This was our third stay, the highlight is the view back to San Francisco, especially at nightfall when you can sit on your deck and watch the lights come on. But the inn is very good even without the view, attentive service, great breakfast and "happy hour" food and wine. The rooms are not overly large but because of the... More

My wife and if stayed here just one night as part of an 11 night road trip down the Oregon and Northern California coast. The Inn is very nice with excellent views of San Francisco and the bay. While the inn was fairly expensive it was well worth every penny. Our room was modern and elegant with a fireplace and... More

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.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
