A delectable poolside brunch? Salsa lessons? It may sound more like Palm Springs than Santa Rosa, unless you are fortunate to have discovered Flamingo Conference Resort and Spa, a wonderful family-owned property that was voted “Santa Rosa’s Favorite Resort and Hotel” by Press Democrat readers. The hotel offers 5 star amenities at affordable prices from fantastic Montecito Heights Health Club packages to Tattoo & Blues, America’s longest running tattoo festival. The brunch has been dubbed one of the Best Brunch Buffets by Bohemian’s Best Of editions for more than a few years. Located less than one hour from Napa Valley, Russian River and Golden Gate Bridge, this ideal central Sonoma County location provides RT #101 and #12 crossroads convenience for exploring Wine Country and the Coast Wine tasting or getaway retreat on weekdays for better value.
The best days lounging on a Poolside chaise come after exciting nights. The only hotel offering live music and dancing brings in a variety of dance bands every weekend, taking seriously its reputation as the only hotel lounge entertainment hub in the North Bay. Beginning with Thursday Night Bachata (a sexy style of Salsa from Puerto Rico) lessons included, the Flamingo Lounge pulses straight thru Sunday Night Salsa. Live regional bands known for funk, R&B and other groove tracks play the Lounge most Friday and Saturday nights. The Lounge is also the go-to destination if you’re looking for a laugh, booking nationally known comedians twice a month for an evening set before the dance floor gets into full swing ‘til late night. From Marin County’s high energy “Rewind” ensemble to the southern rock of Ricky Ray, always check the Flamingo Lounge schedule to meet locals and hotel guests.
