From your bed you can look out the expansive windows and see San Francisco at night you see the Garideli sign all lit up then the fishing boats came by it was quite the place. There are only a few shops in Sausalito so this hotel is the only reason to go yo this town.

Right on San Francisco Bay, a short walk to boats to the Ferry Bldg and Fisherman's Wharf, cheap parking, an excellent breakfast and free internet service. Not much more to ask for. An excellent alternative to a San Francisco hotel unless you're part of a conference.

A must and highly recommended, All comfortable rooms with a stunning view; exceptional service from Joe and Daniel at reception; the most delicious breakfast - fresh granola, berries and freshly squeezed orange juice; wine and cheese in the evening. My husband wanted to stay on forever!

We stayed on the 1st floor in the Tidal Suite. It felt like a houseboat (without the motion), as we were right off the water. The room was fabulous, the service was great and we location, location, location. Restaurants, bars, shopping and the ferry were all just steps away from our front door. The room was spacious. Large windows and...

Truly one of the most romantic oceanside hotels in the San Francisco Bay area. The rooms are very well appointed and each room is ocean front with a view of the city as well as Alcatraz and the Bay Bridge in the distance. Most rooms have a fireplace and a balcony which works great for the cool evenings looking over...

The hotel is truly perched 'above the tide' - cannot get any closer to the water. The location is great. Stayed in a queen room with a balcony and fireplace. Would definitely recommend a room with a balcony as the view is one of the highlights and the hotel does not have any public seating areas overlooking the bay. The...

My husband and I stayed here while attending a nearby conference. We were very pleased to return each evening to an elegant, spacious suite with an amazing view. Each night complimentary and quite good wine, cheese, and fruit are served in the downstairs lounge. Our schedule left us unable to partake, but each night the hotel very kindly prepared an...

We stayed here recently celebrating our anniversary and it was a most enjoyable visit. The room was very nice but certainly not luxurious. The high end prices are clearly for location and view - and both are excellent. The balcony is wonderful - and we enjoyed it by drinking champagne - a gift from the hotel - before noon (they...

Can't say enough good things about this hotel. I love San Francisco, but unless I have to stay in the city for business reasons, will never stay at any other hotel when in the Bay-area PERIOD. This is a beautiful, boutique hotel that sits on the edge, and in some cases juts out over the water, of the San Francisco...
