Colorful History of the Hotel Sausalito
The Mission Revival style architecture of the Hotel Sausalito gives away that it was not originally a product of this era, and indeed it has been a Sausalito landmark since 1915. During the early 1900’s when San Francisco was referred to often as the Barbary Coast, Sausalito had its own groups clamoring for ways around Prohibition. Located near the docks where the bootleggers would unload their wares, the Hotel Sausalito (then rumored to be a bordello) saw its fair share of mischief and had celebrity customers like the gangster Baby Face Nelson. Throughout the years, and the many distinct eras of the San Francisco bay Area, the Hotel Sausalito has undergone many changes in clientele and style but has remained a prime luxury destination since its extensive remodel in the late 1990’s.
Luxury in Downtown Sausalito
Made to resemble more an elegant European estate or a comfortable bed and breakfast than a modern luxury hotel, the small Hotel Sausalito has a tendency to charm and engage their guests in a way that simply isn’t possible in a larger hotel. With quaintly decorated rooms, complimentary wireless connection, and one of the area’s most attentive concierge services, the Hotel Sausalito does an excellent job wooing its guests back again and again. With reasonable rates for such an above and beyond hotel experience, the Hotel Sausalito remains a well kept secret and one that those in the know are not likely to divulge too quickly.
