The Sandman Hotel in Santa Rosa has undergone a $3.5 million six-month renovation of its property, including upgrading its pool area.

Owner Stephen Yang will celebrate with his employees the refurbishment of the property, located at 3421 Cleveland Ave., with a re-opening ceremony on Tuesday night. Yang bought the property in October 2015.

Crews repainted the structure and put in new landscaping around the property. All 135 rooms of the hotel also have been updated. The focus, however, was primarily on a new pool house and bar where guests can order food as well as beer and wine.

Yang said he bought the property with the intention to upgrade, noting that few other local properties have done such renovations, outside of the Hyatt Vineyard Creek.

“A lot haven’t made the investments necessary to keep up a hotel,” Yang said.

In the North Coast, we are surrounded by hundreds of wineries along with some of the best breweries, cidermakers and distillers. These industries produce an abundance of drinks as well as good stories – and those are what I’m interested in writing. I also keep my eye on our growing cannabis industry and other agricultural crops, which have provided the backbone for our food-and-wine culture for generations.
