The Fairmont Mission Inn and Spa

It was a pleasure to stay at The Fairmont Mission Inn and Spa. I was there for 4 days and what an incredible experience. As usual I look for the food quality, the service and the accommodations. It was incredible all around! The grounds were clean, I was able to shoot so much there. The food, the staff, the way they accommodate the clients was really above and beyond.  I hope I get the opportunity to go to other Fairmont and see if the service and accommodations are up to the standards.

The Spa accommodations were great, and the staff there very kind.

Here are couple of photos I took there. A must stay if you are going to Sonoma!

















The Inn at the Tides, Bodega Bay

As a world traveller and photographer, I like to recognize places where we travel, where we stay, and where I believe we were treated above and beyond the minimum.

Located in Bodega Bay, The Inn at the Tides is by the ocean and very convenient to Sonoma County and Marin County.

This hotel is about 40 miles north of San Francisco.

We went there on the weekend of President’s Day and Valentine’s day. As we left San Fransisco and took the Pacifica road 1, we were in and out of service with our phones and my reservations with Expedia did not go through over and over. I try to call the Inn at the Tides and literally each times after I introduce myself to ask if my reservation went through with Expedia, I would hit a bad service spot and the connection was lost. I must of called back at least 1o times, and the person at the front desk , never lost her patience.

When we finally were able to get an entire conversation we found out our Expedia reservation and payment as predicted had not go through. We were going to call back Expedia and the receptionist told us not to worry about it, that she would match the price we had.

We arrived late around 9pm. We were jet lag, wired, excited and hungry.

We went to our “room”. It was an absolutely incredible setting. Set as little Cottages, we were very pleased to see our rooms. We were welcomed by a complimentary bottle of wine, that was wonderful.

The pillowtop bed came with down comforters and was so comfortable.

The wireless Internet access was complimentary. We had a beautiful flat screen TV with cable programming. The very spacious bathroom had complimentary toiletries and hair dryer. There was a spa and an outdoor  pool right outside of our cottage.

Breakfast was complimentary at the Tides restaurant across from the Inn. The menu had many choices.

The restaurant was also incredible, and for those that know me, I do not easily giving compliment on a restaurant. The view on the water, very clean, good service and fresh food.

This is really a place I would recommend anybody to stay!
