The Historic Sonora Inn Gets a Facelift
An icon of Downtown Sonora, the Sonora Inn was built in 1896 and has hosted many celebrities including Grace Kelly and Drew Barrymore. The owner, Jeff Michels, plans to mix the old with the new as he gives the Sonora Inn a refresh whilst still preserving the iconic building’s historical feel. The architecture of the building will keep its 1920s California Mission Style while the rooms and social common areas will be refreshed with new paint, furniture, and subtle modern touches. In later phases of the renovation, Michels will add a café, co-working space, and a family activity recreation room will be added at a later date..
