“Great Little Napa Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Came here on a random Thursday and was very pleased with our stay. La Residence is a perfect place to stay for a casual but romantic getaway. The staff was helpful and friendly but also left us and created a comfortable environment. The room was clean and spacious. We took advantage of the outdoor seating areas and had a great cocktail and appetizer setup. The patio and breakfast were great too. Close to wineries, restaurants, and shopping.
I much preferred staying at a quaint and friendly place like this versus a big resort, while in Napa. We will be back!

Room Tip: We upgraded to the King Size suite and it was great.

A beautiful setting with lovely grounds. The rooms were clean and spacious and the bed was amazing! We went down to the evening wine and cheese reception and the only turn off was it felt like another tasting versus a nice unwind from the day. The breakfast was wonderful. We were sad we were only able to stay one night...at least this time.

Dear Liv4golf
,
Thank you for choosing La Residence as your place to call home while visiting the Napa Valley recently.

We appreciate your feedback regarding your stay and comments regarding the nightly wine hour, as it is intended to be an informal relaxing start to your evening, or end of a day of adventure in wine country, without the feel of a tasting experience. I will discuss with staff to see how we can better improve.

We look forward to welcoming you back when your travels allow, and hope that you reach out to us directly so we may assist prior to your arrival.

Thank you again for your comments, we truly appreciate them.

Best regards,
Graham

I would like to especially thank Candy Rodriguez for going extra miles to book a great room 20 for us as we were on the honeymoon and booked our stay here for a last-minute vacation. Overall service was very good and sufficient. Quite location and easy access to a major road. We utilized In-room spa services. My wife and I left very relaxed and enjoyed our stay greatly.

We chose this hotel because we wanted a non-chain, romantic hotel with an outdoor pool. Although the pool was small, it was well appointed, & the hotel overall was lovely. There are plenty of small outdoor gathering places, with a larger space outside the breakfast/wine tasting area. My only complaint is that there were several cobwebs on our bathroom light fixtures, and for the rate we were paying, I felt the housekeeping should have been spotless. Overall however, it was a very pleasant stay.
The Italian restaurant just down the road was a short evening stroll away, & had wonderful food.

My husband and I spent the first 3 nights of our honeymoon at La Residence and couldn't be happier about our choice. From the bottle of chilled wine in our room upon arrival to the delicious breakfasts with relaxing views every morning, this was a perfect honeymoon retreat. We stayed in room 31 which was attached to the mansion, but kind of separated allowing us for ultimate privacy. The road noise that I've seen others mention was a total non-issue. The pool was great for cooling off after a day of tasting and the staff will even provide stemless plastic wine glasses so you can continue your wine enjoyment while you swim. Make sure you're back at La Residence by 6 pm to enjoy the nightly wine tasting complete with cheese and crackers while you decide on what restaurant you're going to try out for dinner. During our stay we heard multiple times that the resort was at capacity, but never felt like there were too many people around.

The staff was also excellent. They were accommodating without being pushy and they seemed to genuinely enjoy what they do. Kelly and Candi in particular really made us feel welcome and important. They even helped us to arrange an in- room couples massage, which only added to the relaxation we felt.

In the end the only thing I can complain about is the fact that the air conditioner in our room didn't work well. We mentioned this every morning at breakfast, but they never got the issue resolved. Napa was experiencing a heat wave the week we were there and coming home to a room at 82 degrees was a little annoying, but we were able to cool off in the pool and by nightfall the temperature dropped comfortably.

Overall, I would stay at this resort again and again. I will definitely be booking a room at La Residence for many anniversaries to come!

Room Tip: Room 31 was private and beautiful....just make sure the air conditioner is working upon arrival..

Dear tasiairene,

Thank you very much for your very thorough review of La Residence following your recent visit.

First of all, congratulations again on your marriage and we look forward to being a stop on on your future anniversary celebrations!!

As you note, you stayed during a record high temperature spell here in the valley and I apologize if there was an issue with the air conditioner during your visit.

As always, we review areas that we can improve our operations and I will be sharing your comments with all team members involved to prevent any future occurrence.

We look forward to welcoming you back again and hope that when you think of the Napa Valley, that you remember La Residence with fondness.

Congratulations once more.

Best regards,
Graham
