I first learned about this hotel from a SniqueAway email. I am writing a screenplay about a hotel on water and when I saw the Waters Edge, I thought, "This is my hotel." But it was out of my limited price range, and I didn't bite. Then I had a really stressful two weeks, and I decided that on my next trip to the Bay Area, I would stay there. I booked a room for one night and looked forward to the trip all week long. It sustained me -- which is not a good thing for a new place. When you build things up so much in your mind, it is easy for them to disappoint.
My son and I got to the hotel at 3:30 on Saturday and were greeted by a nice, really accommodating young man. We went up to the room and were impressed by the bowl of apples and ice water at the top of the stairs. The room was small but perfectly laid out, and the bed was heaven. The balcony was little and looked out on the ferry dock, but it allowed a view of the City, and I didn't even know there was a balcony, so I was happy.
The deck on the second floor commands a great view of the city, the marina, and the hillside multimillion-dollar homes. There are fire pits with glass that are even pretty unlit during the day.
I did not remotely experience the noise that another reviewer mentioned. We were on the ferry side, and I can see how the Sam's side might get noisy, but it's like people who buy a house by a high school. What did you think was going to happen?
So, I am definitely going back, I am completely pleased with the experience, and if I actually finish this script, it is because I was so inspired by Waters Edge Hotel.
