Stayed at this charming hotel on February 14. I had a "partial water view" room which gave me a fantastic view of Angel Island and the small Tiburon harbor. The room had a very small deck with one chair but that worked out fine.

The room was a nice size with a nicely made king size bed with a comfortable mattress "topper". The room had a very welcome fireplace (with a log supplied), and great local "EO" brand bath products in full-size pump containers in the shower. The complimentary breakfast is perfect considering the multitude of choices of the menu (including lox, bagel and cream cheese!) as well as the timing choices. Nice touch!

Being a former resident of Tiburon, it was great staying in the center of the hustle and bustle of the town.

Justin is a caring manager and very helpful. This hotel is a keeper in my repertoire of local hotels and will most certainly return.

Room Tip: I would prefer to stay on the second floor again. I would imagine that the more expensive "wate...

What a beautiful place! And really excellent service! Every staff member I came in contact with was professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. I stayed in a beautiful room with an even more beautiful view of San Francisco: city lights in the evening and clear skies over the Bay in the morning. Loved having breakfast served to my room as well - very nice touch.

I would definitely stay here again, and have been telling friends about it!

My husband and I stayed at the Waters Edge this past week. Everything from the moment we checked in was perfect. The hotels location couldnt be better and what amazing views it offers. We enjoyed many nights sitting around the fireplace enjoying a glass of wine (They also have a complimentary managers happy hour from 5-6:30 which included white and red wine as well as a large assortment of cheeses and snacks- definitely worth taking advantage of!). Our room was well kept, updated and had all the comforts one expects in a upscale boutique hotel. The in-room fireplace was a nice touch and added to the ambiance. The hotel offers a complimentary breakfast everyday delivered right to your room. The selection was full of options from granola, steel oats, yogurts, salmon and capers, eggs, huge assortment of breads, juices, coffee and teas. Nothing beats breakfast and a paper at your door every morning and enjoying breakfast on a beautiful day on your private patio! Not only was the property itself wonderful but the service was superb. From the moment we checked in, every member of the staff was friendly, helpful and surpassed all our expectations. I was so impressed with the property I had to let the manager Justin know how much we enjoyed our stay. He is customer centric and its not hard to see how he runs such a beautiful property. The customer truly comes first at this hotel- nice refreshing change! Definitely would recommend this property! Thank you for a great stay Waters Edge! - Jennifer Raja

After a lovely evening sitting around the firepit overlooking the bay with the lights from San Francisco sparkling across the water, I and my new friends agreed we each needed to pinch overselves. Not only about our accidental ways of finding this lovely little hotel, but because the service was fabulous. Michael provided our spontaneous little group with more wine and cheese and even some gourmet chocolate. We all agreed; this combination of view, service, setting and down right comfort doesn't come along often. I selfishly wish for others to stay away so I can reclaim this experience next time. Fabulous.

Room Tip: Try for a second floor room if you'd like a view.

Charming view of the Corinthian Yacht Club and the SF Bay with the city in the distance. From your couch or chair on the raised deck sitting at the fire pit you can view Alcatraz and Angel Island. The rooms include breakfast served in the AM. Salmon, cereal, yogurt and a hot beverage. This is a very nice touch. Wine and cheese reception make you feel pampered. Staff is well trained to host diverse guests from around the world. Several dining options just outside the front door of the property.

Room Tip: Bring a cooler and ice.

I just took mother-daughter trip and we had planned on staying in Napa, but decided to drive back to San Francisco. On way back, drove through Tiburon and saw the Waters Edge Hotel. They had availability and so we stayed. Rode their bikes around the peninsula, shopped the boutiques and enjoyed several of the restaurants in the neighborhood. The hotel staff were wonderful with every request. The firepit on the back patio with a view of San Francisco Bay was amazing. Can't say enough about how wonderful the hotel and staff were - felt we had discovered a cool secret cause everyone kept talking about Sausalito. This was way better.

This place is amazing! Just stayed here for our anniversary weekend and it was all kinds of wonderful. Michael at the Front Desk was awesome and always asked if we needed anything. Super attentive. The hotel itself is in a perfect spot, right on Main st. We didn't need our car the entire weekend! The happy hour with Wine and Cheese was great, we took ours to the balcony and enjoyed the nice sunset. The breakfast served in the room was amazing, a perfect way to start the morning. The room itself was great, very comfortable beds and the fireplace and balcony made it even better. We used their complimentary bikes and rode to Blackie's pasture on a beautiful day.

I would definitely recommend this hotel hands down. From the staff, the rooms and location you cannot go wrong. Cannot wait to come back!

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor and had a balcony with a great view of the water.
