Property Description

Under new ownership as of April 1, 2015, Petaluma's own historic Hotel Petaluma is being resurrected as the grand hotel and pride of Sonoma county it once was when it first opened its doors in 1924. Currently undergoing a full-scale renovation and open for business, we are an anchor in the bustling downtown business district, bringing a new level of quality and service to the Petaluma experience for both visitors and locals alike.

Upon completion of the renovation, the 5-story hotel will boast over 90 guest rooms with upscale amenities, a grand lobby with courtyard entrance, and elegant event spaces well-suited for both professional and social gatherings.

The newest addition to our property is the rustic tasting room for Sonoma County's own Barber Cellars. Specializing in Zinfandels and oozing with local charm, they offer 50% off tastings for hotel guests and clients.

Hotel Petaluma features a beautiful 1900-square-foot ballroom and a 950-square-foot boardroom. Both rooms feature fully restored hardwood floors and windows, and period architectural detail. The hotel lobby features a wine bar and fireplace lounge, the perfect spot for unwinding or making new connections.

Event rentals always include room setup, tables with tablecloths, and chairs with chair covers. Catering, A/V, and other event services are currently provided by an esteemed group of preferred professionals. We will gladly assist in the coordination of all desired services for your event and refer you to our favorite caterers, event planners, and other event specialists based on your specific needs.

All our rooms are outfitted with free wireless internet, flat-screen televisions, cable with sports package, and king/queen beds with plush linens and bath amenities. Additional amenities include in-room Keurig coffee makers, irons and ironing boards, hairdryers, and clock radios. The Hotel is also pet friendly, for an additional fee.

Hotel Petaluma is centrally located in the historic downtown district of Petaluma, on the corner of Kentucky and Washington streets. Guests are just steps away from the best restaurants, cafes, boutiques, nightlife and entertainment.

Chartered in 1858 along the banks of the Petaluma River, Petaluma is one of California's oldest cities. During the Gold Rush the river carried locally grown produce, poultry and dairy products to feed the rapidly exploding populations of San Francisco and Oakland. It was spared much of the destruction of the 1906 earthquake so Petaluma boasts buildings whose foundations were laid a century-and-a-half ago and whose facades are some of the best examples of iron-front architecture in the entire United States. Downtown Petaluma was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1995 and is today home to more than 600 businesses and 65 historical properties.

The hotel also boasts proximity to the following Northern California attractions:
*Over 400 Wineries in Sonoma County
*Eclectic shopping and dining from “fun to fine” all just steps away
*Petaluma River with picturesque footbridge and water sports
*Premium Outlet Mall just minutes away
*35 miles to Napa Valley wineries and historic sites
*25 miles to Bodega Bay and the Pacific Ocean
*25 miles to Muir Woods and Armstrong Redwoods Parks
*40 miles to San Francisco
