“A bit of Old Europe just minutes from the highway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Don't be concerned by the proximity to the highway. You can neither see nor hear the traffic. The Inn is a beautiful property made up of several vine-covered European styled buildings on several acres of carefully landscaped grounds. Our spacious room had a high, beamed ceiling, wood burning fireplace and private balcony overlooking adjacent vineyards. A bottle of wine and glasses await arriving guests. We had our morning coffee on our balcony, watching the mists rise from the vineyards as the sun warmed the earth and glinted off the roof of the vintner's shed in the distance. Breakfast in the Front Room was delicious as was dinner in the acclaimed John Ash restaurant. We caught the last half of the Superbowl in the lounge, which is well appointed and well stocked. Service was excellent in all parts of the hotel, from the front desk to the lounge. This was our second stay at the VI and has quickly become a favorite.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the vineyard and enjoy your balcony.

My husband and I were really looking forward to this quick getaway in the wine country. We had purchased a package from travelzoo and upgraded our room to a fireplace room.
Upon arrival we were very pleased. The room was nice, very clean and had a nice little balcony.
We had a great meal at John Ash and Co. We enjoyed the use of the fireplace, then went to sleep. When we awoke, the room was a chilly 60 degrees. We adjusted the heater but it made no difference.We called the front desk, who offered a space heater, but we declined as we were in the process of getting dressed then heading out to breakfast. We assumed it would be repaired when we got back.
Nope. When we returned it was still freezing. We wore our jackets as we packed our bags, then sat in the lounge area until we checked out. It was such a disappointment to be unable to enjoy our room. When we checked out, we mentioned it again, and the management refunded our upgrade fee to the fireplace room, but offered nothing else for troubles.
The next day I received a survey from the Vintners Inn and again stated how disappointed we were in our stay, but have never gotten a response.
I certainly understand that there can be maintenance issues, but feel the hotel should make some attempt to make up for the inconvenience.

I am so sorry for your discomfort during your stay. It turned out that it was not a quick fix that our maintenance department could correct. Our head of maintenance did check the unit before you left but had to call in the professionals. I do hope that you'll give us another try and please call me directly to assist you with a reservation. Thank you. Sue

Santa Rosa's Vintners Inn, located quite close to the Charles M Schulz Sonoma County Airport, is a delightful yet low-key luxury hotel. This was a quick trip and we didn't have an opportunity to patronize the restaurant or the cocktail lounge; we'll have to leave that for our next trip.

Our room was spacious, spotless, and well-appointed. The king-sized bed was very, very comfortable. Many years ago I was an executive with Sheraton Corporation; Vintners Inn is the equal of any of the dozen or so hotels I encountered way back then.

If business or pleasure (or both) take you to central Sonoma County, I'd recommend Vintners Inn in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: I doubt that there are any poor rooms!

Great staff, food and rooms. The upgrade to the fireplace room was not available. It would have been much nicer with the fireplace because the room was a bit cold. The hotel is very nice and the location is fantastic. A little suggestion to improve the gym that has limited machines and it gets really cold.

Lovely Inn in a vineyard. Great massages and food. Very relaxing and enjoyable. We went after a hectic Holiday week and were so pleased to be pampered with good food and wine and recommendations for visiting other wineries. Would go back in a heartbeat.

We did a Travel Zoo package for a two night stay, which included some wonderful gifts like a $75 dinner voucher, welcome cocktails, special wine tasting tours, two for one breakfasts....
I upgraded at a fee of $49 for the two nights to the fireplace room because we were so looking forward to a crackling fire on a wet and cold weekend. Unfortunately there is a by-law in Sonoma county that doesn't allow real wood to be burned, so we were greeted by presto logs. :( It wasn't the experience we were looking for, but the room was very nice. They say on the website that they host a nightly wine and cheese for guests, but they only had one the first night. On Saturday we asked about it and were told that "they couldn't find a winery to come"...so it sounds like it's not a regular event which is a bit misleading.
The dinner was absolutely lovely on the patio with heaters and twinky lights... great service and beautifully prepared food. The lounge is also very cozy and has a great happy hour, obviously a big locals hang out because the hotel seemed very quiet (weekend before Christmas) and the lounge was packed both nights we were there. The breakfasts were also really good, we ate there both mornings and it was equally good both times. The package was a great value, although I wouldn't upgrade to the fireplace room again, and it was raining the whole time we stayed so we didn't get to see the grounds or walking trails at all. Overall it was a very nice experience....

Room Tip: ask for the block of rooms that are away from the freeway. This hotel does not have sound proof doub...

We recently spent a getaway night at the Vintner's Inn with our extended family. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, and we were all located next to each other in the same small building. The John Ash restaurant was a delightful and convenient place to relax and dine after a long day of wine tasting!
We took advantage of the spa/massage services pre dinner, and several of our party enjoyed to big outdoor hot tub.
The staff was extremely helpful...they gave us recommendations for wine tasting, along with passes to some of the vineyard tasting rooms. They also accommodated our rooming and dining requests to perfection.
The running trails around the vineyards that surround the property helped us recover from our food and wine comas the next morning.
Great trip!
