Just got back from a 3 night stay during the Thanksgiving holiday. The location is excellent as the hotel is located in St. Helena - the middle between Napa and Calistoga. This hotel is absolutely beautiful. Nicely landscaped garden and the architecture is sort of European country charm. The main lobby has a great hall with a huge fireplace which is great for relaxing for a drink or two by the fire at the end of the day. They have a small snack reception and during our stay a wine sampling on Saturday night. There are two pool+hot tub areas. I used hot tub one night and it's really quiet and peaceful while gazing into the sky. Complimentary breakfast every morning with the dining hall facing the vineyard and mountains..What a view! Breakfast is pretty good. It includes muffins, pastries, cereals, variety of juices, tea and coffee, fresh fruits. Hot breakfast includes hard boiled egg, salami, quiche. The food is made in house and not prebought from supermarket. It's very delicious.
I was originally concerned about the room location and street noise having read some reviews from here. But I had problem whatsoever with street noise. We got a room in the fountain area and even though the back of the room is facing the street it's not right next to street. There's a drive way and trees between it. Also, the part of the room that 's close to the street is the back of the bathroom so no noise would come thru especially when you close the bathroom door while sleeping at night. One caveat thought, we got the first floor room and when the room above us checked out in the morning, I heard quite a noise from their packing and dragging luggage around. if you can, request the room on the upper floor to avoid this problem.
I first decided between Andaz in Napa vs Harvest Inn. Andaz has a slightly lower rate at the time but would have also offered a different experience. Harvest Inn is more for a country relaxation but give you and easy access to towns as well.
Overall, this is an upscale place to stay with a lot of attention to details and great services. . Is it as luxury as Bardessono, Northblock and Villagio, probably not. But the vineyard right on the premise, a very beautiful garden and trees, breakfast with mountain view makes it a better overall package. Depends on the rate you pay, I would highly recommend it.
