Les Mars Hôtel
Hotel Les Mars, an intimate 16-room hotel, evokes a French maison, complete with hand-hewn-walnut wood in the library, as well as fireplaces, four-poster beds, and 18th-century antiques in all guest rooms. A member of Relais & Châteaux, the property also distinguishes itself with service. Turndown is punctuated with a small circular box of Napa Valley’s well-known Le Belge chocolates, and a romance director is on hand to arrange special evenings, from private tastings at wineries around town to rose petal turndowns. All guests receive a daily in-room French continental breakfast of fruit and fresh-baked pastries, as well as invites to daily wine-and-cheese pairings in the hotel lobby, when they can mingle with each other other travelers and, occasionally, local winemakers. Though serious oenophiles often head four miles west to explore Unti, Papapietro Perry, and other wineries in the Dry Creek Valley, the hotel is one block from Healdsburg’s downtown plaza, where there are more than 20 tasting rooms and a host of high-end boutiques.
