Reliable sources indicate a third hotel is now targeting the plaza location where the Bank of America stands between Chase and the Feed Stores West Napa Street & 1st Street West.
In addition to the highly controversial Darius Anderson Chateau Sonoma-Index Tribune hotel that sparked Measure B slated for the November ballot, there were also reports of the Healdsburg hotel mogul plotting a hotel south on Broadway at the car dealership near MacArthur Hotel owned by Suzanne Brangham former Director of failed Sonoma Valley Bank.
This makes no less than three hotels in the works bombarding the Plaza that would be expected to gum up traffic and destroy our small town charm.
It's unknown who the sponsor is nor how many rooms are contemplated however its set for 3-stories and parking structure underground.
Given the proximity to the Index Tribune project really begs the question the traffic impact on such a busy corner frankly some consider "the" bottleneck of Sonoma and the main passageway from the plaza up Route 12 into the heart of the valley.
