The 5-acre MacArthur Place was originally a stately 19th century farmhouse in Sonoma.
Wine mogul Bill Foley is adding MacArthur Place Hotel & Spa to his North Bay portfolio, having purchased the 5-acre resort from Arizona-based Lat33 Capital, according to a release last week from Foley Entertainment Group. The 69-room boutique lodge at 29 E. MacArthur St. in Sonoma was valued at $65.6 million, according to Sonoma County property records. A purchase price wasn’t disclosed.
Lat33 had owned the downtown Sonoma property since 2017, when it acquired the hotel from local ownership led by Sonoma developer Suzanne Brangham for $36 million. Lat33 had spent about $20 million in renovations over the past four years and had been seeking a buyer since summer of 2023. The resort also features a spa, swimming pool, conference center and restaurant.
In a statement, Bill Foley said he’s had his eye on the MacArthur Place property for a while. “MacArthur Place truly solidifies our place in this incredible wine region. It’s an iconic hotel and the completion of the recent renovation has brought the already beautiful property to the next level,” said Foley.
Last September, Foley Entertainment Group purchased a majority stake in Farmhouse Inn in Forestville. Foley’s other local holdings include Chateau St. Jean and Ferrari-Carrano wineries, as well as Chalkboard Restaurant, Hotel Les Mars, Chalkboard Restaurant and Goodnight’s Prime Steak + Spirits.
