Cavallo Point Lodge

Sausalito, CA

Cavallo, a former  army base turned hotel right next to the world's most beautiful bridge, gets major points for its "soulful, creative use of a historic site," landing it on our list of Bay Area contenders. The perks? Free yoga in a converted chapel, massages at the "cathedral-ceilinged" spa, and hard-to-find apertifs and beers at Farley Bar, right next to the Michelin-starred Murray Circle restaurant. And just steps from your room are coastal trails that "zigzag for miles through the Marin Headlands." $280/$360 for historic, $330/$360 for modern; 142 rooms & suites;

SCORE: 82.5
