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
We had the pleasure of staying there 2 nights July 5-7. The centrally located hotel was simply wonderful, from the staff at the front desk, the concierge as well as the Spa Receptionist. The BEST happy hour was in the hotel's sports bar and dinner also in the same hotel specializing in oysters and local wines. The rooms as tastefully decorated, beds comfortable, and sitting area small and comfortable. We LOVED the small intimate pool area which had a great yellow and black decor. We bought our own small cooler (bought just for this trip, as we spend 10 days in wine region) and filled it with our favourite wines and sparkling water not to mention local cheeses and fruit to enjoy by the pool. We would highly recommend this great hotel which is deemed a heritage building by the city.
Our party of four just got back from our 3 night stay at this hotel! Each hotel room is decorated differently which I thought was a cute personal touch. The pool and jacuzzi area was very relaxing and the restaurant attached was very delicious. We had vouchers for breakfast every morning which was very good! I also loved that our room keys were an old school actual key and not a normal thin plastic key like most hotels. Only 2 small negatives that some people may not like but it didn't bother me much. 1) There is not an elevator, but its only 2 floors, so you only have a few steps. 2) the hallways were a tad creepy to me, I think they could be spruced up some. I kept waiting for 2 twin girls to pop out like the movie the shining.😂. For dinner I would highly recommend Sam's Social club right down the street. It was expensive but some of the best food I have ever had! If traveling to Napa I would highly recommend staying here in Calistoga instead and it is a short drive to Napa. It is a very quaint town and hotel.
As if Calistoga couldn't get any better, my Fiance and I discovered Mount View hotel this last trip and I've gotta say we might have found our go-to hotel from now on! Gorgeous hotel, nice pool, good food/bar, and amazing service. Matthew took very good care of us! I recommend Mount View highly if you are in the area and looking for a perfect stay in beautiful Calistoga-
My husband and I are celebrating our 10-year anniversary. Everybody there was so friendly. Matt the Manager was so accommodating.Everyone of the staff members was friendly! The Restaurant attached to it was great! We had an amazing time! Would recommend this to anybody.
Wish we could have stayed longer!
We had a two day stay here. Hotel was clean and the staff is friendly and accommodating. The room was standard size and quite comfortable. Nice beds AND pillows. Nice pool and plenty of outdoor areas for lounging. This hotel is on the Historic Register so if you stay on the 2nd floor, there is no elevator. Again, the staff is very helpful. Best kept secret is Johnny’s bar in the hotel. Daily happy hour specialty cocktails and really good food. Example: excellent housemade margarita $7 and melt in your mouth carnitas tacos for $2. Guests also receive a $20 coupon for breakfast at Johnny’s which is also outstanding. There is also a full service restaurant on site, but we never got there because the bar food is so good! Highly recommended if you are trying to relax and get away.
