Les Mars is a lovely small hotel. It is certainly a good choice for during the week in Jan. when the rates are substantially reduced, there are very few guests in the hotel, car gets parked right in front of hotel. At rack rates, I think it makes sense to consider several other good choices in Healdsburg. The Estate. King with fireplace, whirlpool tub, high ceilings is an excellent room. Location probably doesn't matter much b/c there is no view. There is construction on the side street but that should be over soon. I'd have some concern about second floor rooms facing front once the restaurant opens.
