About Cavallo PointNestled at the northern end of the Golden Gate Bridge in historic Fort Baker, within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Cavallo Point – the Lodge at the Golden Gate welcomes you to a luxurious hotel experience achieved with an underlying green and socially responsible ethos. Certified LEED Gold, Cavallo Point was named the #1 Best Hotel in the San Francisco Bay Area by Travel+Leisure.
Green PhilosophyCavallo Point's long list of initiatives to support sustainability, stewardship and preservation reflects the commitments of all stakeholders involved in this treasured Golden Gate National Park site. Since the project's inception, environmental initiatives have been a priority. U.S. Green Building Council had awarded LEED Gold Certification to Cavallo Point, after myriad efforts to make the project as green as possible. These include dozens of activities, among them re-use of historic materials, landscape restoration with native plants, and use of green building elements. The lodge also works to meet the Green Seal Environmental Standard for U.S. Lodging Properties. Some eco-efforts create awareness among visitors, like naming our meeting rooms after local rare, threatened and endangered species, such as the Mission Blue butterfly. Cavallo Point is proud to have received numerous honors for its green efforts.
The Cavallo Point FundWhat is the Cavallo Point Fund? The Cavallo Point Fund is a nonprofit entity that provides a simple mechanism for our hotel guests to give back to our community by making contributions that are distributed to local charitable organizations. How does the Cavallo Point Fund work? To implement this program, a discretionary charge of $3.00 per room night is added to the guest’s invoice. However, those who do not wish to participate may opt out without question at check-in or check-out. For what are contributions to the Cavallo Point Fund used? 100% of all funds collected for the Cavallo Point Fund are used for charitable purposes and transmitted to tax-exempt charitable organizations that qualify under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Fund recipients are selected and amounts distributed at least quarterly.
