The story of this historic boutique hotel dates back to 1885, when William Barrett, Secretary-Treasurer for the San Francisco Gas and Electric Company and his wife Clara built a lavish "casa" on a hillside overlooking Sausalito. The location provided a wide-angle view of San Francisco Bay Area, teeming with powerful freight ships, elegant yachts and side-wheeler ferryboats. In 1980 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a treasured landmark. In November 2003, the historic hotel saw the addition of Poggio, an increase in the number of hotel rooms from 34 to 63, and the addition of a spectacular, 3,000-square-foot spa, a boardroom, a private dining room, and three new function rooms. In 2010, MetWest Terra took over ownership and management, completing a top-to-bottom renovation on the hotel, blending together its rich history with contemporary design and modern luxury. Enhancements were made to the spa, hillside cottages and historic Mansion, restructuring and redesigning its 11 rooms including the new, stand-out 5,000-square-foot Alexandrite Suite, seven upper hillside cottages and the 1,700-square-foot Junto meeting and event space. Today, the Mansion and its offerings exemplify innovation, technology, luxury, service and style, while staying true to the property’s historic roots.

The property offers 63 guest accommodations including 22 Hillside Cottages, many with private decks, fireplaces and San Francisco Bay views, 10 Victorian Rooms located atop the property, within the historic William Barrett Mansion, and 31 Contemporary Rooms in a newly renovated wing designed with a contemporary bay side decor. In 2010 and 2011, Casa Madrona underwent a multi-million dollar renovation. The interior design by Truex-Cullins Interiors incorporated modern design amenities while retaining its historic charm. Amenities include flat panel televisions, pillow-top mattresses, iHome and/or wake-up service, daily housekeeping services, turn down service, Wi-Fi throughout the property, and in-room dining.

The hotel’s new 3,000 square-foot Spa at Casa Madrona focuses on the restorative and life-giving power of water therapy through an extensive treatment menu and nourishing products from the bay. The menu for The Spa at Casa Madrona is designed around the concept of the Four Elements. Ancient wisdoms described the world and everything in it as being composed of differing proportions of the elements: Earth, Fire, Air and Water. Skilled therapists use four distinct and unique blends of aromatic botanicals – each representing the four elements – which will guide you to a place of healing, relaxation and renewal. The Spa menu of services includes massages, body therapies, skin therapies and nail care.

With approximately 4,000 square feet of flexible event space, Casa Madrona is a splendid destination for meetings and events – especially corporate retreats against the backdrop of the world’s most romantic cityscape.
