One of the best times to visit Sausalito is during the cozy holiday season. A magical destination in November and December, The Inn Above Tide is the perfect escape from the bustle of the holidays. Anchored by the Sausalito Lighted Boat Parade & Fireworks (on December 14) from which the waterfront guestrooms at The Inn Above Tide provide the best views, Sausalito is also the perfect venue from which to view the lighted San Francisco city skyline and the Bay Lights https://illuminate.org/projects/the-bay-lights installation on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge which is easier to see in winter courtesy of the earlier nightfall. Guests can utilize the in-room binoculars to access the best views, take advantage of the daily continental breakfast service and sunset wine and cheese reception and, exclusive to the “Light up the Bay” package, build their own holiday wonderland with a Gingerbread House Kit while sipping a hot cocoa. Another unique Sausalito holiday tradition is the annual Gingerbread House Contest (December 1-31). In addition to the hotel’s gingerbread creation on display in our lobby, guests can tour competing edible houses at local businesses throughout the town. Finally these months are a prime time for viewing the spectacular array of migrating birds on San Francisco Bay. Both seasoned birders and admirers of nature will delight in an illustrated checklist of local birds to inform their viewing and document their sightings.
The “Light Up the Bay” package is offered from November 1 – December 30, 2019 with rates starting at $460 plus tax for two people. This is a one-night package. A two night minimum stay is required on select weekends and holidays throughout the year. Package may be booked online or by telephone at 415.332.953 and is subject to availability.
