We were in room 106 which was a nice room with a fantastic view. The room was very clean and nicely appointed and had a deck facing Angel Island. We could see all of the way around to the Presidio from there. We were on the first floor away from the ferry boat dock. Parking is $18 per day for...

We stayed only one night and wished we'd booked a bit longer. We would love to return. The room was spotless and very comfortable with a fabulous view of the San Fransisco bay from our balcony. We were on the lower level and loved it! It was also quiet. It was great that complimentary coffee and fruit was available in...

The view from our balcony was simply amazing. We enjoyed sitting out and watching the sea lions. For a small fee you can have breakfast delivered to your room. The wine and cheese at happy hour was excellent.

On a recent biz trip to San Francisco I chose to stay in Sausalito as it was actually closest to the client. I was so pleasantly surprised with my stay. Amazing location for all of what the town of Sausalito has to offer. As important, the facilities and views were spectacular, and the service top notch. I even arranged for...

WOW, this is still the nicest hotel ever! We returned after a fantastic stay three years ago and the Inn Above Tide is every bit as wonderful for a weekend get-away. Rainy and windy only added to the peaceful ambiance of the room. We reserved too late to get a deck but we did get a huge picture window overlooking...

Spent a wonderful weekend with my daughters and 4 year old and 3 month old granddaughters!! The great breakfast and evening wine and appetizers that we could take to our room were awesome and convenient having babies with us. The view spectacular and location was perfect to walk around and enjoy the shops and restaurants and views. Did not use...

We stayed in a King Deluxe room at the end of January and could not have been more pleased. Certainly at that time of year you don't need to pay for a room with a balcony - too chilly! While we had just a "room" not a suite, we found it wonderfully spacious. There are two comfy armchairs you can...

Three words to describe our visit: wow, wow, wow! This was our first visit to The Inn Above Tide in several years and it was as good, if not better, than any previous stay. We stayed in the Panorama Suite and my wife loved soaking in the free-standing spa tub while enjoying the sparkling lights of the Bay. General Manager...

Spectacular views, clean modern rooms, great location. Evening appetizers/wine and continental breakfast are great! We stayed in both a standard King and also one of the large suites (wood burning fireplace-stocked and whirlpool bath and huge shower.) The views of San Francisco at the bay are awesome. Next to the ferry to SF is nice. Great place for a honeymoon...

Having visited San Francisco many times and always staying in the city we decided to try staying in Sausalito for a change. Loved our stay at The Inn Above Tide. Our first room #101 was a little too small and was lacking enough hanging space or drawers to make our three day stay comfortable.. The room was on the first...

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
