The grounds were lovely. At that time of year, lots and lots of stuff was in bloom. But any time of the year, there would be very interesting sculptures (see picture). I did not use the spa.
We were still on East Coast time and finding a cup of coffee at 6am was impossible (they did have one of those tiny two-cup jobs in the room with Wolfgang Puck coffee, but I like my java light with milk). And finding the ice machine was a challenge.

Later that evening, we headed back to the hotel, quickly picked up our key, and headed to our room, which was right above a few miscellaneous stores. The first thing I noticed upon entering the hallways where some of the hotel rooms were located was that the smell of spoiled olive oil permeated the air. It wasn’t exactly the most disgusting smell I have ever encountered, but certainly not the best either. The good news was that the smell in the hallway did not also inhabit our room. Our room here was very nice with a gas fireplace, king-size bed, sitting area, and the best feature by far was the bathroom, which had a open window looking over the bed that was covered by wooden blinds that could be utilized when privacy was needed while bathing. The toilet was in a small separate room, there was a glass shower stall and an extremely large soaking tub that even came with complimentary bath salts. Also supplied were some of the nicest-smelling lotions, shampoos and conditioners, which filled the room with essence of lavender and vanilla when we showered.
In the evenings, we were treated to beautiful sunsets that could be viewed through the French doors that led to our balcony, which was large enough for a wrought-iron table and two chairs. It was a perfect place to sit and watch the sun go down under the rolling green hills of Sonoma Valley. The only negative aspect to this was that the hotel is situated right off a main road, so of course there are some traffic sounds; however, we heard neither traffic nor the sounds of other guests during our two-day stay here in Sonoma.
The price was just great here for us, because again, I used my travel agent status to acquire a rate of $69.00 when I believe the normal rate here was at least a minimum of $140.00 and up. Overall this was a great place to stay for a few days, soak up some Californian sun, tour some vineyards, and of course try some food at some of the great restaurants nearby.
