I booked Hotel Yountville for a three night stay and I wanted to be in Yountville since I had dinner reservations for a couple of evenings in Yountville. It was better that there was also a deal for 3 or more night stay. Several of the other hotels in Yountville was one night short except for Bardessono which I was not ready to pay the price for. I rated it 4 out of 5 for a few reasons. Plus: Free Wifi. Slower at times but worked well enough for me to stream some netflix shows.The best things were the rooms are very spacious and each come with what seems like a porch or a balcony. It was too cold and rainy to use the balcony but I could see it being great during warmer weather. The design was lovely with exposed beams and a sitting area. The high canopy like bed was very comfy and I enjoyed having pillows and extra blankets. I liked the fireplace and definitely used that a lot. The spa bath was nice also in that the bathtub had jets and there is a separate area for the toilet. Plenty of fresh clean fluffy towels for use that I felt comfortable not getting the room cleaned daily. Umbrellas and slippers are in the closet as needed. We also received a complimentary Domaine Chandon cookbook which was nice. Our porch faced the back (ie. the small stream) so I felt it was very private. Since we strictly wanted to relax during this trip, we actually spent a lot of time in the room rather than drive from winery to winery. Another plus: complimentary car service to areas within Napa. We used the car service for our dinner at Meadowood which we were quite thankful for. It beat navigating the curves on our own and allowed us to freely drink wine, etc. Too cold to try the pool but it was heated...but it was near freezing in Napa during this time and not worth the pain. And we did have breakfast at their Hopper Creek Kitchen. Their sundried tomato ketchup (homemade) was lovely! As was the rest of the breakfast. Other benefits: they partnered up with several wineries for deals and such so that's a nice touch. We went to one winery and we had no trouble getting in (even though we went without a reservation and used our hotel card just in case there was a deal) but another couple at the same time tried to use their benefits from their hotel and they were told it was only valid before noon. So it was nice to know there are different degrees of perks you get by staying a certain places.
The Slight Dislikes: Their walls may be pretty thin but I also think a part of that is having an obnoxious person staying next door screaming their room number at midnight and who's deaf and likes to turn their TV up to max at 3am. We turned on the noise feature on their ihome (the ones that play water and nature noises) and that drowned out most of it. As I was contemplating calling the front desk to tell them to quiet down I fell asleep so it was tolerable with the noise machine. But still, guests as such are very annoying. We had a couple of tiny bugs crawl in from the porch but that can be expected especially given the very cold weather and proximity to the stream. The most frustrating thing was trying to figure out the correct air + fireplace combination. Every night we tried to set up the perfect temp but always woke up too hot or too cold. With that said, the hotel provides ample ways to keep the room warmer or cooler but it was still annoying. And sadly the bathroom, was always much cooler. That was not fun in the middle of the night.
Overall we enjoyed our stay very much and I would definitely choose Hotel Yountville again in the future. Especially for location.
