Visit Marin County/Sausalito
Romance for Two
30 El Portal
Sausalito is a delightful respite from the noise and bustle of the city. Nestled among hills and trees, this truly is a
town where life happens at a slower pace. At the Inn Above Tide, slip into your robe and nestle into one of the chairs on
your patio. Breathe deeply, because unlike the city across the Bay, the air in Sausalito is pure and fresh. If your toes get
chilly, slide on your complimentary slippers, which you get to take with you as a reminder of your ultimate relaxation at Inn Above
Tide. The acrylic balcony provides an unobstructed view of the bay. Be prepared - you will not be anonymous at this hotel.
The friendly staff will go out of its way to assist you in making your stay a memorable event.
In the environmentally-friendly town of Sausalito, there will be no need to use your car. Stroll hand-in-hand along
the quiet sidewalks, ducking into local boutiques. For dinner, try ordering the garlic pizza from Giovanni's Pizza -
the undesirable breath is completely worth it! Sit at the table by the window and overlook the Bay. On your way back to the
hotel, stop at Lappert's Ice Cream & Yogurt and enjoy a delectable dessert.
Start a fire, relax in your outrageously comfortable bed - from a local store in San Francisco - and gaze out at the
peaceful waves of the sea. For a refreshing night's sleep, leave your sliding door open and let the fresh air envelope you.
With your window open, you'll be sure to wake up to a dramatic sunrise that you will not want to miss. Since you're starting
the day so early, take a brisk morning walk through Sausalito. There are several coffee shops that offer a little perk to
start your day right. Enjoy a shower or a bath in the Jacuzzi tub, using Bvalgari products. Don't miss the extravagant
complimentary breakfast, with fresh berries and melon, bagels, muffins and fresh-squeezed orange juice. The Inn Above Tide
is a gorgeous property that is flourishing with romance.
