We spent 3 nights here on a trip planned around dinner at the French Laundry. The location could not have been more perfect- my room looked out on the field where the French Laundry grows their vegetables! Everything about the hotel was warm and inviting, even in the chill of late January. The location was also perfect, within walking distance of so many restaurants and shops, and easy driving access to the rest of the valley. But the biggest treat of all was the breakfast featuring a large assortment of lovely choices: oatmeal, yogurt, granola, omelet station, baked goods, stratas, homemade jams... and wonderful, airy, freshly made English Muffins from the Model Bakery!
