This is a lovely, spacious hotel on the northern outskirts of Santa Rosa, just off Rt. 101. The buildings are spread out on the hillside near Redwood Medical Center and Kaiser. The old red Round Barn on the hill is a good marker for your exit off 101. Staff at the front desk are courteous, friendly and helpful. A slightly steep $50 pet fee per stay ensures your pooch a room too, and you’ll probably be booked into the buildings around the pool area with lots of grass (the meadow) for them to roam and deck access to the ground. Safe, free parking and lots of it. Breakfast is included in their Nectar restaurant, choice of plated meals or the large, scrumptious buffet, seated in or outside with a great view of the valley. Starbucks coffee aplenty. The rooms are average for Hilton chain, I could see no one had moved the furniture to clean behind as I looked for an outlet. The BEST thing about this place is the warm, saltwater pool, open 6AM to 10PM, fabulous! The cool fog was still on the ground as I swam one morning, only one other swimmer in with me. The pool leaves your skin feeling smooth and conditioned. I’m definitely going back!
If you don't like dogs, don't stay in the buildings around the pool.

An early morning dip in the warm and soothing waters of our salt-water pool sounds like the perfect way to start the day! I would like to extend our sincere gratitude for your detailed account of your stay at the Hilton Sonoma Wine Country Hotel. We love our guests, including the four-legged variety, and are so glad that you found our associates to be so courteous and helpful. We would be happy for you to stay again, and we hope it's soon.
