Sonoma County is one of California’s top wine destinations, an area where over 70,000 acres of vineyards, majestic redwood forests, and 55 miles of dramatic coastline is sprinkled with charming cities that offer a quiet, small town atmosphere. However, if you prefer a more urban vibe, head to Santa Rosa, where a thriving downtown scene and central location make it a great home base in Wine Country. Santa Rosa has a wide array of accommodations to choose from, from resort-style hotels to charming inns and even budget-friendly options. Here are some of our favorites.

Lodging / Santa Rosa

Vintners Resort

Vintners Resort is the kind of place you think of when you imagine a Wine Country resort surrounded by vineyards. This is a 4 diamond, California-certified Green Hotel that is big on atmosphere and amenities. Every room has a California King bed, Keurig coffee maker, and either a private patio or balcony, and most rooms have a vineyard view. Set on 92 acres of gardens and vineyards, take advantage of the spa, bocce ball court, jogging trails, walking paths, and happy hour every Wednesday through Sunday. Also worth experiencing is the resort’s nationally recognized John Ash & Company restaurant, which was the first in Sonoma to introduce the concept of seasonal cooking with local ingredients.

Insider Tip

With an extensive local wine list, you could easily check into Vinters Resort and never leave but still taste many of the great Sonoma County wines.

Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country

Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country looks like a Mediterranean villa, but inside feels and looks more like a luxury farmhouse with white-washed wooden beams and high ceilings, creating a soothing palette for the senses. Hyatt Grand beds and their trademark spa-inspired bathrooms with rainfall showers ensure your physical comfort, whether staying in a contemporary standard room, deluxe King, or a suite with a garden view. Amenities include charging stations, a fitness center, and a large outdoor pool, and the hotel is pet friendly. The on-site spa incorporates elements of Wine Country into treatments by utilizing local lavender and grape seed extracts.

Lodging / Santa Rosa

The Sandman Hotel

Sandman is a good choice for budget-conscious travelers or families traveling with kids. Remodeled in 2019, the Sandman is reminiscent of a 1960s motor lodge. Hang out at the pool or grab a light drink to savor while enjoying a cool Santa Rosa night by the firepit. If you’re feeling the need to burn off some Wine Country calories, the fitness center even has a Peloton bicycle. Or, dip into the heated pool. Start your day with the complimentary breakfast before heading out for some Sonoma wine tasting.

Insider Tip

The Sandman Hotel offers many of the amenities of a luxury property without a luxury price tag, and it’s conveniently located within twenty minutes of some of Santa Rosa’s best wineries and only 30 minutes from Bodega Bay.

Flamingo Resort & Spa

An icon in Sonoma Valley, the Flamingo Resort has hosted locals and celebrities since 1957. A multi-million dollar update brings a fresh aesthetic to the resort property but retains the classic mid-century modern design. Enjoy the casual poolside bar and dining area, as well as a new restaurant, Lazeaway, featuring Island-inspired flavors and spice. There are 170 rooms spread across five buildings, with 14 poolside suites as well as ADA-compliant suites. Enjoy yoga, massage, and spa amenities at this 10-acre resort ideally located just off the highway…somehow it still feels like you are far away from it all.

Insider Tip

Given its central location in Santa Rosa, the Flamingo Resort is a great location to jump off and explore both Calistoga in Napa Wine Country or the fantastic wineries nearby in Russian River Valley and Alexander Valley.
