I wanted to find some safe places to travel and visit during the pandemic. I have been road tripping all up and down the coast during 2020 and now 2021. One place that I had on my list was going to Sonoma. It actually had been on my list of places to go before the pandemic and I am so glad that I came. I stayed at the gorgeous Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn it is such a beautiful property. It sits on 77 acres and has a golf course, spa and several pools that at thermally heated from the hot springs below the property.
We stayed in a gorgeous suite called the Mission Suites. Which have a cute sitting area with a fireplace, king size bed, and large bathrooms. All the bathroom amenities are from my favorite Le Labo. I love that there is a spa tub in the suites, it’s the perfect way to unwind from a day of wine tasting or biking around.
When you arrive there is a welcome bottle of wine and they also have daily wine tasting at the property at 4:30pm They pour some of Sonoma and Napa’s finest. There is plenty of outdoor seating around the hotel. I love that many of the areas have fire pits so that you can sip wine and stay cozy. While we were there we did wine tasting at the hotel and sipped on prosecco and some red wines. It’s a really great way to wine taste if you just want to stay on the property.
I love visiting the Fairmont in Sonoma because I felt very safe. The hotel was clean, they are taking precautions very seriously. They give every guest a personal care kit that contains hand sanitizer, wipes and face masks. There are sanitizing stations all throughout the hotel. Guests were also mindful and were socially distanced. There property has so many cozy corners that you can really feel comfortable and still feel like you’re on a vacation.
If you do want to explore the area, the hotel is located centrally. It’s a short drive from downtown Sonoma that has a lot of cute restaurants and it’s a great place to walk around and do tastings. It’s also close to many beautiful wineries so if you want to get a full wine tasting experience you can visit local wineries in the area.
One of my favorite things to do is have breakfast at a hotel. I never have breakfast at home and there is just something about a hotel breakfast that makes me happy. The avocado toast at the hotel was incredible. I loved sitting outdoors with the crisp air. It was really relaxing. Next time I visit I’ll be sure to have dinner at the hotel as well.
I love properties that you can just relax at. There is no need to leave the Sonoma Mission Inn. You could spend your entire vacation at the hotel. There is something for everyone the kids could swim, you can spa, relax, play golf or just stay in the room and rest. I can’t wait to go back and explore more.
