, I was told nothing was found in, frankly, an air that was along the lines of "this is not my problem anymore." I am 99.9% certain I left the jacket and scarf in the closet (and that remaining .1% is because how can anybody be 100% certain about anything?) and am frustrated that there is not even a strong sense of sympathy, much less effort to address the issue. In short, Casa Madrona doesn't feel like it's a business that takes ownership of its responsibilities to its guests. I would honestly highly recommend Small Luxury Hotels to remove it from its listings. Read less
