I cannot say enough about this property. Amazing. It’s a perfect location to get to an endless number of wineries. There were no rental cars available the week we came because of the pandemic but we didn’t need one at all. Save the money on the rental car and grab a shuttle to the hotel. They will take care of everything from there. Cute little bikes that you can take for free and ride all around the downtown/Square area. A great pool, an credibly good restaurant and bar And the staff are ALL amazing. And I do mean everyone of them. It started with the amazing manager/host, Michael. This guy did everything he could every day to make us feel welcome, give us guidance on places to go and cover any issues that came up. Dax in the bar is one of the best bartenders around. All of the wait staff including and especially Daniel were incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and just a pleasure to be around. That was our first Wine country trip. I won’t go anywhere else or stay anywhere else. We’ll be back next year and probably every year after. Thank you El Dorado!

Excellent location, super comfortable bed and pillows, great restaurant

I can not stop bragging about how much I love this hotel to my friends and family! This place went above and beyond in every way possible making our time there truly memorable. Centrally located, incredible staff and beautifully appointed rooms, I will certainly stay here again next time we go to Sonoma.

Only stayed one night but loved the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful with recommendations. The balcony was small but nice. Great location for walking the town but can be noisy with all the road traffic. I would stay here again.

Great location, nicely remodeled, clean, great staff! Loved everything about this hotel! Highly recommended!

Great hotel, close to everything. No elevator though since it’s two stories. There are handicapped accessible rooms though. Highly recommend!

Nice hotel especially the convenience of being in the Sonoma Square. Our room was very small and the LED street light brightened the room all night as though it was daylight. The hotel needs to change the window covering to block the bright lights from the street. For the cost of this room at $330.00 on a Sunday night I probably won't book it again due to this issue and the street noise.

This early 20th century building has been renovated into a charming boutique hotel with modern amenities. The staff are EXCELLENT, great restaurant and bar downstairs, charming courtyard with pool as well. Perfect location, just off of the main square. We'll be back!

enjoyed hotel, location, cleanliness etc - need more light in the room - at least lamps with brighter bulbs

The El Dorado Hotel is in a perfect location on Sonoma's Plaza. We were able to walk nearly everywhere we wanted to go. Although the room was small, it was lovely and had everything we needed. Our room overlooked the plaza which was a nice view. As with any hotel, noise from adjoining rooms can be tricky - we were awakened quite early by a "neighbor" talking loudly on his cell phone on the deck. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and will stay at the El Dorado again.

Great hotel, exceeded our expectations. Ideal location in the heart of Sonoma, right in the plaza. Hotel room was clean and had all the required amenities. The girl at the front desk was new and was taking forever to check guests in, then only programmed our key cards for a day so we got locked out on day two and had to go around to the front desk to get new keys. Other than the girl at the front desk, we loved the hotel and would recommend to everyone. The restaurant was very good as well. Overall a great experience.

Attractive, clean hotel with good service. Not geared to the business traveler as rooms are small and lack desks. My husband always needs to do some work while we're on a trip and it was difficult for him to do it in our room. There is no desk or table to put a laptop or papers on. The service was very good, however, and the location can't be beat -- right on the square in downtown Sonoma.

We stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. The room had a "rustic chic" feel and was very clean. We stayed in the rooms to the right on the pool and it was amazing. We had our own patio and it was very quiet. The rest of the hotel is very nice and, although we didnt eat there, the restaurant looked amazing and was always full for dinner. The hotel staff were very nice and accommodating and even left us a note wishing us a happy honeymoon. Those are the small things that can make a stay go from great to amazing. The hotel is right in the middle of downtown Sonoma and surrounded by restaurants and shops. Wineries are only a few minutes away in any direction. We will definitely be back!

Situated in the heart of Sonoma's square, the El Dorado Hotel was the perfect place for us to spend our nights after busy days wine tasting and exploring the Sonoma countryside. Staff was super pleasant and very accommodating. Room was clean with a modern vibe to it. We choose a room with a small patio/deck, which we used often. Would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend the girl and the fig and el dorado kitchen restaurants.
