Inn Above Tide
The modern property is built on pilings over San Francisco Bay. From ferries and kayakers to sea lions and migratory birds, guests here have a prime spot for taking in the harbor’s goings-on. Most of the 29 rooms feature fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling windows. For the best view of the San Francisco skyline, book room No. 107—its private deck is ideal for watching the sunrise.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
