Thank you very much! Our staff enjoyed seeing you each day while you were here. We miss you and hope you will return. We were not impacted by the earthquake in Napa and our thoughts are with the people who suffered. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. More

Stayed here to enjoy the wine area of Sonoma & because we choose Relais hotels if possible. The staff here are friendly & helpful, happy to help. Our front facing room on 3rd floor was comfortable, with lovely linens & towels,nice furniture with a couple of chairs which were probably antique, but had seen better days to be honest. The... More

Everything about the Hotel Les Mars is done to perfection. The service (and with a no-tipping policy!) is extraordinary. Our room was large, bright and beautiful. The breakfast was delicious, and the location on a side street in the heart of Healdsburg can't be beat. Attached restaurant, Chalkboard, has wonderful local wines and creative small plates.

We have traveled a lot and stay at lovely places. Les Mars takes the cake!!! The room was one of the nicest that we have stayed in. Canopy bed, fireplace and wine. The staff are very helpful and directed us to many fine restaurants and wineries

THIS is how movie stars travel! Small hotel with a very personal touch. The manager assisted us with our bags both at check in and check out. The rooms are more like suites with chaise lounge, fireplace, light fixture with flickering flame-like bulbs, fresh roses in the plush bathroom, real silver and antiques in the room. Turn down service at... More

The elegance of this Healdsburg gem hits you the moment you walk through the door. Discretely located next to the awe & appetite-inspiring Shed, the only thing nicer than the property are the people working here. A real treat that easily deserves the adjective "magnificent."

I cannot say enough great things about Hotel les Mars! It was our first trip to wine country and they were all so helpful when it came to planning our days of visiting wineries. They have some great suggestions and most places waive the tasting fee if you tell them you are staying here. The breakfast delivered to your room... More

Hands down lovely. We went on a whim for Mother's day and I am so thankful. The hotel is small (maybe 15 rooms), on the main square in Healdsburg, and rooms are welcoming, clean and big. Service was great and the fee included a fabulous breakfast in the morning. Only small dislike was the skim milk provided with coffee early... More

We paid top dollar for this room. It was a nice size with vaulted ceiling and great bathroom. There were repairs that needed to be done to the curtains (hanging loose, bidet not working, jacuzzi came on with loud jets at 7:11 a.m. each day!) When we opened the window and the air conditioning/solar unit across the street roared constantly.... More

Les Mars was a wonderful and memorable experience. The property was gorgeous and the service second to none! When we arrived we were taken back by the beauty of this hotel only to be surprised by how wonderfully we were treated. We had a bottle of wine waiting in our luxurious room; we had beautiful breakfasts delivered to our room... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Opened in May 2005 and created by the Mars family, Hotel Les Mars brings the elegance and unobtrusive service of the finest European family hotels to Northern California. The Mars family follows the philosophy that patrons should be treated more like visiting friends than guests, and upon entering the lobby, visitors are welcomed to the warm smiles of the hotel staff, unique 17th and 18th century antiques, and a comfort found only at the home of a very good friend.Hotel Les Mars represents a unique family project, a labor of love, and a new dimension of sophisticated, luxury lodging in wine country. Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report, the definitive guide to luxury travel, commented that "Les Mars now sets the standard for luxury accommodations in Sonoma." ... more   less
