Journeys of Discovery: Calistoga’s Mount View Hotel celebrates a century of guests

Situated in the northern reaches of Napa Valley, the Mount View Hotel has graced downtown Calistoga with its Art Deco motifs since 1919. Hotel owner Michael Woods is such a passionate community booster that he donates 50 percent of the hotel’s profits to local nonprofit organizations. 

Correspondent Tom Wilmer reports from the Calistoga hotel, where he visits with owner Michael Woods; the hotel's general manager, Derrick Dumont; and Dan Kaiser, owner of Veraison, the on-site restaurant.
