Centrally located in Sonoma, El Dorado Hotel & Kitchen reflects the town’s casual elegance with its comfortably appointed rooms, convenient amenities, and farm-driven California cuisine. Renowned for its cozy-yet-sophisticated aesthetic, this contemporary boutique hotel features award-winning dining at the famed El Dorado Kitchen. A solar-heated, saltwater pool with plush cabanas complements a lively bar and a lush outdoor garden courtyard. Each of the hotel’s 27 guest rooms offers views from private balconies of Sonoma Plaza and beyond to nearby vineyards.
El Dorado Hotel & Kitchen is housed in the landmark Salvador Vallejo building, built in 1843 for the brother of Sonoma Valley’s founder. One of the town’s most historic structures, this adobe building has been through various incarnations throughout the decades, including periods as a school, church, and wine-making facility. Thoughtfully redesigned and modernized for today’s guests, El Dorado Hotel & Kitchen is located just steps from Sonoma Plaza’s hip art galleries, world-class wine tasting rooms, and specialty boutiques.
On site, spacious guest rooms are designed with French doors, private balconies, and modern, complimentary amenities. Guests can dine at El Dorado Kitchen, enjoying fresh, seasonally sourced fare indoors or out. Visitors are encouraged to relax on cushioned chaises by our solar-heated pool or end the day curling up in an inviting fireplace lounge. Of course, anyone wishing to harken back to the past needn’t look further than the building’s courtyard, where they’ll glimpse the owner’s’ prized fig tree, aged over 150 years.
