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
Booked this for my son and he had such a wonderful time! Very clean and great location. The staff was friendly and very hospitable. Great place to stay for value. He took in some wine tours and the staff was very helpful setting them up.
Small fridge, no DVD player. Hot tub in bathroom does have jets and nice big mirror. Plenty of space and clean sheets. Very friendly staff and pool is open late. Nice breakfast and cute outside waiting area
We loved this hotel in the Napa Valley. The room was VERY nice, large and clean. The staff was gracious and helpful, and the morning breakfast great. We were very impressed. Napa is usually a pricey destination, but this hotel was both affordable and Nice!
This property is a great value choice. rooms are not luxury, but not poor either. excellent and free breakfast. great location, attentive service and CHEAP price compared to so many other places nearby.
This was the second time my husband and I stayed here, mostly because of the location and price. On second look of this hotel, it seemed very outdated to me, especially the bathroom. The breakfast could have been better, but it was convenient. The chair in our room was badly stained. Air conditioners are very old and the first room they gave us had a broken air conditioner. They promptly moved us to another room. The staff was friendly and helpful. I did get a very good deal on the rate through their website, which was a plus. Justin was a great help to me with making a change to my reservation.
