Just got back from a 2 night stay at Alexandra's Plaza Suite. We've stayed at various other high end hotels/cottages in Sonoma and have finally found "our fave". Very comfortable, very clean private cottage tucked behind homes on upscale, quiet Second St in downtown. It's a 2 minute stroll to the square. The cottage has excellent amenities, and the little details Cathie & Gene provide give such a personal touch -- they truly want you to be comfortable and enjoy. The bed linens and bed are luxurious. They even offer several different pillows to choose from so you can find "just the right one". They provide a well stocked fridge (literally, we could have stayed a week with all the drinks, juices, fruit, dairy). They also provide coffee, tea, danish, oatmeal, granola bars, popcorn and candy too! We were fortunate to spend time with Gene and taste his award winning wines and get a personal education on wine-making. His Albarino was delicious! We enjoyed Tues night farmer's market in the Square. Great local venue with food, craft booths, music and friendly people. Gene & Cathie invited us to join their group in the park and we (again) were treated to some delicious wines, food & home grown veggies/fruits. The cottage also has a nice private gazebo/patio area with comfy louge chairs and nice lighting to enjoy the warm Sonoma nights with great wine. Stay here. You will love it.
