“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Only six rooms, all first class, fire place, nice size rooms and facilities. A bit pricey but If you can afford it well worth the experience.

Enjoyed the complimentary wine tasting at their winery as well, no high pressure to join wine club for us.

Ledson Hotel is one of those places where you are sort of expecting things to be great, but aren't quite sure - but - they are absolutely phenomenal. Great hotel - wonderful rooms - not one bad room in the place; impeccable, phenomenal, gentile, old world service (can't say enough about the service - they are just incredible), and an attention to detail that is superb. We went here, spur of the moment, for a birthday weekend and were surprised at every turn... It's impossible to list all of the little personal touches and additional things they did - and not because it was a birthday, but because they do these things from every guest. And, did I say the rooms are beautiful? No comparison - we felt like we were in a movie - or had been transported to Europe 100 years ago. But definitely, one of the best hotel experiences we have had.

Room Tip: You don't have to choose a good room! all of them are good - three face the Sonoma Plaza and the...

We chose this hotel based on the amazingly positive reviews we read on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. All the things the reviewers were raving about this hotel were true. Unfortunately we didn't have time to visit its winery in Kenwood for a private wine tasting, but it was OK. We've already secured a reservation in November to enjoy both the hotel and winery.

Everything about the Ledson is absolutely flawless. We can start with the immaculate room, which has a convenient fireplace, a jacuzzi tub next to the kingsize bed, a balcony with chairs to sit out and enjoy the crisp morning, and all the right touches to make this a memorable hotel. We can move on to the staff, people like Angel (their do-it-all employee) make the difference between a nice hotel and a first-class property that I'll never stop talking about. Their staff is incredibly attentive, very friendly and helpful. If you stay here, don't miss the complementary wine tasting out at their vineyard. Amanda, their wine consultant, provided a very informative private tasting, and we made sure to stop in their marketplace to buy some meats and cheeses for a little picnic. Their grounds are as immaculate as their hotel, and the castle setting is very picturesque. I have to admit this is my first trip to Sonoma, so I can't compare this hotel to others, but I can tell you this - I was so impressed that I won't stay anywhere else whenever I return.

There is only one word to explain our stay at the Ledson Hotel, Perfect! The Hotel is luxurious. Our room was lovely with the finest bedding and amentities along with a fireplace and whirlpool tub.
We had a balcony that overlooked Sonoma Square. A great breakfast was served every morning
and on Sunday we enjoyed a savory brunch. The staff was always so kind and helpful. During our stay we walked about Sonoma Square, which was so unique and delightful. It was so convenient to be staying at the Ledson Hotel that was located in the square and centrally located to other destinations we were visiting such as San Francisco and Napa. The Hotel is new but looks vintage (the craftmanship is amazing). The Ledson has been voted #1 hotel in Sonoma and I totally agree. Stayed in The Whitby's Room but I am sure they are all lovely. Try the food in the Centre du vin (Restaurant on main floor of hotel)

Room Tip: Request a room facing Sonoma Square

We stayed at the Ledson Hotel for our 46th wedding anniversary. It was everything we hoped for and more. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. The bathroom in our room was sumptuous.

We enjoyed breakfast in the restaurant our first morning and in our room the second. It was delicious and plentiful. We, also, ate lunch and dinner in the restaurant and couldn't have been more pleased.

We loved sitting on our balcony overlooking the Plaza sharing a bottle of wine and pleasant conversation. Michelle Ledson and Angel did everything possible to make our stay memorable!

We will return to this lovely hotel again and again!

Room Tip: We stayed in Noble which overlooked the Plaza. Wonderful for people watching!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of the hotel and restaurant! We're delighted that you took advantage of the balcony and enjoyed staying in the Noble room. Noble was Steve Ledson's father (Steve Ledson is proprietor of the hotel and Ledson winery), so it's a very special room to him and he put so much thought into its design. We look forward to the next time you visit. By the way, would you mind if we use your review as a testimonial on our website? Either way, thanks again for taking the time to write about us.

This hotel set right in downtown Sonoma was even more beautiful than its pictures.It is of modern structure but it was built to resemble a historic building from the 1029s I believe. Upon our arrival -way before check in time we were welcomed with a complimentary wine tasting from a wonderful knowledgeable sommelier. He made us feel very comfortable-we were new at this.
From the moment you walk in the classical music is playing through piped in speakers in the bedroom and the bathroom. The room had a private balcony that looked over the main square. The fireplace was beautiful and we could see it from the elaborate mirrored jacuzzi tub.
It was conveniently located to Sonoma and Napa. They also offer a wine tasting and tour of their beautiful estate

Room Tip: we had the middle room facing the main square
