My husband and I stayed at the Lodge at Sonoma and loved it. It was so relaxing and nice. Great service too. We stayed in one of their cottages which featured a nice balcony and gas fireplace. My favorite aspect of our room had to be the shutters above the tub though. They opened up to the living room so I could relax in the bathtub, wine glass in hand, and watch tv. It was perfect! Being so close to Sonoma Plaza was an added bonus. We are actually going back Thanksgiving week for three days! We plan on visiting the Plaza again, grabbing some cheese, wine and baguettes, maybe renting some bikes(bike rentals are available next to the hotel) and then returning to our room to do it all again. I can hardly wait!

So, I guess you could say I'm a bit partial to Lodge at Sonoma. Sorry Marriott!

Carjeff,

Sorry, I did stay there but the name did not sound familiar when you put Renaissance in front of it. I am just a simple soul! Guess maybe I wasn't that impressed. However, it was free so I may have gotten one of the "back" rooms.

Now that I know, I would prefer the Napa Marriott.

Hawkeye - I thought I had read in one of your trip reports that you had stayed at the Lodge at Sonoma earlier this year.

Hi Jeff,

As you know, we are "Napa Side" visitors so have not stayed at the Renaissance Lodge at Sonoma.

Until we found Calistoga, we stayed at the Marriott several times. It is a Mariott and you get what you expect, no less, and no more. I would have no problem returning.

My wife and I are planning at trip to Sonoma/Napa in Nov. We were originally going to stay 2 nights at a B&B in Calistoga, and 1 night at the Renaissance Lodge at Sonoma. The event we were planning to attend in Calistoga has been cancelled, so our plans have changed.
Since I'm a Marriott Platinum Member, I wanted to take advantage of the perks, and stay all 3 nights at a Marriott property. I'm thinking of staying all 3 nights at the Lodge, but am also considering the Napa Marriott.
We had stayed at the Lodge a few years ago, and loved the place. How does the Marriott compare to the Lodge?
We are planning to spend a few days in Napa, and a few in Sonoma and/or Carneros. Any suggestions on which property is preferred? Thanks.
