The Best Hotels in Sausalito
Winter, 2013 -- What are the best hotels in Sausalito? Each quarter we survey a wide range of blogs, travel sites, online forums and ratings sites, then summarize and interpret the data to create this ranking of Sausalito hotels.
The four Downtown hotels are all within walking distance of the Sausalito Ferry Pier. To give you a wider price range we also include the closest two hotels in Mill Valley. We do NOT list the motels in Mill Valley near Highway 101, since the experiences visitors report from there are far less positive than the hotels listed below, and if you look around online you may get reservations at a far better place for just a little more money.
Don't be Confused: Computer-moderated sites list hotels in Tiburon as close to Sausalito. They are... but only if you're traveling by boat!
|1||1||Inn Above Tide||100||100||569||Downtown|
|4||4||Cavallo Point Lodge||89||88||1000||Fort Baker|
|5||5||Larkspur Hotel||84||82||633||Mill Valley|
Note: The Holiday Inn Express in Mill Valley is now the Larkspur Hotel.
Note: The Alta Mira Hotel, once the Grand Dame of Sausalito, is (sadly) no longer in operation, and the facility is now a rehab hospital. Many computer-moderated sites continue to list it as a hotel.
How to interpret our numbers:
Hotels are ranked by total Online Experience IndexTM. The top hotel for the quarter ALWAYS is given a score of 100, and all other hotels then receive a score "graded on the curve" of the top rated hotel.
We also list the "Heat" for each hotel, which signifies the amount of attention being paid to that business on the web. The highest Heat rating is automatically adjusted to 1000 and all other hotels are graded on that curve. The score is weighted to emphasize recent online activity. A hotel with a Heat Rating of 500 is generating twice as much online attention as one with a rating of 250.
