6 Best Downtown Healdsburg Hotels

By Hana-Lee Sedgwick February 13, 2024

Situated in the northern part of Sonoma County, Healdsburg seems to offer everything one might want while visiting Wine Country, including great wine, excellent restaurants, boutique shopping, and even a charming historic plaza in the heart of town.

While there are plenty of reasons to venture outside of Healdsburg during a visit, like world-class Sonoma wineries and picturesque scenery, staying downtown offers a chance to experience the best this small town has to offer—with the added convenience of being able to walk most places. When you’re ready to book your visit, here are 6 downtown Healdsburg hotels worthy of a stay.

Named after Harmon Heald, the town’s pioneering founder, this contemporary hotel features 39 rooms outfitted with private balconies, bluetooth sound systems, and original art, as well as plenty of deluxe amenities to note, such as a solar-heated pool, complimentary yoga classes, and bikes to use free of charge. During your stay, don’t miss visiting the Rooftop lounge, where panoramic views of downtown Healdsburg and the Sonoma mountains are best enjoyed while sipping a glass of wine as the sun goes down.

SingleThread may be renowned for its Michelin-starred restaurant (honored with Three Michelin Stars and a Michelin Green Star, to be specific), where a 10-course meal of seasonally-inspired fare is definitely something to write home about, it’s also home to a small inn worth discovering.
