From our travel perspective, the Napa Valley has a lot of ordinary hotels at luxury prices. The Hotel Yountville is an exception.
Located a 5 minute walk (if one walks slowly) from the center of the village, the hotel is so fully renovated as to be brand new. Though pretending to be in the spirit of Tuscany, the lobby is no more than a contemporary decorator's cliche with a not very creative Restoration Hardware theme. It is large, spacious and comfortable, and if we hadn't been confused by the incomprehensible reference to Tuscany, we wouldn't have known for the worse.
On the way to the rooms, organized into seven separate buildings, you pass by a very California-style sitting area organized around a rectangular fountain with a large gas fireplace (wood would have been so much nicer).
The rooms are very large, well decorated, with gas fireplaces, excellent bathrooms and very large closets. Ours had a peaked ceiling and beams and nice light. One drawback to some rooms -- the parking area is very large as it serves all of the separated buildings, and some rooms can't avoid a parking lot view.
The small swimming pool is a perfect comfortable temperature, bordered by a nice jacuzzi and another large gas-driven fire pit and a very large, diffused seating area.
The highway is very close by but we rarely heard noise; other hotels in the area haven't done well with that but the Yountville did.
We were a bit off season but can imagine a bit less desirable stay in full season if families and noisy kids decide to stay around the pool; but we didn't have that problem and found the hotel to be a restful, spacious and very comfortable place.
