This is a really special Hotel. Would definitely return with family and was a shame they were not with me to enjoy it on this trip. I absolutely loved it's position over the San Francisco bay, literally over it. View from balcony = the bay bridge, San Francisco skyline and view over to Berkeley. Beautiful sunrise. Seals popping their heads...

Loved my stay here. I'm a frequent traveler, and not many places "wow" me anymore. But this property definitely did. Very charming with amazing views from our bed no less. The balcony is over the water and was very private. We could see the view from our bed. Very well appointed with excellent service. I stayed her once before back...

We stayed here for one night on our way to Napa. Our room had a big balcony right over the water with a wood burning fireplace. You had clear views across the bay to San Francisco. The wine reception and continental breakfast was a nice touch.

We visited for one night after a weekend in Napa. It couldn't have been more perfect! Champagne at check in and wonderful staff to help with dinner reservations. We enjoyed the wine and cheese reception before walking to dinner. The location is perfect, right by the ferry dock and within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. We were in...

Our second stay and loved every minute of it. Plan some time to stay at the hotel, relax on your balcony and enjoy the view. Enjoy breakfast and the evening wine reception with great local wines. Check out the panorama suite. Very lovely and worth the $$.

This is probably the best place we have ever stayed. We were so impressed with the entire experience from the moment we drove up to the hotel. The valet parking was inexpensive and they were so prompt when we needed our car! We had 2 rooms next to each other and we were celebrating my sister's birthday. The gave both...

This hotel is in a prime position in Sausalito with amazing views over the Bay to San Francisco. We upgraded our room to one with a balcony overlooking the water and we would recommend doing this. The hotel does not have a restaurant but offers breakfast and evening wine and cheese in the "drawing room". Staff are incredibly friendly and...

I have actually accidentally stumbled at this Inn, while walking around visiting Sausalito during a San Francisco Trip. I entered and asked to know the Inn and immediatelly abandoned my hotel in SF to stay here, accross the Bay. It has a wonderfull view, it´s peacefull, quiet and you get to chose your breakfast (and have it) without leaving the...

My wife and I have just returned to the Inn Above Tide after a two year gap and were delighted to find nothing has changed! There was still the friendly and attentive staff, ready to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The queen-bed room is lovely and cosy, with stunning views of the bay, and comes with a fireplace...

We stayed at the hotel in the Vista Suite Oct 21st - 24th 2016 and we had an amazing room. The staff deserve every compliment made in these reviews, they are extraordinarily accommodating and friendly. Late the evening of our first night, the spa was not turning on as it should, we were reluctant to call the front desk, but...
