From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:A down-to-the-studs overhaul turned the modest Yountville Inn into a place worthy of its Napa's many Michelin-starred restaurants. The design doesn't stray far from wine country's beloved French farmhouse look. The hotel has expanded by 40 rooms, a spa, and a restaurant, and the new buildings mimic the originals' cobblestone-like exteriors. The detailshammered-silver lamps, ostrich-leather footstools, and the likeare well curated, and the sizable guest rooms are gratifyingly light-filled and low-tech. No remote-controlled light switches here, no instruction manual required for the dual-headed shower. Gas fireplaces done in Napa fieldstone keep the place warm when it's cool, and a swimming pool provides cool when it's hot. The standout Hopper Creek Kitchen serves only breakfast, but the menu is as much of an eye-opener as the coffee, with dishes like risotto and maple pork consommé. The hotel has loaner bikes and iPads and is only a short walk from some of the most sought-after dinner spots in Napa Valley.2011 Hot List
