We stayed there for almost a week and found this hotel to provide customer service beyond our expectations. I had a feeling this would be a great place when I called to make reservations and found the hotel person to be very friendly and willing to work with me on arrangements. The front desk people were very friendly and were... More

After staying at the La Rose in Santa Rosa often and for many years, I think we have had our last night there. I still love the vintage, intimacy and charm, but it has been let go to the point of no return. It needs everything renewed to be brought back to some degree of it's true potential. I am... More

Please know that Historic Hotel La Rose works very hard to stay up to date and uphold our historic values. The furniture in our guest rooms are mostly antiques and have worn over the years with that said repairs are an ongoing task. We value your opions and take that all very seriously.

My Wine Country travel group enjoys staying at quaint hotels and B&Bs. We don't expect luxury or posh surroundings. We like the feel of yesteryear. This turn-of-the-century charming old hotel fit the bill. I share a room with a fellow traveler and we have spanned the gambit; everything from together in a king to more room than we need. Hotel...

With only 48 guest rooms Historic Hotel La Rose not only handles your rooming needs but works hard to give our guest (extended family) a home away from home. Being a small historic property we offer a one on one guest experience from check in to check out. More

We stayed here two nights and specifically requested the newer carriage house. We liked our large quiet room and the high speed Internet access was a real plus. We also enjoyed the location of the hotel in the historic Railroad Square and its proximity to downtown Santa Rosa. Some dislikes: shower water pressure was weak, pillows were not comfortable. It...

First came here on business in August 2011' came back in December, 2011 and never thought to stay anywhere else. 100 year old restored jewel in the historic railroad depot district of Sonoma county's largest city. There are two buildings, the main and the carriage house. Never stay in the main building because the carriage house is so wonderful. Huge... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night while attending our friend's wedding nearby. The hotel was lovely, with lots of character. We arrived at 4pm, checked in (which was very smooth and pleasant), went to the wedding, came home late, and left at 5am. So to be fair, we did not really interact much with the staff. However,...

As General Manager of a historic property it is a daily task to keep up with antique furniture and buildings. The entire staff works hard daily to accomplish this task. Our wonderful guest (extended family) keeps us moving forward and motivated to stay ahead of any problems or concerns that arise. More

I've stayed at the Hotel La Rose many times over the past 10 years. I love the staff - especially Janet and Valentin, and the homey comfort of the main building. It's reminiscent of a European hotel, which I enjoy. I dislike over-decorated bed and breakfast places and have had my fill of sterile, hyper-modern establishments. I love the quiet... More

We stayed for the weekend in a "suite" in the Carriage House. Although it was only one room, there was a small balcony and a very large bathroom with a whirlpool tub. The problem was that the door to the balcony would not close and when we came back from lunch on the first day, the wind had blown it... More
