My husband and I stayed one night at the Acqua on our way back from Northern California to the San Francisco Airport. We thought we could check out Tiburon and Sausalito from this Mill Valley hotel. It was a great location to see both those towns. We arrived just in time for the happy hour which was a very pleasant... More

At the end of your stay the management sends you a survey to complete. I took the time to fill in some of my feedback including the FREE wine happy hour not starting promptly at 5:00pm. The general manager Justin then sent a personal e-mail following up to apologize for the delay and as he put it "It does not... More

My husband and I just returned from a three night stay at the Acqua. Two years ago we were very disappointed, and this was a completely different experience. The room was clean and beautifully maintained. New hardwood floors have been installed, the bathroom was modern and well equipped, the bed was comfortable, and the staff was fantastic. I had originally... More

My husband and I had our expectations exceeded by the Acqua Hotel! Our only regret was that we only had one night to stay. From the very first interaction with the front desk, we were always greeted warmly and treated very well. I had written a note with our online reservation that I was requesting a portable crib, and when... More

What makes this hotel special is the friendly staff and the generous breakfast, wine reception and evening cookies. The rooms are clean and well kept although I had a bit of trouble getting my fireplace working. An employee came in and got it started but it never stayed on unfortunately. May have been just my room though. The location is... More

Beautiful contempery hotel. Friendly check in ,immaculate rooms and the most comfortable beds. We stayed here for 2 nights. Visited the wine country ,hiked Muir Woods and drove along the scenic ocean drive to Stinston Beach. Perfect place to stay before heading into San Francisco for a few days

This is a modest 3 story hotel with wonderful hospitality. Greeted by Michelle-as nice as can be! She even called my room a few minutes after I walked in to make sure it was satisfactory (it was).

Starting with the friendliest reception you can imagine - Wendy made us fee we were being welcomed to her very own bed and breakfast, and even prior to arriving, Tom was very helpful in making a last minute change to our reservation by shuffling room reservations so that we would not have to shuffle once we got there.

Acqua was a pleasant surprise. Wendy at front desk made an effort to find the best room available when we checked in, even asking her co-worker to make sure they chose a room with a great view, etc. They both took the time to deliberate on it and decide. I travel a lot and that type of service is above... More

The hotel decor is reminiscent of a hospital -- there is no charm or personality, just purely functional. There is no kitchen, so forget about room service. The ice maker is extremely loud; hope that you don't get a room next to one. The air conditioner is extremely cold and in our room the thermostat did not work. We oscillated... More
