We just returned from a vacation in CA (June 2009) and wanted to share our vacation experience. We stayed 3 nights at the Jw in San Francisco, 2 nights at the Marriott Monterey, and 2 nights at the Lodge at Sonoma. The JW was beautiful and was conveniently located. The Marriott Monterey was nice (but, it reminded me as being an upscale Courtyard). It was, however, a great location, and the Lodge at Sonoma was a five star! We loved evervything about the Lodge and would highly recommend it. We also had a fantastic massage during our stay. If you're looking for a romantic geataway then the Lodge may be it. Thanks to Marriott for a great vacation.
