Reviewed April 28, 2011

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?)

In a town with many great small hotels and restaurants, we are really glad we chose Hotel Luca. It is right in Yountville and close to everything (though it is a bit of a walk to most of the restaurants). Across the street from our favorite winery tasting room- jessup. From the start with complentary good sparkling wine at check in, they do a very nice job. The rooms were very spacious and clean, though we did find a long black hair in our shower. The heated bathroom floors and VERY large soaking tube were wonderful. The hotel is close to HWY 29, but only heard road noise in the bathroom. The Gym is free and small but well equipped for cardio and light weight. Enjoyed the TV on the treadmill.
The Spa looked very nice with an indoor jacuzzi and sitting room.
The complimentary breakfast was very good and a nice touch. The room also has an espresso maker and an empty frig except for free all you can drink bottled water! Turn down service with chocolate chip cookies was also a nice touch.
We did not use the outdoor pools, but they did look very inviting.
We sat outside in the courtyard with an outdoor fireplace enjoying our wines from the day trip and some great cheese.
The $25 a day resort fee was a little much given such a small place and there was no valet to be seen while we were there, but it did cover many things.
Overall, we would return again happily...

LOVED this hotel. Super clean, great staff, and atmosphere. All the comforts you could want in a hotel - nice bedding/linens, wonderful rain shower, great bath products. Turndown service is included - I wondered before why you would want such a thing, but it really is a nice touch! You pay a $25 per day gratuity fee (on top of the room rate). At first I was turned off by this, as the price is pretty expensive to start. But this was actually nice - didn't have to worry about tipping the bellman, valet person, or maid. I will add that breakfast is included in the room rate - you eat at the hotel's restaurant, and you get to choose between a couple of dishes. I usually eat a big breakfast and was unsure the portion would be large enough - but it turned out to be fine. The odd thing was is that you have to pay to tip the waiter (we just charged it to the room). I felt this should have been included in the gratuity fee you pay. Not a deal breaker.

Really nice location in Yountville. Right next to Napa Valley Bike Tours. If you want a spa treatment be sure to give notice as someone is not always on staff (I wanted one last minute and had to walk 10-15 minutes to the VIllagio). Short walk to all the reastaurants in Yountville (10-20 min depending on how far). This was by far the best hotel we stayed at during our CA trip (5 hotels in total).

My husband and I have always stayed at different places when in Napa. This was by far the best place we have stayed. The staff was fabulous. The Cantinetta Piero was amazing. We never ate anywhere else. We loved it so much at Hotel Luca we stayed another night. We will be back soon.

Stayed at this great, relatively new boutique Hotel designed to look like a tuscan villa. Great location in Yountsville. Close to Rte 29, main North-South road running through Napa yet far enough away not to hear traffic or be impacted by it. Near name restaurants such as French Laundry, Bouchon and Jeanty. Hotel staff is young, cheerful helpful and very professional. Onsite restaurant provides quality food at reasonable prices. Rooms are well designed, decorated and have great features such as double sinks, heated floors, deep tubs and separate showers in bathroom. Concierge arranged great winery itinerary Heated pool and hot tub capped off a great visit. great value for the price.

As soon as we arrived at Hotel Luca, it was evident that they paid attention to the little details that can make a stay so much more enjoyable. When we checked in, we were seated in comfortable chairs and offered sparkling wine and then escorted to our room. Inside, music was softly playing and our host showed us the controls for the radiant heat flooring in the bathroom and how to use the single-serving capsule style coffee maker.

The room was spacious and had a nice walk in closet, comfortable bed, and a very large bathroom complete with a shower with an over-head rain shower style shower head and a separate ginormous soaking tub.

The location was great, with lots of good restaurants (Bottega, French Laundry, Bouchon) in the area and of course a ton of wineries as well.
