Rated 4 out of 5 by LJH444 Great staff, limited lounge
The staff were very helpful and attentive. The rooms are getting a little dated and the ac is very loud, however it was neat and clean.
Definitely a vacation/ family type hotel, I would avoid if on business.

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Cathey24 Renovations in process
This hotel will be great once the renovations are finished. I was really disappointed in the breakfast since the breakfast area was under construction - it was in a meeting room. it was only ok. I had looked forward to the omelets each day but while I was there, they were not offered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Antonio21 Nice hotel
I really enjoyed my stay. The room was very clean and nice and always ready for me when I would return from work. My only suggestion would be a different selection of food in the club room for breakfast choices having other alternatives vs the same daily. Overall I enjoyed my stay.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MXglobe Lots to improve
The only person seemed to be happy and helpful at our late check in was the porter man.
Hotel is right off highway, marina view and hotel picture was somewhat misleading.
No or very limited recognition to Starwood preference guest.
Okay but we have stayed much cleaned sharetons.

The facility was great, staff were excellent. The service award goes to Wendy, what a great personality and provided great service for our breakfast and drinks at the pool. Excellent location.
I do think the beds need to be replaced, we had better beds while we were on the road.

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.

In order of help; Charlie, Kirk, Joshua, Zach and Kevin were all exceptional hospitality representatives for the Hotel.
We'll probably be staying at this property at another time when we visit our daughter in San Francisco. Thanks for a great three days!

The hotel staff was friendly and answered questions as well as provided suggestions on activities around the local area. The rooms were comfortable, check-in and check-out eas, and the location was nice and close to Sonoma and Napa Valleys. I recommend this hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jamie40 only one complaint
Breakfast did not meet expectations found it a little over priced. Would have perferred a more conventional menu instead of the napa valley theme ! I will stay there again in future but will eat some place local. Also it would have been nice to have valet parking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laurie55 Wedding dress shopping
Our room wasn't ready when we arrived, but since we were busy shopping for my daughters wedding dress, we didn't have time for a marina view. We had a gorgeous room on the club level. Enjoyed the club hospitality room. From now on, it will be the club level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Edventure Good location for a great stay.
Being close to so many natural settings from Bodega Bay to nearby wetlands, this hotel provides a great base. Its accommodating staff and comfortable rooms all combine to make this a fine option to consider for a stay in this enticing area of California.

Rated 4 out of 5 by geonolta Comfortable bed with excellent room service
We travel with a small dog, so room service availability was important. The food via room service was excellent - and very quick. This Sheraton has a very good kitchen. Only downside was that the pool is located in a cold windy area, so was not inviting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BusinessTraveler2 Food & Beverage Needs Help
The staff and hotel room were very nice. the food and beverage area needs a lot of help. It could be so much nicer. The arms of the cloth chairs were stained and very dirty. Two big signs announcing 90+ point wines get your hopes up but then quickly let you down. The signs advertise Reidel Stemware, but there were no Reidels to be found anywhere. Just cheap, thick $1 wine glasses you can get at any discount store. There is a 2 glasses of wine for $5 happy hour. The bartender did not know much about any of the wines being served. The Chard was served ice cold. The Zin had been open for at least three days and was very warm. I was told to try the calamari. The presentation was nice, but it was basically just fried breading with no calamari inside. The servers were nice, but the service at all four meals I ate at the restaurant was extremely slow and it was not due to it being busy. Overall, a nice place to stay, but avoid the food and beverage, which is dissappointing because it is in wine country and setting is beautiful on the water.

The hotel is situated less than a mile from my destination. The desk staff was efficent and friendly. The morning club attendant was very helpful and attentive. The evening club attendant was non existant. The telvision remote was sub-standard.

Your staff is great and your lobby looks fantastic. The bed was very comfortable, but there were stains on the chairs and lamp shades and the paint was chipped around the bath room mirror. The room just felt "old". I think it needs a face lift.

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.

Nice and clean bedroom, nice gym club, nice jacuzzi.
Swimming pool a little cold and too close to the freeway (but it is well isolated and we don't ear the freeway noise when we are in the bedroom.
It was nice to be able to come with our dog.
