I've hesitated writing this review because I really want to be able to get a room here in the future. That said, basic rooms are small, balconies close together. This is the place you want to spend the extra money on. Get the bigger room, get the private balcony with hedges on both sides. If you won't be in your room much and a room doesn't matter much to you then by all means, go with the smaller room or just stay in the city. But...this a hotel you want to plan on enjoying. We spent the majority of our day lounging on the balcony, watching the ferry come and drinking rose. Skip the expensive dinner if you've blown your budget on the room and hit the deli across the street for a moveable feast and a million dollar view of the city. Service is across the board excellent.
If you must go out, ask the front desk where the very casual fish place is on the water about a mile away (331 fish) the best fish and chips we've had EVER plus great grilled fish/chowder salads. Outside picnic tables, order at the register kind of place. Good beer/wine selection. Walkable if athletic. Stop at the market by the fish place and get staples (impressive wine section) call a taxi for the ride back ($5 bucks). Think hedonistic...and enjoy. Lucky Europeans, enjoy that euro while it lasts!
- 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
