My husband and I stayed here after getting the hotel for a great price off a hotels.com. We were extremely pleasantly surprised to find such a wonderful boutique hotel! The staff is attentive and there are nice "extras" such as the wine and cheese every day at 5pm. Our room was very nice albeit not extravagant. We had a beautiful... More

My husband and I were in need of a very relaxing weekend and were also attending a wedding in Tiburon. We came to the Bay Area often but tend to stay in San Francisco. This time we opted for Marin county and chose The Water's Edge after reading reviews of several hotels. The hotel is really well located in the... More

We purchased our stay here through a Hotwire deal for $140/night. The room was HUGE and beautiful and the deck is indeed fantastic, with views out onto San Francisco. Super comfy bed and Tiburon itself is a lovely town. The only hesitation I have in recommending this hotel is that our room was very noisy. Starting at around 7:30 in... More

We found the best kept secret. Right on the bay directly across from San Fran, this great little spot is on the quiet Tiburon Main Street , easily accessible to a couple great restaurants and shops. Well worth a few extra minute drive from the hullabaloo of San Fran metro. Great wine and cheese happy hour!! Comfy room.

There's no restaurant or room service here, nor a fridge in the room: but what there is is an amazing roof deck with views of the pacific, charming eager to please staff - who got us all the complimentary wine we could drink on said roof deck - and lovely touches like the wine and cheese happy hour and complimentary...

This was our 3rd time staying at the Water’s Edge Hotel in Tiburon and, WOW!! If you like being right on the water than stay in room #221. This is the last room before you step onto the Hotel Back Deck where cozy couches, chairs, tables, umbrellas, fire-pit, seagulls, sailboats and VIEWS await you! In the distance you can see... More

Perfect location... surrounded by great shops, restaurants and next to the SF Bay ferries. Spacious room on the water!!! Can't beat that! Staff was very helpful, could use better check-in parking area and the parking lot could be closer.. Right next to Sam's Anchor Cafe (great seafood ciopinno) But overall, what a impressive get-away, and you can't beat Tiburon...

My boyfriend and I just spent the first few nights of our trip to SanFran/Napa at Water's Edge. The location was perfect, right on the water in the cute downtown Tiburon. The back patio faced the water and had tons of chairs for lounging, a perfect spot to sip your wine during their wine/cheese hour. Overall, high quality EVERYTHING. Even... More

Amenities, service, cleanliness, location, price/performance, room size...all great. The terrace view is unbeatable during sunset, sunrise or anytime in between! Highly recommend staying there for a quick get-away.
