Upon recommendation from a friend who frequents Sonoma County, I booked a few nights at the Fountaingrove for a 30th birthday girls’ getaway. It was the perfect place to stay! The hotel is located just off the freeway(but not noisy at all!!) and outside of the downtown areas, which was actually quite perfect for us – easy access to wine country and day-tripping, but close enough to downtown Santa Rosa to enjoy the scene there too.
The hotel style is sleek and elegant, without being stuffy at all. We were immediately impressed with the décor, style, and ambiance. The pool and hot tub area were lovely – small, but with enough tables and lounge chairs to enjoy an afternoon glass of wine in the sunshine!
We stayed in a junior suite (use your AAA card for a great rate!), and really appreciated that bit of extra space for our group of three. The room was appointed with everything you’d expect from a great hotel, and was clean, well-positioned, and spacious.
We didn’t have a chance to try the on-site restaurant, so can’t comment on that.
But what really blew us away was the service, particularly from Chris Morano, the chief concierge. From the moment we walked in the door, until the moment we left, Chris was our best friend! We showed up with little plans pre-made, and Chris helped us sculpt the perfect few days. He had recommendations for the best restaurants (and helped secure reservations), knew the best wineries and scenic routes to take to get there, and shared insights on what to miss and not miss in the area. In the evening, he was truly excited to hear about our adventures from the day and if we enjoyed his recommendations. He knew we were there on a girls’ birthday celebration, and really worked hard to make everything so special for us. We felt like queens, thanks to Chris!
I plan to return to Sonoma again (hopefully soon!) and will definitely stay again at the Fountaingrove.
