“Perfect place to stay on your Sonoma wine country trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The Hotel La Rose in Santa Rosa, CA is the perfect spot for a several day stay in the Sonoma wine country. It's mid way between the southern end in Sonoma and the northern section in Healdsburg, so makes for a easy trek each day. The staff here is so welcoming - Dade, Jamaica and Bobby made us feel right at home and were forthcoming with lots of helpful info, maps, coupons, guide books, etc. The hotel itself is charming - a nice break from just another chain hotel. The building is over 100 years old, and it is furnished with beautiful antiques. The restaurant was not open during the week, unfortunately, but we did have a continental breakfast every morning. There are plenty of wonderful restaurants in walking distance, so once you get back from touring the vineyards, no need to get back in the car. We'll definitely stay there again. We stayed in the main building and loved everything about it.

Room Tip: We were in room 24, second floor at the front of the building. Nice spot. It's a suite with a si...

Located right in the Railroad of Santa Rosa with limitless eateries within walking distance. Even close enough to walk over to Russian River (our goal). Staff was all very helpful. Offering to help us with reservations, advice, or other attractions to enjoy. Used this as a kickstart to a NorCal coastal vacation, and we were not disappointed. Room was extremely quiet, no road noise; really enjoyed our night here.

I read the review by the guest whose reservation was canceled after booking well in advance due to a wedding. I don't think that is a very good policy. I was a bit worried and feeling a bit guilty. We were guests at that wedding that bumped him. We also booked in early fall 2012. However, when we arrived around noon, they honored our reservation but we were informed that check-in time was 3pm. We had to be at the wedding at 2:30. We found the management understanding and our room was changed to one that had already been made up. The room was lovely and had modern conveniences but still in keeping with the historic nature of the hotel. We found the room comfortable, the showers hot with good water pressure, and a large screen TV. It did not have a closet but did have a little space with hangers in the armoire that held the TV.
Although across from a paid parking lot, the hotel had free parking in a lot close by. The hotel is conveniently located near downtown restaurants and shops.
There are many expensive hotels in the area. The price was reasonable at La Rose and we would definitely stay there again and recommend it to our friends.

Thank you for your review. Please note that Hotel La Rose makes ever effort to not over book but at times it happens and we work very hard to make sure our displaced guest has a great room at a wonderful property which was done. As our guest we do and will continue to work for you to give you the stay you require and deserve.

As a frequent Santa Rosa visitor, I've stayed at (and reviewed) several Santa Rosa hotels in the past, but Hotel La Rose somehow slipped through the cracks. Glad I finally found it because this place defines charming. Historic inns trump chain hotels any day, and this one combines a fun looking building in the middle of the hip Railroad Square with large rooms, modern bathrooms, and a caring staff.

My room was on the top floor, wedged under the slanted roof beams, but no complaint about low ceilings. It just qualified as interesting and eclectic. I was worried when I checked in because I overheard a conversation about how these rooms overheated, but that was a false alarm. My only issue was the excessive number of pillows on the bed. It literally took a couple minutes to figure out what to do with them all before hopping into bed because I only need a couple and didn't want to just throw the other 8 or 10 on the floor.

Next time I return to Santa Rosa, the only reason I would stay anywhere other than the La Rose is if I anticipate time to actually use the lap pool at the Flamingo.

We read the recent review on LA Rose in the LA Times and decided to book a night. I am currently sitting in our suite and absolutely love this place and location. Dade and Jamaica the two inn keeps have been awsome. Our room is very clean and well appointed. They had a complete wine country package with free tasting coupons and maps ready when we arrived this morning. Can't say enough I would come back again in a heart beat.

We had the best experience of our lives at Hotel La Rose. We were forced to speed up our daughter's wedding because her younger sister was dying of cancer. We called Hotel La Rose 3 days before the wedding and they not only accommodated us, but were exemplary in their service. The day of the wedding my caterer dropped the ball and left me without any food for the reception. Hotel La Rose jumped in at the last minute and catered the entire event. They had every opportunity to gouge me and they did not! This is my restaurant and hotel of choice for every event fro now on!

Room Tip: The rooms are adorable!

Had the opportunity to stay at this hotel for the weekend with my Partner. This hotel is a historic property and is in a great location when you are visiting the city of Santa Rosa CA in NorCal wine country. The staff was friendly but room conditions where not up to my standard for a Boutique hotel as this one is. Carpets had been recently dyed and left remants of color on socks and clothing, the shower head worked poorly not giving out a solid stream of carpet and the TV remote did not work properly.
