"Historic charm close to downtown Sonoma"
The three things I love to have included in the price are parking, wi-fi and a good breakfast. MacArthur Place has these and so much more. The service is exceptional at the front desk, in the spa, in the restaurant and on the grounds. It's a charming plantation style hotel with multiple white manors separated and surrounded by gorgeous lush gardens. […] I also enjoyed the spa (Dierdre does a great Swedish massage) and the nightly wine/cheese reception in the library. DVDs available for free viewing is a plus. Downside: passing traffic was a big noisy until later in evening. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best hotel experience"
Our stay was perfect, in every way possible. We loved the room so much that we stayed an extra night. Hotel personnel was so helpful, they even called us more than a week before our arrival to offer to make a dinner reservation for us for Thanksgiving, since reservations were filling up very quickly. The hotel grounds are very nice, it's a pleasure […] to walk around. We even took strolls every evening from the hotel to the Main plaza in Sonoma, it's so close! Overall I think it was our best hotel experience and I would recommend it to anyone! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Wonderful service, very friendly staff,,could not be more helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
The facility is great. They have a complimentary happy hour every day from 5-6PM. They even have a resident cat, AJ, who is a sweet little guy. The location is central to whatever you could want. The only thing that I found interesting is that the photo does not look like the property. I'm not sure from where or what angle this photo was taken.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Oasis in Sonoma"
Hotel is located close to downtown area. Neighborhood is ok, but property is buffered from street noise. We were upgraded, so we did not see the "standard queen" which we booked. Our suite was very roomy, and felt like home. Felt more like being in a B&B than a hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was too short. I arrived quite late and had to leave too early to really take advantage of the rest and relaxation the facility offers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Sonoma Hotel"
We loved MacArthur Place. They simply couldn't do enough for us, always offering to do more. We got a free upgrade to a suite, the breakfast which they modestly called "continental" was far more than that, the wine and cheese in the afternoon was free and gracious, the hotel was immaculate and the grounds were beautiful. When I rented a bike, they almost […] insisted I take a couple bottles of water with me. I have a very few quibbles: the TV was very small for its distance from the viewing area, and why no premium channels? HBO would have been welcome. Still, we borrowed a (free) DVD and watched that. The concierge was awesome; he gave excellent advice about wineries to visit and restaurants to enjoy (and avoid). We would stay there again!! It's kind of expensive but you do get what you pay for. We loved MacArthur Place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I loved the extensive gardens. This is a very serene place. The complimentary wine and cheese from 5-6 was great, as was the morning breakfast buffet that was included. Nice spa and pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a very nice room. The service was exceptional. It was a high price and we could get a capatable room back east for less. Not sure, but maybe this is normal for California.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Fantastic-would go back another time!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had a great visit! The staff was very knowledgeable of what to do in the area..which restaurants and wineries would be good to visit. The only issue I had was that the bed was too firm for my back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Everything was Amazing!"
We love Sonoma, and this was the 1st time visiting MacArthur Place. Wonderful staff, beautiful grounds, and very nice room. The room was much larger and better than the photos (which usually it is the opposite). The pool was great, and we did a couples massage at the Spa which was also great. The hotel is a bit pricey, but worth it! Highly recommended […] for a romantic weekend! My wife wants to go back with her girlfriends as well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Sonoma experience!"
Our suite had a problem with the air conditioning, but the engineer was prompt to address our problem. Management offered to move us, supplied fans during the repair process. They fixed the problem and handled the whole process in a very professional manner, crediting our bill to compensate us for inconvenience. Problems like this happen from time to […] time, but the way they handled the issue was of the highest quality and service. We will definitely go to MacArthur Place again.

"Good but not great."
The gardens were beautiful and immaculately kept, the location central in Sonoma and the pool beautiful. The staff was excellent. We ended up in one of the cottages- it was a spacious room and did have more character than a run-of-the-mill hotel chain, yet nowhere near what I expected at that price point. Moreover, there was audible traffic in the morning […] from the street (not particularly loud but still not the sort of thing one would expect at the dear prices paid). In summary, too expensive for what it offers (I would have been happy had prices been about 25-30% less). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Very nice stay"
This was our first time at the McArthur Inn and it was a very nice surprise. The rooms are individual little "casitas" so it doesn't feel a all like a hotel. When you wake up in the moring and open the windows you are in the middle of a beautiful green, plush garden. The ceilings are high and decorated very "refeshing" with white lines. I didn't eat […] at "Saddles" the restaurant, but as I walked by in the evening, it was full and I could hear many conversations inside. It sounded like everying was enjoying themselves. I did take a look at the room service menu and it had a variety of meals and was affordable. I whish we would have stayed an additional day to enjoy the pool and restaurant. I would definately come back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Wouldn't stay anywhere else."
This was our first trip to wine country and I was expecting to encounter some "snootiness". Little did we know that Sonoma is such a laid back, easy-going town where the people are more concerned with who you are than what you are. The moment we arrived at MacArthur Place we knew that we chose the best place to stay in Sonoma. Lovely grounds (6 acres), […] great restaurants, close to the square and a friendly and incredibly helpful staff make MacArthur Place THE place to stay in Sonoma. We enjoyed our stay so much that I would never even consider staying somehwere else. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will definitely return!"
This is one of the prettiest settings in Sonoma - you could check in and never leave. Wine tasting in the PM is wonderful, heated pool and hot tub were well kept, cute touches like ping pong table and free movie rentals. Just strolling through the gardens was very calming and they were so well kept. Staff was friendly and room was very clean and mo […] dern. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Great and restful time at MacArthur Place. Facility was very clean and quiet. Wine and cheese reception was excellent! Check-in staff was super friendly. Food at breakfast was fantastic.

"MacArthur Place in Sonoma CA"
This hotel was great. The room was beautiful and clean and newly remodeled. They gave us an upgrade without even requesting it. The complimentary breakfast was fresh and great quality. Staff was attentive and friendly. The spa was quaint and lovely. Had a great massage. I've been to a lot of hotels and spas...many with five star ratings....Four seasons, […] the Ritz, etc...and this was by far my best massage. The pool is heated so you can use it even in the winter! Overall, wonderful experience, reasonably priced. I would highly recommend staying here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Best of the Best"
There are few words that can express all of the beauty. From the checking in to the last day we were treated as Queens. It was a Mother and Daughter vacation that worked into memories that will forever be unforgetable. Beds are like heaven, Fireplaces, too. Gardens can not be decribed on paper, you just have to see them. Last but not least is the wonderful […] food at "Saddles" and the wine,Ohhhhh. You must ask to see A.J. when you go, as he is the CEO.....Boss of the place, very independent beautuful resident Cat. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"MacArthur Place - a fabulous cozy hideaway!"
My friend and I arrived on Dec 31, 2011 around 7pm after a wonderful day visiting/tasting wine in the near by areas. It was a last minute trip to do something different for New Years and we will never forget it! We did not have prior dinner reservations and the MacArthur Place staff went right to work looking for a place on line while I was checking […] in and made dinner reservations for us downtown within walking distance...but we drove. I was a bit hungry and while one staff was making dinner reservations another went in the back and came out with a great looking plate of cheese, crackers and fruit for us to take to our room. The customer service was wonderful and the room was fabulous. Very cozy..and I loved the bathroom:). In the morning I took a walk alone around the grounds, it was much larger than I thought, very relaxing...a great garden setting. I can't wait to return for a girls weekend. I did not have time to check out the spa, but next time I will:) I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel Terrific - Saddles OK"
Well located. A series of buildings set around lovely gardens with meandering paths. Swimming pool, fountains, sculptures. A 5 minute drive to the town's center plaza or just a 20 minute stroll. 64 rooms total with maybe 4 to 6 in any given building. Comfortable room. Quiet. Good bathroom with plenty of counter space. Could use a shaving mirror. Large […] closet. No HD on the TV. Wonderful gardens with meandering paths. Swimming pool. Saddles restaurant on the property. Food is good, not spectacular. Service varies. Setting very nice. Library with fireplace, plenty of books and an excellent wine and cheese offering from 5:00 to 6:00. Included. The continental breakfast (included in the price) was good with a large selection of breads, fruits and juices. Just 3 cereals. Plus a bread pudding. Excellent service. Overall a fine and relaxing three days even if a little pricy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice getaway without kids!"
Loved this cottage style hotel very close to downtown Sonoma square! Loved the complimentary happy hour & morning breakfast. Great staff with great dinner recommendation & advice. The saddles restaurant & bar were a nice addition to location. We had dinner downtown both nights & really enjoyed our dinners. We drove north through wine country & this […] was a great location & retreat to come back to. Loved Coppola winery & had a great lunch at dry creek general store. Great sandwiches! We would come back! Thanks Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The McAurthur Hotel was really nice. We had a suite that was upgraded when we got there (non peak). The room was beautifully decorated and comfortable. It had a nice porch area, large bathroom, sitting area with retractable lounge chairs and fireplace. It was very clean as well. The staff was great. Always willing to help. The location was great […] as well. We did have a car but I think the center of town is in walking distance and must be visited especially the Girl and the Fig for an apetizer or any of the cool stores for shopping. Not to mention how close it is to the wineries. The hotel also had awesome grounds with plants and sculptures making a stroll through them very entertaining. The continental breakfast that came with the room had more than we needed and we are good eaters. Parking was right in front of our room making in and out easy. All in all a great experience and we would definitely will go back. It is more than I usually pay for a hotel but I think it was a very good value for what we paid and I was more than satisfied.

"Price not worth the stay"
After a day of wine tasting, we arrived around dinner and checked in. Our check in was cookie cutter, nothing too friendly or welcoming, but the lobby smelled delicious, and they were helpful in suggesting a dinner location. Champagne arrived as we stepped in our room which made for a nice nightcap after our delicious meal. The property has lots of […] charm and the grounds are very lush and green. Our room was nice, the bed was comfy, but I was a bit surprised that there was no bathtub. Although the hot tub/pool was close to our room, it could use a little paint/maintenance and held me back from taking a dip. What surprised me the most was the noise of the room above. Not pleasant. The breakfast included in the morning was nothing to brag about, although we did choose not to pay any extra for additional items. Overall, because our main purpose for our visit was touring wine country we did not spend much time at the hotel which included with the other factors, did not meet our expectations according to the price paid. Next time we will stay somewhere else and spend more of our lodging fees on wine =) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Nothing luxurious about this hotel. The pool is old. There is not bar service at the pool. Not worth the money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would definitely go back"
The hotel surpassed our expectations. The staff was very attentive and friendly. We walked to the Sonoma square several times (<20 min walk) and also biked around the surrounding neighborhood. We stayed in the Manor House so it was a modest room, but very well appointed and extremely quiet. We enjoyed the gardens, pool, and spa services. In hindsight, […] i'm glad it was several blocks from the square because it was much less congested in a quiet neighborhood. The homes nearby were immaculately maintained. The evening wine tastings were nice too. The hot tub was "so-so", but overall, our accomodations and service couldn't have been better. We will definitely go back in the future.
