On a prior trip on the recommendation of a business associate, we detoured to spend a few hours in Healdsburg. We really enjoyed the downtown area, and vowed to return. We had that opportunity in January and made the most of our three days and two nights by staying at Hotel Les Mars. We could not have been happier with...

This is one of the most peaceful hotels - rooms are well appointed, luxurious, very private and quiet. It feels like a French chateau, yet is in the heart of Healdsburg next door to a variety of restaurants, bars, etc. Service is impeccable as well. Perfect as a romantic getaway for a couple. Highly recommend this boutique hotel if you...

Thank you! Yes, with only 16 well appointed rooms we are always a fairly peaceful hotel. We are still in downtown Healdsburg so there are some things we can't escape but with a fireplace, the rain pattering on the roof and streets, this is one of my favorite times of the year. The value is better now than at any...

What a delightful find in little old Healdsburg. One of the nicest rooms we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed in some great places. Located very close to the square in Healdsburg and its many galleries and restaurants, you can park your car (free, but on the street) and leave it.

Thank you for the wonderful comment about our rooms. We do feel that we offer large rooms and we've taken care to make sure that they are appointed with unqiue furnishings. Next time, allow us to valet your car for you!

Hands down, this is the best place we have stayed in either Napa or Sonoma over the years! Comfort and service are their top priority! The beds were amazing, the coffee strong yet tasty, the rooms are a great size and well appointed and all of the employees of the hotel are focused on making sure your visit is exquisite....

We visited Healdsburg last week for a couple days and had the luxury of staying at HLM. What an experience! Everything from the room details, to the service on site, to the wine tour they set up and the restaurants they helped us choose. Everything truly was perfect. Matt and Catrice, thank you! Our room was so cute and comfortable...

This is a very charming, European-style boutique hotel right in the center of Healdsburg. The plastered walls and marble desk make the simple but beautiful lobby special. They keep the staff small but very attentive. We stayed 3 nights in a 3rd floor king room with a gorgeous canopy bed and vaulted ceilings. I loved that the windows opened and...

We come to Healdsburg every year and love it. We usually stay at other properties on the Square. We are so happy that we stayed at Les Mars. The rooms, the customer service, the food, evening wine tastings were spectacular. Catrice - the assistant manager - and Matt a gentleman from the Four Seasons took amazing care of us!!

The hotel is straight out of the European tradition. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The hotel staff provided dinner and wine tasting reservations, information about the area and driving instructions. All recommendations were excellent and we received special treatment as guests of the hotel. The accommodations were very traditional and luxurious. This property deserves its five star...

Can not say enough nice things about the staff. The rooms and facilities are good but in need of some TLC, especially at the prices you pay. Great location, but there are no bad locations in center of Healdsburg.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Opened in May 2005 and created by the Mars family, Hotel Les Mars brings the elegance and unobtrusive service of the finest European family hotels to Northern California. The Mars family follows the philosophy that patrons should be treated more like visiting friends than guests, and upon entering the lobby, visitors are welcomed to the warm smiles of the hotel staff, unique 17th and 18th century antiques, and a comfort found only at the home of a very good friend.Hotel Les Mars represents a unique family project, a labor of love, and a new dimension of sophisticated, luxury lodging in wine country. Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report, the definitive guide to luxury travel, commented that "Les Mars now sets the standard for luxury accommodations in Sonoma." ... more   less
