Overview

Marconi Historic State Park is located on majestic Tomales Bay. Our 40 hotel rooms have been recently refreshed with local linens and art. We formerly were only a conference center, but now we welcome weddings, receptions, reunions and overnight guests. F Redwood Dining Room serves breakfast to our overnight guests using local cheese, meats and veggies. Our handmade 10' communal tables encourage conversation with other guests. Or, sit on the deck overlooking the 62 acre Historic Park. Hiking trails loop around the property with views of the pristine Bay. Kayaking, wine and oyster tasting, beaches, bike trails all are nearby.

The Marconi Hotel is a fascinating forgotten piece of radio history near Marshall, CA. Guglielmo Marconi's plan (Nobel Laureate 1909) was to link the globe with a series of high-powered wireless transmitters and receivers. The Marconi Wireless Receiving Station in Marshall opened in 1914. The...More

I've visited here twice but not stayed or taken meals. Both times I enjoyed reading in the public library/meeting rooms & also hiking some of the trails on the property. The place was quiet; I didn't see any children.

Perfect place to get away or hold a company retreat. The chefs are phenomenal. Only T.V. is in a meeting room next to the office. We would live here if we could afford it. One of our favorite places on earth!
