For Baker, it was vital for the three-story, stucco building to have tall ceilings and windows on the ground floor to create an inviting presence. Light is an important element of the overall design, flooding through French doors leading onto private balconies, under trellised walkways, or through a glass-encased, free-standing stairwell, whose center is filled with bamboo shoots. Artfully landscaped areas spill over onto public alleyways that cut across the well-kept grounds; over which steel and glass corridors are suspended, connecting different parts of the hotel.
A country retreat
Hotel Healdsburg’s newly renovated guestrooms bring freshness, calm, and purity to luxuriously modern interiors. Muted cloud paintings by Wade Hoefer and shutters and soft throw blankets in pale blue set a tranquil tone. Custom dressers and bed frames crafted of wood salvaged from ancient bay laurel trees introduce the rich organic warmth of Northern California. Most rooms have private balconies and French doors framing views of the hotel gardens, the historic town plaza, or the Sonoma countryside.
