Mission Inn named business of the year

Employees have something to celebrate this week at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa. The Sonoma Valley Chamber of Commerce has named the luxurious hotel “Business of the Year,” making it the first hotel to receive the award.

The resort is being recognized not only for its excellence in lodging, but also for its leadership and community service in the Valley.

“It’s awesome,” said resort spokeswoman Michelle Heston on receiving the award. “We are honored and we are proud and excited, and very humbled.”

The resort’s rich history can be traced back to the Native Americans who used the same sacred mineral waters found in the 40,000-square-foot European spa today.

The hotel struggled through the Depression but regained prosperity after a Grass Valley hotelier bought it in 1933.
