Anchoring the west side of Healdsburg’s historic town plaza is the chic Hotel Healdsburg. The plush curved velvet couches, mod fireplace and poured concrete floor in the lobby lend an urban loft vibe. The rooms feel like cozy apartments with warm color schemes, Tibetan carpets on pecan wood floors and Sonoma County dreamscapes in subdued earth tones by local artist Wade Hoefer.
Bed & Bath
Teak platform beds with goose down duvets, feather beds and Frette linens ensure cozy sleeps. Bathrooms feel like a trip to the spa with Italian glass tile, walk-in showers, fluffy robes and custom organic spa products (some include six-foot soaking tubs). Most rooms have French doors leading onto private balconies, and all have CD/MP3 players, flatscreen TVs and DVD players (for use with the hotel’s movie library).
Start your morning with fresh-baked pastries, smoked salmon and egg dishes. For lunch, watch the action on the plaza while tucking into wood-fired pizzas at Pizzando. Before dinner, grab a craft cocktail and perhaps some house-cured charcuterie at the Spirit Bar before heading to your table at the Charlie Palmer-helmed Dry Creek Kitchen, which focuses on local wines and produce (you’ll often see chefs carting the latest harvest from the farmer’s market in an adorable red wagon). Guests unwind in the hot tub, by the pool, by the lobby fireplace or on an airy covered porch that leads to a grassy courtyard dotted with Adirondack chairs. There’s also a six-room spa with biodynamic treatments and locally sourced products.
In the Area
Situated northwest of Napa in Sonoma County, Healdsburg has a charming historic plaza and a real town feel that’s part cowboy, part craftsman, part boho-chic. The town is surrounded by three premium appellations — Russian River, Dry Creek and Alexander Valley — making it a good base from which to explore Wine Country. Stop into Oakville Grocery to pick up artisan picnic provisions before your wine country explorations. Save at least part of your stay for exploring downtown Healdsburg, and at night, book a table at the legendary Spoonbar, a hotspot for contemporary American food with a seriously hip scene.
How to Get There
From check in to check out, our stay couldn’t have been better!
We arrived before our rooms were ready - valet helped unload car and stored luggage until room was ready. We hung out in the lobby bar area and people watched for a while and experienced excellent customer service from all of the staff who helped us as well as others.
Hotel is located in such a great area for exploring as we celebrated Mother’s Day, a birthday, and watched our son in the Santa Rosa Ironman - not to forget the great wineries too.
The rooms were spacious, clean, well stocked and quite comfortable. The complementary breakfast was just the best way to start the day. I just wish the loud speaking guests would keep their voices down- I don’t care to know everything about you and your life. Anyhow, that’s not about the hotel - just rude behavior by the guests.
My wife is more of a traveler than me and she can’t wait to come back again!
Thanks for providing excellent customer service.
Older hotel trying to be 5 Star The space is not well configured. The staff is good and works hard to justify the high price but this hotel is a terrible value. Our friends at the Best Western had a better experience for the money
Hotel Healdsburg is a fantastic place to stay. Staff is warm and welcoming. Rooms are well-apportioned and have extraordinarily comfortable beds. Location can't be beat with top-notch restaurants on the property and in close proximity. Wine, shopping, dining, lovely spa, terrific breakfast...can't say enough good things.
Have been for business and pleasure. Will absolutely return.
We had a great stay. Dry Creek Kitchen is great if you are a wind drinker, because corkage is waived every night if you bring a wine from Sonoma. Will not forget the couple across the courtyard being quite vocal during their afternoon lovemaking.
We booked a courtyard suite, and specifically asked when booking if there was a door between the bedroom and living room and they said "yes" so we booked it. When we arrived everything went wrong. (1) When we pulled into the parking lot a woman decided to back out of a parking space all the way to the street, forcing us to back up all the way to the street, very uncomfortable and difficult. It turned out she was part of the hotel's valet team. She could have turned the car around and went around us, causing less discomfort to us. (2) We parked finally, then unloaded our bikes and bags. There were two attendants in the lot who just watched, offering no assistance. One of them just demanded our key while our hands were full of bags and bikes. I finally realized they were not going to offer help so I asked. The attendant then helped. (3) Our room did not have a door between the bedroom and the living room as promised. We discussed with the person at the front desk she said she was so sorry but she cannot help us. My husband said that was not acceptable. Eventually we discussed with the manager and he accused us of lying, that we never asked about the door. That was unacceptable to call us liars. WE DID ASK ABOUT THE DOOR. (4) We were starving, so we went to the pool to relax and have some lunch. We ordered two pizzas from the hotel menu. The pizzas came in a carryout box with napkins and plastic forks. No plates, no knives, no peppers/cheese. In addition, we were charged for delivery, room service and a service charge. When did eating at the pool become "room charge?" Also there was no indication that this was carryout and not coming from their kitchen. (5) The pool area was a dive. The water was filthy with leaves, dirt and other debris. The dirty towel box was overflowing. It was not nice and relaxing. At this point we called a nearby hotel that had vacancies and left.
