“Fabulous Location. Clean, Quaint, and Charming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

The location of this hotel is great - right on the square in the center of Sonoma! Within walking distance of everything in the square. It's an older place but with current updates. Convenient little parking lot in the back worked well for us. Clean rooms, nice shower, balcony, and comfortable bed.

4 of us requested wakeup calls, and none of us got them - so be sure to set your alarms!

Fabulous food in the restaurant below as well.

We just ate here, but had the most perfectly cooked salmon I've ever had. I even ate the skin which i don't normally do, but it was cripsy, perfecty salted and just the hint of the underlying unctuous salmon fat. Also the Mexican Pot du Creme was fabulous!! Our best dinner in wine country.

Love this hotel, can't beat the location and the common areas are beautiful. Restaurant EDK is exceptional! Rooms are not luxurious but are very pleasant, most importantly there is a comfortable bed and pillows and the hotel is smart enough to give you a radio with nature sounds to help drown out the noises you will hear from (1) the plaza (2) the courtyard or (3) the restaurant and bar... this is the only drawback with the hotel.

Great location in the heart of Sonoma. Restaurant at the hotel was fantastic. The service was outstanding. The front desk was great at providing recommendations of wineries in the region that catered to my tastes.

The staff was welcoming and helpful. The Hotel is two stories and they carried our luggage to our room (no elevators). The hotel is very clean and rooms nicely, simply done...balconies with chair, should you want to sit and enjoy fresh air, overlooking the square.

There are two restaurants...for breakfast a cute coffee shop (ala Starbucks)....and the restaurant has a beautiful menu and the food was gourmet...delicious. There is a room with fireplace you can sit in before dinner and have your cocktail..they will serve you dinner there if you should want. Waiters were all so gracious.
