Rated 3 out of 5 by Sheri55 Hotel is so so
First room I checked into had stains on the sheets and then in between the flat sheet and mattress cover there was tons of hair. Very disgusting. Received a new one which was clean but the so called bed that was supposed to be great was horrible but the pillows were nice. The money I paid for the room and being a Sheraton I would expected a lot more and not false advertising on how great the bed was. Would I stay there again not sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nann36 Awesome pet-friendly hotel
This Sheraton hotel was wonderful. The room was very clean and quiet, the staff was super friendly and helpful, the coffee was very good, parking was convenient, and overall the hotel felt safe and well taken care of. The best part was the close proximity to the beautiful 500 acre wetland park, marina and nearby dog park! We will definitely stay here again (and hopefully get a chance to enjoy the nice looking pool area!).

Rated 4 out of 5 by TRex65 Nice surprise
I had no expectations for this hotel, but it was outstanding. I used it as a stop over after a vacation in Mendocino on my way back to work, so I would not have such a long drive, but this hotel had great service, a spacious and comfortable room, and great food in their restaurant/room service. I had room service bring me the duck two-ways which was delicious, and I had a great breakfast downstairs in the morning. A+

Rated 3 out of 5 by Champ14 Terrible Restaurant and Catering Service
The service at the hotel restaurant was very slow and unresponsive. It took over 2.5 hours to have a 3 course meal. It would have been longer if we hadn't said anything. The food was good but not good enough to wait over an hour for our food.

Easy/plentiful free parking and welcoming check-in. Spacious room (with a safe). Decent fitness room. On premise dining with a coffee shop in the same building. Easy to drive to/from the area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by frodersf Very Nice
Our stay was quite nice. We arrived early and were allowed to check in after looking at the room to make sure it met our approval. The staff was courteous and helpful.
We went to the restaurant one time. It was quite expensive with nothing appealing on it. We got up and left before the waiter showed up.
It is also worth noting that we didn't have to pay for parking like we usually do being a SPG Gold member.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FDR38 Its the little things
Called two weeks ahead to advise hotel that my dog would be traveling with me. When checking in Brian the clerk told me the first floor pet friendly rooms were sold out. To his credit he put us in a room on the 2nd floor, gave us club room access and made sure to offer the extra benefits for SPG Gold members. It worked out fine, but since the hotel had been notified two weeks prior to check-in that I would have my dog with me, a room on the first floor should have been blocked for me.
Went for a morning swim at 9;00 AM. Pool was locked up tight even though opening time is 7:00 AM. Front desk offered to have the pool opened in 10 to 15 min. Didn't want to wait around the lobby in my swimsuit so I told them not to bother for me.
Club lounge is really an afterthought at this location. Terrible stale pastries and soggy oatmeal at breakfast and no drinks in fridge in the afternoon.. Also, it should be have been cleaner.
All in all, i would return if I needed a place to stay, but my expectations would be much lower.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DavidWaterloo Internet Down
The hotel was pleasent in appearence, No concerige from what I saw, no one to meet us with our bags on arrival. Front staff seemed very inexperienced.Most importantly the internet was down most of the trip, and because our room was far from reception, the short time it was up the signal was not strong enough in room. Reception said they have had problem with internet for weeks. I lost a client as a result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JessD Great place for wedding preparations!
We had a bride, together with bridesmaids stay in two conjoined rooms at this hotel, and it was a perfect place for us all to get prepared for the special event. Having the conjoined rooms was so convenient and the late check out was very helpful. Staff was very accomodating to our needs and overall it was the perfect place for out-of- towners to prepare for a wedding (which by the way was beautiful :).

Rated 5 out of 5 by LynnS Another Great Stay
This was my second 1 night stay at the Petaluma Sheraton using my SPG points. I cannot complain about anything for either stay. This time the hotel was full, but we still got great service. There was not a room with a king size bed when I reserved but when I checked in, they found one. With a view at that. The evening wine tasting in the lobby was unexpected but enjoyable . I love this Sheraton.

Overall, the hotel experience was great...our only comment was that our room never was cleaned. On Saturday, we were gone from early morning until 11:30 am. We then returned to the room, put a "do not disturb" sign on the door, until we left at 3:00 p.m. When we returned at 11:00 p.m., we saw our room had never been attended to. It was OK with us, but thought we should mention this to you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bookie Lovely and pleasant hotel.
We have stayed in many Sheratons in different places and found this one tops the list. Beautiful location and facilities. Greeted warmly by the desk person and later, though he was the one who also handled the coffee and snacks, took time with us to answer questions. He was courteous and pleasant. The greetings and courtesy were repeated by the a.m. clerk, the maid, and the workman we saw.

I made the trip to petaluma with my wife to see some wineries in sonoma county! When we walked in we were blown away by their beautiful lobby and such warm and friendly staff. Take advantage of the social hour offered in the cocktail lounge! Mark, in the restaurant was great! The Engineering staff was very friendly and helpful. Christian Recommended great wineries! Cant wait to come back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ben2012 Nice resort property
Located within an hour or SFO, and less than half an hour from Sonoma. Right off the 101 highway for easy access. At the same time, the hotel is close to the water, so there is a relaxing marina feel to the area.
Almost each of the front desk staff I dealt with was courteous and pleasant. The fireplace in the lobby was warm and cozy.
Only suggestions would be that the hotel seems a little dated and could use a renovation at some point. Also, carpet cleaning could take place at off hours. Tolay restaurant needs a menu upgrade. Might also be a good idea for the hotel shop to carry some more wines/souvenirs from the wine valley region.
Club lounge was nice. Although, most Sheraton clubs I have been to around the world offer complimentary wine. I would imagine this would make the most sense here, especially given the proximity to a world renowned wine region.
All in all, very much an enjoyable stay.

Rated 3 out of 5 by yogadame hotel was adequate
I think this hotel is overpriced. The rooms were fine but not for the price. The lounge was not worth the extra $30 if you are thinking of have a bite before dinner (poor quality and food sitting around for a long time)
Breakfast was better although barely. The breakfast staff in the lounge however were first class and made us very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by David68 An excellent stay
This is my first time to stay at this hotel. It really surprise me that the its location is beautiful! I was upgraded to a room located on the edge of the building and can go out to the balcony to view outside. There is a trail outside of the hotel and it is very nice to run outside. The room is clean and the bed is very comfortable.
I will definitely come back and stay again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LeftyDJ Overall great visit.
This was our second stay in the past six months. We thoroughly enjoyed the hotel despite a "glitch" with our first room! We were given Room 275. It was constantly very noisy - sounded like a mechaical room was nearby. Jason, your desk clerk was wonderful. The next morning he changed our room assignment and all was well after that. Please investigate the Room 275 noise isue !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leslie55 The staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful.
We were quite pleased with our experience at the hotel and enjoyed the engaging staff and the comfort provided by the room and amenties. We rented a house for our stay and were only looking for the first night accommodation prior to our extended stay. After our experience we would not hesitate to return for a longer stay, or to recommend this hotel to our friends and family.

My wife and I have stayed at the Sheraton Sonoma County four or five times, and have thoroughly enjoyed each stay. The staff is friendly and attentive. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. We especially enjoy the food and the staff in the club lounge. We have always found the pool to be clean, though sometimes the towel basket is empty. We love staying at this hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 4phoenix3 Petaluma Sheraton
I recently stayed at the hotel for a conference in February. The staff seemed a little overwhelmed by the number of people the conference brought and were short staffed. Eating utensils and glasses were dirty and the hotel was intensely cold. These are very easy fixes, so I hope they make these few adjustments so they can give the outstanding service they are capable of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nana This hotel is well situated in the North Bay
We stay here often since many of our family live in the North Bay Area. We always feel welcome and the staff is so very accommodating. The rooms have always been neat and tidy and sparkling clean. There was just one issue that you may look into. The tub seems to be very slippery when you step in to shower. Could you have something to put on the floor of the tub?

One club chair.and a desk swivel chair for 2 people .means someone is on the bed....for a 3 day stay! We needed another chair, no ottoman...also being dead tired at the end of the day to sit up and watch some t.v....the remote seemed to need a new battery, unable to change stations w/o getting right up to the TV. Hallway consistently had debris/garbage visible

The shower head is not usable if you are under 6 feet tall.
My Wife is 5' 2" and would get drowned if she was to use the shower head. Some women do not wash their hair every night.

Not centrally located. I would forget the star points and go with a local boutique lodging establishment closer to wine country. Afternoon shift/evening excellent. Morning needs training. First Starwood Property I have ever given below a 4 this should tell you something. I will steer clear of this brand of the Starwood Family for a while.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed Going downhill?
The service in the lounge was shoddy this trip. The usual older gentleman was not there and he was always very attentive. This time there were new younger people that were very lax in the cleanliness, the stocking of food, the interaction with guests... I also notice the chairs arms in the bar downstairs were a bit sticky. Have they ever cleaned them?

I always try to stay here when I'm in the area; great location and very comfy rooms.
This last time there were minor but irritating issues, like the remote for the TV not working. I asked housekeeping to replace it or the batteries; which didn't happen. So, I didn't get to watch any movies, which is my way to relax at night. Oh well, maybe next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marilyn24 Great experience in Petaluma
Traveling frequently for work, hotels have become my home away from home and this Sheraton in Petaluma was a very pleasant experience. The room was spacious and comfortable and everything worked as it should. I didn't take advantage of the free wi fi since I have my own hot spot but I appreciated their offer. The view overlooking the small harbor and wetland was restful. I had access to a balcony (some rooms have their own) overlooking the harbor where I could sit and enjoy a glass of wine from the bar downstairs. The food at the Tolay restaurant was very good, the bar fully stocked and the servers were friendly. The Starbucks - although it opens late for an early riser - has a little store in addition to the coffee served each morning.
The hotel is just outside of town, only a 5 minute drive, and at the edge of the Schollenburger Park, a wetland preserve with a great walking/running trail that goes for miles.
All in all it's a well run establishment and I would easily recommend it to others.
