    • best way to get to the airport

      by cargirl Online Now Jun 17, 2011 at 7:04 PM

      My fiance and I will be meeting friends in San Francisco on June 22 and driving to Napa for 2 days and then to Sonoma for another 2 days. We will have a rental car but our flights out on Ssunday are 6 hours apart with the two of us departing at 8 am and our friends at 2 pm. We are trying to come up with an alternate plan to get to the airport and leave the rental car with our friends so they can enjoy the balance of the morning. Does anyone know how if there is a car service (or shuttle) to the airport and what the aproximate cost might be?

      First time to Sonoma

      by afrdrx Online Now May 1, 2011 at 12:06 PM

      Hello all,

      I posted a similar question in the Napa forum, but my boyfriend and I (in our late 20's) are visiting both Napa and Sonoma in late August. He has been to Sonoma once before for a wedding, but it will be my first time there. We are narrowing down places to stay before diving into planning things to do. We've been looking at both vacation rentals, and hotels. We will have a rental car but also like to walk or bike if we can to avoid relying solely on the car. I've read mixed reviews about many places to stay in Sonoma, and was hoping to get some input here. I'm looking for advice on areas of town to stay, as well as specific lodging suggestions. We've looked into:

      -A few places near Boyes Hot Springs, off Sonoma Hwy

      -A couple places near East Napa St and 8th St

      -El Dorado Hotel (From what I've read...Pros: great location; Cons: lots of noise and tight on space)

      -Bungalows 313 (seems like a nice option but again, I've read some great reviews, and some terrible...has anyone stayed here that can provide some insight?)

      -Les Petites Maisons

      We prefer to be in a relatively active area of town, and are big on food & wine (hence, the trip to wine country!) Any tips on nice (and not exceedingly expensive) areas/places to stay (and things to do/places to check out, since that would be my follow-up question) would be welcome and much appreciated. Thanks!

      Client retreat in Wine Country

      by kcochran111 Online Now May 3, 2007 at 12:22 PM

      Hello, all! I desperately need your help in finding a suitable place for about 10 of us to have a working session in wine country, California. We'll be taking clients and want a spot where we can stay in an idyllic setting, have a meeting room for getting some work done, and have outdoor activities to break up our days.

      Any suggestions? Everything I'm finding is too "quaint country inn" or "honeymooner's paradise"...My clients are from L.A. so I want a pretty upscale experience.

      Thanks!

    • Wineries, restaurants, etc.

      by Geeedavey Online Now May 26, 2004 at 7:18 AM

      My wife and I will be in Sonoma County for two nights in July as part of a 10 day California trip. Can anyone recommend some wineries to visit, or restaurants? We will be staying in Petaluma but we will have a car and will probably spend most of one day driving throughout Sononma and Napa counties. We are not wine connoiseurs by any stretch of the imagination, but we have taken a few winery tours and enjoyed them (although we live in Maryland, where at last count there were a total of about 15 wineries in the state). We are looking for wineries that have a regular weekday tour and have moderatley priced wines. Also any restaurant recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any info provided.

      Looking for a driver...

      by belvie1 Online Now Jan 29, 2004 at 7:04 AM

      I'll be visiting Sonoma in May 2004 with a group of 6 people. We'll be staying at the "Inn at Sonoma". We'd like to hire a driver to take us around, but have only been able to find limos and tour buses. It seems wasteful to rent a car and then rent a limo. Does anyone know of a driver that will take us around in our rental car. Thanks for your help!! cgorglione@yahoo.com
