I didn't want to like this place because we are not boutique hotel people (i.e. my husband doesn't wear skinny jeans & i don't have a flowy scarf perpetually hanging from my neck with our smart phones plastered to our hands) - but I was quickly won over. It was the perfect mix of charming and contemporary in a clean design kind of way. The fireplace crackling every night, the easy and friendly young staff - from the valet to the bartender and even the ladies serving the free breakfast - all had a warm smile on their face and were very approachable, making the place seem easy breezy. It is right on the square in Healdsburg, offering many things to do within walking distance that added to the charm of the area. Were you wanting a home base to not be in the car for an afternoon every 3rd business is at tasting room which is all concentrated on the main plaza that HH sits on. Lots of chic shops and chic California cuisine restaurants. The hotel grounds are small but just lovely enough to feel quaint, with discreet seating all over the lawn, patio, courtyard and inside near the fireplace. The room rate included breakfast (shockingly good) and snacks & beverages in your room. Most of the clientele was older, quiet, relaxed. This place clearly caters to the upper crust of the laid back sonoma wine country scene.
