MacArthur Place won’t disappoint. It’s luxury without being stuffy. Our room was beautifully appointed with all the comforts of home. We enjoyed the fireplace in the room. The bar/lounge has a really swanky vibe and excellent cocktails. I can’t wait to go back!!!

My wife and I recently celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary at MacArthur Place and were blown away by the property! The staff are some of the nicest and friendliest I have come across in all my travels. We stayed in room 27 and it was fantastic. It had a big patio outside and an outdoor shower! The bed was very comfortable and there were a bunch of items in the room that came free of charge! We both had massages and they were fantastic. Top 5 and I have had a lot of massages in my time. We unfortunately did not eat at Layla on this trip but I have in the past and it was really good. We ate out for each meal as we wanted to try a bunch of restaurants we had heard we need to check out as we live 45 minutes away from Sonoma. We did have a glass or two at the bar of Layla and the staff there were fantastic. Again...I would highly suggest MacArthur Place!

LOVED LOVED LOVED this property. It’s beautiful, tranquil and in easy walking walking distance of Sonoma Plaza. Food on property was lovely too! Of note, there is a Dyson hairdryer in the room!!!! Our only issue, which we never reported, was that the Wi-Fi was pretty awful. Thankfully we were on vacation so it didn’t matter too much!

Dear JordanaS1000, Thank you for the kind and enthusiastic review! We are absolutely delighted that had a wonderful stay and enjoyed our amenities and proximity to the Plaza. We sincerely apologize for the spotty internet during your stay. It is usually very fast and reliable, but we had a minor outage that cause some disruptions during that time. Thank you for your understanding, and hopefully it encouraged you to unplug that much more :) We hope to welcome back to MacArthur Place in the near future! Best, Dare

What a wonderful experience!!! My husband and I celebrated our 15th anniversary here. It couldn’t have been more perfect. We were well greeted upon arrival, our luggage taken to our room, & had chilled champagne waiting on us in our room! The room itself was a dream. We stayed in the standard suite with a king bed & fireplace. Decorated so beautifully! My favorite features were the heated bathroom floors, the spacious shower with 2 shower heads, & the smart lights! The scenery around the property & fire pits scattered throughout are also something to see. Just stunning. I would highly recommend staying here! Layla was wonderful for breakfast too!

We hosted our annual offsite here for a team of 15 and it was perfect. Amazing rooms, food, meeting rooms etc. Their sales team was also super great to work with as we planned the event. We had meals onsite at their Layla Restaurant both in a private room and on their patio and enjoyed both.

We went to Sonoma for our anniversary and stayed (for the second time) at MacArthur Place. The staff is warm, welcoming and helpful, our room had it's own balcony and was very comfortable and the location was great (we walked to downtown, it's that close). We enjoyed the pool, the e-bikes, and the lovely gardens. It's not inexpensive but it's a lovely place for a splurge on a special occasion.

A beautiful hotel with exceptional service and great restaurant. The room was beautiful and had up to date technology. The bathroom was very roomy and the lighting was great! The only drawback was the gym. Only one treadmill and that is problematic. But overall a wonderful place. We will go back.

Everything about MacArthur was superior from the moment we checked in. Staff was friendly, knowledgeable about the area and very helpful if we had any questions. Rooms were impeccable. Easy to access Uber to and from SFO, make reservation a day before you are scheduled to leave. We loved it here and would definitely stay again.
