Stayed in an inner courtyard King and, aside from the thumping of the couple upstairs loved, loved, LOVED the room. It is as it appears in the photographs. Location of your room is important, though. My room was near the spa and, while sitting on the patio, could see the parking lot in the distance near Bottega. This positioned the room far away from the highway traffic. The patio was private as there was no pathway running along it, so I could sit on the patio in a robe and drink coffee in the morning. There was a tiny bit of noise from Washington Street, especially in the early morning when deliveries were being made to the restaurants. But I am an early riser, so it wasn't an issue for me, but could be for someone else. However, I would definitely get the second floor next time as the stomping from the couple upstairs drove me to finally call the front desk. The property is lovely with enough beautiful landscaping to keep a dozen gardeners working full time.
The breakfast buffet with made to order omelets and waffles was superb and the mimosas were just the icing on the cake. The bartender will give you one "to go" if you want to take it back to your room. It is in a 16 ounce plastic cup! Might need a nap after that one. They make an awesome bloody mary as well. I was quite taken aback by the guy who came to breakfast in his pajamas and slippers and the guy who came to breakfast in short and NO shoes. One would think when you can afford to pay $650 a night, you have enough social grace to dress properly and put shoes on your feet when going to eat.
The pool and hot tub are great amenities as are the bali beds, which make a nice place for a siesta at 4:00 after touring wine county all day. The gals who work in the pool area are really sweet and will fetch a drink for you and make up your lounger with fresh towels. The front desk staff and the staff working the breakfast buffet and bar were all great, too.
The concierge was very helpful in the weeks leading up to my arrival with suggestions for winery tours. Thanks to her, I discovered Round Pond Olive Oil and (Biale) Black Chicken Zinfandel, two stops that I would not have made without her suggestion.
This inn is worthy of a repeat visit!
