“WOW in Wine Country”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Exceptional! Our stay at the Bardessono was absolutely flawless! A quaint relaxing hotel within walking distance to many great restaurants in one of the best towns in Wine Country! We have been to Napa and Yountville several times. This is a beautiful hotel that will WOW you in every way. The staff is extremely accommodating and super friendly.

Room Tip: All the rooms are perfect!

Dear LoLA021613,

Thank you for staying with us and posting this nice review. We're glad you enjoyed our hotel and Yountville. You're right about our town - best place to be in Napa Valley.

We've never been called "quaint" before, as we are very contemporary, chic, and even a bit minimalist, as well as one of the "greenest" hotels in the world. Thank you for introducing a new adjective to describe us. :)

We hope you'll return soon and often. It was a pleasure serving you.

All the best from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

I have been lucky enough to stay at some fabulous hotels, and Bardessono is a new favorite. The staff were so enthusiastic and warm, the property is beautiful and exceptionally well thought out. I previously have stayed in Calistoga, which is lovely, but nothing beats being able to walk through the charming town of Yountville, just outside your doorstep. We were able to leave the car, do some wine tasting, nap, and took advantage of the hotel shuttle dropping us off at French Laundry just minutes away down the road. A wonderful experience that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Room Tip: Steam Spa Suite was unbelievable.

Green Features: Bardessono is well thought out and LEED certified. I am aware of how difficult this is to get, and commend them for doing so... but the best part is that nothing feels tacky... entirely luxurious and you would never guess they were so "green".

Dear Kelly923,

Thank you for staying with us and posting this nice review. You are kind to recognize our attributes so articulately. We are very proud of our staff and the service they deliver (and the manner in which it is delivered.) Our location is second to none in the Valley, as Yountville is such a great little town and central to everything. We're glad you made use of our complimentary Lexus shuttles, too.

And what trip to Napa Valley and its Yountville is complete without The French Laundry experience...

We do hope you'll return...soon and often.

Warmest regards from your friends at Bardessono.

Jim.

Our recent stay at Bardessono exceeded our expectations. It was our first trip to Napa and I was very glad we stayed in Yountville as it was easy to get from there to the many wineries and vineyards. The staff at Bardessono was awesome. They are first class and very friendly and helpful from check-in to check-out. Our room was wonderful (we were upgraded upon arrival) and the hotel grounds are beautiful.

In addition to mentioning our location, thank you for your kind words about our staff and the service we deliver. We're pleased you liked your room, too.

I hope we'll have the opportunity to welcome you back in the not-too-distant future. It was our pleasure to serve you.

We just returned from a long weekend at Bardessono and the reviews don't do it justice. The property itself with its beautiful art, sculptures and artistic running water create a romantic and zen atmosphere that induces immediate tranquility and relaxation. The rooms are immaculate and modern and the LEED certified "green" features which automatically turn off (and on) the bedroom fireplace and all lights and close (and open) shutters when you leave and arrive are unique for a luxury property like this. But, overall, it is the people and the staff that make the experience. From the front desk, valets and bellboys, everyone goes out of their way to ensure an amazing experience and make guests feel special. They work incredibly hard, always seem to be around, and always have a smile on their face. From the moment you check in and are greeted with a personal welcome and a glass of wine you know Bardessono is a special place. The masseuses who came to our room for our in-room massages were also very well trained and clearly knew what they were doing. But it was the concierge staff that really ensured an unbelievable experience. We arrived late on a Thursday with no reservations or appointments and asked for advice and appointments with only the smallest and most select family wineries in the area. Within an hour Harris had two appointments set up that afternoon and more the next day. Laura followed up with appointments for our remaining two days. Somehow Harris and Laura quickly discerned our tastes after only a few minutes of discussion as the wineries and families we visited could not have been more perfectly suited for us. At each appointment we spent almost two hours getting to know the families behind the wines and the experiences made us feel like we had known the families forever. The quality of the wines were superb as well and we look forward to receiving our regular shipments as new members of their wine clubs. The resort is in a perfect location for exploring Napa and we look forward to returning soon.

Dear miamians1,

Just when I was thinking what nice reviews we have received recently and that none could be better than those we have already received, yours pops up. Wow. Thank you so much for such a detailed and thoughtful recounting of your stay here.

I love it when guests truly appreciate all the little things we do to create lifelong memories of visits to Napa Valley and Bardessono for our guests. A lot of things go on behind the scenes here as we try to orchestrate perfect stays for our guests. But, at the end of the day, it's all about hiring and training wonderful people, with the emphasis on hiring just very nice people with great character, and a strong desire to serve others. Training bright, happy, and caring people is easy. We can focus on skills, knowing they have all the other pieces in place already.

We thank you sincerely and do hope you'll return.

All the best from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

First of all, this was our first time to Napa so we didn't really know what to expect. I came with my parents and we leave tomorrow morning. As Las Vegas residents, we were SHOCKED to receive customer service that was actually better than back home. Bardessono is the epitome of a five-star resort experience. Everything from our arrival to the valet attendants, concierge, waiters/bartenders to our room was nothing less than outstanding. We stayed in a King/Queen Spa suite I believe, room 108. The rooms are just as beautiful and luxurious in person as they are in pictures online. The staff is warm and welcoming, and genuinely friendly. We loved our complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates upon our arrival. What a nice touch! Next time I'm in Napa I'll be sure to stay here again, and I can't wait to refer our clients at home to come to Napa and stay at Bardessono. Thank you for such a delightful stay; We couldn't be more grateful for such a wonderful experience!

Dear DomVegas,

I can't thank you enough for staying with us than posting this glorious review. The hotels in Las Vegas are a bit bigger than us (by one-to-two thousand rooms, compared to our 62....), but you're right - customer service at the high end Vegas hotels is exceptional - the Mandarin and Four Seasons come to mind. To be compared favorably is high praise. Thank you.

You talked a lot about our staff. I can't say enough about them myself. We have assembled a wonderful team here, and it shows in our TripAdvisor ratings and overall score. Thank you for acknowledging us so positively.

Vegas is right around the corner (well, sort of....) We do hope t welcome you back soon, as well as you clients and friends.

Warmest regards from your friends at Bardessono.

Jim.

My recent stay at Bardesonno was amazing! The grounds are breathtaking with water features that create a calm, spa-like feel. The staff was friendly and service was excellent. We booked two ground floor rooms with private patios in the Magnolia section. The rooms were quiet, well appointed and comfortable. The decor is modern, but still very warm and inviting. Our room had a view of gorgeous oak tree branches poking out from behind our patio wall.

The on-site restaurant, Lucy, is fantastic. There are also many other dining choices within walking distance, including Bouchon Bistro and The French Laundry. The hotel offers complimentary shuttle service (in a Lexus) if you prefer not to walk. Honestly, I could have spent my entire stay never leaving Bardessono and I would've been in heaven. I also love that this hotel is LEED platinum certified. I travel often all over the world and this is the first time I was inspired to write a review. Highly recommend!

Dear 911Christine,

What a great review. Thank you for writing it and thank you for staying with us.

We're delighted you enjoyed your stay to the extent it motivated you to write this review. You talked about everything of which we are proud - our location, restaurant, ambience, grounds, our staff, and our LEED platinum certification making us one of the greenest luxury hotels in the world. Our commitment to the environment is extreme, but we make no sacrifices to the guest experience and comfort in being green.

L.A. is just an hour flight to three of our area's airports - Oakland, Sacramento, and SFO.

Hope we'll see you back here soon and often.

All the best from your friends at Bardessono.

Jim.

Dear LaCanadagirl,

Thank you for staying with us and posting this great review. We're delighted you appreciated our LEED platinum certification, as well as our in-room spa services, and our hybrid Lexuses we loan out. They are a great way to test drive an awesome vehicle.

As you have experienced, the bathrooms in our hotel associated with our guestrooms are all oversized, and were designed to serve as spa treatment rooms, too, each with their very own massage table.

Glad we picked the right room number for you, too. We had no idea about your affinity for 208.

Please come back...soon and often.

All best wishes from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.
