We stayed one night at the Wydown because we wanted to visit a few wineries on foot. We had stayed at the Andaz in downtown Napa the night before, so our expectations were high.
With an AAA discount, our one night's stay was around $400 (similar but more than the Andaz). We knew it would be high because we were visiting during peak season, but we expected a lot for such a price.
The room we were in had a door to a balcony that looked like it was shared by another room. There was a small table and two chairs, but there was no point in sitting out there when bars and restaurants were within walking distance of the hotel. The bed was large and the bathroom was a good size, but the room felt sterile. A few nonalcoholic beverages were available for free, the bathroom amenities were nice (including makeup remover, Qtips, etc.), and the overall space in the room was more than enough. However, for $400 I expect more. I expect staff who are willing to bend over backwards to help you (when we asked for lunch suggestions they looked at each other and said they didn't have much to recommend) and a room that is much more luxurious than this one was.
I didn't notice noise like other reviewers but it might be because our room was at the end of a hallway.
I would recommend staying here if you want to be in St. Helena, but if you want to check out the downtown Napa scene, Andaz in downtown Napa is a better bang for your buck.
