Where to Stay in the North Bay

Local Getaways is taking a liberal approach to our definition of North Bay. We are starting with the north tower of the Golden Gate Bridge and sticking to the coast all the way up to Mendocino. When you travel north from San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge, you’ll begin the Redwood Highway in Marin County, home to about 250,000 folks. If it’s rugged coastlines, sprawling open spaces and culinary delights like oysters, artisan cheese and bread you’re after — the North Bay is the best.

Foodies can enjoy our well-researched lists of where to eat, including where to get the best breakfast, lunch and dinner. Looking for the best activities? Take advantage of our hiking guide and round up of the best places to visit to make the most of the area’s natural beauty. Of course, you’ll need a place to stay. We’ve also sifted through the many options to find the North Bay’s best lodgings, including top choices for a group getaway, wellness stay, as well as the best luxury and good-value hotels and condos.
