“So Cute!”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

The Metro Hotel is one of the cutest, most interesting and eclectic places I've ever been to. The owners are just wonderful and the rooms are individually decorated so it feels like you're staying in a friend's guest house -- complete with morning coffee and pastries. Very cozy. It was a nice retreat to come "home" to after a long day of meetings.

Room Tip: Room 123 has a bedside lamp shaped like a goose that is somehow not tacky at all!

Metro Hotel & Cafe captures the charm of Provence with a casual and elegant ambience - all in the heart of downtown Petaluma. The large rooms are decorated with whimsical and functional antique items set against splashes of blue, red and yellow furniture and drapes. This is my second stay and I highly recommend the experience to anyone visiting the Petaluma area. Fresh morning coffee and pastries are available in the Cafe with French doors opening to terraces. Guests walk to their rooms by taking garden pathways that meander alongside hedges, roses and climbing vines. Many guest rooms have private terraces with bistro table, umbrella and chairs. The rates are attractive, the rooms clean with great cotton bed sheets & duvets and the service is present, yet discreet. I've stayed upstairs in a large airy suite and downstairs with a terrace. Both were delightful and I can't wait to return.

Our two-night stay at the Metro Hotel this past September (2011) was an experience that exceeded all expectations. Our room rate was unmatched for a high-quality place to stay in the area, the room itself was warm, welcoming, stylish, and comfortable (as were all the staff we encountered during our visit), the location is prime for exploring Petaluma and its surrounds, and there was not a single moment from check-in to check-out lacking for accommodating and well-appointed convenience. We fell in love with Petaluma that weekend, a sentiment only further enhanced by our time at the truly charming Metro Hotel.

I was on a road trip from Seattle to San Diego over 3 weeks with a new hotel most days. I have to say this hotel, and indeed Petaluma, were the unexpected joys of the holiday. I needed somewhere to stop that night and Petaluma was in the right place but I didn't expect such brilliant accommodation. The place has been beautifully made out in bold primary colours with a serious Parisian theme. My room was very comfortable with lovely old style bathroom fittings. Its was a short walk into town where I had great food and drink. The staff are friendly and helpful in this bohemian establishment and I have honestly never seen anything like it. It has to be seen to be believed. There are photos on line. Stay there, Its an absolute joy.

We loved the Metro Hotel. The decorations were awesome and the place was very clean. We were greeted by an adorable little girl who showed us the ropes. There are plenty of rooms, each with their own charm and character. The beds were comfy and once again the rooms were very clean. I would definitely recommend The Metro, I wish I could have stayed longer than one night!

This hotel was adorable & you can get a good cup of coffee in the morning. It's more like a bed and breakfast without the ridiculous price.
