“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

What a perfect place to stay for a visit to the Napa Valley. All aspects of the hotel hit the mark. Our welcome included a glass of wine and was very personalized and the tour of the property by the Italian gentleman (can't recall his name) was a highlight. In fact, this same staff member was great throughout our visit. The bell staff and valet were all friendly and fast. The rooms are modern, clean, high tech, spacious and quiet. The bathroom was huge and well lit. The grounds of the hotel are gorgeous with a very sleek and minimalistic nature. Lots of small touches which enhance the experience such as the complimentary coffee bar each morning in the bar and the purified bottled water supplied in the room. The location is perfect for both wine tasting and dining. The spa was small and intimate. I really have nothing to suggest or improve. It is obvious that management of this place aims to please and has the guests at the forefront of their thinking. Thanks for a great experience.

Green Features: Impressive to create a luxury experience in an environmentally friendly manner.

Dear sglars,

I can't thank you enough for staying with us and posting this detailed and glowing review. "Perfect" is high praise, indeed.

While we aren't really perfect, we do have a wonderful location, facility, and offerings. And our staff enjoys working here and delighting our guests - Antonello, in particular. He's a wonderful ambassador of hospitality for us.

We hope it won't be too long before you return.

Warmest regards from all of us.

Jim.

This is an absolutely first class hotel. We enjoyed every moment of our stay. The rooms are well organized and the outdoor shower is wonderful! THe location cannot be beat. No restaurant, in Yountville, is more than a 10 minute walk away. And Yountville is a very charming town. If I could make any suggestion it would be to make the room sofa more comfortable. John, at the front desk, made our trip even more special with all of his help and attention. We can't wait to return!

Awesome customer service and concierge. Rooms were spacious, really cool fireplace, and the bathrooms were really nice. Great town and location to explore Napa. We were warmly greeted upon arrival with amazing wine. The restaurant is top notch amongst many other great places to eat around.

We just completed another great vacation at Bardessono. Besides Bardessono's fantastic location and the beautiful grounds, the employees are the some of the friendliest and most hospitable we've ever experienced. The front desk and valet staff are helpful and polite. The crew at the excellent restaurant, Lucy, are as good as any in the valley. The food there never disappoints. We'll be back again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Bardessono in Yountville. It was pure bliss! Very tranquil and peaceful. A perfect mix of urban and natural textures with a very friendly atmosphere. The staff were terrific!! Extremely warm, friendly and helpful. The location was prime, the ambiance was surreal and the amazing staff made it a perfect resort. It was romantic, chic yet cozy, the outdoor shower was unbelievable, and the food / drinks were amazing! We didn't want to leave!!!

I strongly urge you to stay here! You will not regret it. Check out their website … it is better than it looks!!!

Green Features: It is a LEED Platinum certified hotel. Not exactly sure what that entirely means … but I know it is hard to achieve. I didn't notice anything different about the hotel, so I presume that's a good sign?!?!?

Brought my wife here to celebrate her 40th and had an amazing time. Loved every aspect of it, from the room quality to the the pool to the glass of wine on arrival. Very clean, very green, and very zen. Location is great, can walk to anywhere in Yountville. Bikes were able to be checked out for wine adventures which is nice. We would have a hard time staying anywhere else on subsequent trips. The one minor glitch we did have was more than made right by the hotel staff. Can't wait to go back!

Dear STB98,

We really appreciate your staying with us and writing this great review. I'm sorry about the "minor glitch", though, but glad to see we made it right for you. Our price points create the expectation of perfection - something that we strive for but is hard to achieve.

I hope we'll see you here next November on the occasion of your wife's second 40th birthday. :)

We really enjoyed serving you both and send our very best.

Jim.

Absolutely in the center of Yountville, so you can eat and drink all you want at French Laundry, walk a block, and fall into bed. No careening up and down the valley after a bottle or two of wine. The location was the main attraction for us, because all the eating we want to do is right there in Yountville. But the Bardessono turned out to a lovely hotel.
The room was large and well-furnished, and there was a big terrace. It is true that the floors are concrete, etc. The hotel, like others in Napa valley, was built with sensitivity to the environment. This can strike some as cold and bunker-like, but it strikes us as great.
The staff was great, the food in the hotel excellent, and the landscaping gorgeous.

Dear Kay U,

What a nice review. Thank you. We're grateful you stayed with us and appreciated our location and ambience.

For both first time and repeat visitors, our location is second to none, except for those who are looking for a remote and rural location with expansive views. I'll trade the views for convenience any day. Here at Bardessono our guests are not "car dependent".

And yes, our ambience here is a bit minimalist, best described as contemporary and simple elegance. It is not opulent luxury a la more traditional luxury brands. There are warming touches throughout, but it is our staff who make Bardessono inviting and special.

Please come back...soon and often.

All the best from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.
