With a dazzling waterfront location in the Golden Gate National Park, the luxurious Cavallo Point Lodge was rehabilitated as a beautiful urban getaway with sweeping San Francisco waterfront views and enough distractions that you may never make it into the city (which is only a mere 15-minute drive across the Golden Gate Bridge). The Cavallo Point Lodge’s 142 generously-sized rooms and suites guarantee peaceful nights and beautiful park or water views from every room, many overlooking the sparkling San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. Choose from the gorgeous Historic Lodging, a modernised take on the lodge’s original character and design, or the hillside Contemporary Lodgings which have been built to the highest standards of ecological architecture and feature special details such as gas fireplaces in every room. The hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Murray Circle, serves fresh, seasonally-driven cuisine and offers an excellent wine list with many local, up-and-coming labels from Napa Valley. Guests can also enjoy indulgent spa treatments, cooking classes at the hotel’s cooking school, and the area's best cycling and hiking in the surrounding forest. If you're looking for a peaceful retreat that’s within easy reach of Downtown San Francisco, Cavallo Point Lodge is a positively enchanting escape.
