My wife and I spent a couple of days in Les Mars for the weekend of the Santa Rosa Ironman. It's a very nice small boutique hotel with a family feeling. All the staff was very attentive and nice to us. We even got directions for a running route. The Healdsburg town is very nice as well, and you'll find...

Wonderful, classic hotel which is the perfect place to come home to after a day of wine tasting. Lovely décor, polished and professional staff. Staying here was an indulgence. As other reviews have said, there is some noise in the morning as crews clean the streets and pick up garbage, but if you live in an urban area, this will...

Beautiful little hotel with great service. This little hotel surpassed our expectations both in accommodations and service. The location in Healdsburg is walking distance to all the great restaurants as well.

This was our 6th stay at a Relais & Châteaux property, from California to New Zealand...all are so very nice. Our first was in Carmel By The Sea, L'Auberge, just down the coast from Les Mars. It too was small with not a lot of rooms, however a bit more welcoming and accommodating than Hotel Les Mars. Les Mars was...

On a prior trip on the recommendation of a business associate, we detoured to spend a few hours in Healdsburg. We really enjoyed the downtown area, and vowed to return. We had that opportunity in January and made the most of our three days and two nights by staying at Hotel Les Mars. We could not have been happier with...

This is one of the most peaceful hotels - rooms are well appointed, luxurious, very private and quiet. It feels like a French chateau, yet is in the heart of Healdsburg next door to a variety of restaurants, bars, etc. Service is impeccable as well. Perfect as a romantic getaway for a couple. Highly recommend this boutique hotel if you...

Thank you! Yes, with only 16 well appointed rooms we are always a fairly peaceful hotel. We are still in downtown Healdsburg so there are some things we can't escape but with a fireplace, the rain pattering on the roof and streets, this is one of my favorite times of the year. The value is better now than at any...

What a delightful find in little old Healdsburg. One of the nicest rooms we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed in some great places. Located very close to the square in Healdsburg and its many galleries and restaurants, you can park your car (free, but on the street) and leave it.

Hands down, this is the best place we have stayed in either Napa or Sonoma over the years! Comfort and service are their top priority!

This is a very charming, European-style boutique hotel right in the center of Healdsburg. The plastered walls and marble desk make the simple but beautiful lobby special. They keep the staff small but very attentive. We stayed 3 nights in a 3rd floor king room with a gorgeous canopy bed and vaulted ceilings. I loved that the windows opened and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Opened in May 2005 and created by the Mars family, Hotel Les Mars brings the elegance and unobtrusive service of the finest European family hotels to Northern California. The Mars family follows the philosophy that patrons should be treated more like visiting friends than guests, and upon entering the lobby, visitors are welcomed to the warm smiles of the hotel staff, unique 17th and 18th century antiques, and a comfort found only at the home of a very good friend.Hotel Les Mars represents a unique family project, a labor of love, and a new dimension of sophisticated, luxury lodging in wine country. Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report, the definitive guide to luxury travel, commented that "Les Mars now sets the standard for luxury accommodations in Sonoma." ... more   less
