We recently stayed at a poolside room. The hotel is quaint and charming. It is located right on Sonoma Square, which was awesome. It was so easy to pop over to the various wine rooms for impromptu tastings. We dined at the hotel restaurant for my husband's birthday. We enjoyed the food and our waiter was a really nice guy....

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful dinner here - one of our favorite nice dinners ever! Our waiter, Israel, was really awesome - he took time to talk with us and was very friendly and helpful. The food was outstanding. I had the King Salmon, which was cooked to perfection and came on a delicious bed of corn, bacon,... More

My husband, daughter and i ate at El Dorado Kitchen last night. We ate in the small front area since our concierge made the reservations at the last minute; we didn't get a chance to see the larger dining room. The food was great, but what made the meal wonderful was our waiter. He was extremely knowledgable about the food... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. We had a great time. The location was perfect right on the square. The hotel was VERY clean. Our room was in the back which was a modular room. We had no in room coffee or complimentary coffee that some of the previous posters mentioned nor did we have filtered water.... More

This is my fourth stay at this terrific hotel. I first visited over seven years ago, and I am sad to report that the price has nearly doubled since then for a June weekend night. That is where my complaining ends. The complimentary coffee is a great way to start the day. You can enjoy breakfast at the hotel's restaurant... More

My Husband and I stayed here for a night recently on a quick visit to the Sonoma Valley. We loved the Sonoma area and this hotel. The hotel is perfectly located in the town centre and has free parking on site. The hotel is a historic building with character which we really appreciated. Our bed was really comfortable, we had...

Feel like you are in a getaway in a lovely villa in Italy or Mexico. Wonderful rooms and great place to dine and enjoy cocktails in the beautiful garden year around. Park your car for the weekend and leave it then walk around exploring Sonoma's wonderful square.

We only stayed there 1 night but it was great. Comfortable bed, great atmosphere, really comfortable beds/lounge chairs by the pool. Looking forward to my next stay in Sonoma and have already booked my room at The Eldorado!

We were in the area for a week on business with my daughter, her infant son and husband. We had two rooms for 3 nights here. I chose this hotel for us because of the location; we would be able to walk to restaurants and shops during the day while the guys were working in nearby Petaluma. Our rooms were... More

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
