Arriving late in San Francisco from the East coast, the short drive across the bridge to Sausalito was perfect. And the Hotel Sausalito was just as perfect! Our room was small but nicely decorated, spotless and very cozy. The friendly front desk person gave us good suggestions and directions for an evening snack. And what a treat to wake up and look out over the Bay! We had nice coffee and pastries from the excellent coffee shop next door (a voucher comes with the room). After a nice morning chat with the very congenial, imported from Scotland, owner, we had a great walk along the waterfront before check out. We decided that when we return to SF, this is the place to stay and use the 'commuter' ferry outside the door for visiting the city.
