“Absolutely Elegant in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

From the moment we checked in at the front desk, you get the impression that this is one FABULOUS place. Everything about it is first class. Its location in Yountville is serene, yet within walking distance of wineries and great restaurants. Car service anywhere in the the city limits is a plus, especially when one considers that the "car" is a Lexus 600Hybrid sedan! Would recommend in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Room with an outdoor shower is really neat

Green Features: Evidently one of the highest rated environmentally hotels in the country.

We are having our wedding here in August and stayed overnight to do a menu tasting and go over the final details. From the moment we arrived, everything was perfect. The room was quiet and spacious. The bathroom was amazing - steam shower, outdoor shower, jacuzzi tub... We were also greeted with a welcome fruit and cheese plate accompanied by a bottle of sparkling wine and a personalized note. We ate at Lucy and had a hard time deciding on the food to serve at our wedding - we wanted all of it. In the morning there was a coffee and pastries bar, which was a perfect start to the day. Overall, though, the best part of our visit was the service. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, and super attentive to anything we might want. Thanks, Bardessono, and see you in a month!

Green Features: eco-friendly without any sacrifice to style or luxury - amazing!

Dear Ilana S,

Thank you for staying with us and choosing us for your wedding next month. This is such a nice review. We so enjoyed serving you both and look forward to the big event in August.

We have communicated outside of TripAdvisor, so do call on me for anything here at Bardessono. (Actually that goes for anybody reading this.....)

See you soon.

All the best from all of us.

Jim.

Simply a perfect spot for people who love service and aesthetic. Located in the heart of food and wine heaven (walking distance to the finest restaurants), this hotel ranks with the best in the world. The layout envelopes guests with views of the mountains, vineyards, and blue skies of the Napa Valley. Rooms flow perfectly with ample space and efficiency. And the pool and spa are top-shelf. But the best part of the stay was the impeccable service delivered by the staff. They were as proactive and service-oriented as any I've encountered. When it was over, I wanted to thank THEM.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms appear to be more private.

Dear Jon K,

What a great review. Thank you so much. You said so many nice things about us, but what resonates the most with all of us are your kind words about our staff. We really do have an amazing staff here - all hand-picked, and they really care about serving our guests well and creating lifelong memories.

You said you wanted to thank us. Your review did just that, so we now get to thank you.

Please come back again...soon and often.

All best wishes from all of us here at Bardessono.

We just returned from a long weekend in Yountville (Napa Valley) and stayed at the Bardessono - right in town and within walking distance of the best restaurants (French Laundry, Redd, Ad Hoc). The room was absolutely gorgeous - private patio, fireplace, large bedroom plus a smaller one with super-comfortable beds and pillows, and a spectacular bathroom. The staff was welcoming and very helpful. Loved walking the short block into town to Bouchon bakery in the morning. They partner with a fitness facility a block away - not a fabulous one but it served the purpose for treadmills and elipticals. My daughter took a yoga class at the hotel one morning as well. The pool is on the smaller side but has a number of cushioned cabanas for shade when needed - and we loved the number of rafts available to lounge in the pool. Also loved the coffee and pastry bar in the morning and water when we headed out every morning for day trips. It is a gorgeous hotel - beautifully landscaped and serene. In short, we loved it.

Room Tip: I liked the main floor rooms

Dear elizabeth a,

We really appreciate this wonderful review - Bardessono - Slice of Napa Heaven. Napa Heaven also describes our Town of Yountville. We are in a wonderful village right in the heart of Napa Valley. You were also nice to talk about our rooms, staff, pool, landscaping, and yoga so positively.

We thank you for staying with us and are delighted you enjoyed yourselves here. Do come back... soon and often.

Kindest regards from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

From the valets to the bartenders, from the in-room massages to the poolside cabanas, there is nothing to complain about this place. I have been here several times over the past few years. I have never had a bad experience. I always feel welcome (well, probably because they remember me and make a point of welcoming me back each time). The in-room massages are so special. It's such a luxury to have the masseuse (or masseur) come to your room and then bathe in your private soak tub. The pool is amazing. And, of course, its proximity to restaurants like Bouchon is unparalleled. This is an oasis that keeps giving.

I cannot express how impressed we were with the service we received from every member of the Bardessono staff. From the moment we drove up, entered the lobby, were brought to our rooms, were pampered at the pool, graciously served in the Lucy Bar, checked out bikes from the valets, served by the concierge, and lastly checked out by the desk staff, there was not a moment that I didn't feel like royalty. I too work in the service industry, and we all strive for superior service throughout the organization from top to bottom. Well congratulations Bardessono! You have achieved what we all strive for... and every member of your staff deserves congratulations. However you instill the service commitment in your staff, making each of us feel special, never feeling like our request is too much, making me feel appreciated and valued... keep it up! It's working!

Dear Cindy and Friends,

What a nice review. Thank you. You were also nice to write me separately about your experience here - all eight of you.

We really enjoy what we do. And it's even more rewarding when we are appreciated so much. You all were wonderful to serve, and it was great having you here. I just wish I had met you while you were here so I could have thanked you in person. Next time.

Yours was a big birthday celebration, and we hope we'll see you on your birthday in subsequent years.

We can't thank you enough for your many kindnesses.

Jim.

It's hard to add more to what's already been said about this place...but I'll try!

Really one of a kind property, with all the amenities of a 5-star resort but the charm of a boutique hotel and the uniqueness of an ecologically-minded business. Our suite was beautiful, perfectly quiet, full of the latest tech gadgets and very comfortable.

Breakfasts were fantastic, as evidenced by how much we kept eating. Dinners were also very good, creative and well prepared.

The pool area would put some resorts to shame and the property is a lot of fun to wander and explore.

Dear Real Foodie Toronto,

Thanks you for staying with us and posting this great review. You describe us very well, and you did add a lot to previous reviews. We, too, would describe ourselves as one-of-a-kind - unique, charming, eco-friendly, and high-tech. Physically, it's a very nice hotel, but it's our staff who bring to life and makes the guest experience here so memorable.

We all really appreciate your kind words and hope we'll see you back here soon.

All best wishes from your friends at Bardessono.

Jim.
