The diverse landscape of Sonoma Valley ranges from dramatic cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean to charming towns and majestic forests – and there are hotels that make the most of each of these spectacular settings. This is our list of the best hotels in Sonoma Valley, California.
Staying in this hotel is a bit like bunking down in an art gallery. The thoughtful architecture offers a serene backdrop for eye-catching artwork by local artists, commissioned in collaboration with Oakland’s Swarm Gallery. Guests are greeted by Ned Kahn’s Spoonfall water sculpture, a dynamic piece that makes use of 2,000 espresso spoons – and which gives the hotel’s restaurant, Spoonbar, its name. As you move up through the hotel, you’ll encounter Stephen Galloway’s photographic glass installations, which make it feel as if you’re rising through the canopy of an oak tree.
