Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country
Ranked #6 of 24 Hotels in Santa Rosa
Reviewed 2 January 2013

After much thought we decided on the Hyatt at Santa Rosa. It is a very nice property, with a very friendly staff. From Santa Rosa it was very easy to explore all the areas Sonoma has to offer. We had a patio room over looking the pool and garden area. It was spacious and well appointed.

Room Tip: Patio rooms are very nice!

The Hyatt in downtown Santa Rosa is in an excellent location from which to explore the Sonoma and Napa wineries. The rooms are large, quiet, and decently decorated. The breakfast restaurant is attached but you need to walk outside to reach it (as it appears to be run as an external restaurant).

The building is a rambling 3-story pseudo-Spanish style place. Outside restaurants and some wine-tasting places are within easy walking distance. I was pleasantly surprised to see the local and organic scene, which I did not expect in the historic district of Santa Rosa.

You will need a car or tour to sample the wineries... all within a comfortable distance.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite.

This is a very nice, generic hotel. It does not offer many amenities that less expensive chains do (free breakfast or happy hour). There is no coffee in the lobby and you have to walk outside to the restaurant (sometimes in the rain) for coffee and/or a pricey breakfast. They charge for internet if you don't have an upgraded room. Probably won't stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the courtyard are better...

I recently stayed 2 nights at the Hyatt Vineyard Creek for business in Santa Rosa. As a Hyatt elite member, I prefer Hyatt properties, but the recent reviews get it just about right--it is a decent Hyatt, not quite up to snuff compared to most city Hyatt properties, a little tired, with decent and sometimes very good service, but lacking the niceties found at most Hyatts elsewhere. The location is superb, with easy walking access to downtown Santa Rosa or driving access to nearby wineries and freeways.

Considering Santa Rosa really doesn't have any excellent hotels, as agreed to by my colleagues and clients who live there, this Hyatt may actually be your best bet for a decent hotel. Just be sure not to expect typical Hyatt niceties when you stay!

Checked in after the sun set so couldn't see much of the property. Service at checkin was efficient and friendly. Good advice on wineries. Room was large, maybe a little too large for the amount of furniture in it. Bed was very comfortable and slept very well. Free parking helps. Bathroom spacious with separate shower and tub. Breakfast held at the Brasserie and the eggs Benedict was very well done and tasty.

This place is just what we needed! We wanted a traditional Thanksgiving dinner away from home and a chance to see The Schulz Museum the next day. Brasserie restaurant put on a nice three-course, prix fix holiday meal. Every staff member we encountered at the restaurant and the hotel was friendly and hospitable. This hotel has a remarkable sculpture garden out back. I imagine this is the setting for some awesome weddings. The fireplace in the lobby and the fire pit in the courtyard make this place a pretty cool spot to hang out with friends.

The previous review wrote, '...not much Hyatt." That may be true but not in a total negative aspect. This is one of only a few Hyatt Regency properties left in the country with free onsite parking and no resort fee even though it has a spa. Santa Rosa is a low key town so it was nice to not be ambushed by valets and bellmen when we arrived in the porte cochere. Don't get me wrong, there are times when I want that level of pampering and service -- almost all other times in fact -- but this wasn't one of them. So, appreciate this wonderful property for what it is: "Hyatt Unplugged" if you will.

The rooms: Housekeeping was suboptimal but acceptable. The phone was dusty and had what looked like makeup and some grime in the handset craddle which is a sure sign that it is not being cleaned with disinfectant regularly. Phones, TV remotes and light switches are germ hotspots that need regular attention after each guest. Moreover, a cavernous void existed in the credenza where the refrigerator use to be. The lack of a refrigerator was an inconvenience for us because we have a 2-year-old who needs milk to wind down before bedtime and occasionally in the middle of the night. Lastly, we were given what Hyatt calls a "hypoallergenic room." This is an upgrade according to the front desk. There was an air purifier humming in the corner of the room when we walked in; however, the filters were caked with dust and lint so I'm not sure what the advantage was to having it. We have no allergies, so it wasn't that big of a deal for us one way or the other.

At the end of the day, the amazing people, perfect location and beautiful grounds are what will make us come back here again. It's a nice place to stay.

Have stayed here before and just spent a couple of nights there two weekends ago. The hotel is nice but I didn't find the hotel overly welcoming or the staff overly friendly. No one went out of their way to show any type of hospitality from check-in to check-out. We weren't there for use of any of the amenities other that a room to sleep so it is what it is. Though the hotel appears "newer" the rooms could use a bit of updating and the stairwells were musty and the carpet was filthy. The bath towels were nothing shy of sandpaper. I expected a little bit more out of a Hyatt and the $4 price tag on a small bottle of water is the room - well that's a bit much but I know they are just trying to make a coin. The hotel is fine for overnight and easy access to all the vineyards. I just wasn't wowed by anything here.

Room Tip: Ask for and interior view room overlooking fire pit. Our room overlooked a parking lot.
