I used to know Sonoma, but when my folks passed away I stopped going there, so my knowledge is about 3 years old. I need to spend one night there in 2 weeks, and would prefer to stay at a nice hotel with a good restaurant attached or within easy walking distance.
I have a gift card for the Spa at the Lodge at Sonoma, so would consider staying there, but I really didn't like their restaurant on our last several visits*. Are there any other good restaurants (besides Saddles) in the area? Something where La Poste used to be?
Otherwise I guess we'll stay at Sonoma Mission Inn, eat at Sante, and I'll commute to my spa treatment!
Or is there anything new and outstanding that I should check out? Our preference is a menu like EDK and Cafe La Haye - lighter, modern, seasonal.
*It's not the food, as that was actually pretty good, but the darn room looks and feels like a motel coffee shop.
