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 31-room hotel offers views of the San Francisco Bay, the city 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, iPod docking stations 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, an evening wine and cheese reception and loaner bicycles. You can also arrange for in-room spa services (for an additional fee). 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.

Appropriately named, this charming hotel is literally above the tides of the San Francisco Bay. Enjoy stunning views and walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants.

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.
