I waited at the desk for some time without acknowledgement while the tall white man at the desk talked with a tall white male customer in a blazer. They went on and on about personal stuff and wouldn't even glance in my direction. I was there to book a room but had to actually call the front desk to even...

This hotel is incredible! We LOVED our King Deluxe Room. We felt right on top of the water! Breakfast is fantastic, so much choice, so delicious! we loved the wine & cheese at 5-7pm each night great location in Sausalito, it was perfect for trips into Muir Woods and Sonoma. Would highly recommend this place, it is perfect!

This hotel is perfectly located - literally on top of the waters of SF bay. The queen rooms are a little small but this is easily compensated for by the clever layout, so they don't feel cramped. Our room opened onto a fabulous glass balcony with glorious views. We had a log fire, super large bathroom, a very comfy bed...

We have stayed here on three occasions and are always amazed. The view, the staff, and the location are to die for. The beds are soft and the rooms are comfortable. The view is really incredible though. Walking out onto your private viewing deck and seeing a panorama of the bay is very special.

We spent 3 nights at this Beautiful hotel and it was absolutely beautiful and the service was impeccable. The beds are like sleeping on a cloud and the pillows are magnificent. We woke up to a beautiful view every morning and enjoyed incredible sunsets every evening. We can't wait to return and hope to make it an annual event.

My wife and I decided to get away for a couple days and discovered the Inn Above Tide. It's a magical little place with rooms and a deck that floats above the tide that made us feel like we were in a different world. Impeccable service. Beautiful buffet breakfast. And the views--breathtaking. Couldn't have been happier.

38th anniversary, quick night away. We went to Inn Above the tide. It was just wonderful. The morning view needs no explanation because it was the quintessential View of SF.

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending a night at the Skyline suite. The Inn is magnificent in every way and scores high by any fundamental measure of quality. But what sets it can't be measured - when you walk through the Inn's doors you leave the busy bay area and find yourself surrounded by light, water, and...

What can we say - this boutique style hotel/inn is magnificent. We spent two nights here during the first weekend of March. We were debating a San Francisco or Sausalito or base and feel we made the right decision. Arriving on a Saturday afternoon Sausalito was bustling with happy day trippers and locals frequenting the shops, bars and restaurants -...

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...

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
