Set in the heart of the wine country between Yountville and Napa, this gem was recently transformed from a rustic B&B to world class luxury digs. The accommodations range from contemporary vineyard suites to antique-filled guestrooms in the 1870 Parker Mansion. Every one of the 41 rooms has cozy-luxe features galore, including fireplaces, organic bath products and private balconies; suites also have heated floors. Dotted throughout the property is a formidable trove of art. Days at the hotel begin with a hearty continental breakfast, and evenings are ushered in with wine and cheese pairings. The SENZA Spa, meanwhile, offers a comprehensive menu of treatments that range from botanical facials to a spa flight, which entails three kinds of pampering. This being wine country, there are also vinotherapy experiences on the menu, like the Gifts From the Vine treatment, which incorporates the heavenly scent of rose petal body butter fortified with grapeseed extract, as well as a facial using lavender, rose and honey-enriched grapeseed.
In the Area
When you’re in Napa Valley, it only makes sense to indulge in the sybaritic pleasures of the region, namely wining and dining. Start at Hall Wines, the gorgeous fairy-tale winery owned by the inn’s hosts; it fuses Old World charm with sleek modern design. Here you can sample flights of the family’s vintages in the atmospheric tasting room, attend a fun and informative wine workshop, or simply stroll the grounds and admire the idyllic views of the Mayacamas Mountains. Book well ahead to snag a seat at one of the area’s paradigm-changing restaurants, like Thomas Keller’s French Laundry, his more casual but no less delicious Bouchon Bistro, or the excellent Greystone Restaurant at the CIA, with its Tuscanyesque views of hills and vines. If you’re keen to keep that Thomas Keller high going, check out Ad Hoc, originally conceived as a pop-up but now a permanent Yountville fixture; it showcases the chef’s American comfort food roots.
How to Get There
We found the Senza on Hotels tonight when our first place did not work out for us. Unfortunately during our entire one day/night stay it poured rain! So I can’t speak much of the outdoor facilities. Upon arriving we were greeted and were offered assistance for our bags. Our room was incredibly spacious with a very cozy fireplace and outdoor seating area (covered). The bathroom had a wonderful heated floor and they had slippers waiting for us! The continental breakfast was fresh and light! The wine and cheese reception was warm and inviting.
The exercise room was very small with only one treadmill and barely room for more than 4 people.
It is near a main road so it was a little loud. It also sits in front of a neighborhood so hearing a leaf blower at 9:00 am was a bit bothersome. It certainly isn’t a retreat type of resort but a great little place to stay if you’re in the Napa area.
We chose to stay at the Senza for my first trip to Napa and could not have been happier! The grounds are meticulously kept, the rooms were large and clean and it is in a great location! The evening wine hours are special treat as you get ready to head out for evening dinner and the morning breakfast is a great way to start the day. I was very happy with our stay here and look forward to coming back one day.
Senza hotel is in a great location in Napa and we found our stay to be as expected. Our room was clean (and enormous) and we enjoyed the hot tub in the evening. The wine hour offered at Senza is a nice touch as well.
This is a beautiful boutique hotel. I stayed here for a day. Loved the ambiance, the staff both front desk and at the spa were very polite and amazing. The room was spacious, very comfortable. I stayed in this hotel with Vineyard view and loved every bit of it.
My group of (4) adults, and (1) teen stayed here for the well appointed rooms, and the central location between the wineries and downtown Napa. We couldn't believe how lovely the place was, and how the staff made us feel right at home. We quickly checked into our rooms, dropped our bags, and were in downtown Napa within 30 mins. The hot tub was welcome relief when you're running the wine trail, and we even dipped our toes into the pool (but hey it's not pool season yet). Oh did I mention the breakfast? This place has something comparable to an Italian breakfast complete with pastries, meats, cheeses, and assorted coffees and teas. If you can't find breakfast here, it's on you. Please book your room today because I'm coming back very soon.
