We had a very relaxing two-day stay at this inn, situated just outside of downtown Sonoma. The inn is composed of several two-story buildings placed in and around a semiformal garden. There are a total of 64 rooms. The gardens are well kept and presented as a botanical garden (trees and plants are labeled). There are various nooks for relaxing.... More

MacArthur Place is truly amazing, with professional staff, impeccable service, spectacular grounds...and oh yea, the rooms are so beautiful, you may not want to leave them! My sister's maternity leave was just about to end, so we decided to take the baby for a over-night stay in Sonoma. We checked in and did not leave the property until check-out the... More

We spent the weekend here for a destination wedding in the area. The property is exquisitely maintained and a beautiful backdrop to spend a weekend relaxing! The pool area was lovely as well as the gardens and the staff was exemplary. The rooms were tastefully done and the bathrooms were magnificent! My only negatives is that parking is difficult with...

the staff is excellent and helpful. Went out of there way to make sure we where happy. The rooms are very cool, try to get a first floor suite. They have a nice patio in the back, as well as a front porch. Very homey, and comfortable. Great bed. Small spa but again great treatment. Sat by the fire every... More

This is a belated review of MacArthur Place - we stayed in October 2013, not 2014 as the date indicates. But MacArthur Place is unforgettable. We felt as if we were the only guests there, even though it was the height of harvest season. By far our favorite time of day was the evening wine in the library, second to... More

We spent three nights at MacArthur Place and were very sad to leave. Shortly after we made our reservation, my husband called to chat with the owner about our 42nd anniversary we celebrated while there... we were most pleased to be upgraded to what must be the best little cottage ever - Jasmine 38! And we were presented with champagne... More

This was our 2nd trip to Sonoma & our 2nd time staying at MacArthur Place. We spent 7 wonderful nights here in room 42 which is a spa room. The bed is very comfortable, the fireplace perfect for the evening. The outdoor shower & tub were wonderful. This was our 25th anniversary & everyone at MP was superb. Nancy the... More

Have enjoyed our 8 day excursion here at MacArthur Place. The grounds are lovely- whimsical in some places, highly manicured in others; beautiful fountains and sculptures throughout. The continental breakfast is more than adequate in both choices and amounts... Room is large w/ a lovely fireplace, comfortable seating, nice linens and bath condiments... Overall, very nice. We're I to offer... More

We stayed at MacArthur Place on a recent trip to the wine country. We usually stay in Napa but everything there was full so we went with Sonoma. MacArthur Place was a superb choice. The grounds are excellent and the rooms are in separate small buildings throughout the grounds (typically 4 rooms to each building, 2 up and 2 down).... More

I just enjoyed a wonderful getaway to Sonoma and really enjoyed my stay at MacArthur Place. The staff was wonderful and helpful. Special shoutout to Melissa at the front desk, who was beyond accommodating in making our dinner and wine tasting reservations, plus all kinds of great tips for special places I would be interested in seeing.
