My husband and I took our teenaged daughters to California for a vacation in Sonoma Valley and San Francisco at the end of July. We spent the first three nights of our stay at the Fairmont in Sonoma. It was really just beautiful. Our room was fairly small, but it was impeccably clean and it was very handy to everything we wanted to access at the resort.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. When we first arrived, our room wasn't ready. We would have been perfectly happy to leave our bags at the desk and explore the resort, but the manager generously offered to buy us dinner at their casual restaurant, so we took her up on that.
The food at both restaurants on the property was absolutely wonderful.
The pool is fed by mineral springs. You feel so clean and refreshed coming out of the water; no harsh chlorine smell.
You do have to drive a bit to get to anything. There really isn't much near the hotel. Downtown Sonoma is so pretty and the people there are unbelievably friendly.
The concierge has a number of excellent suggestions for outings. We took a tour of Benziger Winery. Our daughters came with us for that. It's a biodynamic winery, so they were both very interested in learning about that.
We also took a day trip to Healdsburg and to the Armstrong Woods (redwoods). Healdsburg is a lovely town with some very nice restaurants and interesting shops. Armstrong Woods is just something you have to see if you haven't seen redwoods before.
My daughters want to return to the Fairmont in Sonoma after they are both over 21 so that they can do some wine tasting there. I will absolutely make a point of making that trip with them.
