“Sitting in the Plaza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2008

We spent a couple of nights at Healdsburg Inn on the Plaza and staff and service were lovely. The location was right on the main plaza.. we enjoyed sitting in the plaza.. listening to the music in the bandshell and watching the kids and moms hang out. There is lots to see and or just sit and read and relax. The bed at the inn was fabulous and the teddy bear on the bed was cute.. Staff were great.

Great location, with parking around the back. Clean, and exactly as expected. They serve a nice breakfast with several cold choices and several hot ones too. Nice cheese service in the late afternoon. Pricey, but then again this area is.

First time we have been to Healdsburg. We chose this Inn since they had accommodations for our family of 3. Upon arrival the manager greeted me by name and made us instantly welcome. We stayed in room 10 (as prearranged) and were comfortable. Storage was a challenge but sufficient. The walls between rooms are paper thin so if you have a discourteous neighbor, you'll be disturbed. The breakfasts were suburb and the staff equally wonderful.
Dinner reservations made nearby for our first night were reminded by the Inn's staff. When we arrived, complimentary cocktail from the Inn was presented. A nice touch!
Unfortunately it was too warm evenings to light our fireplace. The beds were comfy and linens were wonderful. Towels plentiful when directed to nearby laundry room. If you are not disturbed easily by doors closing and neighbors snoring, this is the place to stay!
Very convenient to all the finest restaurants and shops. Free parking around the corner, 3 hour limit in front of Inn.

Healdsburg Inn on the Plaza is a unique combination of bed and breakfast and small inn. When you arrive you are given a key to the front door of the hotel because the desk is not manned after 8 PM and the front door is locked. Cookies are on the front counter for guests to sample, sodas are free in the refrigerator on the 2nd floor landing. Books and videos are also available in a mini library section of the landing. Coffee and a variety of teas and hot chocoloate were also free. Wine and hors d'oeuvres are available every late afternoon with a representative of the winery there to answer any questions. Breakfast is included in a bright sun room that has a fireplace for winter days.

Our room had a fireplace with marble surround (it was 100 degrees outside) but the air conditioning and ceiling fan worked great. The ceiling of the room was two stories high with a set of translucent windows on one wall that stretched to the ceiling and were covered in filmy white curtains. This was awesome! The room itself was not large, but it had a small hallway that led to a side porch that ran the width of the building that had chairs and tables set up. This was great for sitting with morning coffee before going to breakfast. The bathroom had French doors with curtains between it and the bedroom. Stall shower in glass and gold trim and claw-foot bathtub took up most of the space. This didn't leave much room for a vanity area and there was not one - just a pedestal sink and some shelves, along with a small (8" square top) table. However - it had atmosphere and felt comfy. Terry bathrobes were also available.

The noise level inside left something to be desired. Because it is an older building, there is virtually no soundproofing. Every door closed and every latch locked could be heard. Also, we could hear the occupants of the room next door speaking and anyone who was in the hallway as well.

The included hot breakfast was not up to par. There was an asparagus quiche that was just egg and asparagus - a lot of asparagus - and lukewarm. The hash browns were white - no color or crispness to them. Fresh watermelon slices, peanut butter and mandarin orange slices from a can, mini rolls and bread, granola and oatmeal finished off the spread. A bananas Foster kind of sauce was the sweet. Orange juice (not freshly squeezed) and great coffee, tea, etc. were also available.

The location - right on the plaza - is excellent for exploring Healdsburg and the surrounding locations. The wine tasting was very nice and the people who staff the Inn were very gracious. However, the breakfast was a disappointment. I'm sure that it was just the luck of the draw for the menu that day. The Inn is part of the Four Sisters Inns and it is elegant and relaxed. We just stayed one night because of our travel plans - and it was a splurge. It would be an expensive proposition to make it a base for traveling in the area.

Just spend 2 nights here at the end of APril in room 8. It had a back door balcony that we shared with 2 other rooms. Not a special view, as it overlooked the parking lot, but they did have some shady trees and it felt nice to have the option to step outside for fresh air. Our friends stayed across the hall in room 5 (also on the 2nd floor, but with a picture window of the plaza). Can't say that I would reccomend that for the extra money. I adored the claw footed tub (I felt like Merly Streep in Bridges of Madison County, but that could have also been due to all the wine tastings!) One afternoon, a rep from Kendall Jackson set up the wine tasting with some very nice bottles (ave price $25-75). That was a bonus. Breakfasts are superb, much better than the sister hotel in Yountville.

The location is ideal, right on the plaza among the boutiques and tasting rooms. Hotel Healdsburg looked very trendy and hip, but carried the attitude that so often accompies hotels of this nature. We had one of the most amazing dinners of my life at Cyrus. Service was impeccable and the food was so perfectly prepared and thoughtfully arranged. incredible experience. We even saw a couple get engaged at the table next to us. How's that for good karma?

This was our fifth or sixth Four Sisters stay, having been in Seattle, Sonoma, Yountville, Dana Point in Four Sisters inns already. They are consistent and excellent inns with generally good service and excellent accommodations. The staff is occasionally a bit clueless or non-English speaking but the inns provide a comfortable stay regardless. This particular inn was especially well-run.

The Healdsburg Inn on the Plaza is now at the top of my list of "favorite places to stay!" The Inn is located on the plaza in Healdsburg, which overlooks a beautiful and well-maintained park-like area. There are several community-sponsored activities held in the plaza area throughout the year, so be sure and check in with the innkeeper for updated information.
Healdsburg offers quaint, speciality shops, excellent restaurants, and quality wine tasting in smaller, more personal settings than are usually found in Napa Valley or Sonoma.
The Inn itself is absolutely precious! Spacious, tastefully decorated bedrooms, lovely bathrooms (ours had a claw-footed tub) with fireplaces. We stayed in one of the rooms which overlooks the plaza, which provided a lovely view.
The breakfast served each morning was delicious! Fresh fruit, granola, breads, and muffins -- as well as "home-cooked" selections such as a mouthwatering frittata, a warm and delicious potato casserole, and a tasty egg, bacon and sausage medley.
The innkeepers were warm, friendly, and accomodating -- they even provided a map and recommendations regarding wineries and wine tasting which are "favorites" of the local population.
An exquisite inn, excellent food (and wine) and impecable service. I am looking forward to a return visit!
