“A chic stay in a lovely town.”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

This hotel sits attractively on the corner of the Healdsburg square. Parking to unload is easy and there is plenty of help. We loved the high ceilings and communal spaces with country chic furnishings, fireplace,flowers and connection to the outdoors.Lots of nice areas to sit outside also.
Our room was furnished beautifully with a wonderfully comfortable bed though the outside aircon unit was loud at times. The pool area is very European, enclosed and sheltered. Planting throughout the grounds including lots of vines on the building is most attractive.
The breakfast is good and the newish casual restaurant Pizzando exceded our expectations. The massages at the spa were lovely.
We have to make a special mention of the concierge ( blond..) who was awesome. She had every bit of information you could ever want, super efficient but in a friendly easy manner. We were so glad we had booked here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Hotel overlooks main plaza. Still has that small town wine country feel. But the hotel and Dry Creek Kitchen speaks to the sophistication of someone used to the Hamptons. Small town charm, amazing restaurants, art galleries outside the front door.

Rooms are all different to full suites. Pool is well designed with many private areas to spend the day under the sun or in the shade. Breakfast buffet is beautiful. High end sheets, coffee, juice, bar area in every room.

Room Tip: Go during off days and get great deals. Weekends book fast so plan early

Highlights: Double Queen room was huge and bathroom was spacious. Hotel grounds has lots of light and private outdoor spaces. Pool was classic European style and breakfast service was great. Location in Healdsburg is great.

Issues: I felt mislead by the pricing of my package and never got a response from my e-mail. I booked the gourmet getaway which stated there was for a 4 course tasting menu for 2 at the Dry Creek Kitchen and a credit of up to $170. Since the 4 course tasting menu is $65 per person, I assume it included tax and gratuity, otherwise the credit is really exactly $130, not up to $170. But when I checked out, the hotel front desk insisted on charging me for the gratuity and taxes. I wrote an e-mail to the front desk and no response. Also, when I checked in I asked the front desk to change the time of my dinner reservation at the hotel restaurant and they said I could do it myself from my room. The other small issue is road noise in the am from trucks driving down the road right next to the hotel.

For a $500 per night room, nickel and diming left a sour taste in what would have otherwise been a great hotel stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main street as you will otherwise be woken up by trucks in the am. Get...

My husband and try to make a yearly trek out to Healdsburg. We have stayed in 3 different hotels and BY FAR...our best stay to date has been at the Hotel Healdsburg. We loved the grounds, the staff was super attentive without being obtrusive and the complimentary bottle of sparkling wine upon check in, didn't hurt matters. One night we even stayed in and picked up pizzas from Pizzando downstairs and even that was a fantastic meal. All in all.....I feel as though we found our "IT" place to stay while visiting Healdsburg.

Hotel is in a great location, right on the square. Yes it can be noisy from the street but this is part of the fun being in this lively location . Rooms a spacious and clean, the decor is modern and and light. Not sure if this was an old building that got updated, the only issue we had were noise within the wall, we assume it were water pipes. We thought the service was professional and accommodating. Pool area is not very large but plenty for the size of the hotel. Many good restaurants close by, not to mantion the wine.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the court

Ditto Delaw's review. Some reviewers didn't like the room decor - too plain. Guys, this is California Wine Country and the furniture reflects an elegant casualness. The colors in our room were wonderful - the simple night tables were painted different, but subtle, colors. The rugs were exquisite throughout. An orange throw gave just the right punch of color. Loved the lobby where an excellent breakfast (included) is served by a most accommodating staff. Yes, it's not inexpensive but there is real value added here. Service was top notch; Sam, the valet, knew our name the first day and couldn't wait to offer bottles of cold water to take on our drive/hike. But...the pool was pretty cold which surprised me.

Do not hesitate to book a reservation at Hotel Healdsburg. Yes, it is pricey. But it is not "over priced" - it is worth every cent. Plus, a lovely breakfast is included in the rate.
Our room - on the third floor - was very comfortable and spacious. French doors opened onto the back garden and a serene view of the distant hills. There were inside shutter doors that could be closed at night so the outside door could be left open for the air - lovely, lovely, lovely! Fabulous bed, very thoughtful amenities throughout the room and bath. Wonderful soaking tub, super linens, towels and robes. Wonderful nightly turn down - with cookies and bathroom towel refreshening. The rooms are equipped with a Keurig coffee maker and a fridge which has several complimentary drinks and snacks (and they are replenished daily).
Off the lobby, the Hotel has a cozy bar/lounge area, an outside seating area, a beautiful heated and landscaped pool and adjoining restaurant with outdoor seating. The included breakfast is served in the bar/lounge area in front of a huge gas burning fireplace. The food is wonderful, the atmosphere cozy on California's cool mornings and the service just super.
The Hotel could not be better located: it is directly on Healdsburg's charming square within easy walking distance of fabulous restaurants, charming shops and galleries. The staff and housekeeping were just exceptional. Valet parking was easy and the young attendants were always eager to please.
Healdsburg is located near many Sonoma vineyards and it is an easy drive (35 miles) to the Pacific coast and US Rte 1 (we did a loop drive to Bodega Bay up to Jenner then back to Healdsburg along the Russian River Valley road).
We spent three nights at Hotel Healdsburg. It could have been thirty and still not enough. What a fabulous get away. What a first rate property and well run Hotel.

Room Tip: Top floor (third) rooms will be the quietest with back of the Hotel rooms quieter still.
