My husband surprised me with a stay here as a birthday getaway. We had a room which was bay front with our own deck and chairs. Breakfast choices are made the evening before, and breakfast is delivered to you in your room at the time you indicate. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was quiet. We did not... More

50 yards to ferry going to Fishermans Wharf. Awesome view of San Francisco skyline. Breakfast brought every morning to room. Fireplace, evening wine and cheese. Walking distance to wonderful restaurants and great value. Only 23 rooms, wonderful staff and on our list to visit again.

What a find could not do better in the Bay Area. Receptionist (Season) was extremely helpful and friendly. Situated on the water as per the name views across the Bay taking in ALcatraz etc were memorable.

Great room! Even on the first floor, it was private and roomy. Fabulous deck for guests to enjoy breathtaking views of the bay. Not an overlooked detail.... Tea service, fire places, large tubs and generous cable package. Romantic with superb service. Looking forward to our return.

Across the Golden Gate bridge and on to Tiburon is the best little gem in hotel stays. The Water's Edge hotel is tucked in amongst restaurants and retail and could easily be missed. Public parking for the hotel is across the street behind retail shops but hotel staff are quick to offer their services to bring your luggage up to... More

This is a great little hotel; so many touches like free wi-fi, extra nice wine and cheese reception in the lobby, a beautiful deck on the water for all guests to use, free bikes to use, and a free pass to a gym. Wonderful staff! Stayed in a Grand King, which was spectacular. Full-on view of San Francisco across the... More

A darling smaller private hotel right on the water in Tiburon. The back deck looks out over the bay and marina, and the sunsets are wonderful out there. Be aware that the views from the rooms are on the side of the building with the exception of a few that face the back of the property, but don't be dissappointed... More

First and foremost, wow. The view of the city from the back porch is absolutely stunning. It was little foggy during the daytime, but by early evening, the clouds had lifted and we were treated to an incredible view of the San Francisco skyline. Some of the other perks: - actual fireplace in the room #ambience - comfortable beds (and... More

This is the hotel we like to book for adult friends with no children. The rooms are nice and comfy . The outside patio is on of the best spots to start or end you day in Tiburon. The staff is always ready to help and as others have said the free breakfast is great. You are just steps away... More

The name is bang on, it is right by the water. Well appointed rooms and a friendly staff made it a good stay. The town is charming as well. It's pricey though, so another option is to stay at the other hotel in town and walk (especially if you're not paying for the costlier water's edge rooms) the town is... More
