Having just opened in November 1996, after a complete renovation, the 14 rooms and 2 suites at the hotel are artfully decorated in a style reminiscent of the French Riviera. This European style boutique hotel is steeped in Sausalito history. Described as a bordello, and a place where gangster's and bootleggers called home. Built in a Mission Revival Style, and dating back to 1915, the hotel is located at a prime site in Sausalito facing the Historic Vina Del Mar Park. It is only steps from the San Francisco ferry harbor, and also is within walking distance to the many galleries and boutiques in Sausalito.

The Inn Above Tide is the only hotel in the bay area actually ON the water. All 29 rooms and suites feature panoramic San Francisco Bay and city skyline views and are directly over the water. Most all have furnished private decks over the water, fireplaces and oversized or spa tubs. All rooms include generous amenities, complimentary wi-fi, breakfast, evening wine and cheese and attentive service. Walk to restaurants and shops, bike along the waterfront or take the ferry to the city -just steps from the hotel. Wine country is just 30 minutes away.
Sally Stanford's Valhalla Inn
For almost 100 years the Valhalla was part of life in Sausalito. From the late 1800's until after World War II it was called the Walhalla Biergarten, but its greatest fame came when it was purchased 50 years ago by former Madame and Sausalito mayor-to-be Sally Stanford, who restored the Valhalla name. After her death it went through a number of different incarnations, but in the spring of 2009 a sign appeared on the shuttered door promising the return of Sally Stanford's Valhalla Inn. Unfortunately, by the summer of 2009 the signs were gone and with them our hopes. The building is now for sale. File this one under "Unfulfilled dreams."
The video below of Sally Stanford at Valhalla comes from the Sausalito Historical Society.

What a same this was such a beautiful place to dine and the food was excellent and the ambience superb I had the pleasure of dining there when SALLY was still alive although regretfully did not get to meet her. it is a shame family didn't take interest in keeping it open as a memory of SALLY. what a joy it would be to see it reopen as it was when SALLY was still alive I would come to Sausalito just to dine there
Like you, we miss that time and place. Back in the day Valhalla seemed immortal, something that had been around since time began... like Sally Stanford! For all her eccentricities, I think that in memory people now appreciate her far more than they did when she was alive.
