We spent two nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Rooms are compact but efficient. Very nice espresso machine in the room for a great cup in the morning. Shower is a little tight but manageable. Lighting is dim. Our room was on a Main Street and heard trash pick up at 5 each morning. Ask for a room away... More

Stayed at El Dorado Hotel for 3 days and I could have stayed for a week. The rooms were cute and the bed is extremely comfortable, the location is perfect on the square and everyone was really nice and accommodating. Ate at the restaurant the first night which was delicious so I highly recommend trying it at least once but... More

My daughter and I spent two nights at El Dorado during a recent vacation. It was nice to have a balcony, and we loved the sliding barn-type shutter doors leading to the balcony. Upon arriving we discovered a personalized card to welcome us, along with an information sheet on the weather, local events, etc. The downstairs lobby area was beautifully... More

Good accommodations, comfortable. The best location for walking to historical buildings because its right on the town center. The restaurant is a huge attraction with a large variety of breakfast. I highly recommend the Sunday brunch; it is not crowded, a wonderful view and a professional staff.

We worked with El Dorado to book rooms and a rehearsal dinner during our wedding festivities. Charee at EDH couldn't have been more helpful, informative, and friendly. The staff went above and beyond to make us, and our whole family, feel welcomed. We secured a great room rate for the hotel block and were treated to a congratulations gift upon... More

We stayed here for a few days and really liked the room with the private patio. We were able to request a cheese plate from the restaurant and savor our own wine on this patio. Nice respite! We also ate at their restaurant for breakfast and dinner. Very good food! The hotel faces the town center park (and is part... More

Stayed here one night fresh from the east coast. A very nice place but be warned the rooms are largely over, or surrounding a very active restaurant and bar. Had it not been for the fact that by 11pm we were absolutely exhausted, the noise might have been an issue. That said, we didn't hear it. There are rooms that... More

We chose this hotel because of the location. We had arranged for a Trolley wine tour and the pick up spot was just a block away in the town square. We had a nice room separate from the rest of the hotel, right by the pool. The room was clean but small. The bathroom was pretty modern and compared to... More

We ended up at El Dorado by accident (and late planning), but were very happy overall with the location (right on the Sonoma Plaza) and the accomodations. While a trifle expensive, the rooms (very private, off the pool area) were clean and modern and pretty quiet. The Hotel & Kitchen complex is pretty nice overall. We had 1 dinner and... More

We recently stayed at the EL Dorado on a wine tasting trip. Our room was adequate size, clean and reasonably priced. Their restaurant on premises was one of the best in town. Located on the square is convenient for walking around. A great coffee and bread store is located across the square. We will stay there on our next visit.... More
