Sausalito, Marin County, California
A quiet alternative to San Francisco's busy downtown hotels, the luxurious Inn Above Tide is within walking distance of the shops, restaurants, and ferry of quaint, ritzy Sausalito. The 31 sophisticated rooms here have sweeping bay views and most come with patios overlooking the water. While there's a spa, free breakfast, and free wine and cheese receptions, the hotel's lack of a pool and on-site restaurant may deter some visitors.
