Bardessono Hotel Review: Distinguished with Platinum LEED certification, this discreet 62-room hotel in downtown Yountville takes its ecological commitment seriously. Non-toxic materials, reused local limestone and salvaged wood such as Monterey Cypress and redwood (from old wine casks) feature in the buildings, which integrate seamlessly with the Northern California setting. Without sacrificing style, guest rooms pamper both guests and the environment. Occupancy sensors note when guests leave their rooms and decrease energy consumption. As for when guests are in their rooms, they can enjoy organic linens, hand-made bath products and a design intended to accommodate spa services from The Spa at Bardessono. Lucy Restaurant & Bar serves fresh selections incorporating local ingredients, some from the hotel's own gardens. With views of the Stags Leap Palisades and Mayacamas Mountains, a rooftop pool features cabanas and a pizza oven.
