Two things that prevents me from giving this an "excellent". One is the noise. It is located on the highway and you can hear freeway noise even in the room. But the noise is only mildly distracting and was not an issue for us. Second is the bathroom. It appeared to be a very old bathroom, possibly from the original property, that was given a facelift. It was clean and spacious, new tile and appealing decor but no counter space. Only a tiny, old fashioned pedestal sink. They did provide a storage "tower" so at least you had room for your stuff. Those two things aside, this is a great property for a great price. So lets move on to the positive. Even though it was on the freeway, for our purposes the location was great. Sausalito is a quick 5 minute drive, the city a quick 15 minute drive and Mill Valley is charming in and of itself. Rooms are spacious, contemporary and well appointed. We had a lovely view of the back patio and "bay" (a body of water on back of hotel). The breakfasts are incredible! Huge spread with many choices. It was included in price of the room. The public areas are very well decorated and upscale, clean and inviting. We also had a wine and cheese happy hour included. Staff is incredibly accommodating. Now here's the best part, and my travel partner did a lot of comparing- the price is a great value, especially for Marin. We were there in the winter so couldn't really utilize the outdoor areas for eating or happy hour, but they look very nice. I will return to Acqua.
