Have been to Napa & Sonoma on many occasions & wanted to try someplace different to stay. We usually stay at the Auberge du Soleil, which is a lovely experience, but we were in the mood for something a little less "big deal." The Kenwood was a nice surprise.
The hotel is built in a former estate & has a certain old-world charm. All the staff were extremely polite and conscientious. We had a room overlooking the pool & it was very spacious, huge bathroom, gas fireplace, comfy king bed, lots of nice amenities. The hotel is built right on the road, which gets a steady stream of traffic, so avoid rooms streetside. Our room was quiet, but we realized we also had no next door guests. When people checked in next door, the walls seemed very thin - Yikes!
My husband & I both had deep tissue massages in the spa - they were well done, but nothing special, moderately pricey.
We only had breakfast in the restaurant as the dinner menu looked uninspiring - lots of faux-Italian dishes. Breakfast waitstaff were very friendly, but nothing food-wise really stood out - this is wine country, so you come with high expectations. (A much better & more original breakfast can be had a couple of miles down the road in Agua Caliente at El Molino -try it, you'll like it & they serve Blue Bottle coffee to boot!)
I would stay here again if I wanted to be close to Sonoma, but would be cautious about coming in high season, as the hotel is small & facilities could get crowded.
