It's been six months since we spent a long weekend at boon. Since then we've stayed in 11 different hotels in various places around the continent and as we were planning where to go in 2009, boon hotel+spa made the short list. It was one of only two places we've placed a priority on returning to this year.
All of the great reviews are accurate and we agree so I won't repeat what's been written many times before. I will reiterate though, what great hosts the owners are to all guests. They make some great cocktails, perfect coffee, and are very generous with their knowledge of the area. They even helped us get reservations in a solidly booked SFO restaurant that we had tried to secure for weeks. We wanted a low-key relaxing weekend and from the minute we walked through the arbor, our desire came true. The only thing we would change is to have had a shower big enough for two in our room, but the fireplace made up for it.
We were there during the Russian River Blues Festival which takes place on the river bank. We highly recommend the Fest, and highly recommend boon hotel+spa.
