My daughter suggested we dine at The Eldorado Kitchen based on her previous dining experience! Glad we had brunch, it was fantastic! Service was good, entrees perfectly prepared and the ambience excellent. We had the Bacon Pizza, which was very tasty, the Salmon, and the waffles. I wanted to try the chicken tortilla soup, as a starter and is was ok, not great. The non alcoholic drinks were delicious too, the No Jito was perfect! We will definitely be back when in Sonoma!
We come to Sonoma 4 or 5 times a year from Pacifica. Just over an hour away. Usually stay at best western. This was our first time staying at elmdorado. We have eaten and had drinks there many times though. Great time and we will be back. Only disappointing thing was pool wasn’t open but we knew this before we booked.
My wife and I had one of the most delicious meals we have every enjoyed at the kitchen of the El Dorado. Service of course was top notch; the wine list was extensive and a good variety. The meal however was out of this world. I had the petaluma chicken breast, and my wife had the salmon. Chef's kiss on both of these entrees. We will be back with friends when we return in the fall.
I love the Lodge at Sonoma Resort just off the square .. Stayed many times ..but what a treat to have a balcony, Spanish tile..beautifully appointed room right on the square.. not at all chain feeling, just quaint old building and wonderful location on square . Reminded me of Ojai valley Inn which is a favorite. Lovely staff, dining, meeting rooms , easy to park In front and access everything you want in sonoma. Will be back ! Thank you
Amazing!! Front desk person Amanda gave us a champagne welcome. The room was lovely. Balcony overlooking the wine bar across the street. The pool was heated and perfect. And the restaurant for breakfast was lovely. Will go back and recommend to anyone looking for a unique special place.
We spent four nights in Sonoma for a family reunion. The hotel was very comfortable and had a great, convenient location. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay there again.
Lovely restaurant BUT, we have a person with dietary restrictions. The restaurant could not accommodate a “plain” meal request. Would not substitute a buttered pasta for plain pasta. Suggested broccoli for vegetable and gave us a mixture of corn and other assorted vegetables …none of which were even in the original suggestion. The buttered pasta we received was heavy and over buttered!!! NOT what can be tolerated on this diet. Why they couldn’t just give us plain fettuccine, I’ll never know!
Checked into this hotel for the first time for a three-day wedding weekend in Sonoma. At check-in, a welcome glass of champaign was preceded by a warm smile, always the nicest way to start a mini vacation. Got room 4, smallish but with a large balcony overlooking the square. Complimentary coffee and tea in the morning from 6 to 11 am. Ice water available all day and night. Bikes also available for easy pedaling around this quaint (and relatively flat) paradise. The hotel's restaurant is delicious, with a lovely patio for lunch and maybe a warm night and a beautiful inside dining room where I recommend getting a table on the periphery, preferably by the window. The wait staff and hostesses were warm, personable, helpful, seeming to like each other and the menu. The entire staff was great. The women of the cleaning staff who showed up at 6:30 to start their day's work were also very friendly, speaking both Spanish and English and chatting among each other and sharing jokes and laughter before they buckled down to a long, hard day. Basically, this was a bright, clean, quality hotel. Thin walls, soft, squishy pillows are the only drawbacks, but other little details like cold bottled water, a nice variety of snacks in the room more than make up for this, as does proximity to excellent local restaurants (The Girl and The Fig, the Basque Bakery where you must try the raisin-apple muffins - OMG - and so on) ... enjoy the search for for your own favorites, this beautiful, comfortable hotel with the friendly staff will be waiting for you.…
We stayed at this hotel last minute when we had to leave another hotel in Sonoma because of various issues. The El Dorado was able to find a room for us last minute and the service was impeccable. Great experience at check in and leaving. The room itself was nice but a bit small, more of a European style room. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The location of the hotel could not be better as you are literally just a few steps away from a ton of restaurants and shops. My one complaint is the lack of an elevator. This is a historic building so it is a bit of a pain taking your luggage up but the staff could not be nicer or more helpful.
For the rate I paid, I definitely expected better. We booked a king room with an outdoor patio, and what we got was an ADA accessible room right next to the parking lot that had to be the loudest room we've ever had in all our years of traveling. The patio was useless because you would've had to listen to cars pulling in & out of the parking lot, deliveries going back & forth, gates banging, and other crazy noises. The walls were so thin that we actually heard the guest snoring in the room next door! The worst part was the thunderous noise we heard very early in the morning: we really thought there was an earthquake, but as far as we could tell, it was the garbage truck that sounded like it was literally on top of us. Fortunately, we were only staying one night, and I can't remember the last time we were so eager to check out. The location was great, but otherwise, definitely think twice about staying here…
