We live in Southern Marin, drive by the Aqua Hotel all the time and wondered about the ambience since it sits right next to Highway 101. Well, we got a chance to give the hotel a try last week as "power outage refugees". The staff were professional and welcoming. We arrived at 7PM and were greeted with wine and cheese...

Good size rooms which either open up onto a balcony or, if you choose a ground floor room, the gardens which lead down to the water. Free cheese and wine has a good selection of wines and the staff are great!

We took a quick getaway weekend when my kid was out of school and her grandmother could watch her. We hadn't stayed in Marin county much, and the Acqua looked like a good choice. It is by no means cheap. It's right next to US 101, and not in the quaint part of Mill Valley. Some pro's:. Pretty views over...

I stayed two nights for business. It's perfectly pleasant, but there was construction going on which affected the entrance and things just seemed a little... off. Rooms were clean and staff was really attentive so I will give them credit for trying to make my stay as pleasant as possible. Also, the wine hour is a nice touch. Location is...

Stayed for two nights before heading to Monterey for Thanksgiving. What a special experience! Just a few minutes from Muir Woods, easy access to San Francisco (after rush hour!), nice restaurants nearby. The hotel is beautiful, tranquil, situated on the water with lovely views. Room was spacious, well-appointed, and serene. Staff was attentive. Breakfast was excellent (hot and cold buffet,...

The GPS could not find this place at the first try. Once we arrived I was a bit alarmed at how close this hotel was to the highway. That went right out of my head when we walked in and the fragrance and lobby were soothing! All rooms looked over the water. Rooms extremely clean and spacious. A wonderful spa...

I was so pleased with this hotel. When I first booked the room I had sticker shock, coming from a less $$$ area. When I found that my room was about the same rate as a chain nearby, I relaxed. Then to my pleasant surprise, WHAT A JOY the Acqua was! The staff, room and amenities were very pleasant. There...

I have reviewed this hotel before and continue to have loads of positive things to say. The customer service, buffet breakfast, happy hour, free bike rentals and location are all noteworthy. Rooms are spacious and clean and third floor rooms have nice sky lights. My only caveat is about the junior suite with water view and fireplace (room 313), which...

The charming hotel is conveniently located, right off the 101 and on the water, with nice grounds and views, and very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are cozy and large, with nice furniture and well-appointed bathrooms. An excellent buffet-style hot breakfast is offered, which includes everything one may wish for. Warm chocolate chip cookies are available at the reception...
