We went back and forth about which hotel to stay in. So we decided to do half and half. We do this a lot! Overall we both agreed we preferred Bardessnon which was shocking becuase we aren't very "modern" people but the hotel was spotless, beautiful, pristine, elegant in a very "Napa" kind of way, fantastically located, service could not have been nicer. Auberge was beautiful, more isolated, a quieter place, elegant with beautiful views but we were a little bored there after having been right in Yountville. We did have a fantastic meal with the most amazing view but in general don't like eating in our hotel. Both hotels are wonderful and each offer something different, but overall when we go back and we will because we had so much fun, we will choose the Bardessono.
