Spent three nights here in July with my fiance. Weather was perfect and hotel is small, charming, quiet and relaxing.
Arrival: We were greeted with champagne and shown to our room quickly.
Rooms: The rooms are luxurous - very nicely decorated, comfortable beds, high quality linens, nice shower and bath products, heated floors in bathroom, very nice shower area and bathtub and even a fancy expresso maker in the room. We are very light sleepers and slept very well, except for one morning when upstairs neighbors were a bit loud. If you stay upstairs on the second floor (top floor), you will probably will not hear anything at all.
Price: We got a deal for three nights, $300/night including breakfast. Overall a great deal for this area. Breakfast at the hotel is good but doesn't change, is the same every morning.
Location: Can't be beat. You can take a ten minute walk in the morning to Bouchon Bakery for sticky buns and coffee or a five minute car ride in the evening to all of the amazing restaurants of Yountville (boucon, etc). Mustard's Grill is a ten minute drive away (this was our favorite restaurant - try the signature pork chop and the desserts)
Pool - Pool area is small, but it was not crowded while we were there and it was clean with nice chairs.
Activities - If you like to bike, napa valley bike shop is right next door. Take a wine tasting tour with them, which is a lot of fun. Be careful though, they certainly give you lots of wine to try - we were pretty tipsy by the end.
Only negative is that the gym is TINY. i woudln't plan on doing much of a work out there. But who wants to work out inside when you can bike outside (and are tasting wine all day anyway?)
