Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn

Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn


Andrew, Espen, and I had the most magical stay at Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa this past week. It was mine and Andrew’s 3rd Anniversary and we were looking for a family friendly hotel with a pool that we could get to within an hour. Sure enough, we found Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa and it was only 30 minutes from Marin! There are so many things that make this place amazing, but the staff is by the far the key to their special sauce. Each one of their employees were kind, ready to help at any moment, and overall just happy to do their job. I compiled a list of all the reasons why we loved the Fairmont and some of the meals we ate.
