“Nice Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2006

We had a very nice time last weekend at the Sheraton Petaluma. It is right next to the freeway, but you can't tell that once you are inside. There is a beautiful view of the marina from part of the property. The beds are VERY comfortable, the bathrooms clean and adequate. Nice linens and decent towels, large TV. The decor was your usual business class hotel generic decor. My only complaint about the room was that the curtains went just below the window and some light got in--I much prefer they go to the floor as i am a very light sleeper!! There is a 7-11 within a 5 minute walk in case you get the late night munchies. Room service is very reasonable--full breakfast was $13 and delicious.
The bar is a nice place to have a drink and meet up with friends. I think they do a free taco bar during happy hour. I didn't agree that the pool was oddly placed--it was adequately shielded from the restaurant windows by a gate/fence covered in vines. The hot tub was busy so we didn't really ever feel like visiting it (although it was well tended and clean).
The staff were all helpful and nice. This hotel is about a 5-minute drive from downtown--we took a cab ($10 with tip) as we were going to a show. All in all a nice, relaxing weekend at a great hotel!

This hotel had some nice amenaties. GREAT BED. Clean room. Close to the freeway. It is not too far from Sonoma if you wanted a great room but don't want to pay the high prices in Wine Country. They had a great cocktail hour with an all you can eat buffet that is themed every night($10). The night that I stayed, they had a DJ, ribs(other snacks), and $5 drinks. The pool is out door and was clean. The fitness room is not bad and they also had a dry sauna. Nice friendly staff. This is great for business travelers and families. Oh, and pets are welcomed =)

This really is a great hotel. My husband and I have stayed here several times over the last few years. The reception staff are very friendly and make the check-in/out process very speedy. We tend to stay here off season, so you can often get a real bargain. It's convenient for exploring the wineries of Sonoma county. The beds are very good - along with the bathrooms. My only gripe would be that the air con always seems to be either freezing or too warm, no matter how adjusted, so I've found myself getting up in the night to fiddle with! But that's the only fault I can find!
All round this is an excellent hotel is you want a base to explore winecountry. Petaluma is a nice town to potter around in too.

Nice rooms, comfortable beds and quiet. No complaints.

The hotel is 15 minutes from Infineon Raceway, 30 minutes to the city of Napa and 45 minutes to St. Helena.

We stayed for 4 nights, and will be back for sure.
