Ok, so you have decided that Sausalito is the place for you this year, for you & your families’ vacation (maybe my blog helped you settle on this decision!).
You will no doubt be interested in the best places to stay while you are visiting this hidden gem of a city. Luckily, I’m here to help you out. I have visited Sausalito countless times down through the years, so my wealth of experience should prove useful to guide you in this search.
Sausalito, being a small city of just over 7000, has 4 hotels to choose from, all highly and thoroughly reviewed on Trip Advisor and similar websites. Let’s begin!
The Inn above Tide:
This hotel looks like it belongs in a movie, but mere pictures cannot do it justice. Rated the top hotel in Sausalito, it is by no means a cheap spot.
However, the costs are well justified. With stunning views across the San Francisco bay, this luxury hotel can cater to your every need. And with shops, art galleries and restaurants all within a short walk from the hotel, you will be very centrally located.
If you wish to visit vineyards such as Napa, a short drive north will bring you there. Definitely one to put on the bucket list.
If you are after something a little less expensive (or a lot, depending on your budget!), Hotel Sausalito has everything you want. Ideally located, with wonderful views, Hotel Sausalito prides itself on having extremely clean rooms, perfect for the weary traveller.
And with it being just steps away from the Ferry terminal, you can easily head off on adventures for a nice day out, being dropped back to your door once the day has ended.
The Gables Inn:
Perhaps your stay in Sausalito is short term, or maybe you prefer to stay in “B&B” style accommodation in order to save some dollars. If so, you can’t go far wrong by booking in to the Gables Inn.
Right in the centre of downtown Sausalito, you can look forward to continental breakfast every morning, amazing views from your own private balcony that overlooks San Francisco bay, and wine & cheese receptions each evening. As it is perfectly located, you will have direct access to shops, restaurants and much more.
Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa:
If you like nothing better than whiling the hours and stresses of life away in the spa, then this hotel has got what you need! Offering unrivalled views, right from your room, the Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa is truly unique.
Renovated in 2014 (costing millions of dollars), the accommodation offered is spread across guest rooms, cottages and even an 11 room mansion! The Alexandrite Suite as it is called is spread across 5000 square foot.
As you can see, there is no shortage of quality places to stay in Sausalito, regardless of your taste or budget level. Most will have astounding views, and will make you fall in love with this city.
