“Lovely Grounds, Fantastic Spa”
Reviewed 5 March 2014 via mobile

We spent three nights as part of a girl's trip and the accommodations were terrific. Our room faced MacArthur Street and it was a bit noisy, but not unbearable. The spa is cozy and the staff is wonderful. We had massages, facials and mineral baths. All of the services were superb. Ask for Gloria if you schedule a massage. Even in February the grounds were beautiful. The staff was very helpful and friendly. MacArthur Place is just a short walk from the Sonoma square and is a wonderful, quiet place to relax.

Stayed February 2014, travelled with friends

We stayed here in December 2013, and it was our 3rd visit.
This was the best one yet! Neither of us was sick, the weather was nice, no noisy neighbors, and a great room!
We had a Deluxe King Suite, and t was really such a nice room! I could live there.
They even brought us complimentary "welcome back" gifts (snacks and such) shortly after we arrived.
The room was comfy, quiet, and just plain wonderful.
Dinner at Saddles was great, drinks at the bar were good, and the staff was friendly.

Everything about this Inn was great. We arrived late for check in and were warmly greeted. We were upgraded to a wonderful room and given a bottle of wine as we missed the wine reception. The staff went out of their way to help us with our plans. The property was lovely. The breakfast buffet is much better than at most hotels. The wine reception was also lovely and nice way to end the day/ start the evening. I love how this place includes everything in your nightly rate. There is no extras, for wifi, breakfast, etc. I wish more hotels would follow their lead. A special thanks to Bunky for making our trip great!

We decided that prior to our "real" 30th anniversary bash, we would spend the weekend someplace nice and cozy, Sonoma. There are plenty of places to stay in wine country, but our choice was the MacArthur Place. We couldn't have been happier! Knowing that we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary, they surprised us with a bottle of champange and chocolates, very nice.

The staff were excellent, from reservations to front desk. They made us feel welcome and did everything that could be asked of a property of this caliber. We stayed in a suite complete with fireplace and HUGE spa bath. Great time at a great place!!

Room Tip: Request a stay at the back of the property which abuts a high school. If you are staying the weeken...

This is a wonderful place for a weekend getaway. A night here seems as if I was gone for a week. Refreshed, relaxed and well taken care of. When I made the booking, Bunky was a wonderful help and welcomed us in advance with special goodies. The breakfast is wonderful and again Bunky at the front desk makes this a rare getaway as you are treated like royalty!

MacArthur Place lived up to all of the great reviews. The hotel staff was very friendly and inviting. The hotel grounds were cute and quiet. We even got upgraded to a King Suite for our stay. It was a beautiful room and a wonderful surprise. The wine and cheese hour was a nice touch - they had four different wines to taste and some nice local cheeses. And the spa was a great experience. They really took care of us and made sure we got what we wanted. A return to this wonderful hotel is definitely in the future.

My wife and I were celebrating our 45th year together (yes, we are married). From checking in at reception to the moment we departed, it was clear that the staff was there for only one reason. To ensure we were provided the very best service possible.

I don't mean good service, I MEAN INCREDIBLE SERVICE.

Had some special needs. Order flowers for our room and ordered more for our dining later in the night. The Saddles restaurant was fantastic. We would go there for dinner anytime.

Rooms were beautiful and kept spotless.
EVERYTHING was just like one would expect
