U.S. News Review

Visitors are most impressed with the Bardessono's environmental stewardship, daring architecture and exceptional service. This LEED Platinum Certified hotel in Yountville, California, is dedicated to protecting the environment while providing a luxury experience for guests. Accommodations are heated and cooled using an underground geothermal system, while 940 rooftop solar panels keep the lights on. Visitors are certainly respectful of Bardessono's mission, but they're more vocal about the property's deluxe amenities, praising the guest rooms' huge bathrooms and modern technology. The on-site spa and pool are also popular features, and many visitors are quick to praise the personalized customer service. Don't miss eating at the traveler-recommended Lucy Restaurant & Bar, which serves up seasonal, locally sourced cuisine and an extensive list of wines.

Critic Reviews


“Although Bardessono bills itself as the 'greenest luxury hotel in America,' there's nothing spartan about its accommodations; arranged around four landscaped courtyards, the rooms have luxurious organic bedding, gas fireplaces, and huge bathrooms with walnut floors.”
Award: Fodor's Choice


“Though it's set in Wine Country, Bardessono in Yountville is an urbane oasis of luxurious calm and serenity.”
Award: Forbes Travel Guide Four Star Awards 2014


“Swank yet eco-friendly, this 62-room resort opened in 2009 with a mission of sustainability and luxury. ... The rooftop pool deck offers pretty mountain views, shaded sun beds, and a hot tub — though the pool itself is a tiny lap pool.”
