Located in the historic town of Sonoma, just four blocks from the Plaza, MacArthur Place is in the midst of wineries, fine
dining, shops, and unique galleries. Once a prestigious address for a 300 hundred-acre vineyard and working ranch with prized horses and cattle,

pool and whirlpool to compliment the Spa at MacArthur Place, which provides the latest in massage and facial treatments.
Another excellent choice at lower cost is Courtyard Sonoma / Novato which has all of the hallmarks of Marriott service and value - often at prices dramatically below B&B's in the area.
