Santa Rosa welcomes new Hotel E, an upscale boutique property in the heart of downtown featuring 39 guest rooms, a lobby wine bar, and an abundance of unique meeting spaces.
Hotel E's Empire Room offers 18-foot coffered ceilings, large arched windows to welcome natural light, state-of-the-art AV equipment, wireless internet capabilities and can accommodate small groups of five, board meetings up to 25, and 40 for a seated dinner. "Ideally, we see this space being used for retreats, board meetings, and strategy meetings, as well as small intimate wedding receptions," says Debi Dobley, director of sales.
Located just steps from Santa Rosa's restaurants and shops and 15-30 minutes from local winers, the Russian River and the Sonoma Coast, Hotel E is centrally located for groups to explore the city.
"When it comes to team-building, we have so many options—how about a wine blending competition or a scavenger hunt around Old Courthouse Square? We have partnered with local companies to help facilitate these types of experiences," Dobley says.
Dobley says they pride themselves on ensuring that their guests experience exceptional service, meaning meeting planners can rest assured their attendees will be taken care of.
"We have transformed the historic Empire Building into a unique, boutique hotel. Our small, sophisticated space—along with our history—is like nothing else in the area. That, coupled with exceptional service, makes for a memorable experience, and our downtown address puts our guests in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country," she adds.
