Quaint boutique property in downtown Sonoma
This hotel charges a daily resort fee
Located in downtown Sonoma, the recently refreshed MacArthur Place wins praise from guests for its intimate atmosphere and pleasant decor. Travelers find this hotel's 64 rooms to be comfortable, clean and homey with their cozy furnishings, LED televisions 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 recommend sitting down to dine at Layla Restaurant for vibrant Mediterranean fare. Just beware of the 10% daily resort fee when booking your accommodations here.

Critic Reviews

Condé Nast


Set on a historic 19th-century estate of lush gardens and century-old trees just a short walk to Sonoma's Plaza, MacArthur Place embodies the laid back, relaxed feel of Sonoma. Each of the Inn's 64 rooms are individually designed and appointed with an elegant residential feel.



Intuitive staffers, the spa, and a steakhouse that ranks among Sonoma’s best restaurants make this the right place for a romantic getaway or deluxe R&R weekend.
