We stayed at Hotel La Rose from June 23 - 28th 2012. Santa Rosa is a great base camp for touring Sonoma and Napa wine countries. The hotel is historic and very central to downtown Santa Rosa. Great restaurants and bars are within walking distance of this hotel. Our room was dark but quiet and clean. The bathroom was huge, bright, and full of character with an old fashioned feel. We loved the feather bed and the free wifi, even though it didn't work too well in our room. The hotel is allegedly haunted, which adds a nice mystic to the hotel! Supposedly there was a family staying in room 42 and the family was killed by bandits. The ghost of the little boy and maybe his sister, who were killed in the murders, rides the elevator up and down and climbs the stairs at night looking for their parents. I have no verification that this is true but the story is very interesting!! There is a video on YouTube of a Halloween seance at the hotel in room 42! Free parking is across the street in a shared parking lot next to an awesome coffee shop. The hotel restaurant was waiting for a liquor license when we were there and never seemed to be busy. All in all a nice hotel but is lacking 5 stars due to the darkness of the room, the weak wifi, and the restaurant.
