“Brilliant experience!”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

We have just spent 4 nights in this absolutely amazing hotel - the rooms are excellent and the atmosphere of the whole hotel and grounds was informal and very relaxing and immaculately maintained
Saddles restaurant fantastic food and great service - best steak ever! Lovely staff special mention for Sandy.
Walking distance to a lovely town
After three weeks of travelling throughout the west this was by far the best in terms of accommodation amenities and service

What a great hotel in Sonoma. Walking distance from the square and all the restaurants, but far enough away that its quiet.

Each "cabin" has ~4 units, but you never hear your neighbors and you feel isolated which is great.

Perfect staging area for visiting Sonoma and Napa's wineries

I spent three nights in a great room at MacArthur Place. We had two queen beds, a fireplace and a kitchenette. It was perfect for two women traveling together. Lunch at Saddles the day we arrived was delicious and the complimentary wine and cheese everyday at 5 o'clock hit the spot. The wine hostess was so friendly and helpful about the area and restaurants. To top things off I left my pillow which was returned to me in the mail. Very customer friendly with great service. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms off the main road would be quitter. we faced the main road and could hear slight road noise du...

We just returned from our one year anniversary trip to Napa/ Sonoma. This was undoubtedly one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The check in process was seamless. There was wine tasting every night that we were there in the library...yum! The room was spacious and very comfortable. We loved the bed and pillows. The service was impeccable; we had to turn housekeeping away a couple of times. The property is quiet and has a sense of seclusion (at least #42 does) We only heard our neighbors one time when they were out on the patio at the same time as us. There is an outdoor shower and soaking tub that we used daily. Heaven!! Nothing like a brisk morning air in combination with a hot outdoor shower. I was also in love with the hotel's signature scent (bath wash) We would have been content eating at the on-site restaurant every night (Saddles). The location is within walking distance of the square. Also, this is one of the few hotels that the wine tours will stop to pick up. Nothing negative to say at all.

Room Tip: We loved # 42!!

Green Features: They are conscientious. There is a wooden leaf to place on the bed if you don't require linen change. Other than that, I'm not sure. I'm gonna blame it on the wine:)

Where do I start. It's difficult to pick out one thing because everyting was wonderful. The Staff, friendly, so helpfull and attentive. The rooms, spacious and so relaxing. The grounds, beautiful and full of adventure with all the paths and the outdoor chess game. The pool, restaruant and afternoon events are so...well they just make you smile. And the Martini's and Burgers are just wonderful. And you can have them while you are enjoying the pool too. Don't forget to try the steam room then jump in the pool to cool yourself off. FUN!

Room Tip: just give them your dream list and they will find the room for you

This is a lovely hotel, within walking distance of Sonoma Plaza and restaurants, shopping and wine tasting. We received a great welcome. The hotel is a series of buildings around walkways and beautiful grounds. Our room was comfortable - - although there were some issues with poor drainage in the shower, which led to some flooding of the bathroom floor. Bed was comfy. there were a few things that would have improved the room - - a magnifying mirror, some complimentary water. We loved the wine and cheese reception in the afternoon, which featured local wineries and an olive oil tasting. complimentary continental breakfast was adequate - - the basics of yogourt, fruit, bagels, toast, cereal, etc.
We adored Sonoma City, and wish we had had more time there. Overall, this is a good choice.
