Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn Highlights

With the quiet elegance of old California, the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn welcomes the guest with warmth and genuine hospitality.

The 400 seat Pavilion, used for the main tent sessions, is designed to deliver the ultimate in attendee experience in a well-designed, climate-controlled, conference center.

The 40,000 square foot spa and exercise space is ranked among Travel + Leisure’s top 25 Spas. The well trained, courteous staff welcomes individuals and couples for a special day of relaxation and rejuvenation.

A high wood beamed ceiling, a large central fireplace and comfortable chairs and sofas arranged for quiet conversation, a game of dominos or relaxing by the fireplace reading a book waiting for the evening wine tasting, make the lobby a special meeting place.

The Deluxe Rooms are done in Wine Country style and welcome guests with a fireplace or balcony.

The Vineyard Suites were renovated in 2017 and feature a fireplace and separate seating area and most have a patio or balcony. Spend a day at the Spa and then relax on your patio and read.

The Sonoma Golf Club, a vintage golf club located in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country, is a private club for members and guests of the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn. The course was designed in 1928 by Sam Whiting, architect of San Francisco’s prestigious Olympic Club Lake course.

Originally built to create a luxurious setting around the geothermal mineral springs, the property’s three pools, with water temperatures of 85, 92, and 98 degrees, offer the perfect healing environment and a feeling of bliss.
