“A great place!”
Reviewed 20 July 2005

This hotel is great! I wasn't sure what to make of it based on the information I'd been given (B&B or hotel), but I'm very glad we chose the Hotel D'Amici. It's right on the main drag in Calistoga and you can walk to tons of stores and restaurants...even a winery or two. I would venture to say that this place is more hotel like, than B&B like. There isn't a check in desk. You simply walk up to your room, and your key will be inside. The room was super clean, with a great little bathroom and huge tub and even a separate living area. A bottle of wine and some water was also in the fridge when we checked. A nice perk! Plus, they leave a continental breakfast outside your door in the morning which was great for the two of us (3 pastry type items, OJ, jams/cream cheese/etc, a couple pieces of fruit and the newspaper). I would definitely recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to stay again next time we're in the area.

Great place to stay!!

The wood floors, down comforter and gas fireplace we nice touches to the perfect location. The bathroom was thoughtfully made and large. I'm 6'4" and rarely fit under most hotel showers, but this place was one of few exceptions. The entire place was comfortable and complete with couch, air, etc.

The stairs lead right off of the main drag in Calistoga which was convenient. The place has more of an apartment feel w/o a front desk or onsite staff but we never felt the need for either. It was dead quiet and felt very private.

We've stayed twice. The first time the both of us dined @ The French Laundry (awesome) and the second for just a quiet weekend.

I would definately recommend this place to anyone visiting the area without hesitation.

We were fortunate to secure a last minute, holiday cancellation for the suite in the rear of the building. Management was courteous and gave us a great deal. Overall we had a pleasant, enjoyable stay in spite of a few problems, which kept this from being a wonderful experience.

The hotel is located in the middle of the main street in Calistoga, and is very appealing from the outside. Unfortunately, we did not receive any instructions on how to get into the hotel when we first arrived as the main entrance is kept locked. As a result, we were very confused upon arrival. We finally called the number on the door, and were connected to the answering service. They didn't seem to know what to do either, but eventually were able to give us the code to enter the hotel.

There are two very large staircases up to the rooms, which should be kept in mind for anyone with ambulatory issues. The stairway and hallway areas are bright, clean, and modestly adorned.

We loved the decor and feel of the suite we had. A combination of rustic charm, antiquarian simplicity and contemporary Italian style.
Hardwood floors, colorful down comforter, beautiful wood furnishings, and a most stylish bathroom with separate toilet room. The hotel provides an excellent selection of coffess and teas, and you also receive a bottle of Rutherford wine and couple of bottles of water.
There also is an attractive collection of toiletry products.

But there also were some problems. Although there is a wonderful two person bathtub with rain forest shower head, the hot water in the bathtub/shower was not working consistently. We had to use the coffee pot to finish filling up the bathtub with hot water from the sink. The shower was very relaxing and pleasing when the hot water was fully operational.

The hotel provides a very nice breakfast package with juice, pastries, bagel and fruit. Unfortunately, ours did not arrive until well after 9:00am although it is advertised for 8:30. When we called the answering service to inquire, we were treated very rudely.

Finally, we had the most amazing experience of having a completely naked woman walk into our room at 5:30 in the morning!! We were assured by management that this has never happened before, and in retrospect we found the incident quite comical as it was New Year's Eve and we were situated next to two rooms filled by a wedding party. We suggest locking your door even though there is no reason not to feel perfectly safe in that building.

When we brought these problems to the attention of management when we returned home, we were treated very respectfully and generously. And we trust that management will follow-up on the various issues we encountered.

In short, a unique arrangement bringing together some of qualities of hotels and B&Bs. This property has a lot going for it, and it has even more potential. Some of the problems occur from not having on-site management, though there is an on-site Inn Keeper. The reliance on an answering service, particulary an ill-infomed one, is unfortunate. All that being said, we certainly look forward to returning and would recommend it to friends.
