I extended a 3 day business meeting at the resort and my wife met me for a week of fun and sun and wine and dine in Napa. We chose to stay here because of the convenience and the fact that they extended our meeting rate ($169 per night; though after taxes and a $20 resort fee the bill was more like $230 per). Compared to other other places we looked at (mainly B&B's) in Napa, Silverado's price was a fraction of some of the prices we saw.
There is no doubt that this resort is a bit dated. Lots of peeling paint outside the buildings and quite a few spiderwebs on the railings. Our king bed room had a tiny bathroom, though the shower was addictive. The air conditioner was rather loud, but the "white noise" it generated drowned out the dog (in the backyard of a house across from the property) that started barking before sunrise along with the TV from our neighbor's room.
Our only other complaint is that the place was a bit dead. We hardly ever saw other people around. When we chose to spend a couple hours at the pool on an 85 degree day, we were literally the only ones there. We walked by the Grille one evening at around 8PM and there were only 2 or 3 people there. While daydreaming at my meeting that overlooked the golf course, we would see a foursome go by about once per hour.
That said, this place did a great job with service. We came to Thomas, the concierge, one day for some advice and he perfectly mapped our entire day, right down to making the reservation for a great restaurant (Angele) that we would never have chosen on our own. Additional props go to Lian, who opened the snack bar at the spa one morning after our workout to make us fresh smoothies. We expect that the snack bar was closed for lack of potential customers and we had our hearts set on post-hike fresh fruit smoothies. Lian came through bigtime. It is these 2 examples of great service that make a good resort into a great stay. I would rather have great service with average amenities than the other way around.
By the way, I did play the North Course and it was quite impressive, though the rough was ROUGH. The tennis courts looked nice and were about the only place where we saw any action going on. We had one breakfast in the grille and it was fine.
