"Good Location"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Our group of 30 people enjoyed our stay at the Cotton Exchange Hotel. There free breakfast was great free breakfast as well as where they are located. My only complaint was that one of our guest had a broken air conditioning unit. There were attempts to fix it; however, it still did not work. Overall, I would stay here again.

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

Testimonials icon
"Our group has done this weekend away for 10+ years always in the Napa/Sonoma area in the Spring. For the past 3 years we have stayed at the same location in Sonoma. This year I used your site to try to find a different and more reasonably priced location. Not only did I find a fantastic hotel in a great new location, I save $100 per night over last year's room fee." J.F. - San Francisco, CA
