Rated 4 out of 5 by DKGirl Location, location, location
This is a beautiful hotel, situated among historical and cultural places that deserve to be explored... Not to mention all the amazing wineries. The place is very nice, and although the food is good, it didn't meet a level that I would call exceptional. What was exceptional however was the cost. Very reasonable for such a nice hotel, even room service was reasonable.

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.

We stay here frequently. There is nothing else in Petaluma that even comes close. The adjacent wetlands trails are wonderful for a brisk walk, the Happy Hour is very good for a quick bite and you are just minutes from downtown with all the great shopping and eating. You can also get to the town of Sonoma or the seashore easily by scenic back-roads or to Marin and San Francisco by 101.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by stickershocked Your rates have doubled !
We have always stayed here when visiting family in the Bay Area. Unfortunately you have priced us out with your room fees. $267.78 for one nights stay. We can afford it, but choose not to. Maybe the new Casino is both a curse and a blessing depending on perspectives. We hosted a party of 12 at the Tolay. At least the restaurant prices were still reasonable - for now anyway!

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.

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

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 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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by CynBr Fabulous view!!
Gorgeous view from our room was unexpected. Loved it!!
The batteries didn't work in the remote and after waiting about 40 minutes, I called to cancel. Next day when I mentioned it on checkout, they credited me with 500 SPG points - more than fair. : )
Only "bad" was linens were scratchy (which seems to be common at Sheraton's based on this trip.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Prettypaws What I expected
It was pretty much what I would expect from a Sheraton hotel. There were two things that were not quite up to snuff - the spa was not working and there wasn't a sign on it. I called the front desk and they didn't know about it. The bed was so high that I had trouble gettin up on it. I'm average height so a shorter person would really have trouble.

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 4 out of 5 by GeeBee3 My Stay
I enjoyed my stay. A couple of problems that caught my eye.
The first I see in many lodging. The grout between the tiles in the bathroom and particularly the shower had mildew in it. That should be cleaned with an effective bleaching cleaner between every guest's stay.
The second was a less than robust WiFi. I was unable to get much work done.

the Sheraton Sonoma County is an oasis in the desert; our room had a view of the marina, services were amazing, reception staff were courteous and efficient, upgrading us to a better room even though we had made a last minute booking. We were disappointed we hadn't known about this hotel earlier as we would have made more use of the facilities.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dennis79 Reservation & Cleanliness Lacking
The room provided did not match the reservation I made. We called in to request a Club Level room that was pet-friendly. The reservation was made as requested. However, upon check-in the Front Desk indicated that pets were not allowed on the Club Level floor. While this is understandable, I would have preferred to have been told this from the start. We were moved to the first floor.
The facility was not very clean. Our room was located on the South side of the property near the marsh. The entrance was filthy. It smelled like a horse's stable. Also, there were two cups sitting on the pipes when we arrived on Friday and were also there when we checked out on Sunday. Also, there were multiple beer bottle caps on the floor along with a lot of dirt, weeds, and other grime. I would think it worthwhile to clean the guest's entrances as this is where a first impression is made.
Also, housekeeping was not up to par for a Sheraton property. They took the dirty towels but didn't hang the new ones. They didn't replace our bed sheets. The sheets were simply flipped; the feet side of the sheets were now at our faces. The bathroom floor was dirty upon arrival and was never cleaned during our stay.
I will look at other hotels when I stay in the area next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnitaD We enjoyed a great stay
My husband and I stayed here in March over a long weekend during the time the Artisan Cheese Festival was held. The hotel was very clean, the service excellent, and the Cheese Festival, which was awesome, was held in tents in the parking lot. It is a great spot from which to tour the wineries, also. We had a great trip and a great stay.

It would be better if the pets were not permitted it is terrible when you go to the parking lot or trail and you see pet waste this makes your hotel look like a dump IF you must have pets stay keep them on a lower floor

I was surprised how beautiful and how well maintained this hotel was because the rate was quite low compared to others in the area. Everything was Perfect. The room was perfect. Exceptionally clean and well maintained. The food was great and it was conveniently located right off off 101. This will be my hotel of choice in Petaluma!

The hotel is in great location and near many Sonoma Vineyards. The onsite restaurant is great. The staff went out of their way and offered excellent service to accommodate our needs. There is just one tiny thing: the linen has many stain marks which is something surprising for Sheraton. I would expect those linens will be replaced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Yvonne12 Comfortable stay
Room was very nice. Clean, comfortable especially the bed & pillows. Room was large and I had a view of the harbor. The staff was great. My only problem was the air conditioner was very noisy. I found the room to be stuffy & hot and each time the air conditioner turned on I was awake. This happenned several times during the night.
