Many credit the Healdsburg Hotel, which opened in 2001, for placing the small ranch town on the map of internationally renowned tourist destinations. The chic 55-room hotel, which faces Healdsburg Plaza and is home to Charlie Palmer’s famous Dry Creek Kitchen and Spa Hotel Healdsburg, attracted so many visitors that in 2010 its founders opened a second, slightly larger inn. Affordable down the block: the 36-room, eco-friendly H2hotel, home to the trendy Spoonbar restaurant.
Piazza Hospitality, the Healdsburg company that built and operates the accommodations, as well as Spoonbar and Hotel Healdsburg’s new Pizzando pizzeria, now plans to open a third equally sustainable hotel in May, just two doors north. from H2hotel on Healdsburg Avenue. The 39-room Harmon guesthouse is named after the city’s founder Harmon Heald, who literally put it on the map in 1857.
