“Exceptional service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

This was our third visit. As always, exceptional service! Angel is the best.... A true gem. He makes sure all our needs are met. Love this location! Restaurants just around the corner... Don't miss girl and the fig and cafe la haye. I can certainly recommend wineries to visit.. This trip we had 13 in four days to Cover. Weather cooperated. Wine, great food, family and California weather... What else is there?

Ledson Hotel is an absolute favorite of ours. We really appreciate Michele and Justin. Every time we check in we are totally pampered. Angel is outstanding and always makes our room so beautiful. We love spending special occasions with our Ledson Family. Thank you, Steve Ledson, for building such a wonderful hotel.

We really enjoyed our dinner although they could use slightly larger tables. The wait staff was very helpful. We were unsure what wine to order so our server brought us tastings of the 3 wines we were trying to decide between. To me that is service above and beyond what you may get elsewhere.

My husband & I just spent three nights at the Ledson Hotel for our 20th anniversary and we would definitely go back! It's great that's it located right on the square in Sonoma and that there are shops, restaurants & tasting rooms within walking distance. Our room was clean, quiet and beautiful!

I would like to mention that Michelle went above & beyond to help me with my food allergy issues. I cannot eat gluten or dairy, and she had the chef make me a frittata without those items so that I could enjoy breakfast with my husband. Thank you to Michelle and the chef!

Suspend disbelief...you are not in a mini French Chateau, but rather California Wine Country on the Sonoma Square. The Ledson Hotel is an anachronism to say the least, but a gorgeous one. Six rooms and a lovely dining room and outdoor cafe. The hotel is affiliated with the Ledson Winery and one is (strongly )encouraged to participate in a free wine tasting on premises and or a private tasting at the winery, about half an hour away. We particiapted in the onsite wine tasting with Justin which was informative and the wine was great. The Wine Club does get mentioned by each and every staff member - club members do earn points and discounts on wine purchases and accommodations which is no doubt a good deal for return visitors and wine buffs who are interesting in spending about $1000 annually on shipments from the club.
The rooms and common areas miss no expense as far as marble fireplace surrounds, tub and shower. Luxurious European style linens, towels and robes. Inlaid wooden floors and crown moldings are amazing - apparently it took over three years to build and craft the small hotel.
The staff is lovely, but a bit invisible. Angel was apparently involved in the construction and now serves as housekeeper, handyman and general welcoming committee. Michelle Ledson is very nice and provides good advice about where to go and what to do ...and the wine club and their winery tours.
Breakfast was fine...the first morning, repeated day two and day three!?! Weird.... baked eggs with veggies, fruit, granola and yoghurt. Perhaps all the lean and fit Californians do not eat toast, muffins or croissants - however there is a lovely French/Basque bakery just down the block. Wondered if the warmish egg dish was baked once a week and nuked every morning (and then covered with a napkin to sit until someone decided to give it a try)???

The rooms are exquisite. With only 6, there is an obvious need to book ahead, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff is attentive.
Other review that considers the breakfast to be limited is certainly accurate -- don't stay here for the breakfast! We did find the view, bed, furnishings to be excellent, competing with some of the wonderful hotels we have visited in Paris, London, Chicago & NY.
Definitely do the private tour of the Ledson Winery, as that elevates the experience to truly unique and undoubtedly positively biases your opinion, but it is part of what you pay for!

Room Tip: Views of the square!
