Napa Valley may be the world’s most exclusive agricultural area, but there’s nothing rural about the digs here. Forgoing the gilded grapevine décor of many a wine country property, Andaz’s lobby is a mélange of leather, velour, dark marble, blonde wood and glass. Rooms, done in soothing shades of beige, moss and pale eggplant, are generously sized, with chocolate leather headboards and partitions between the living and sleeping areas. White marble bathrooms have large walk-in showers with rainfall heads and some have deep-soak tubs for two. Upper-floor rooms have lovely views of the mountains and, in the mornings, offer peeks of colorful hot-air balloons floating above the ridge. Top-notch bubbles and signature cocktails are on offer at on-site wine bar Mercantile Social; stay at the communal table for the menu of seasonal small plates, or head up to the second-floor terrace and relax with a nightcap around the fire pit or on a porch swing. The locavore fare at the Farmer’s Table restaurant is a solid dine-in option after a long day of adventures.
In the Area
Downtown Napa’s coming-out party is nearly complete. For years, the town that lends the famed valley its name has been overshadowed by Michelin-star-blessed Yountville and the spa haven of Calistoga. But Napa has more than come into its own now with tasting rooms, modern hotels and high-end restaurants. The ingredient-driven Italian fare served at Oenotri is, of course, the perfect complement to a bottle of wine, but the bar also mixes some of the best cocktails around. If wine is what you’re after, tour Farella Vineyards, just a few miles away in the up-and-coming Coombsville area, or take a trip over to picturesque Domaine Carneros for a glass of California bubbly by Taittinger. Most of all, leave the driving to someone else: Pure Luxury Wine Tours will drive you up and down the valley in one of their limos, with stops for tastings and lunch.
How to Get There
Our room was just right, quiet, all the amenities available although the hanging space is very small, but managed to accommodate for that. Bed comfortable, and food delicious. Staff friendly, but on occasion a little lacking in attention to detail.
Scot the manager solved the small problems we had on a couple of issues, and all was well in the end. Come to this loverly hotel, and if you run into a problem speak to Scot.
First time at Napa Valley Andaz is lovely hotel in great location of downtown area. Wonderful staff, Breaskfast was very good but no gym, Free parking is back of Hotel easy. Price is average. We enjoyed.
Brilliant location in Napa Downtown. Beautiful hotel with lovely red or white wine on arrival. The staff don't wear a uniform so it is hard to work out who is working and who are tourists. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we received a lovely chilled bottle of Chandon to our room. The room is not the biggest but you spend most of your time visiting the wineries so all good. The outdoor bar area has a delightful fire pit which keeps you very warm for late night drinks. There are so many good restaurants nearby but the food from room service is also high standard.
A short walk to the Napa Wine Train station and the Oxbow Markets.
We would definitely stay here again
One of the less memorable not great Napa experiences. Would never stay here again. The hotel is confusing, lot of young people yet the outdoor area shuts down at 9;30pm (even though the say 10pm) still incredibly early. The service from the bar to breakfast operates at the pace of the Bahamas. Incredibly slow, no sense of urgency or customer service. Housekeeping needs lessons on how to make a bed, I could do better. Nothing is free except some cheap carbohydrates snacks. Want coffee in the morning? Get dressed and walk somewhere else. Typed this while waiting 15 minutes at the bar to get a $3 cup of drip coffee. Ahh and now my turn to order and they are out of drip coffee. My advice find another place.
I was blown away by this hotel. It is modern/cool/hip. It's spotless. It's outdoor space on the second floor terrace is amazing. The breakfast at the hotel is fabulous--healthy, fresh, delicious. Every single person who worked there was helpful and seemed really happy at what they were doing--to me that speaks volumes--they must really like working there and it shows. The location is excellent--a short walk away on spotless city streets are any number of dining options. I'd be hard pressed to go to any other hotel when staying in Napa.
