#1 of 4 hotels in Sausalito
Travelers' Choice
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.

The Inn Above Tide is located in Sausilito right on the bay. The views from the magnificent rooms are magical. The decor is stunning. Be warned, outside is an expensive and very touristy area. However, it is not cheap to stay here unless you are celebrating a really romantic visit.

The Inn Above Tide is a gem. What we loved right away is the attention to each and every detail: from the excellent welcome service to the fresh gardenia flowers in the washroom -- each and every note of the experience at Inn Above Tide is thoughtful without pretense. We loved the thoughtful character of including binoculars on the deck, complementary wine at happy hour, the option to have breakfast delivered to your room, the all-women illustrated custom coloring book, custom one-of-a-kind wall paper... we could go on and on! The Inn is conveniently located in the heart of Sausalito, with several delicious restaurants, spots for people watching and tons of birds and nature just steps away. The staff was welcoming with authenticity, and the views of downtown San Francisco unparalleled in all of the Bay Area. Romance, taste, class and style define the Inn Above Tide. You will not regret a moment of your stay!!

This Inn has been on my bucket list for over 10 years. We finally made it and it was so worth it. From check-in to checkout we were treated well and with genuine friendliness and professionalism. While our room was on the smaller it had a balcony, gas fireplace and amazing views. We wouldn’t change a thing. This Inn is worth every penny and you will be delighted with your stay here. We plan on going back.

Wish I had many more days and nights at this special hotel. I can’t say enough about the service and the quality of the entire hotel. Upon arrival I had just missed the wine and cheese time in the lounge. Max was so kind to offer to send me a tray to my room, which arrived within minutes of me settling in. The morning breakfast is another pleasant surprise of beautiful pastries, yogurts, fruit and more. The amenities were divine and the fireplace and balcony would have been perfect if I had been there more than 12 hours. I will return for sure.
