Our cozy little boutique hotel has the charm and ambience of a Parisian auberge, with welcoming spaces full of interesting details and the right amenities to make you feel at home. Located within only three short blocks from Petaluma's historic downtown, the Metro Hotel and Café is the ideal destination for your Northern California adventures. Whether you're catching a show at the historical Mystic Theatre, venturing off to the surrounding wine country for a wine tasting tour, or exploring Point Reyes National Seashore, the Metro Hotel is perfectly located and easy to get to! Keller Estate, with the nearest vineyards, is only 8 miles from the Metro Hotel, and you can be there in about 10 to 15 minutes. Other wineries in town are so close that you can walk there. Point Reyes National Seashore, a vast expanse of protected coastline in Marin County is only a 30-minute drive from the Metro. You can also drive to Helen Putnam Regional Park in less than 10 minutes. Quinua, the People's Choice award-winning Peruvian restaurant is right next door, serving authentic and delicious lunch and dinner. Every room in the Metro has its own private bathroom, with claw-foot tubs or showers. Some of the most comfortable beds you'll ever sleep on. We offer a completely non-smoking environment. Complimentary organic coffee, loose-leaf tea selection, muffins, and freshly-made crêpes are waiting for you in our little Café every morning. Free high-speed Wi-Fi.

I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed my stay very much. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating and the location was perfect. I will certainly return and when I do I will definitely stay there again.

The Metro is a very cost effective way to have a European experience. This is our go-to place when we visit the wine country.

What an chic and intimate little hotel. Walking distance to many restaurants, as well as the downtown area. I can't wait to come back and stay in one of the airstreams!

A wonderful boutique hotel in the sweet small town of Petaluma. My stay was brief, but very nice. I did not eat so I can not honestly rate the dining experience, but the food looked and smelled terrific. The bed was cozy. I will stay there again should I have the opportunity.

So glad we found this place!

Happy to see this little place so busy on a Sunday in October! The owner and a new employee were both friendly and helpful. Gave us a tour and let us pick between a few rooms when we got there. This made me think they wouldn't be too busy but they seemed to have several reservations. Codes on the doors and 24 hours staff on site made me feel very safe. Loved the red phone out front. It was obvious someone put some care into decorating. It's true if your main concern is food and being waited on this may not be the place for you, but if you want to feel like you are at home among friends, you will enjoy this place. Plus there are plenty of places to walk for food, coffee, drinks, movies, shopping, anything you need. We'll be back!

Great Getaway in the Wine Country

4.0 on December 02, 2012

We took our two adult children for a 3-day vacation in the wine country. The Metro Hotel exceeded our expectations. It felt like we were staying at a friends home instead of a hotel. Petaluma is a perfect location--just a 10 minute drive to Napa and Sonoma--with more than a few great restaurants and coffee shops. The Metro is a pleasant change from the run-of-the-mill hotels. We will be back!

Fun smaller hotel with a funky French accent. It's on a pretty busy street, but I didn't hear any traffic noise during our stay. Make your own Peet's drip coffee - this is an excellent idea for the morning. Will make this our go-to place to stay when we're in the area. There wasn't any dining here per se (morning pastries), but it's a required field in the review.

Charming Little Hotel

4.0 on November 28, 2011

Clean, comfortable and charmingly decorated. Tiny chairs, tiny tables, small tub, narrow walkways, narrow halls, narrow staircase, just like in France which adds to the charm of this hotel. So if you are a large person or have a lot of luggage, this may not be the hotel for you. Conveniently located to all the attractions in Napa Valley. Will definitely stay there again.
