The Setting

Find all the best Sonoma Wine Country has to offer at the Sandman Hotel. Right in the middle of Santa Rosa surrounded by California native landscaping and views of rolling green hills, you’ll find this playful, yet refined roadside inn. If that description evokes memories of simple Route 66 motels, then you’re due for a Sandman upgrade. This AAA Diamond Award winner and Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence recipient is as savvy and modern as they come, and (hold applause) works with a large variety of local charities and non-profit organizations.

Sleep and Sanctuary

The 135 fresh and airy lodgings at the Sandman take on California retro-chic motifs and offer touches like in-room fridges, microwaves, free Wi-Fi, HDTVs, Bluetooth speakers and chill lounging areas. Rest easy knowing every inch of the room and linens were cleaned with products labeled Safer Choice by the EPA. The custom furnishings from local makers are a nice Kind touch, too. Every member of your clan is welcome to kick back and relax in the Sandman’s pet-friendly rooms where your furry friends are treated to their own set of amenities. Why not, they’re also on vacation.
