The Hotel La Rose was a surprise to us. I wasn't expecting much as we usually don't stay at bed and breakfast type of places. Honestly speaking I'm a bit more of a travel snob, and we really enjoyed our stay.
The staff were very friendly and helpful just like a Four Seasons. (Yes I'm that kind of travel snob). We had a really large room in the Carriage House with a beautiful four poster antique bed. It's a real antique...and it totally squeaked. :) We laughed just getting into bed cause it squeaked so much, but it was really lovely. Our room had a nice tub that fit two. Yes, we tried and we were both comfortable.
The location is great right in downtown Santa Rosa. Parking is in a lot across the street kitty corner to the hotel entrance behind Aroma Cafe. Aroma cafe is pretty good too, well worth the visit. We had a Ham Aroma sandwich and it was pretty good.
We forgot a few items and Macy's and a mall were about a 10 min walk. Great location!
The carpet was plush but seemed a bit stained, and I think that might be my biggest complaint!
The hotel just acquired the Iron Stone restaurant next to the hotel and guests receive 10% off their bill or they have a continental breakfast for free. The food wasn't bad, the French toast is pretty good. That gets the best reviews and during our stay I ordered them twice.
We stopped by every day and got fresh ice and each time they included 2 bottles of water. Plus they were really nice and said they'd be happy to deliver it.
Oh ok, just remembered the air conditioner didn't work too well, but the nights were so cool that we were able to open our French door and cool down the room.
For dinner we walked to Starks Steakhouse and Petite Syrah. Skip Starks and go to Petite Syrah which is totally worth the trip.
Considering the price we paid per night, this was pretty good for us. I hope your stay is as enjoyable.
There is no pool or fitness center.
Upgrade to the carriage house - it's peaceful.
