MacArthur Place Sonoma

Nice accommodations, friendly helpful staff, great spa & massage, very good breakfast & dinners at Saddles the restaurant.....only drawback was our lodging was next to a main road so there was some inordinate amount of traffic noise at times.....next time would stay at one of their rooms further back from the entrance road.

Hotel in the center of Sonoma. Close to everything

One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Clean, quite, great staff, wonderful happy hour and restaurant. Beautiful grounds, very serene...hard to believe you are in the middle of town!

Absolutely amazing

I loved this hotel. The location is really convenient as it is just off the main road; however, it is so quiet and peaceful there you would never guess it. I came in for 1 night on business and did not get a chance to take full advantage of the property; however, my time there was so relaxing. I had a very friendly check in, strolled around the grounds which are beautiful and retired to my room with a DVD from their library. The room was unbelievable. Flat screen TV, surround sound, fireplace, jacuzzi bath tub and outdoor rain shower. After a bath in the jacuzzi tub, a drink, and DVD; I slept like a baby. They had a great continental breakfast in the morning which was a huge spread for continental. The staff was really great too. Very personal, warm and not a canned type of service sometimes you get from chains. Anyhow, definitely want to go back for longer and for pleasure.

MacArthur Place Review

The MacArthur Place has a country theme, but just enough to make you feel at peace. Also there you will find a Chess Garden with huge pieces for kids, wine tasting for the adults, games and movies you can rent to see/watch in your room, bike riding, a library, and more! At the MacArthur Place you will find a quaint feel in the city and in the 'hotel' itself. The people here are friendly and peaceful. There some cats here to keep your room safely guarded. =] (Although if you are allergic to animals you may want to do more activities in the city instead - like bike riding for instance.) The scenery here is beautiful even if you dont come during the wine season. In the midst of the 'MacArthur Place Towne' is a resturant called Saddles. Saddles has wall paintings of horses, chickens, and cows. Instead of having paintings and only that, this special resturant has more. Saddles has a bar, Cowboy boots lining the wall above the bar, saddles well glued to wood pieces so you can sit on it while waiting for friends, old tack, etc. By far this is mine and other's favorite hotel. It has family fun or a peacful honeymoon, either way The MacArthur Place is a sweet and luxurious getaway.

This is the spot!

My wife and I stayed here for part of our honeymoon - and would go back in a minute! It is very close to the center of the city, but feels a world away. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are spacious and the spa tops it all off! The wineries were our big attraction, but this was the perfect place to come back to after a long day of sipping wine!

The hotel staff was great...from the front desk to the restaurant staff to the very helpful woman at the daily comp wine and cheese. The room was beautiful with fireplace and jacuzzi tub. The gardens around the hotel are so beautiful and well maintained...I wanted to take home the rosemary bush that was taller than me! Great spa treatments and steakhouse too. We will definitely be back for an anniversary trip.

Locals Love it too

This is one of the best places to stay in town. Nearby Downtown Sonoma's Square and a stones throw from the best wineries in the area. Great places to eat and many sport activities. Recommend visiting during the summer or autumn months.
