Just like my nephew Ethan I love staying in hotels. We didn’t stay in downtown Napa but instead we chose to stay at The Lodge at Sonoma.
We finally checked in after lunch at Addendum and wine tasting at Chateau Montelena Winery.
I really liked the wide open lobby with high ceiling.
The pool area was even better. It looked like a tropical resort.
I would have loved to sit here at night with the fire pit on to keep me warm. Too bad we forgot about it.
Instead of a regular building filled with hotel rooms, we stayed in cottages spread over a wide area.
This is what a typical cottage looked like. Our rooms were on the ground floor.
Ariel and Kit got upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite. This was their living room with an electric fireplace.
Both our rooms had the same bathroom.
The bathtub was in the center of the room.
The tub opened into the bedroom.
I really appreciate hotel rooms that have a separate shower stall since I hate taking showers in a tub.
The best thing about their suite is this Nespresso machine with so many choices of pods. We did our best to drink a LOT of espresso during our overnight stay.
My room was a standard room that also had a sitting area and an electric fireplace. The room was very big compared to city standards.
I had an iPod stereo system beside my bed.
I didn’t have a Nespresso machine in my room but I had the standard coffee maker. The coffee wasn’t too horrible. At least I had something to drink with my breakfast of scones from Bouchon Bakery.
The front desk also gave us complimentary wine tasting at their tasting room.
I loved staying at The Lodge. The bed was super comfy and the electric fireplace made the room feel warm and cozy. I would rather stay in cottages like these any time over the typical hotels.
