Wine-inspired interiors complement the Old Hollywood charm at this sophisticated sleep in downtown Calistoga. Silver screen stars such as Ingrid Bergman and Carole Lombard once slept here, and you can see why. The stylish rooms and suites are done in a dramatic, moody palette, with nouveau baroque details like damask print wallpaper, button-back headboards and dark hardwood furnishings. Your Napa Valley wine tour begins in the artist wine cottages, each uniquely designed and styled for a boutique winery, such as the crimson Peju Province, which features a private patio with a semiprivate outdoor Jacuzzi. Foodies can feast on Italian fare at Barolo, or California farm-to-table cuisine at JoLe, where husband-and-wife duo Matt and Sonjia Spector offer inventive à la carte dishes in addition to four-, five- and six-course tasting menus. Intimate lounge areas invite guests to socialize during a Friday evening wine tasting and watch indie flicks on the big screen during select movie nights. Care to chill instead? You can take in the dry Calistoga air from a poolside lounger, then get a mineral or mud bath treatment at the hydrotherapy spa.
In the Area
In the northeastern corner of rural Napa Valley, the unassuming town of Calistoga has a modest and friendly air that suits its verdant vineyards and natural hot springs. The restorative waters can cure any wine-induced stupor, and you can have the experience right on-site with a mineral or mud bath treatment at Mount View’s fully equipped spa. Well-heeled oenophiles join locals for farm-to-table fare at JoLe Restaurant, while beer enthusiasts delight in Napa’s lesser-known craft at Calistoga Inn Restaurant & Brewery. For a slice of history, go for a tasting at Chateau Montelena, the legendary Napa winery whose world class Cabernet, Sauvignon and Zinfandel inspired the movie Bottle Shock. For scenic Napa Valley views, make a date with Somerston Wine Company, which offers buggy rides in all-terrain vehicles through 200 acres of vines and hot springs. Looking for higher ground? Book an early morning tour with Napa Valley Balloons for prime wine country panoramas. Verdant Bothe-Napa Valley State Park features a mile-long trail that will take you through a Douglas fir forest and past the 19th-century Bale Grist Mill.
How to Get There
Looking at my other reviews..and thinking the spa and hotel was two different business...I had to rewrite and give the hotel a Five Star..However, I do stand by my massage with Rosa..too fast..did not work on problem areas which I requested. And the massage was a bit pricey for the quality. I get massages on a regular bases at home.
On the other hand the hotel is amazing..front desk staff very helpful ..the location is always great..you can park your car...walk around town or take a shuttle..See you next year!!
We went to Calistoga to enjoy our winter wine passport which allowed us to do free wine tasting in 17 wineries. I picked this hotel because of its central location. We were able to do wine tasting in 7 tasting rooms without having to drive. There are also restaurants near the hotel. They have 2 bar and restaurant on their first floor. The staff was attentive and helpful. The pastries and pour over coffee in the morning was excellent. Although they have renovated, the hotel building is old. The bathrooms are not marble/granite counter tops but rather 1 inch tiles. We were on the 1st floor by the side of their parking lot so you could hear people as they walk by. They have ear plugs available for your use. I wouldn’t classify this as a luxury stay but rather a comfortable one.
We had twin bed accommodation & beds were very comfortable. Bathroom was spacious and perfect.
The free breakfast was sufficient and having the water station was very helpful.
Location of the hotel is perfect for walking around the town.
I came here for workshop and had no idea that there was a pool and spa. Wish I had booked more time and brought my gear. Calistoga is a delightful small town. There are many spa options nearby as well as great wineries. The rooms are colorful and lovely.
I had an inner courtyard facing room which as quiet. There are rooms with larger seating areas which looked spacious. The pool area has outdoor seating so could enjoy lunch and relaxation in the sun. There is a jacuzzi. Truly enjoy the lite breakfast croissant and coffee. Easy walking to grocery store and shopping. Many restaurants are in easy walking distance. The bar scene at night is lively.
We enjoyed the presidential suite and the great amenities of this hotel. 2nd time back and the manger remembered us from the prior visit. We missed the tasting experience the first time. This time we were met by Larry Hyson in the tasting room and experienced a flight of One Hope Wine and Krug. Larry made us feel like we were sitting at a friends enjoying a taste. Amazing experience. Thank you Mt. View for being our home away from home.
