Waters Edge Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
The Waters Edge is inspired by Eastern seaboard architecture and the exotic merchant trade of the San Francisco Bay. Located on the water in charming downtown Tiburon, the Waters Edge brings an added ambiance of global sophistication to this unique part of Northern California. Restful rooms feature crisp white feather beds, and comfy chaises with hand-knitted throws perfect for afternoon naps. Many rooms look out to stunning views of San Francisco and Angel Island.

We loved the location, the amenities, the room, the view, the kind staff, the breakfast, the bikes, the front porch, the fact that we could walk to anywhere we wanted to go. Parking was convenient. We will return.

It is a calm and quiet Environmental hotel even though very closer to city limits.Have some outstanding restaurants inside .Japanese restaurant is awesome.

What does the hotel serve to the rooms for breakfast? What parking is available?
As others have stated, you will receive a breakfast menu the evening before so you can indicate your choices--what could be better! Eating out on the deck is a lovely option.

We would like to book 4 nights for October, 2017. When would we be able to call and reserve those nights? We are trying to plan our trip for a specific event in the area. Thank you.
I think you can call anytime. Give them a call, they are very accommodating.

What about parking? We will have a 12 foot trailer behind us and need a place to park close by.
There is a large public parking lot across the street from the hotel, I think it came with the room....don't remember.

"2nd floor rooms are best"
"Rooms on the second floor and near the water's edge are quieter and have a nicer view."
"Choose a room with a bay view if you can!"
"The even numbered rooms have lovely views over the harbor and Corinthian yacht club."
"Best views are to be found at the rooms located at the ends of the hallways."
US$255 - US$389 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
