The luxurious Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa has earned another top award – Fodor’s Choice Gold 2010 Award from Fodor’s Travel.

The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa has been recognized by Fodor’s Travel as a Best Resort or Destination Spa in the U.S.

This prestigious distinction represents a remarkable achievement and recognizes the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa as a leader in its field among spas located on U.S. hotel properties.

Renowned for natural mineral waters, unparalleled service and gracious accommodations, the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa, is located 40 miles north of the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge in the heart of the Sonoma Valley.

Home to the Michelin rated Santé dining room and a 40,000 square foot spa acclaimed by Travel +Leisure magazine as one of the Top 25 facilities in North America.

The Fodor’s Choice Gold 2010 award caters to travelers with a range of budgets, experiences and interests to make sure that each property listed embodies a truly authentic experience.

Fodor’s says of the resort, “The real draw at this Mission-style resort is the extensive, swanky spa, easily the biggest in Sonoma. There’s a vast array of massages and treatments, some using locally sourced grape and lavender products. (It’s a coed spa, and there are several treatments designed for couples.) The focus on fitness and rejuvenation extends to a 7,087-yard golf course winding through trees and vineyards, a changing schedule of fitness classes, and guided hiking and biking excursions each morning. The guest rooms are supremely comfortable…some have fireplaces and patios or balconies. The staff stays on top of every detail.”

Kelley Cosgrove, General Manager of the iconic Wine Country resort shares, “We are exceptionally proud of this most recent recognition from Fodor’s. With so many spa destinations available, spa guests are becoming more discerning in their choice of spa facilities and services; our team continually strives to create the ultimate spa experience.”

“From hidden-away restaurants to can’t-miss museums, Fodor’s Choice selections recognize the top sights, properties, and experiences our editors and updaters have found in their travels,” says Fodor’s publisher Tim Jarrell. “These places are the best of the best, providing a remarkable experience in their price range or category.”
