A new hotel to check into
Originally part of the Best Western Dry Creek Inn, the Villa Toscana building and its 60 accommodations are being updated and rebranded into a separate hotel property, The Lodge at Healdsburg. Guest rooms will feature a king bed, new furniture, wood flooring, a freestanding soaking tub, a fireplace and an assortment of other amenities. The boutique hotel is accepting reservations beginning March 2023. Part of the Tapestry Collection by Hilton, the property is pet-friendly; dogs of all sizes are welcome.

A new longterm stay option
Santa Rosa’s midcentury motor lodge The Astro is now offering apartment accommodations. Spinster Hospitality, which also owns nearby The Spinster Sisters restaurant, has purchased a neighboring building and converted it into three apartment units with a public courtyard. A pathway connects the new units to The Astro. All of the apartments feature a full kitchen; two apartments offer two bedrooms and one bathroom. The third apartment boasts four bedrooms and two bathrooms. A seven-day minimum stay is required.

New hotel amenities
Thanks to charming updates in 2022 to all 12 cottages and the restaurant at Nick’s Cove, there were already plenty of incentives to get a coastal getaway on the calendar. But with 2023 comes the news that all cottage guests now have access to complimentary kayaks. Just tell the innkeeper when you’re ready to get out on Tomales Bay and they’ll take care of the rest.
