“Fantastic Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a fantastic hotel set in great surroundings. The Spa has a decent gym and 5 indoor pools. The Hotel has a great outdoor pool and a fantastic bar. The rooms are spacious and mine had a balcony and real fire. Fantastic place to stay and well positioned to go exploring wine country

We booked the spa package and loved it. Our room was simple but welcoming (and the bed was ultra-comfortable) and the spa, oh the spa! Lovely bathing ritual area, and the treatments are great. Had watsu (highly recommend) and the Chardonnay sugar scrub (smelled good, left skin very soft).

I love this hotel. It is not the most cutting edge nor the most modern but that is part of its charm. It is small enough to allow for personal service but also private enough to allow for real relaxation and comfort. The rooms are lovely--the ones in the Inn building can be small, the Wine Country rooms are larger--and the spa is fantastic. The quality of the massage therapists is outstanding and the variety of spa treatments is also great. the workout facility is small but you can get a decent workout. There is something special about this hotel. It is a bit spread out like a resort, has two pools, fun bars, casual and formal dining. Really everything you could want for a trip to wine country.

This is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed at. We had a problem with ants which was taken care of quickly. Great staff, great concierge, beautiful room, lovely grounds. The spa area, which costs $29 to use is very nice and I would highly recommend. It is a little 'annoying' to have to pay to use the hot tubs, etc. when you are a hotel guest, but it was still worth the money. We went late in the day and they gave us a 2 for 1 offer. If you stay here, do not miss a meal at Sante - an experience unto itself.

Room Tip: Maybe if you avoided the first floor, you would avoid having any ants enter your room?

Green Features: I have no idea about the practices of the hotel. I suppose they could do better by not using things like bottled water and keurig k-cups?

Went for a spa day with my daughter to relax her before her finals this afternoon, we planned on arriving at 8:30am and leaving at 3pm. We planned to have mother/daughter day..massages, pools, lunch etc. 9am, we each had a very nice massage. It sorta went downhill from there. Each of us noticed the other one had a hole in her robe, surprising for Fairmont. The Jacuzzi's were old and tired looking. We couldn't tell if they were stained, dirty or just old, again nothing you would expect from the Fairmont. The staff was pleasant, but no one told us there were sitting lounges upstairs at a covered patio, or that there was a Jacuzzi in the corner by the outdoor pool. They have a nice heated pool however it has several large rust stains on the bottom of it - gross. The pool itself is very nice, we were in it for a bit in the morning and wanted to try the steam room, sauna, etc..by the time we came back, it was reserved. I don't understand this..sounds like "double dipping" to me on the Fairmont's part..we are paying to use the spa facilities and they are renting them out during this time to other guests for private use. We thought that was pretty rude. We decided to not let that ruin our time together and thought we would have lunch and then go back to the pool before we had to head home. We soon found out the café was closed. We could order from the restaurant menu, however it would be "about" 45 minutes before our food arrived, plus there would be a service charge AND 20% gratuity added on. Sorry for the negative review here, but these facilities were more like an "upscale Best Western" than a Fairmont. :-(

Room Tip: We did not stay here - only used the spa

Attended a holiday party here on Dec. 13th and stayed the night. Check-in was wonderful, with personal help at the curb by valet. Needed a room with 2 beds instead of one queen, and he was able to put us in a room with sofa bed (Tempurpedic which as very comfortable). Saw other rooms with just a queen and they were quite small (in main building where lobby was); as company paid for rooms, they were likely lowest category. Loved the Rose 31 products, particularly the shampoo. Very expensive to buy ($50 for 8 oz bottle); didn't realize it was a Fairmont exclusive product. Rooms were very comfortable, and loved that windows could be opened. Our dinner consisted of "Neiman Ranch filet and lobster"; I couldn't eat the beef - it was not good (neither could my husband), and the lobster tail was so small and it was nearly impossible to get the meat out. Our appetizers were good - albeit the mushroom poof was cold. Our bartenders were wonderful. Be sure to put your "do not disturb" signs out - our friends were walked in on by the maids in the morning.

Room Tip: ask for room with sofabed or balcony as queen rooms are quite small

Beautifully restored and renovated, the rooms are classic California but with a contemporary twist. Service was never short of outstanding. The grounds are absolutely stunning and the rooms themselves are just about perfect.
