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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

This was our 1st stay and we were knocked out at how great everything was. The room was lovely, the view spectacular, the staff friendly and knowledgeable and many nice amenities. Like 24 hour coffee and tea, breakfast, wine and cheese. Easy access to SF. We will definitely return.

I've stayed at this hotel a couple of times now and I've had a great experience each time. The rooms are spacious and really nice. Plus they give you wine when you check in. BONUS.
