I was looking forward to our one night stay here based on the reviews from other TA people. I have to say that my experience was quite different from other reviewers. When you charge $395 for a Sunday night stay in January I have fairly high expectations especially when I have stayed at most other Yountville hotel properties.
The king bed ground floor room was quite small (not NY hotel small - but small for this area). There was only one comfy chair so my husband had nowhere to sit but on the bed. If you don't like expresso, you have to get dressed to go to the lobby to get your coffee in a small paper cup. Really? Not enough space for a real coffee maker? No complimentary newspaper at my door? No, get dressed and walk to the lobby.
The hotel features and amenities are almost readable on the faded, single page found in your room if no other guest used the page to express their innermost thoughts as was found in my
room. Finally the ground floor rooms have a small table and 2 chairs outside the door if you are there in nice weather. Unfortunately, they are sitting almost directly on the central walkway so there is no privacy.
On the good side, the staff seems friendly and the beds are comfortable.
Am I being too critical? No. At this price point in this location you can do better.
