The Luxury Bubbling hot springs and leafy vineyards surround the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa, a 226-room property established in 1927. Besides sampling the regions renowned vintages, guests can take in Sonoma Valleys fall hues while joining one of the hiking and biking trips, rejuvenating by the mineral water-fed bathhouse, or teeing off at the 18-hole championship golf course. In the evening, visitors can stop by gratis wine tastings and bed down in suites where sommelier selections and wood-burning fireplaces await.
The Catch Since the hotel has only six of these suites, availability is limited.
