“Great location and room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We arrived to check in but had a bit of difficulty figuring out where we should go since there is no lobby. The bartender saw we appeared lost and helped us out. Angel took care of our luggage and I can't say enough about Angel. He is a jack of all trades in the hotel and took excellent care of us. Our room looked out over the square and was very nice. The bathroom was very large but the jetted tub was in the main room. The fireplace was gas and controlled by thermostat so would turn off if it got too hot in the room. The balcony is pretty tiny but will accommodate 2 people. Overall the room gets a thumbs up from us.
Breakfast comes with the room and may be served either in the room or downstairs in the restaurant area and is served from 8:30 to 10:30. We had to leave on the second morning to catch a flight so were unable to have breakfast. The first morning I called Angel to find out where it was going to be served and he told me downstairs and he was running a few minutes early so we should come down early. We did this but another employee seemed a bit put out that we were down early and commented that breakfast didn't start until 8:30.
We booked the room months early and credit cards are charged at booking. If you are a club member then you get points for your stay plus a 5% discount. We did some tastings at the bar and decided we'd join the club. I assumed our stay would be able to get points and the 5% discount applied to the room but I was wrong. The rationale given was the room was already paid for therefore it didn't count. I didn't find this rationale compelling and my wife and I debated whether or not we would join the club over this issue. We scheduled a private tasting at the Ledson Castle and were completely won over by the young lady that conducted the tasting. She was the deciding factor on joining the club. The wines were excellent by the way.
The hotel gets 4 stars from us instead of 5 for two reasons. First is the issue of the stay not counting as a club stay. It may be a minor issue but it is a bit of a negative as far as customer service goes. The second issue is we were a bit offended when we were told to come downstairs early for breakfast by one employee and then mildly scolded by another for doing so.
We will stay at the Ledson again if we find ourselves in Sonoma.

Room Tip: There are only 6 rooms. Three overlook the town square and three overlook the back parking lot. Ou...

The rooms were amazing, hot tub, fireplace, beautifully decorated, so romantic. You have to check in at restaurant downstairs which was a little confusing at first, but the customer service was very friendly and helpful. You are right in the square, but our room was quite.

This was our first time staying at Ledson, and it won't be the last. The hotel was immensely charming and beautiful. The service was also impeccable. We were promptly greeted upon arrival and helped upstairs with the bags. The room (Noble) was stunning: the open beams, small balcony overlooking the street, and expansive bathroom made for a very nice stay. We slept well, the room was clean, and we were delighted with the breakfast delivered to our room the next morning. The fruit mix was delicious. If you are looking for a charming stay, look no further than the Ledson.

Room Tip: We were in the Noble room, which had a balcony overlooking the square in Sonoma. Would request this...

Michele, our wonderful proprietor and hostess along with her staff, Angel, Peter, and Justin to name a few, treated us as royalty. They all went above and beyond to see that our stay was a once in a lifetime experience. The hotel offers exquisite dining paired with amazing wines; the rooms are all uniquely appointed with a European flair that rivals any we have seen in out travels throughout Europe. We shall return to this hotel as our favorite destination.

Room Tip: All rooms are uniquely appointed with exceptional taste. Our favorite rooms face the Sonoma Plaza.

My wife Lisa and I spent w nights at the Ledson Hotel and had a wonderful experience! The staff was outstanding and very focused on providing Customer Care. The food that evening was "World Class" as we dined outside enjoying the beautiful weather. The décor of the Noble room was breathtaking!! We really enjoyed our time in Sonoma, visiting Ledson's winery for a private tasting and the finest of accommodations at the Ledson Hotel. Thanks to the staff at Ledson's operations - they excel in the performance of their jobs! Congratulations on having such a dedicated staff and positive business!

This is an amazing hotel with outstanding staff and service. They make you feel right at home.
Only six absolutely exquisite suites, in a new,but period-correct building built in 1999, and located on the floor right above the tasting room and dining room for the Ledson Winery.
The suites look like mid-1800's, and are furnished with nothing but the best of everything, right down to the genuine wool oriental-style rugs, beautiful inlaid floors, and antique-style furnishings. At your option, breakfast is served each day in your room. Great quiche, fruit and fresh-squeezed O.J.!
Because the hotel is on the square in Sonoma, it is surrounded with good restaurants and is within walking distance of several wineries and tasting rooms.
One of the best features is Angel Sotelo, who does a little of everything around the hotel, and is an indispensible part of the day-to-day operations. When we were leaving for home after 4 nights, we had an early-morning flight in San Francisco, and as we were leaving the hotel, Angel met us at the elevator with coffee on a silver tray. He told us, "Our home is your home, and we hope to have you back soon." This was our fourth visit, and we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: All the rooms are different, but each is spectacular!

We stayed at the Ledson Hotel on Sonoma Square for 3 nights on the Memorial Day Weekend. The hotel restaurant, Centre du Vin, has a wonderful menu with appetizers, salads and both small and large plates. The well-stocked bar is very inviting also. The 6 guest rooms, which are all appointed differently, include whirlpool tubs, oversized beds with fine linens, artistic wood floors, bathrooms with marble countertops and double sinks, fireplaces, balconies - everything to make your stay terrific. Add to this, a great hotel staff - Michele, Angel, Jennifer, Katie, Peter, Austin and Merilee and this becomes a place to which you want to return and be pampered. A definite must!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking Sonoma Square are the nicest ones.
