Here is a Google Maps link to our address.
The Arlene Francis Center is located at 99 (W.) Sixth Street at the corner of Wilson St. bordering Railroad Square and the West End neighborhood, on the west side of 101 and downtown Santa Rosa. It’s in the 95401 zip. For those who know Santa Rosa, it’s one block north of A’Roma Roasters, also Hotel La Rose and the old train station; just 2 doors down from Chop’s/The DeMeo Teen Center on Sixth St.
If one is driving, take Hwy 101 to the Downtown Santa Rosa exit from either N or S directions. We are just a few blocks from that exit.
From 101 heading North: After exiting at Downtown Santa Rosa, go left on either 3rd St. or 5th St. Go 2 blocks to Wilson St & turn right. Go 1 to 3 blocks to 6th St. and turn left. We are on the NW corner.
From 101 heading South: After exiting at Downtown Santa Rosa/Exit #489, you merge onto Davis St, then turn right on 6th St. Cross over Wilson. We are on the right.
While our own parking is somewhat limited, there is ample street parking in the neighborhood. There is also a large parking lot at the Santa Rosa Plaza at 5th & Morgan Streets just on the east side of 101, several blocks away.
Caution: Do not park in the A’Roma Roasters/Hotel La Rosa parking lot located on Wilson Street between the Arlene Francis Center and A’Roma Roasters. The owners of this lot are very strict. You will be fined and your car will be towed, costing more than $350.
Most of the buses into town take you to the Santa Rosa Transit Mall, which is also about 7 blocks away, on the east side of 101. Here is a google maps link showing you the relationship between the transit mall and the Center.
There is a Santa Rosa CityBus (#3) from the Transit Mall to the corner of Sixth & Wilson Streets (you can ask driver to stop there). [Click on Route 3 to download pdf of schedule.]
I recommend using the trip planner on 511.org for those needing advice on public transit options from their location.
