“Pretty nice.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Very nice, but they didn't have any cookies w/o nuts. Bummer. Anyway, the best hotel in RoPa. The bar is pretty good, too, so it's a good thing that you can walk back to the hotel. I vaguley remember stubling across the golf course...

Dear Sonomamon,
Alas, but the Signature Doubletree Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie is just that. I wish we had another type without walnuts we could have offered you! However, we’re happy to hear that you enjoyed our bar and golf course location. :) Thank you so much for visiting and we hope to see you again soon!

This truly lovely hotel is a great place to stay for any activity around Santa Rosa and area.
Lobby is spacious and desk staff prompt and courteous.
-The rooms are of a generous size and we unexpectedly had a balcony.
- try the hot tub, but request robes which they will bring. They even have a mechanical lowering chair to lower persons with disabilities into it. New to me- amazing.
- restaurants seem good and attractively designed. Business centre is in a huge library area , complete with billiards if you want.
- they were so accommodating because I needed my luggage weighed and they did so with a smile.
-luxurious and so worth it!

We were headed up north and wanted to break up the trip without breaking our budget. We booked online ,paid in full ,no refunds: $109. We were so very surprised and pleased when we arrived. It was so impressive in size and appearance that my husband said" "are your sure we are at the right hotel?"
I specifically looked for a place not on hi way 101, but close access because we are light sleepers. The place is beautiful, well appointed and QUIET! I was amazed that it looked so new for an older built building-well maintained. I also didn't expect a full dining room or so many amenities for that price either. The bed was very comfy and with a full tub a hot bath was great after a 6 hour car ride.
Staff were very professional as well.Highly recommend this lovely Hilton.
Almost didn't want to continue up north- just sty in the area at the hotel☺☺

Dear Julia S,
How nice to be the pleasant surprise at the end of your day! You’re very right – our hotel has been here for many years, but we have done our best to keep renovations current and our rooms comfortable. To know that we made such a good impression on such short notice tells us that we are doing things right, and we want to continue to do so. Thank you so much for your glowing review, and please think of us again if you ever return to the area! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

My wife and I stayed here during a short trip up to wine country. It's easy access from the 101 highway made it a great base for day trips around wine country, and it's not as expensive as staying in the heart of Sonoma or Napa.

The room was up to par with the price. There's a nice pool/courtyard for families or summer lounging. There's a golf course right there, plenty of room for a jog outside and a decent work out room if you prefer to stay inside. It was also a good place to host an event with plenty of ballroom space.

It's not a luxury spot by any means, but if you'd prefer to stay on the cheaper side for wine country instead of having all the bells and whistles, this hotel is not a bad way to go.

Room Tip: Ask for a room closer to the lobby if you don't have luggage with wheels as some rooms are quite...

Dear benhold09,
That’s the thing about “destination” hotels – they tend to be very expensive. In my personal experience, looking a little bit outside of the destination will sometimes find you in a better location with a better price. We’re glad we could offer that for you! Nearly any place that you’d like to visit in Sonoma County is within a 35 minute drive from our location. If you’d like to visit us again – we’ll be offering a bit more for our peak season in the way of Wine Country amenities to our guests. Complimentary Wine Tasting on Friday Nights will start on April 1st, and we’re pleased to say that we’ll also be hosting a Happy Hour starting on that date as well! We hope you’ll visit again soon!

We stayed here because we were spending the weekend wine tasting in the Sonoma area and nothing else was available that weekend under $300 or $400 dollars.

When we arrived there was no bellman, no carts, no nothing out front. Yes, the parking was free, but we had quite a hike with our bags from the parking lot since there is only the front entrance through which you can enter. The place was noisy. There were people running up and down the halls. There were very loud parties going on in two rooms on our hallway. Luckily our room was further away from them.

It is a fine place to stay if you just need to crash for the night, (bring earplugs) but I would never make this a destination hotel. There are plenty of other places nearby that are much better. For the price, I expected more. This is not a hotel, hotel implies service, this place had next to none.

The hotel is very easy to access of 101 and was very clean and comfortable and beautifully green. The breakfast buffett was very satisfying and had lots of food to choose from. I did have a small issue at check-in where an online offer I booked did not seem to show up on Doubletree's side. After speaking with the person at the front desk he contacted the manager who over compensated me for the mix-up. i was very impressed at their high level of customer service and willingness to make their customers happy. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: There is a pool in the courtyard and sound from the pool area can travel up to the rooms. If you don...

They had a lot of positives that outweigh the negatives. Let's start with positive:

1) free parking 2) warm cookies at check in 3) huge beautiful lobby with working fireplace, pool table, computers with free printing and a bar open on weekends 4) you can get free wi-fi in your room if you ask for a promotional code from the front desk, that was very helpful! 5) beautiful courtyard with hot tub and pool 6) fitness center with free ear buds 7) the rooms without a balcony were HUGE and bigger than the ones with a balcony with two sinks 8) comfy bed and pillows

Overall, I enjoyed my weekday stay here. I went for February break to visit family and it was very quiet. Being from New England, we thought it was warm enough to swim, but stayed mostly in the hot tub. The front desk happily gave us toothbrushes and toothpaste when I asked for them. I even asked to change rooms one night so we could be closer to the elevator (it was a little bit of a walk).

The negative is that their hotel was undergoing MAJOR constructions on the first floor and some on the second that some parts were blocked off and I would walk into it without knowing. And I heard noisy drilling at 6am in the morning. Wish they would have warned me.

There are cafes, fast food places nearby that you can drive to if you don't want to eat at their expensive restaurant, but it is conveniently inside the hotel.
