Where to stay when visiting the wine country with your family

Embarking on Elegance: A Decade of Family Journeys with Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country

By Macaroni Kid Folsom/EDH Publisher & Editor Jessica Harrison March 23, 2024

In our ongoing quest for family-friendly travel experiences, we've refined our ability to combine style and practicality—a must for our party of six. Prioritizing a budget without compromising on quality is paramount in our travel planning. The Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country has been a consistent choice for our family over the past decade, offering pristine amenities and a warm, welcoming ambiance. Our trust in the Hyatt brand has only deepened as our family has grown, and it continues to be a reliable haven, ensuring our journeys are filled with comfort and cherished moments.

Arriving unexpectedly at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Rosa, conveniently situated just off Hwy 101, our last-minute check-in proved seamless. The efficiency of the check-in process was matched by the availability of accommodations suitable for our sizable family. Opting for a first-floor room, a choice we occasionally make to mitigate the pitter-patter of our little ones' energetic footsteps, our stay began with both convenience and consideration in mind.

A distinctive feature that set our stay apart was the integration of a 65" TV connected via Chrome Cast—a novel experience for our family. To operate the TV, we had to link our iPhone to the Chrome Cast through the shared Wi-Fi network. While this technological setup added a modern touch, it's worth noting that individuals less tech-savvy, like my mother, might find navigating the TV a bit challenging.

Our 2 Queen studio suite provided ample space for our entire family, featuring two comfortable Queen beds and a convenient sleeper sofa. A standout feature for our 12-year-old was the delightful rainfall shower. Notably, this pet-friendly hotel offers a range of amenities, including an outdoor heated pool, a 24/7 fitness center, a spacious outdoor courtyard with inviting seating, and a charming fire pit. Although the weather was a bit brisk during our visit, preventing us from indulging in the pool and outdoor games, we eagerly anticipate returning in warmer weather to fully savor all the available amenities.

The Hyatt Regency in Santa Rosa stands out as a haven for convention attendees, boasting numerous well-equipped meeting rooms and ample spaces for networking between sessions. During our stay, we stumbled upon a flyer advertising a complimentary yoga class, adding a refreshing touch to our experience. Additionally, we learned about the hotel's monthly movie nights, providing guests with even more opportunities for relaxation and entertainment beyond the convention activities.

Insider Tip: Room service was not available as of our stay (November 2022). Any food ordered can be picked up at the lounge in the lobby.
