Hotel Yountville

Good morning and greetings from Yountville, where we just finished both our morning constitutional down the main street and a delicious breakfast in the Hotel Yountville restaurant, Hopper Creek Kitchen. If you’re planning a trip to the wine country, and Napa Valley, in particular, I cannot recommend a better place for you to stay than Hotel Yountville for a few days.

First of all, Yountville is a town of amazing charm. The population is around 3,000 (give or take), and you couldn’t ask for better weather or a more peaceful community. If you choose to stay at Hotel Yountville, you’re already on the main drag – Washington Street – on which all of the town’s fine restaurants are located: the aforementioned Ad Hoc, Redd, Bottega, Bouchon (not to mention Bouchon Bakery), and the famed French Laundry, all of which are within a 10-minute walk of the hotel. 

Interesting side note: Just across the street from the French Laundry is Thomas Keller’s public garden, in which he grows many of the fruits, vegetables and herbs that he uses in his several local restaurants. It is a working garden and you can go for a stroll and observe the locals tending the garden. It’s very impressive.

Back to the Hotel: When we stayed here exactly a year ago, we had such a good time that we decided to book it all over again and requested the same accommodation – an elegant 1-bedroom suite with private veranda. I thought you might like to see what it’s like:

The Hopper Creek Kitchen, open during the day, serves up the best breakfasts of any hotel in our experience.

The hotel is also outfitted with a spa and swimming pool. There’s a bar located in the main lobby, as well as another bar poolside.

Hotel Yountville is elegant and beautifully appointed, as well as being centrally located in the Napa Valley as you go traipsing from one winery to another for afternoon tastings and/or tours, and is a short walk from some of the best restaurants in the wine country.
