DENVER–Tom Luersen, president of CoralTree Hospitality, announced that the company has taken over the management of the Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country in Santa Rosa, Calif. The 253-room hotel offers easy access to hundreds of wineries in Sonoma County and is conveniently located near the Historic Railroad Square and downtown Santa Rosa.
“We are excited to add our first wine country hotel to the CoralTree collection,” said Luersen. “However, this property provides so much more from shopping and dining in charming downtown Santa Rosa to outdoor pursuits in nearby Bodega Bay. We look forward to working closely with the team and ownership to further enhance the guest experience at the Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country.”
The property features three restaurants, a wine tasting room, an outdoor pool, spa tub, bicycle rentals and 24-hour fitness center. The team at Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country can set up private and public winery tours and the property often hosts several winery release events throughout the year. The hotel also offers more than 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space for corporate, group and social functions. The largest room is the Alexander River Ballroom which can accommodate up to 590 guests in its 7,000 square feet of flexible space. There also are two large outdoor garden spaces that are perfect for receptions, wedding and social engagements.
The hotel’s 253 spacious, scenic guest rooms feature soothing natural tones and textures, artwork from local artists and spa-inspired bathrooms. Guests can choose from four suites including the 850-square-foot Live Art Studio Suite showcasing art by Carol Watanabe, a world-renowned Sonoma County-based impressionist. The premium suite features a patio, two queen sized beds and a sleeper sofa.
The Railroad Stop restaurant offers three meals a day along with Sonoma Café’s intimate lounge offering fireside seating both indoors and outdoors. Sonoma Café currently offers new American dining options that can be paired with small-batch wines and local craft beers. Snacks and casual fare are available poolside at the Pool Café, which is operated seasonally.
In addition to the Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country’s access to some of the best wineries in the world, the property offers easy access to downtown Santa Rosa for shopping dining and museums. Guests also can enjoy a stroll along the nearby Riverwalk. There are plenty of family-friendly activities in the area including the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center celebrating the creator of the Peanuts comic strip and Luther Burbank Home & Gardens where the famed horticulturist lived and experimented with plant breeding for more than 50 years. Bodega Bay is a 20 mile drive from the hotel for guests interested in exploring a redwood forest, whale watching or outdoor activities such as biking, rock climbing, surfing and more
