Love this quaint hotel in central Tiburon right on the waterfront overlooking San Francisco. The rooms are large and luxurious with great bathrooms and an open fireplace (complete with ready to go logs). This trip was for business, but would be such a romantic stay. There's a great terrace overlooking the bay and I fell in love with the town....

I recommend the million dollar water views of San Francisco. With friendly and helpful staff you are greeted with wine and cheese at lobby after check in. and fresh baked cookies in...

The street view of the hotel is very cute - it's nestled on a narrow, boutique lined lane. Parking isn't free - although we were able to park free on the street during our one night visit. The first room we were given, 204, was quite a disappointment, however. It was small, but the worst part was that it overlooked...

A lovely boutique hotel. Serves you breakfast in your room, cheese and wine in late afternoon. Great location depending on where your room is situated. Stay upstairs only, though these rooms have not been upgraded. There is a porch which overlooks sf bay on second floor. Gorgeous. Downstairs off the lobby are two rooms, very well appointed Mine was huge...

Only had a night there, but every thing was great. The people, the room, the views, the shorts walks around town, and the views nearby of the Goldengate bridge. Pricing was good and the complimentary drinks overlooking the bay were very special. The great restaurant (Luna Blu) they suggested was excellent.As good as a hotel gets.

Hotel is ideally located. The balcony on the second floor overlooking the bay is wonderful. The hotel is quiet and is nicely kept. The downside is the parking. It is more than a block away and can be as much as two blocks away when the lot is full.

So friendly! Wine and cheese, chocolate chip cookies each evening. Continental breakfast brought to your room each morning. Very nice! Only downsize is the thin walls and floors. Can hear water running and footsteps. Will stay again, very relaxing.

Pleasant stay, no complaints. They have free tea and fruit in the afternoon, free continental breakfast in the morning. We're gluten free, so they ordered bagels for us. Good coffee, a few other amenities we didn't enjoy. We stayed for two nights. Very quiet, large room with small balcony. Tiburon is lovely, cute restaurants, nice area. We drove up to...

Waters Edge Hotel in Tiburon, California is our favorite getaway! We have been staying at this property every year since 2004, and when we retired at the end of 2015 we decided to start staying at least 3 times each year going forward. Our most recent stay was April, 2017, and we've already booked an additional two stays for later...

I am so pleased and feel so rested after staying just one night at Waters Edge in Tiburon. The staff was so kind and attentive. We sat out on the deck and took in the incredible view of San Francisco Bay while enjoying wine, cheese and crackers so nicely set out in the lobby. Everything felt easy about the stay....

“The higher numbered rooms are closer to the water for better views. Avoid room 204.”

“Our room was on the front. Very quiet at night. Heard trash trucks in morning, though, so a harbor view might be quieter.”
zebramom, 19 Apr 2017 | Read review
“Rooms near the back deck may be noisier. We were there on a very quiet (rainy) weekend and so this is pure speculation.”
