Planned Healdsburg hotel stirs debate

At five stories, the 75-room luxury hotel proposed for downtown Healdsburg would be the tallest building in the city, with sweeping views from the roof-top restaurant and swimming pool.

The "boutique" hotel with an art gallery and cafe on the ground floor aims to make a grand statement, projecting it as "one of the most important destinations of downtown Healdsburg."

Representatives for The Kessler Collection, a Florida-based hotel company, spelled out the details in a prospectus submitted to the city.

Located a half-block south of the town plaza on the east side of Healdsburg Avenue, it would add more upscale lodging for the tourist haven, with a health spa, "state-of-the-art" meeting rooms and fitness center.

Kessler plans to market to the vacation and tourist element, but also aims to capture group and corporate business, including some of "the world's best companies during the week."
