On a secluded stretch of the Silverado Trail, the resort rambles over 1,200 oak-flanked acres. At the end of the main drive is a striking white mansion with original details that hark back to its days as the residence of senator and former Union general John F. Miller. Original plantation-style details remain intact, with opulent gold, granite and hardwood accents adding modern glamour. The resort features four secluded sections offering unique accommodations, each with its own private outdoor area. Starting at 240 square feet, the 380 rooms feature contemporary decor with bright cream colors and polished hardwoods. Spacious Mansion and Cottage suites have been tactfully redone, with intimate sitting areas featuring wood-burning corner fireplaces and modern furnishings, plus fully updated and equipped kitchens with stainless steel appliances and fixtures. Between laps in one of the 10 outdoor pools and perfecting your swing on one of the 13 tennis courts, you can tap into the more than 400 wineries along the verdant Silverado Trail, play 18 holes at one of the two championship courses, or soothe your golfer’s elbow with the 80-minute Silverado Relaxation Massage at the fully equipped spa across the street. Then unwind at the Mansion Lounge’s wine hour while taking in the views of the verdant Mayacama Mountainside.
In the Area
Located on a secluded strip of the scenic 29-mile Silverado Trail, the resort is within a short drive of more than 400 top Napa Valley wineries. The beloved Cabernets at Silver Oak are buzzworthy for their upfront oak and fruity full bodies, and the red varieties at St. Helena’s Colgin Cellars are as enchanting as the rolling vineyard and mountain views. For a slice of history, make your way up to Calistoga for a tasting at Chateau Montelena, the Napa winery that inspired the movie Bottle Shock. Toss a cork in any direction in Napa Valley and you’re bound to hit a Michelin-starred restaurant. Try your luck with snagging a reservation at French Laundry. Or opt for one of Thomas Keller’s more affordable establishments, like buzzy Ad Hoc. Continue about 12 miles north to St. Helena for the three-starred Restaurant at Meadowood, which has one of the most highly regarded tasting menus (with the hefty price tag to prove it). Smaller budgets will appreciate local favorite Farmstead and Long Meadow Ranch (try the caramelized beets and grilled California rainbow trout).
How to Get There
Although nearly any hotel in Napa Valley can claim a lovely location, the Silverado Resort is essentially a neighborhood, so one might find a room with an excellent location or a room with a view of a walled patio and nothing else. The grounds are attractive and well maintained, as was our room, but the room was small. The bed was comfortable, but a lot of light bled through the curtains. The thermostat did not work properly, so the furnace cycled on too rapidly all night long -- despite the unit being switched to off. The flush valve in the toilet leaked, so the toilet also cycled. I reported the two maintenance issues, and the staffer agreed to "make a note," apparently the note was not passed along to anyone willing or able to solve the problems, because neither was fixed before our second (and final) night on the property. Check-in and check-out were quick, and we experienced no significant external nose -- although any noise might have been masked by the noises from inside the room!
This is my first time to the resort, and I will say that people are the thing that makes the experience, and tonight was no exception. I had the honor to attend a dining event where Edward, Tyler and Jeff were tending bar. These guys are top shelf in the way they take care of you. There were times, I looked up to order a drink and they already had it at my table as though I was some sort of regular. You can't find service like that in many places anymore. Take care of these guys by just being cool to them and they will bend over backwards to return the favor. Thanks guys!!!! Tonight's experience was priceless.
Well I stayed at the Silverado Resort and Spa for a business meeting. We all had a great time at Silverado this week and got a chance to see the Napa Valley for the first time. I’m glad we stayed at Silverado Resort for how accommodating the whole staff was. But more that anyone I have to say the the Bartenders Edward, Jeff and Tyler are the most personable and professional bartenders I have ever met. Thanks guys!!
I go to a lot of sales meetings each year and see a lot of hotels and different staff at events. Most of time I am underwhelmed at meetings with the service and the attention to details.
In my 3 days at the Silverado Resort and Spa all of the employees have gone above and beyond to make me feel like I am welcomed at the resort.
Of all the employees each night at our receptions Ed, Jeff and Tyler have gone above and beyond to make us feel welcome and remember us each night. It is just like being at your local watering hole with the people you enjoy spending time with.
I would encourage everyone to come and do their events at Silverado!
Thanks Team Silverado!
Can't wait to stay here again. Everyone was so friendly and helpful with the booking. Used one of the couples getaway packages that was amazingly. Beautiful resort and everything from golf to the spa was amazing.
