Set on a knoll above Santa Rosa, Hilton Sonoma has the best view in town. The vista takes in the city’s landmark red Round Barn. The low-key design of wooden buildings, spread out over a series of terraces and connected by staircases and arcades, creates a casual, resort-like ambiance.

Nectar lawn can host a small wedding for 70 and looks out over the hotel’s sweeping city view. Harvest Meadow, another ceremony location near the pool with views if Russian River Valley can accommodate larger ceremony for up to 300 guests. For wedding receptions our Sonoma ballroom is most popular with its steeply sloping ceiling of dark knotty pine and adjoining terrace with beautiful views of Russian River Valley. It accommodates wedding receptions for up to 150. Golden Gate and Nagasawa Ballrooms can accommodate up to 250 guests for wedding reception.

The Hilton’s pricing is very competitive, so the high caliber of their food comes as a nice surprise. Couples who have their reception here are invariably impressed with the cuisine and the service, and give both excellent reviews. Some brides have reported that their guests raved about their dining experience for months after the wedding. Read less

Lisa Amick who was there temporarily, and Stephanie Vieira were both great to work with. Stephanie made the transition very easy, she was helpful and accommodating which helped us when the anxiety level was high close to the date.
Jamie Lau and his crew who worked during the reception were excellent as well.
Over all, we were very happy how everything went very smoothly.

Before I talk about the event, let me discuss the location. We have stayed at the Hilton Sonoma Wine Country several times in addition to this event, and we will continue to visit. The location is great- right in the heart of the Sonoma Wine country. The facility is superb- from the restaurant with great views, pleasant location adjacent to the Round Barn, nice rooms and comfortable pool and spa area. Even if not planning an event, this is a place to visit.

For this Wedding, I was the Wedding Planner. The bride and groom lived outside the US, and I was the on-site coordinator. This started with finding the venue, and Lindsay and team made this very easy. All information I needed was provided quickly and accurately. A good sign at the start.

The value was great. The selection of a menu was inclusive of the venue rental, and the various menus were very reasonably-priced. We got what the bride and groom wanted at a price that fit their budget. The hotel also provided an attractive event rate for guests and several stayed to enjoy the Hilton Sonoma hospitality.

You might expect that, with arrangements and planning going so smoothly, it couldn't get any better. But it did. When we got there we had space to use for preparation and everyone at the hotel were helpful when we needed this or that. On the day of the wedding, the staff were cheerful, available and helpful. Many last minute things happen at a wedding, and they all simply got handled. They made my job as Wedding Coordinator much simpler than I had expected.

You might read a 5-star review and think that it's exaggerated. Not so this time. On a previous visit to the Hilton Sonoma, upon checkout, when I typically have some suggestion for a hotel's improvement, I told the agent that I simply had nothing to suggest. The same was true of this Wedding experience.

We had a truly beautiful experience having our reception at the Hilton Wine Country in Santa Rosa. Working with Lindsay was a seamless and terrific experience. I knew from the start I could trust her keen eye for detail and that everything going go smoothly the day of the party with her there. I also feel like the venue was extremely affordable for what you get.

I was thoroughly blown away by the selections and diversity of the menus and venues provided for both events. The event planner did an outstanding job of making sure all of the details were handled. Even things I would never thought of were mentioned and handled. Our rehearsal dinner for 20, wedding for 50, and reception with dinner for 50 was outstanding! THANK YOU Hilton Sonoma Wine Country.

Lindsay Doughty-Darrimon and the Hilton Sonoma Wine Country were absolutely amazing to work with and ultimately our wedding weekend was astounding and special. As a destination wedding, Lindsay worked with us via telephone throughout the entire planning process to ensure everything from lodging to transportation to all of the weekend activities went smoothly and perfectly. Our wedding was absolutely spectacular; with the food and wine tasting amazing, and the entire setting an unforgettable venue.

Lindsay at the Hilton Sonoma Wine Country was very helpful and professional. She catered to our needs. The food was outstanding. Although, the food tasting was the hardest part because we enjoyed every single dish they made and wanted all of them, but everyone was beyond happy with the entrees and appetizers that we chose. The indoor/outdoor banquet room was perfetct for the guests that wanted to get some fresh air, but didn't want to leave the party. The six hours that we had for our reception (time that is included in the price) allowed our guests to relax and enjoy themselves without feeling rushed. The wait staff were very professional and made sure all the guests had what they needed.

I lived in Pennsylvania and I was able to plan my wedding and reception with my Husband who lived in Santa Rosa California, and Lindsey on line and over the phone. Lindsey and the staff were so helpful. The staff was there the day of our wedding till the end helping preparing and directing and setting up our special day. They were also very helpful in pricing and planning meals and ideas for our special day. They were very helpful in giving us names of different venders to choose from that were also perfect. It was the most beautiful and perfect wedding. We could not have ask for a more perfect place than the Hilton Sonoma Wine Country. Thank you Lindsey and thank you Hilton Sonoma Wine Country. Barbara & Michael Montgomery.
