Meadowood is a lovely resort clinging to the hillside outside of St. Helena. I had a huge, comfortable room and deck in the treetops at the top of a long flight of (poorly lit) steps. Excellent, pricey spa. However, at $1000+ a night, it simply isn't in the same league as 5-star properties I've stayed in all over the world. Disappointments: Virtually no common space where friends or family can hang out together. Incredibly overpriced food and wine. A tiny bar where we were told that every comfortable chair was reserved. We sat on bar stools for wine that ranged from $35-$65 a glass. There was NOTHING special about Thanksgiving dinner. Unless we wanted a long, steep walk, we had to call for a golf cart to go anywhere on the grounds. Maid service arrived late in the afternoon. No comparison w/my experience at the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay, not to mention the difference in time from the San Francisco airport (45 minutes vs. 2 1/2 hours). If you're a big foodie/winie, stay in a hotel in Yountville where you can walk to some of the best restaurants in the US and drink all the wine you want without worrying about driving afterwards.
