A Sonoma getaway in the heart of it all, meet El Dorado Hotel & Kitchen.

The Setting

Housed in the landmark Salvador Vallejo Building, built in 1843, is the El Dorado Hotel & Kitchen. Don’t let her age fool you, this recent inhabitant of the building has been thoughtfully redesigned and modernized with features such as an award winning restaurant focused on seasonal farm-driven fare and a solar-heated saltwater swimming pool. Ideally located in charming Sonoma Plaza, this hideaway is just steps from hip art galleries, world-class wine tasting rooms and specialty boutiques.

Sleep and Sanctuary

Each of El Dorado’s 27 guest rooms boast French doors that lead to private balconies, opening up the sophisticated rooms to views of Sonoma Plaza and vineyards beyond. Despite the hotel’s age, you’ll find modern touches like complimentary Wi-Fi, Tivoli Bluetooth audio systems, Illy espresso machines and mini-fridges alongside Kind touches like reusable water bottles and original local artwork.

Eat. Pray. Eat.

An experience in Sonoma should be a dazzling one for the culinary senses and on-site local favorite El Dorado Kitchen delivers in spades with a sophisticated, yet relaxed, wine country spirit. Helmed by Executive Chef Armanda Navarro, who has trained under some of the best chefs in the country including Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Richard Reddington, El Dorado Kitchen’s award-winning menu highlights Sonoma ingredients that change with the seasons. The restaurant also offers a robust wine list, heavily tilted toward local Sonoma and Napa wineries, alongside signature cocktails crafted using only the finest spirits and fresh juice infusions.

El Dorado Kitchen - Relax in a handsome main dining room, a front corner cafe, cozy bar, or a tree-lined al fresco patio for breakfast, lunch, dinner and a Sunday brunch. Pamper your palate with a mushroom risotto with celery root, spinach, mascarpone, truffle oil and parmesan. Pardon our drool, please.

The Art of De-stressing

With a historic boutique hotel, your token de-stressing amenities like a fitness center and spa sometimes have to be sacrificed for the sake of charm, but geographically speaking, they won’t be sorely missed. Should you find yourself still craving the active lifestyle, complimentary bikes are provided for your touring pleasure as well as an abundance of nearby jogging and hiking trails. A saltwater pool is on property to get those laps in, too.

We’d be remiss not to mention touring the world-class wineries in Sonoma and nearby Napa as a de-stresser, so here’s a map to get you started.
