It's a lovely hotel in many ways. But our experienced was marred by an external air-conditioner compressor which was located just below our room (we were in in #18 - AVOID!), which woke us up repeatedly through the night. We were too tired and discombobulated to want to face moving rooms in the middle of the night (we were only... More

We came here for a quick getaway and it was our first time staying at the hotel. The rooms are tidy and the staff is so nice and courteous. We wanted to order room service right before the kitchen closed and they went out of their way to make sure our order was put in! The food is some of... More

The location is great. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. Lots of noise from the restaurant in the room. No elevator so had to carry bags up the stairs. No liquid soap in the shower. Staff did not differentiate between someone eating at the restaurant and a hotel guest. Would not stay at this hotel again.

Stayed at the El Dorado for 2 nights in Mid October. Very nice hotel for the value and very comfortable beds. The restaurant is great with a nice cocktail and wine list. The El Dorado is right in the Sonoma Town square so walking to breakfast, lunch, dinner is a breeze. I felt very pleased with the value for the... More

The location of the hotel right on the plaza was perfect for walking around to get a bite to eat or just explore. We happened to stay on a Tuesday night, which meant the Farmer's Market took over the center of town. You can bring your own wine and enjoy the sights and sounds just a short walk away, so... More

Stayed in one of the rooms near the pool and enjoyed the quiet patio and easy access to parking lot. Parking lot is small and we had to park on street one day but it is such a great location that you don't need to drive other than going to wineries. Great food and service. Apparently a very popular place... More

The El Dorado Kitchen was a charming stop on a busy day full of touring Sonoma. The charcuterie was delicious and truffle oil fries were yummy. A nice stop for the afternoon right off the town square.

Hotels can be hard to come by in Sonoma. We happened to get a room here for a night. I really liked it. The rooms are small, but nice. Has good tv, free internet, chilled water and good AC. Staff is nice. Food down stairs was is very good. All that and you are right in the heart of Sonoma... More
