We loved the Inn! Max at the front desk is th most helpful person we have ever met on our many travels to hotels. From Brian, the valet to the housekeepers and of course front desk, everyone was always smiling and helpful. We were greeted each morning with a complimentary delicious breakfast which was so well maintained. In the evenings...

My husband and I had stayed in The Inn Above Tide approximately 9 years ago. It was a real treat then. This time was even better, I really felt at home and welcomed by the staff. The rooms we had were fabulous. My husband and I stayed in the Vista Suite. The room was spacious and warm. The little touches...

Just on the water and next to the ferry going to SF down town, you cannot find any better location in Sausalito. Just about a couple of miles from Golden Bridge. The Hotel is excellent with a high quality of service of any kind. Rooms are spacious and elegant, most with a terrace facing the sea. Gourmet breakfast is complimentary...

We were so lucky to have chosen this hotel for the last two nights of our holiday. Of course the location right over the water - there is nothing between you and the sea - and the view across the bay to San Francisco, is amazing but the rest of the hotel is excellent too, with comfy beds and a...

This hotel is pricey, but worth it. All rooms are directly over the water and offer unobstructed views of Tiburon, Angel Island, the Oakland Bay Bridge, Alcatraz and the San Francisco skyline (enchanting at night).

My girlfriend and I stayed to celebrate her birthday. She had been wanting to stay there specifically for a long time. We stayed in the skyline suite. Awesome room, huge tub, great size balcony with an amazing view of San Francisco and Alcatraz. You are literally above the tide. They have a wine and cheese hour in the evening. Breakfast...

The hotel is right in the heart of town next to the ferry terminal. Although you could expect this to make it noisy, this wasn't my experience. Hotel was clean and staff were mostly friendly and helpful ( although some more so than others ). There's no restaurant at the hotel but they do serve a continental breakfast and hold...

We recently stayed at the inn for two nights and had an absolutely amazing experience. The location cannot be beaten- the view of the San Francisco lights at night across the bay and the sun rising from the balcony was tranquil and incredible; and steps away from the Ferry. The breakfast and complimentary wine were a fantastic touch to the...

A boutique hotel/inn overlooking the Bay with a panoramic view from the balconies of the small number of rooms from the San Francisco skyline to the Oakland Bay Bridge, Alcatraz and on to Berkeley. A mesmerizing flow of traffic on the water, including the ferries arriving and departing from the dock next door. An easy drive into SF and up...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Panoramic San Francisco Bay views are the signature of The Inn Above Tide. This intimate Sausalito waterfront hotel with 31 rooms and suites is a magnificent location for a uniquely inspiring luxury retreat. Chic and understated interiors lead to simply mesmerizing views from the private furnished room decks. Sited directly on SF Bay, every room has sweeping views of the bay, city skyline, Alcatraz, Angel Island and Marin. The spectacular but brief ferry ride to SF is mere steps from the hotel. Intimately connected to the village of Sausalito, yet magically separated due to its bay front setting, The Inn Above Tide is a minute’s stroll to galleries, restaurants and shops. The scenic vineyards of Sonoma and Napa are just a short drive north. ... more   less
