Completed in late 2018, the full renovation of Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country added 90 rooms for a total of 253, including six suites. Rooms and suites were restyled with new carpet and warm tones inspired by autumn in the countryside. The redesigned lobby features an eclectic layering of wood tones, brushed metals, and woven textures. Public spaces—40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space—were also reimagined and include an 80-foot water wall and 10-foot firepit.
