Ever since the Casa Madrona recently revealed its multi-million dollar renovation, San Francisco has been buzzing about the new Alexandrite Suite. Perched on a hill in Sausalito overlooking San Francisco Bay, Casa Madrona has been around for 125 years. But the new suite—which is located in The Mansion and costs $10,000 a night—ranks among today’s most luxurious accommodations.
First, there’s the luxury of space- try 5,000 square feet of it, with panoramic views from most corners. Then there’s the technology: a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen, the nine-panel media wall for wall-size HD video screenings, a pop-up TV in the footboard of the master suite, and portable Control4 touch screens to control temperature and lighting. Accessed through floor-to-ceiling glass doors, the outdoor deck has a bbq and outdoor bar. (Did we mention the fire pit?)
Service includes a dedicated concierge, private chef, luxury car, and personal trainers. Perhaps the coolest touch of all: a drone can deliver bottles of Champagne to the terrace. The two-bedroom Alexandrite Suite connects to the rest of The Mansion via the fitness center, and it’s also possible to rent out the entire 11-room building.
