Like all the other reviews say, the views were spectacular. We had a nice, cosy & spacious, quiet room. The wine & cheese was a nice touch. We also had complimentary coffee (nice coffee) and fruit outside our room in the hall way which was good, so you could help yourself. You get served cpmplimentary breakfast in bed if you... More

Stayed there on our way to Napa and this hotel was fantastic. The rooms are beautiful with a fireplace. The hotel appears to be recently renovated and very nice. They offer a complimentary happy hour wine and cheese that you can enjoy on their balcony overlooking the bay. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed for a week to see the Bay area. This vacation turned out to be one of the great ones for us in large part because of the Waters Edge. It's a very nice hotel in a great location with fabulous views of the Bay and the city. However, the icing on the cake was the outstanding attitude of the... More

We stayed in this lovely hotel for four nights recently with our two year old daughter. We had a really nice partial view of the bay and Angel Island with a sweet little balcony. The hotel looks exactly like the pictures. I note some of the older reviews say that the hotel needed some sprucing. My best guess is that... More

I have stayed here a few times on vacation. I've taken workmates here for fun whilst travelling from Europe. Tiburon is chic but relaxed and the hotel fits in well. The rooms are tasteful and well furnished. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The wine and cheese available each evening have to be taken on the rear deck overlooking... More

We rolled in super late on Friday morning (2:30am after a long, late flight) for a Bay to Breakers visit and the staff couldn't have been nicer. The breakfast provided (brought to your room) is great, and the feel of the facility is also really good. The evening view on the deck at the wine reception was also memorable-- we... More

This hotel is so cute. A little outside the city, it is a good distance to relax while in the SF area. The town reminds me of Europe, small, with little places to grab coffee or eat at cafe. The rooms were clean and have a small balcony. The back deck balcony is gorgeous with a great view of the... More

Right on Main Street and the water, the view from the shared deck is spectacular. Located right along the walking path through Tiburon and the harbor, next to the Angel Island and San Francisco ferries. Watched the cormorants dive for fish. Lovely to sit on the deck with wine during the nightly wine and cheese hour, or for breakfast, which... More

The view from the communal terrace is wonderful and the rooms fantastic. Ours had fireplaces in them, which added to the romantic atmosphere. Lots of good restaurants and pretty shops nearby. Nice breakfast delivered to your room and the ferry to San Francisco literally around the corner. Really, really nice place!

We had plans for Valentine's Day that were changed by a monsoon blowing in. So, at the last minute, I needed something else. I called the Waters Edge and the front desk host was very understanding of my predicament and quickly found us a room for the whole day. Once we got there, I was pleasantly surprised when the front... More
