Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

Do your guest rooms have air conditioning?

Our guest rooms do not offer air conditioning. Our location just off the San Francisco Bay presents us with a mild climate, typically making air conditioning unnecessary. However, for those extra warm days (and we do get some of those!), fans are available upon request and we'd be happy to deliver one to your room. 

Which areas of the property are being renovated?

We are embarking on an exciting renovation and reconcepting of our dining outlets, Farley Bar and Murray Circle, both located in Building 602. At least one restaurant will remain open at all times, serving three meals a day.

We are also renovating the historic bowling alley(!), adjacent to Callippe Ballroom, which will soon be available for private event rentals. Finally, we will be doing some exterior painting and roof repair on Building 602 as well as 601 (where Reception and the Mercantile are located).

There is no renovation work happening at the Healing Arts Center & Spa or in any building where guest rooms are located.

When does renovation work take place?

Renovation work will take place during the hours of 9am to 5pm, Monday through Saturday.

Will there be noise?

We anticipate little to no noise impact for lodge guests, as the renovations are mainly indoors and are not taking place near guest rooms or the spa.

Will guest access to any common areas be restricted?

No, all of the regularly accessible common areas will remain open to lodge guests.

When will the new restaurants open?

We plan to open our new dining outlets in September. We can’t wait to share them with you!

I have food allergies. Can I still attend all classes?

Our classes typically feature a fairly diversified menu and food items. Please make us aware of any allergies or dietary restrictions when making your reservation, and we’ll make every effort within reason to accommodate you.

What if I want to make a night of it and stay at the hotel, can I receive a special rate?

Yes, there is a special room rate associated with the Cooking School. Contact the Cavallo Point Reservations Desk at 888.651.2003.

Will there be enough food served to constitute an entire meal?

It depends on the type of class. For the most part, we really like to cook, so you won’t go away hungry. But be sure to check the class descriptions, as food service will be noted.

How many instructors are there in each class?

Varies by type of class, anywhere from 1 – 4 chef assistants.
