The Official Healdsburg Lodging Guide 2020: Top Healdsburg Hotels, Inns and Bed and Breakfasts
As the de facto capital of northern Sonoma Wine Country, Healdsburg has a variety of different lodging options. The best hotels in Healdsburg are included in our Healdsburg Lodging Guide 2020, which features all the amenities and average prices for Healdsburg hotels, bed and breakfasts and inns on one convenient sheet to help you make decisions on where to stay in Healdsburg. Most of these accommodations are intimate—smaller properties with personalized touches and exceptional attention to detail. All properties offer complimentary wifi and many include breakfast as well. Two-night minimum stays are often required during peak season, so it pays to book in advance.
One new Healdsburg hotel is included in the list with a projected opening date. There are also several Airbnbs in Healdsburg, from picturesque wine country cottages to luxurious estates, but we are limiting this guide to multi-unit lodging businesses. You’ll also notice our list of B&Bs is short as well; budget properties were excluded, and some Healdsburg B&Bs include the word “inn” in their name, so we moved them to the inn category of the chart.
In addition to these best places to stay in Healdsburg, the surrounding area is home to a number of upscale properties worth exploring and experiencing, too. Among those on that list: the Farmhouse Inn & Spa in Forestville, the Applewood Inn in Guerneville, the Geyserville Inn in Geyserville, and the hotel at Graton Resort & Casino in Rohnert Park.
Stay tuned for annual Healdsburg Lodging Guide updates.

Located in the heart of downtown Healdsburg, Bella Luna is usually booked solid for months in advance, but it’s worth a try to check availability. The historic property has just four accommodations–three suites and one cottage–and was originally built in the early 1900s. The owners love hosting guests and providing a lovely, hot breakfast. The fanfare shows in their TripAdvisor reviews. Rates start at $285 per night.
Towering over the reservoir on the Simi Winery property, this Healdsburg bed and breakfast recreates an Italian-countryside vibe from its hilltop on a residential cul-de-sac. Inside, each of the five rooms has a different theme from around the world. Breakfasts are legendary; the evening cocktail hour is also a nice touch.
Everything revolves around the gardens at this circa-1873 Italianate farmhouse in the country outside of Healdsburg. Breakfast comprises a bounty of fruits and vegetables, freshly picked on-site, and some of the best walks on property are through the manicured grounds. The inn is a short drive north of the Healdsburg Plaza.
Owned by the Wilson wine family, this Queen Anne Victorian home dates back to 1902 and features a mix of vintage decor rooms and more contemporary remodeled lodging options. The property has a lush garden and is surrounded by trees, making it feel very secluded even though you are in the Healdsburg city limits and only a half-mile walk from the Plaza. The Healdsburg inn has 10 rooms, and offers a hot, gourmet breakfast and a bottle of wine at check-in. TripAdvisor reviewers mention wine and appetizers sometimes served in the main parlor room.
This circa-1869, salmon-colored Italianate Victorian is named after the more than 50 camellia plants that accent its gardens. The inn offers nine rooms in the main house, as well as five vacation rentals nearby. All guests have access to the on-site pool and on-site spa services, as well as a full and hearty breakfast and an evening wine-and-cheese hour in the parlor.
The largest of hotels in Healdsburg—163 rooms in all—sits under the Best Western flag, though it is more upscale than just about every other Best Western in the country. Located right off the Highway 101 near a gas station and diner, the property is designed with an Italian flair, and the rooms reflect this vibe. The hotel has a private pool, and is walking distance to downtown–though the street (Grove) is somewhat busy and doesn’t have sidewalks in some parts. An on-site restaurant is open 24 hours.
Think of Duchamp like a secret enclave; a klatch of six luxury standalone cottage suites, tucked away behind Healdsburg SHED, steps from the Healdsburg Plaza. Suites are modern and ascetic; hotel grounds feature a lap pool and various pieces of modern art. It’s a truly unique Healdsburg lodging experience. Complimentary breakfast and Wi-Fi included with every stay.
The signature experience at this circa-1900 Queen Anne Victorian inn is a downstairs speakeasy where guests can taste local wines every afternoon. The three-course breakfasts are pretty memorable, too. The property is located a half-mile from the Healdsburg Plaza, in a part of town formerly known as Nob Hill.
Eco-friendly H2 prides itself on an approachable vibe—somewhere between Bohemian and European. All of the 36 rooms in this Healdsburg hotel are sleek but not sparingly so; the lobby, which opens to Spoonbar restaurant, is warm and welcoming. Guests enjoy a small lap pool out back, as well as regular yoga classes. An undulating living roof also is something worth seeing.
Without question, the rooftop bar and terrace is the coolest part of Healdsburg’s newest downtown hotel, which opened in late 2018. “The Rooftop,” as it’s known, is best in warm weather, when you can eat light bites and sip craft cocktails while looking down on the hubbub around town. The 39-room Healdsburg hotel was named after the town’s founder, Harmon Heald, and was designed to create an intimate experience for guests. The private Creekside deck is a particularly great spot to unwind. Rooms boast a variety of locally made products, from Sipsong Spirits gin to pillows and blankets from Treko. The HGH is connected via private walkway to the H2 Hotel, its sister property.
This Healdsburg bed and breakfast sits in the city’s oldest neighborhood. Dating back to the late 1800s, the Queen Anne Victorian features nine rooms with period décor, as well as free Wi-Fi. Breakfast is included every morning. Located just three blocks from the downtown Healdsburg Plaza.
This 12-room inn comprises the top floors of a circa-1901 building right on the Healdsburg Plaza. In summer, you can hear Tuesday night concerts from anywhere on property. A breakfast buffet and evening wine and cheese reception are served in a private function room overlooking town. (Don’t miss the morning enchiladas and strata casserole.) Most accommodations have claw-foot tubs.
Few experiences start the day better than breakfast on the Honor Mansion’s outdoor patio overlooking a koi pond. Thirteen rooms and suites stretch from the main house on Grove Street to the back of the expansive property, which comprises a pool, a croquet lawn, a putting green, tennis courts, and a basketball court. The mansion in a short walk from downtown Healdsburg.
This signature downtown Healdsburg hotel celebrated its tenth anniversary with a recent refresh on all 56 rooms, breathing new life into one of the city’s most iconic spots. A full-service spa backs up to a hip and exclusive pool. Along Healdsburg Avenue, Charlie Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen and Pizzando offer a variety of food choices. Guests can use house cruiser bicycles to explore Healdsburg wine country.
A member of Relais & Chateaux, this downtown Healdsburg hotel atop Chalkboard Restaurant captures French style and delivers it with elegance. Its 16 rooms are accented with 17th and 18th-century antiques, guests receive complimentary breakfast and wine-and-cheese tastings, and the walnut-paneled library is a great spot to unwind with a juicy book.
This modern 122-room property features all suites and is located a few miles north of downtown Healdsburg, just a short walk or bike ride from the first wineries along the Dry Creek Valley wine trail. Each king, queen or one-bedroom suite features a full, modern kitchen and a living room with sofa, television and desk. One room on the ground floor has two tremendous bunk beds and can comfortably sleep eight. Complimentary hot breakfast is included, and regular shuttle service takes guests to downtown Healdsburg. There’s even a bocce ball court (with balls that light up at night!) and a robot named Rosé that delivers amenities.
Eight acres of private and landscaped gardens highlight this oasis in the hills at the mouth of the Dry Creek Valley. None of the 22 rooms at Madrona Manor has a television, forcing guests to disconnect and slow down. The on-site restaurant is a great place to spend a romantic evening. This Healdsburg inn also offers complimentary breakfast and a heated swimming pool. Located just outside of town, Madrona Manor is walking distance from downtown Healdsburg, but the road is very busy, there are no sidewalks and crossing under the Highway 101 overpass is required.
Staying in one of the five Japan-inspired rooms atop the Michelin-starred SingleThread restaurant is a lot like staying in the owners’ home. Chef Kyle Connaughton prepares breakfast for every guest; his wife, Katina, curates all of the amenities and touches in the rooms. The result is a bespoke Healdsburg lodging experience at the far reaches of luxury and comfort.
Named one of the most anticipated hotel openings of 2020 by Elite Traveler, the Montage–Healdsburg’s first resort–is located a few miles north of downtown Healdsburg, bordering one of the best Healdsburg wineries for food lovers: Jordan. The Healdsburg hotel’s website still features artist rendering photos of the modern-yet-natural environmentally focused design, but they are ambitious and enticing for luxury travelers. In addition to 130 bungalow-style rooms and suites each with outdoor living spaces, there will be a world-class spa, two restaurants focusing on local ingredients, and a bar surrounded by woodlands and vineyards. Rumored to be opening in fall 2020. Pricing to be announced.
While most visitors staying overnight in Healdsburg usually enjoy views of the city and sometimes a vineyard, River Belle Inn is one of the few Healdsburg inns located right on the historic Russian River that snakes around the backside of town. The 12-room Victorian was fully restored by its owners, beginning in 2011, including a significant addition to accommodate the rooms, which maintain the old Victorian style and charm. Guests can enjoy a hot breakfast in the dining room or on the patio, overlooking the river–depending on the weather. No pets or children under 16 are allowed, due to the direct waterfront access.
Healdsburg accommodations at this small hotel above the La Crema tasting room essentially are fancy vacation-rental apartments. They’ve got multiple bedrooms. They’re ultra-modern. They’ve got full kitchens and laundry facilities. Some even have decks. What makes the Two Thirty-Five experience particularly special is the attention to detail: Flower arrangements change every day and are grown and curated by a farmer who works for the parent company, hand soaps are from Wine Country Botanicals, and paintings are from a handful of different local artists. These rooms are perfect for families traveling with young children or couples traveling together.
