Fodor's Expert Review Hampton Inn Petaluma

450 Jefferson St., , California, 94952, USA

The former Carlson-Currier Silk Mill, its oldest section dating to 1892, houses this atypical Hampton, some of whose guest rooms have 14-foot ceilings and exposed-brick walls. Historical maps and vintage and recent Petaluma photographs decorate the rooms, done in rich gray tones that complement the red brick found in most rooms. Some standard queen rooms feel small, but the suites are spacious. Business travelers enjoy access to photocopying and a few other amenities. A plentiful buffet is laid out each morning in the mill's former dye room, a contender for the chain's classiest breakfast venue.
