Napa Winery Inn
What We Love
- A low-key getaway in Napa wine country, including breakfast and a nightly wine receptionStarting your day with a delightful wine-country breakfast, and ending it with a wine tasting
- Hopping from winery to winery, on your own or aboard the Wine Train
- Eating at legendary restaurants, like Morimoto and Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry
Is there such a thing as too much wine? Perhaps in certain corners of the world, but certainly not in Napa. This beautiful city is the capital of California wine country, with about 400 tasting rooms here and in the surrounding valley – plus 200 in neighboring Sonoma – and you, dear visitor, deserve to squeeze every last drop out of it. Make this Herculean task a little easier for yourself, and when you choose a place to spend the night, make it one with wine hours each evening, and “winery” in its very name.
Napa Winery Inn is right in the city’s heart, an easy drive to countless wineries, from the barnhouse of Sequoia Grove Vineyards to the ivy-coated lounges of Domaine Chandon (yes, that Chandon). A range of vineyards, cellars and estates all open their doors to you, and even outside of them, the vino flows freely. The three-hour, round-trip Napa Valley Wine Train leads you around 36 miles of grapevine-coated valley and hilltop, in a vintage car, while plying you with local vintages. And with such a good excuse for a wine list, Michelin-starred restaurants abound – so as you taste your way through Napa, be sure to leave some room for food.
Your room at Napa Winery Inn is one of 59 recently renovated retreats, each with its own 37-in. flat-screen TV. You’ll sleep on a plush bed with high-quality linens, and a table and chairs make up a laid-back sitting area, when you pop by the inn for a break between wine tastings.Deluxe and Premium rooms, which are identical apart from a bit more space in the Premium option, both offer your choice of one king or two queen beds.
It’s not called “Napa Winery Inn” for nothing. The property lies right in the heart of wine country, and there are 400 estates, wineries, cellars and vineyards clustered throughout the area (including 17 the hotel’s staff recommends). This area’s also rich in top-rated restaurants; The French Laundry and Morimoto Napa are all an easy drive, as are lesser-known gems, like nearby Fume Bistro. For other ways to spend your days, consider hopping on board the Napa Valley Wine Train, visiting the Petrified Forest, exploring the Historical Society or shopping at the local outlets.
How to Get There
My husband and I spent two nights at this hotel, which has plenty of parking Our room was large and very comfortable. Apart from a substantial breakfast included in the price and complementary coffee available all day, the hotel also offers wine tasting in the early evening, for no extra cost.
The employees are outstandingly friendly and helpful. Jarrett went out of his way to advise us where to go wine tasting and even booked a tour for us on our behalf.
There was no resort fee added to our bill, such a change compared to a number of US hotels we had stayed at during our trip.
Attended a one-day meeting and wanted to check out Napa mid-week so work colleague and I booked rooms at Napa Winery Inn. Well-rounded continental breakfast included in price. Two freeway exits from CIA @Copia and First Street/ Downtown with nice restaurants and shopping. Clean room, nice location and price is right.
Looks are deceiving, the pictures are not as pictured. The place is near a highway so it was noisy. It didn't feel like a winery inn, and their is no water or ice to purchase or get especially after a long day of wine tasting. The bed was horrible, and the bathrooms are very outdated. This place needs a new upgrade! I won't be staying here ever again.
This is a nice and quiet inn. The furniture is very plain and appears to be a renovated chain hotel. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast was a pleasant surprise, given the limited space dedicated for serving. There were scrambled eggs, bacon, & sausage, in addition to Continental breakfast offerings. A wine reception, only a white and a red, is offered each evening 5:30 PM-6:30 PM.
Jeffery who worked the front desk was amazing. Friendly, helpful, and provided the best customer service we have ever received ! Any question we had, he was able to answer with a smile. We will return. The rooms were nice, good location, good breakfast.
