This was our first trip to Napa Valley. I had checked into staying at other hotels that would have cost much more (Meadowood, Auberge, and Calistoga Ranch), but chose to save money and stay here. This was a wise decision since going to wineries, fabulous restaurants, hot air ballooning, and sightseeing kept us away from the hotel for most of the days. We did make time in the late afternoons to relax by the quiet pool and enjoy the wonderfully landscaped grounds. Personally, I liked that the resort is small, private, quiet, and shaded. We weren't looking for a spa or golf course, arriving after spending 5 days at Pebble Beach, so if you are seeking more on-site activities then this may not be the hotel for you. Location-wise, it is perfect -- on the southern edge of St. Helena. We had a pleasant complimentary breakfast (hot food though is limited to quiche and oatmeal). There are so many fabulous restaurants and markets close by that we didn't mind not having on-site lunch or dinner. One day, rental bikes were delivered to the hotel and we leisurely biked to nearby wineries -- very fun. We loved our first hot air balloon ride. Book through the concierge for lower price and front door pick-up. Eat at Mustard's for lunch. Take a tour to learn the fascinating history of the nearby Rubicon Estate. Our dining experience on the terrace of Auberge du Soleil was near perfection. Overall, the hotel was a very good experience offering a quiet and relaxing experience, large clean rooms, lush gardens, and a great central location.
