Sausalito: Casa Madrona Hotel; hotel review

101 North 

Casa Madrona Hotel  801 Bridgeway.  63 rooms.  Some kitchens & fireplaces.  Full-service spa.  Pets ok.  Valet parking $24. 

Nestled against a picturesque hill above Bridgeway, this hotel offers lodging in either a converted 1885 Victorian house in back--the oldest structure in Sausalito, it is now dubbed The Mansion--or in newer, tastefully decorated contemporary rooms sprinkled down the hillside amid fragrant, blooming gardens and featuring water views.

The Alexandrite Suite at Casa Madrona Hotel in Sausalito, California

The Mansion features tall doors, lovely original wood and tile work, and an ultra-luxurious Alexandrite Suite that is popular with celebs and which has its own exercise room and a secret passage.  Think Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd from the past; lips are more tightly sealed about the present due to non-disclosure clauses. 

Poggio Trattoria The Alexandrite in Sausalito, California

Under separate ownership, elegant Poggio Trattoria specializes in classic northern Italian fare.  Diners feast on delectable items such as crostini topped with Tuscan chicken liver, twice-cooked Tuscan vegetable-and-bread soup, and delicate wood-roasted whole fish with fennel.  Rustic pastas and grilled chicken are also very good, and don’t miss the killer Caesar salad.  Reservations advised.  Valet parking $24.
