El Dorado Hotel, Sonoma
Great room and dinner at the El Dorado
The El Dorado Hotel is a beautiful modern/traditional hotel with a superb location directly overlooking the NW corner of Sonoma Square. Very comfortable bed, plantation shuttered windows and modern glass enclosed shower. We also had a wonderful dinner at the El Dorado's restaurant with attentive service and a selection of creative entrees. Our stay was a perfect ending to a day of visiting Sonoma area wineries.

Very Good8.0
Hotel is good. Sonoma is a great little town and lots to do. Restaurant was disappointing due to the fact that a hair was in one of our meals. A manager never came to table to talk to us and wait staff removed that dish from the bill. Bit disappointing that a manager did not recognize the issue. We could have made a bigger deal but just wanted to leave -- having loss our appetite.

Lovely stay
The hotel is lovely, right on the square in Sonoma. The rooms are very nice. There is no elevator but we always had help with our luggage on the stairs. We enjoyed the having a refrigerator, corkscrew and wine glasses in the room! The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The only thing keeping me from giving it all 5's was the fact that we did not find out they were re-roofing during our stay until we arrived. We had rented a room with a balcony so we could sit out and enjoy coffee and wine. The manager was understanding and worked with us to ensure we were compensated for the disruption the roofing caused during our stay. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Great experience!
Hotel is perfectly located on the square accessible to the wine tour pickups, shops and restaurants. Espresso in room and coffee in the open area is a great feature. Rooms are quaint but functional so do seem a little pricey. Restaurant has a great selection of offerings too.

Nice Hotel
Fun weekend and loved the hotel. Do think it is overpriced for what you get though. Room was small
