Overview

Incredible bay views from all rooms
This hotel lacks many on-site amenities, including a restaurant
Recent guests described The Inn Above Tide as "dreamy," "magical" and "romantic," and it's easy to see why. Situated on the waterfront in Sausalito, California, every accommodation in this 33-room hotel offers views of the San Francisco Bay, the San Francisco skyline, Alcatraz and Angel Island. But the unforgettable vantage point isn't all The Inn Above Tide offers guests: Accommodations are equipped with binoculars, upscale toiletries, LCD TVs with DVD players and, in select rooms and suites, fireplaces and private decks (a worthy splurge, according to past lodgers). No matter which room type you choose, you'll have access to the inn's wide range of amenities, including a daily continental breakfast and an evening wine and cheese reception. Though the inn doesn't have a fitness center, pool or restaurant on-site, its convenient waterfront location means Sausalito's eateries and shops are just steps away, a major plus for recent visitors. What's more, the ferry terminal is within walking distance of the property, making trips across the bay a cinch.

The selling points of this weathered bayside boutique extend to the nightly wine and cheese receptions—complimentary, of course—and the spacious rooms with wood-burning fireplaces, funky, retro-patterned fixtures, and glass-enclosed private decks where you can sit back and watch the boats go by.

Be sure to book a room with a private deck and a fireplace for breezy evenings, and take advantage of the complimentary binoculars: the floor-to-ceiling windows and balcony are prime for taking in the harbor’s kayakers, sea lions, and migratory birds.

Lovely touches—gardenias by the sink, large tubs, binoculars in every room, complimentary California wine, and imported cheese—abound, and most rooms have wood-burning or gas fireplaces. Though set in the middle of town, this place is luxurious and tranquil.
