This hotel is in a great location, right on the town square. However, the hotel was a disappointment. The room was quite bare with a hard, uncomfortable bed; linens were rough and the towels were threadbare. After the first day of a five day stay, toiletries were never replaced. We had to ask at the desk for soap, shampoo and...

My husband and I stayed here last year. I made the reservation site unseen and was SO pleasantly surprised. We still talk about that room. We had planned out our trip and only could stay in Sonoma for one night - we were so bummed when we had to leave. We were given a room apart from the main building,...

What a wonderful place! Right by the plaza, which turned out to be a great benefit (evening pop-up farmers market and food stalls), wonderful laid-back small town ambiance. Terrific base to explore Sonoma wineries and come back at night to walk to excellent restaurants (including the one in the hotel) and not have to drive anywhere until tomorrow. And the...

My partner and I stayed at this hotel in June of 2012. I apologize for the delayed review, but better late than never? The hotel is well situated on the square in Sonoma. A prime location! This is perhaps it's best asset and well worth paying a bit more. We arrived on a Thursday afternoon for an extended weekend stay,...

We have been here a few times on trips to the wine country and we really enjoy the food location and ambiance of the restaurant. We made the mistake of going to dry creek kitchen in Sonoma one time and this place Is definitely much much better that that. Not cheap but good food and consistent good service. Hope to...

The Eldorado has a great setting by the town square; convenient to shops, etc. We had a very comfortable room with French door out to a balcony overlooking the pool area. The room was clean, simple and just right (No teddy bears or dried flowers). Our dinners on the back patio were fabulous!!! All the staff, house-keepers, front desk, servers,...

The El Dorado is a reasonably priced, well-kept hotel with an exceptional staff. I would have given it 5 stars, if the room had been nicer. It was fine, clean and comfortable, but certainly not exceptional. The main part of the historic hotel was very attractive. I read reviews about some noise problems, but this was not something we experienced....

My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant after leaving the girl and the fig since they didn't have Chardonnay on the menu and that is what my husband wanted! What a nice find - the hostess was warm and inviting, even though we didn't have a reservation on a busy night. We sat in a lovely outside garden...

It was the perfect day to have a birthday lunch, perfect setting under an old fig tree. Enjoyed the summer salad tremendously. The vegetable panini had delightful favours but the Reuben was a bit fatty for me. Lovely, simply
