Hubby and I were looking for a place to stay for the Memorial Weekend Holiday as we had a weekend full of activities and had not yet had the chance to look at lodging. We were able to get a great rate through Expedia (better than a lot of crappy properties, and better than the nearby Marriott) for La Residence. I was particularly excited as I've heard great things about it.
We ended up in Napa early for our full day of tastings. On a whim, we called La Residence to see if they could accommodate an early check in (thinking this would never happen), and they were able to get us in before 10 AM. WOW. Particularly for Napa - wow, and with a smile.
The room was lovely, but a bit smallish. You're not allowed to use the fire place in May (not that we wanted to, but it's a romantic notion, isn't it?), FYI. The bed is very comfortable bed and has nice high threadcount linens. Our bathroom was small (shower only in our room) and had nice smelling Molton Brown toiletries. Antique or antique looking furnishings added a nice vibe. The TV was a small flat screen, but the hotel does not offer on-demand movies. They did, however, have a small selection of movies to check out at the front desk.
The breakfast room is nice, but nothing special. They have an area for serve yourself coffee, tea, juice and pastries. You choose a table, and then the server will come take your order (choice of one of the two hot entrees of the day - changing daily, and fruit).
The property is owned by the same folks who own Hall Winery on 29, and they offer a daily afternoon wine tasting which you can sample their wines. We never made it due to the timing - we were either hitting the last open wineries or heading off to earlier dinner reservations.
There is a pool on property, but we did not use it - the heater was out. Given our weather was pretty cool for that time of year, we probably wouldn't have swam anyway. We did, however, use the hot tub - nice, not too hot, maybe 10 feet across, and all to ourselves.
All in all, lovely property. Good location. This property is a lovely and quiet (despite being just off 29), and a good value for your money (particularly in comparison to many of the other Napa properties out there).
