Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Located in beautiful Sonoma wine country on a charming European-style property
  • Two outdoor heated saline pools, a steam room, and Jacuzzi
  • Spacious and luxurious guest rooms with balconies and fireplaces
  • Wine bar, and restaurant that uses locally grown ingredients
  • Relaxing full-service spa with unique vinotherapy treatments
  • Free fresh and delicious breakfast
  • Rooms have flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and free Wi-Fi
  • Room perks include plush robes and slippers, and gourmet snacks
  • Some rooms have bathrooms with huge dual-head walk-in showers, and large view-oriented Jacuzzi tubs

Cons

  • No elevators (and there are three stories)
  • No on-site fitness center (free access to one off-site)

Bottom Line

Kenwood Inn and Spa is located in Sonoma County, but the hotel and grounds evoke beautiful Tuscany. The European-style property impresses with its lush gardens and courtyards, and exquisite fountains and pools. The 29 private and spacious rooms are individually decorated with romantic Mediterranean-inspired decor, and are furnished with cozy fireplaces, quality Italian linens, oversize showers, and personal balconies (some with stunning vineyard views). Extensive freebies (such as in-room drinks and gourmet snacks), plush robes, and an ultra-luxurious spa help ensure that guests feel pampered. The hotel’s free breakfast has an array of fresh juices, homemade granola and pastries, and special cooked-to-order dishes, while its restaurant serves local cuisine using ingredients from local ranchers, cheese makers, and farmers. All in all, it's one of the best romantic boutique picks in Sonoma Wine Country -- though it's also worth considering Bungalows 313, located in the downtown Sonoma.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Located in Kenwood in beautiful Sonoma County

Kenwood Inn and Spa is located near Kenwood, a tiny town north of Glen Ellen in beautiful Sonoma Wine Country. The hotel is right off of the two-lane Sonoma Highway, and surrounded by picturesque vineyards. Numerous wineries, Boyes Hot Springs, and downtown Sonoma are all within easy driving distance.

Sonoma County is one of the world's best wine-growing regions, with hundreds of wineries sprawling over rolling hills. It's a little less touristy than Napa, and more laid-back, with family-owned wineries and less crowded towns. It's best known for Sonoma Valley, a region in the southeastern part of the county that's home to the city of Sonoma, Glen Ellen, and Boyes Hot Springs, but there are great wineries elsewhere in the county as well. The charming town of Healdsburg in the wine growing region Dry Creek Valley is a popular destination.

  • 25-minute drive to Sonoma Valley Airport
  • 6-minute drive to Bouverie Wildflower Preserve
  • 8-minute drive to Oakmont Golf Course
  • 11-minute drive to Boyes Hot Springs
  • 11-minute drive to Robert Hunter Winery
  • 15-minute drive to Sonoma State Historic Park
  • 15-minute drive to downtown Sonoma
  • 19-minute drive to Jack London Historic State Park
  • 44-minute drive to Napa Valley
  • 60-hour drive to Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve
  • 80-minute drive to San Francisco
