Quaint, boutique inn in downtown Sonoma
This hotel charges an expensive daily resort fee

Located in downtown Sonoma, the MacArthur Place Hotel & Spa wins praise from previous guests for its intimate atmosphere. Although it doesn't have the grandeur of other big-name luxury properties, travelers find this hotel's 64 rooms to be comfortable and homey with their cozy furnishings, LED televisions, custom Grape Seed bath products and minifridges. Meanwhile, the on-site spa offers a long list of massages, skin treatments and specialty services that will lull stressed-out visitors into a relaxed haze. And though MacArthur Place's central locale puts it within easy reach of a number of Sonoma eateries, previous guests highly recommend sitting down to dine at Saddles Steakhouse: the in-house restaurant pairs award-winning cuts of meat with an extensive wine list composed of local Sonoma and Napa Valley vinos. Just beware of the daily $25 resort fee when booking your accommodations here.
