Olea Hotel - New Sonoma Boutique Hotel

OleaHotelExterior.jpgOlea Hotel is a new boutique hotel in the heart of Sonoma wine country in the charming town of Glen Ellen. Formerly the Glenelly Inn (which closed in November 2010), Olea Hotel has undergone major renovations and reopened on August 31, 2012.  "Olea" is defined as "evergreen trees and shrubs having oily one-seeded fruits" (eg. olive tree). This is representative of the various olive trees sprinkled around the property, which are more than a hundred years old. The historical property is not only set amongst ancient olive trees, but is it also nestled into the hillside of oak trees that are over 200 years old. The setting is tranquil and idyllic.

The owners, Ashish and Sia Patel, a husband and wife partnership, bought the property in June 2011 with a vision to create a small destination hotel with unique amenities, modern guest rooms, an exceptional breakfast, and an extraordinary guest experience. This new property is already receiving wonderful press and reviews.

Originally built in the early 1900s, the property was comprised of a residence and a boarding house, serving visitors who often came from the Glen Ellen train station, just down the road on Highway 12 (formerly the railway route). In a goal to maintain its historicity, Sia and Ashish Patel conserved the overall look and feel of the buildings' exterior, while modernizing the interior.
