“Comfortable rooms with friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

Family of four adults needing two clean rooms and a fitness center for a trip to Napa and Sonoma. We stayed here for five nights because we didn't want to move hotels and we enjoyed our stay. We did a lot of driving but I wasn't able to find any hotels closer to Sonoma/Healdsburg that were comparable in price& reputable and weren't so far from Napa. Plus when I looked into the Hilton in Sonoma it was a bit more expensive but equidistant to all locations as the doubletree.
We drove into San Francisco twice because there wasn't much going on in the area.
Rooms were spacious& comfortable with mini fridge& closet that fit the carryon bags.
Fitness center is smaller and you step outside to get to it. there is an outdoor (supposedly heated-I didn't check) pool but it was too cold to swim, hotel has friendly staff. Balcony is shared with everyone on your floor, we kept the door closed. It's kind of an odd shaped hotel build in a circle. Free parking, welcoming fireplace& sitting area in the Lobby. Id stay here again.

Quick one night stay, everything was great. Breakfast was good, cooked to order omlets for a bit of an upcharge. We were there in quite season, so decent upgrade as HHonors Gold was had. Able to get out and on our way to Napa the next morning with no problems.

This hotel is exactly what you'd expect from a Double Tree. Cookie at check in, friendly front desk, simple, comfortable room.

It's not particularly near anything, but everything in Wine Country is spread out. If you are passing through or not staying long, this is as good a place as any. It seemed to have a lot of tour groups. The room was unremarkable and there really are no views of anything here. It's just a room, but it's quiet and clean and has a balcony.

The continental breakfast would have been good, but we upgraded and weren't disappointed. We had dinner at the little Italian place in the strip mall next to the hotel and it was good, especially for families.

If you are looking for a wine country experience, this is not what you are looking for. However if you are looking for a reasonable place to stay on the way in or out of the area, it's fine and the highway is easily accessible.

Room Tip: Afraid there aren't a lot of choices for an exceptional room. Maybe an interior room that has a...

This hotel is ok if you need a night but other than that their are cheaper better hotels on the area . I think the rooms were old and beat up and their hot tub did not work . The rooms are strange because she all share a long balcony . So I looked out on tube balcony and their were people sitting out by my door !!

That's just weird .

To be fair, the hotel is not all bad. The surroundings are nice, the public areas are pleasant and the breakfast was above average.

Our stay, however, was disppointing. We booked the hotel as a nice place for the last nights of our holidays. We booked through a booking site for the full non-discounted rate.

At the check-in, we were told that we couldn't get the King room we booked because "you cannot guarantee a room type for third-party-bookings". We were given a room on the back side of the hotel, with a window that didn't open. Or rather, as their technician showed us, you had to use a lot force.

My partner complained loudly at the front desk, at which point we were given a better room, and even a bottle of wine to make up for it. This almost pacified us, at least until they didn't make up our room at all on the next day. The explanation was some unintellegible mumbling in the voice mail. When we complained again, they gave us a free breakfast - after telling us we must have left the sign on the door (we didn't).

When dealing with the front-desk staff we always had the subtle feeling not being treated as "proper" guests - since we booked through a third-party site. At the same time we saw them bending over backwards for Hilton "status" customers. Only the girl we addressed our complaints to when checking out showed some real empathy.

All in all: The rooms didn't have a higher standard than cheaper places we stayed in. Basic anemities like Wifi and breakfast came with a hefty price tag. Service was sketchy.

After coming home, I got a customer questionaire and I clearly stated our complaints. As a thank-you I started receiving Hilton's advertising newsletter.

I'm pretty sure you will have a nicer (and cheaper) stay if you are a Hilton loyalty program member. But why bother?

This Doubletree would get higher marks if it weren't for its name and location - it's a decent hotel. The rooms are nice, include a mini frig and plenty of space. The beds are comfortable but all the pillows are of the mushy variety. The bathroom is also nice and fairly spacious for a hotel. The desk staff is pleasant, helpful and generous, giving us two bottles of water upon request each day.

What the Doubletree lacks is self-awareness. This hotel is NOT in Sonoma nor is it in "wine country". For Hilton to name this hotel "Doubletree Sonoma" is entirely inaccurate. It might be in Sonoma county, but it's 20+ miles from Sonoma and 30+ miles from Napa, so definitely not anywhere near wine country. I can't imagine anyone using this hotel for a trip to wine country unless they are willing to rack up a lot of driving miles and spend the difference in cost between this hotel and something more local to Sonoma/Napa on fuel.

Location and name aside, there's nothing wrong with this hotel for under $100/night. Just don't expect it to be near anything for a trip to San Francisco / wine country.

The property is easily accessible from HWY 101 and location is very good to go to wineries in nearby Sonoma or north of Santa Rosa areas such as Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River valley. Being a Hilton Gold member did bring us some nice extra benefits, including complimentary breakfast, two water bottles, free wi-fi, etc.(see photo). The hotel itself is well renovated, with big large lobby and a baby grand piano, living room with nice fireplace, active room with pool table, and library seating arrangements, plenty of seating to relax for guests. Golf course is next to the hotel so I imagine they do quite a bit of conferences and weddings, etc. as the conference facility looks very well organized. From check-in reception (great job Jordan!), to waitstaff in the restaurant, everything was done correctly and efficiently with friendly, courteous, and professional attitude. Our room (parlor suite) was nicely furnished with a jaccuzzi tub in the bathroom. The king bed was super comfy with nice silky linen bed sheets. Crabtree & Evelyn products are nice products also.
Overall, highly recommend the property for a relaxing vacation in the wine country setting. Good value!
