Had a lovely, sunny weekend in Napa recently. We returned to the Napa Valley Lodge after a pleasant visit about nine years earlier, and were greeted by a friendly receptionist who was able to check us in early. Initially offered a room on the first floor, our request to be upstairs was quickly accommodated. The room was as we had hoped, with all the typical amenities except for a safe for our valuables (tho we didn't inquire further after not finding one in the room). The only unusual thing about our room was the layout of the bathroom, which seemed a little awkward with the sink on one side and the toilet on the other side of a wall. The included breakfast was served in a lovely room off the pool, and was quite good and offered a variety of food. The location of the Lodge offered us the opportunity to walk to most of our meals and wine tasting experiences, having received some good suggestions from the hotel staff. All in all a great weekend.
