“Intimate and Hip Luxury Hotel in the heart of Yountville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

We are a big fan of small luxury Hotel's and the Bardessono is one of the best we have ever had the pleasure to visit! We were looking to stay in Yountville due to the world class restaurants and the proximity to the great wineries. Below is a summary of the great aspects of this property:
-In the heart of Younville, so you can walk to all the best restaurants and many tasting rooms
-Very serene and zenlike setting, the property is gorgeous
-We booked a King-Spa suite and the room had a great bathroom, very private patio with mountain views, and very modern but comfortable decor
-Great food at the restaurants, we had an amazing room service breakfast on our patio
-Very cool rooftop Pool and Bar, great place to unwind after a long day of wine tasting
-Access to two Lexus vehicles complimentary to tour the countryside
-And last but not least, an amazing staff! The staff was extremely accommodating and very focused on making sure we had the best possible experience. James, Cali, Chris and Tom all provided great insight into the best wineries and restaurants to visit. We visited over the weekend of the big earthquake, and while a very scary experience for earthquake rookies like us, the staff handled the situation with grace and aplomb despite the fact that they all were dealing with damage to their homes.

The one final bit of advice, if you are staying at the Bardessono and intending to visit French Laundry, Bottega, Redd or Bouchon, you should reach out to the concierge staff well in advance of your visit to secure reservations as these are some of the best restaurants in the country and always booked up. That goes for the wineries as well. The staff will work with you remotely on a great itinerary.

You cannot go wrong with this property, we will definitely be back.

Dear jmq70,

What a great review. Thank you so much. We're delighted to read how much you enjoyed yourselves here. Not sure we'd call ourselves "hip", though. To some, that can imply "coolness with attitude". But we are contemporary and progressive, but with old fashioned hospitality, a fierce desire to please, and deep care and concern for the happiness of our guests.

I especially want to thank you for your sage advice. Yes. By all means, make your arrangements in advance, particularly restaurant reservations.

Warmest regards and much appreciate from all of us.

Jim.

Enjoyed a 3 night stay recently. Could not be any happier. Great staff, always helpful and glad to assist. The room was amazing. We enjoyed dinner at Lucy one evening which was very good as well. Amazing property and grounds in a perfect location.

Can't wait to return, wouldn't change a thing.

Also, was at the hotel the night of the earthquake. A first for us and quite a way to wrap up an amazing trip.

Dear jb6179,

We're delighted to read about your experience here and that it was your "best trip ever". What a wakeup call early Sunday morning, though. The earthquake shook us all up, but by 5 p.m. that day we were cleaned up and it was business as usual.

Do come back....soon and often. I promise a wonderful (and uneventful) stay next time.

All best wishes from your friends at Bardessono.

Jim.

We only used the spa, so this does not address the hotel or restaurants on the Bardessono property.

Two of us enjoyed two services each. The therapists were both professional and very good, and they were able to give us our both of our services without making us move rooms after the first service--a nice touch. The spa is small, so you almost get the feeling it's your private spa day. I've been to some of the biggies (Bellagio, Encore and Cosmopolitan in Vegas, others in Hawaii, Solage in Calistoga), and this is a very different feel. Small, quiet and relaxing.

Dear PucksterColorado,

Thank you for visiting our Spa. Glad you liked it. It is small, as we do most of our treatments in guestrooms, the bathrooms of which are designed as spa treatment rooms themselves.

Do come back, and spend a night or two with us next time.

Kindest regards from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

Location is exceptional, the facilities are very nice and the service was great. Just about everything you could want is within walking distance from the property, including some of the best restaurants in Napa Valley.

We really enjoyed our stay here and would consider booking again with them. You could certainly save some money and pick a cheaper place in the Valley, but Bardessono is an exceptional choice.

Dear GCiplll,

What a nice endorsement of our hotel and its location in Yountville. Thank you so much. We're delighted you enjoyed yourselves here and recommended us to TripAdivor readers. Plus, you took a little of the "sting" away from the previous review, which really hurt. Thank you for that, too.

Do come back...soon and often.

Warmest regards from all of us at Bardessono.

It's location in younteville can't be beat, but the knowledge of the staff and attention to detail are exceedingly poor! At these prices I'd expect a top notch staff. Book your own dinners don't rely on the concierge.

Dear MsClay,

Thank you for staying with us in July. I am so sorry we did (or didn't do) something to prompt this review. It's difficult to figure out why you thought our service was poor and attention to detail lacking. I assume the focus of your unhappiness about us was around our Concierges and the service they provide.

Please call me at 707.204.6001, my direct line, or email me at jim.treadway@bardessono.com. I'm hoping to learn more about your experience here and to make amends directly to you, rather than via this very public forum. Plus, your experience will be a great learning opportunity for us, to preclude other negative experiences by future guests.

The headline of your review mentions "service" and "location" - our two attributes of which we are most proud. We go to great lengths to ensure all our guests receive personal, anticipatory, thoughtful, and caring service. It's therefore difficult to read of our failure with respect to serving you, but helpful, nonetheless.

We hope you'll return thereby giving us another opportunity to serve you.

Kindest regards from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

What a nice review. Thank you. I must admit to a little trepidation when I saw the word "Cons", then being relieved that you didn't have any for us.

We appreciate your staying with us last December, and hope you'll return...soon and often.

We stayed here for several days for a close friends' wedding. Our entire stay was nothing short of exceptional. The front deal staff were fantastic; from quickly checking is in and personally showing us to our lovely room to going above and beyond by loaning us one of the luxury courtesy cars to drive in to the city of Napa to pick up medication for an ill member of the wedding party, we were so impressed with the staff.

Guy, the evening hotel manager was our personal favorite. He helped us set up several wine tastings, delivered and corked bottles for our room to be ready when we returned from dinner and made sure all of our accommodations and needs exceeded our expectations.

The rooms were wonderful; we appreciated the attention to the green aspects of the rooms (auto shades, etc.)

The attention to detail by the staff and the central location in Yountville have made it so that this will be the only place we stay in the future!

Dear IowaFoodie,

Thank you for staying with us last November and posting this great review. I'm so glad we took good care of you; and you're right about our Lucy Restaurant manager, Guy - he's gem. He goes out of his way for all guests, and his scope of excellence is much larger than just running a great restaurant for us.

We're delighted you settled on us as your place to stay in Napa Valley. We think you have excellent taste in hotels and towns within our spectacular destination of Napa Valley. (O.K. That was a little self-serving.....)

We look forward to your return.

Kindest regards from your Bardessono family.

Jim.
