It was quite an experience going back to my hometown after 17 years away. We stayed at the lovely French chateau inspired Les Mars hotel in downtown Healdsburg. As soon as you walk in, you are greeted warmly and treated well. It felt very European in style and ambiance. Our room was spacious, and the bathroom was large and had plenty of storage for shaving kits, make-up bags, etc.
Continental breakfast is delivered to your room between 8 and 10 (your choice of time), and then you have tasting rooms, shopping, and plenty of places to eat within easy walking distance.
Les Mars is very charming but it was a little disconcerting seeing a three story hotel where Quimby's Shell used to stand.
