As other reviewers have said, some of the hallway carpets need replacing, the design of the car park means you can have a long walk to the rooms (and we found the spaces very narrow), and it's not very obvious how to get to reception. We had two rooms - the rooms on the first floor at the front of the building look out at a small narrow garden with a "view" of a 6foot fence, whilst those at the back look out on a steep ivy covered bank with the upper level of the car park at the top. The traffic noise meant we had to close the windows on the room at the front, whilst an annoying dripping noise from either the pool or a watering system meant we also had to close the windows in our room at the back (room 143).
That said, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the bathrooms spacious, with good coffee machines and free WiFi. There was also good information in the rooms about Sonoma and the local wineries.
The restaurant was also good - the waiting staff were friendly and helpful, and we liked the rack of lamb, cobbler and mango bread pudding. Breakfast was also good, although was slightly more expensive and had less hot options than some of the other places we stayed during a 15 day road trip in California.
We chose the Fountaingrove because it was convenient for highway 101, a reasonably short drive from Napa, convenient for visiting the Russian River, Bodega Bay Area, and also only a short drive to San Francisco. It fulfilled all our requirements, and with a few tweaks could be almost perfect.
