My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights in late April. The trip was to celebrate my birthday. Immediately, I was impressed by the attention to detail in the public areas, and later, our room. The lobby was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon. They were having afternoon tea and a wine tasting. Tea was accompanied by various tea sandwiches, pastries, devilled eggs, scones and toppings -- all delicious.
A porter met us at our vehicle and brought our bags up to our room. The room was very welcoming and nicely sized. There was a complimentary bottle of champagne chilling, in addition to the complimentary bottle of wine, in honor of my birthday. Although it was a bit warm for us to use the fireplace, there was a log and matches, just in case. There was both a Nespresso maker and a coffee maker. The bed was very comfortable, the bed linens were soft, and the robes were like clouds -- the towels not quite so much; they could have been a bit fluffier. We had a nicely-sized balcony with a view of the lovely grounds.
The grounds were perfectly manicured. There were flowering trees, shrubs and plants everywhere, and the long course of fountains was wonderful. The pool area was very nice too, complete with cabanas and a hot tub, although it was a trifle cool, and we were too busy to use them. We also had a spa reservation that, due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to cancel, but the spa services sounded really nice.
Each morning there was an included buffet breakfast, complete with champagne, mimosas, bloody marys or greyhounds. There was an omelet bar, breakfast potatoes, pastries, fruit, muffins, irish oatmeal (yummy) and hot banana bread pudding daily. The breakfast entree rotated (biscuits & gravy, chilaquiles, quiche, etc.), and on the weekend there was also a waffle bar. You could eat inside or under the umbrellas on the patio.
The location of the hotel was perfect. It was very convenient to access the rest of the valley. Also, it was across the street from Bouchon Bistro (very good) and Bistro Jeanty. The best part was that it was connected to Michael Chiarello's Bottega (wonderful).
I loved my stay here and just wish we'd had even longer.
