A little hidden gem right off the freeway. Rooms are quiet, all facing away from the freeway and toward the water. Very pleasant stay. Wine and cheese, a roaring fire in the lobby and very pet friendly.

This is a boutique hotel conveniently located near the highway. Rooms were clean but the furniture was a little tired looking, and it took a long time for the heat to work. Private terrace that looks out to the lake was a plus. There is no gym at the hotel premise, but they will provide a pass to the nearest...

Had a lovely stay at this charming boutique hotel. They seem to have thought of everything! The staff is very gracious and caring. The evening reception and breakfast buffet were high quality and perfect! Thank you.

They really take care of you at the Acqua. And their breakfast bar waffles are so fun and yummy. Fabulously designed modern style rooms & meeting areas with lovely views. Clean with especially nice bathrooms. Located off the freeway, you'd think it would be noisy. Nope-an oasis of quiet. Attended a forum and dinner. Both were very nice and servers...

We were staying just for one night to visit a friend in the area, and we had to check in late in the evening. We were met with very friendly staff who showed us to our room, which was very clean and modern, and had a great little sitting area separate from the bedroom area. There was also a whirlpool...

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,...
