They will try to preserve as much of the wood and tile floors from the original building but not at the expense of uneven and unsafe surfaces. One cool upgrade will be taking advantage the roof top deck off
the fourth floor to a lounge area for guests to enjoy. This deck offers a prime spot with the best views of Petaluma while hanging out or hosting special occasions. This renovation will take months and maybe years given the permit processes etc… Hopes are that by the end of June progress will start to be evident.
There are other more modern undesirable improvements made over the years like this ceiling fan in the Ballroom. It will be replaced with the original ornate chandeliers.
One thing that will not be preserved is the old management that may have tarnished the reputation of the hotel in past years. Please know that Petaluma Hotel is now under new management! So whatever you
heard in the past about them is no longer. We had the great pleasure of meeting their friendly staff and they seemed dedicated to hold true what was originally intended by its founders.
Its friendly doors welcome the stranger and under its hospitable roof the friends of Petaluma find always only goodwill….
Good things are happening in this hotel that will make it THE choice place to stay for anyone visiting our city. If you know of anyone coming to visit Petaluma send them this post. If they want to get the Petaluma experience to include our history and culture this is the place to stay.
