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
The best Andaz I have been to (better than Tokyo, Liverpool, and Shanghai)
The staff was so nice, gave us a glass of wine when we checked in.
We stayed at the Tower Suite and it couldn't have been better. A short walk to Oxbow Market and a 20 minute drive to all the best vineyards in Napa
This Hyatt Hotel is a great option if you are looking for a nice place to stay in downtown Napa. Staff were all professional, helpful and courteous. Standard King Rooms are clean and comfortable although a bit on the smallish side. The elevators and hallways are dimly lit but I guess that is a design feature. No fitness center or pool on premises however they do provide a shuttle and access to a local fitness center. 2nd floor outdoor sitting area is a nice place to hangout. Multitude of restaurants and bars within easy walking distance of the hotel. $30 per day Resort Fee includes free parking, wifi, wine tasting and welcome gifts. Be sure to ask about this at check-in as they don't seem to provide these items unless you ask for them.
Very nice hotel conveniently located in downtown Napa and walking distance to many fine restaurants. Hotel Terrace Bar with fire pit was a great place to unwind and relax. Friendly and courteous staff, who attended to our needs.
