Best hotels in Napa

Napa Introduction

Napa's picturesque promenade along the river and backdrop of rolling hills sets the stage for an idyllic wine country getaway. The surrounding valley overflows with vineyards and hundreds of wineries in the region offer tours, but there's plenty else to do here, too. Play a round of golf, paddle down the Napa River, or hike woodsy trails on warm summer days. The downtown dining scene is heavy on Mediterranean flavors and a wine bar or tasting room is never far away.

Hotels in Napa

Whether you're looking for a small inn with plush designs, garden tubs, and a tasty, homecooked breakfast each morning, or prefer a larger resort and spa with a health club and on-site pool and lounge deck, you'll find a Napa hotel perfect for your wine country getaway. Luxury Napa hotels and cozy bed-and-breakfasts are common downtown, but you'll find a few budget-friendly properties as you move away from the riverfront. Cheap Napa hotel deals mostly come in the form of chain motels and lodges with double rooms and amenities like pools and fitness centers.

Where to stay

Downtown Napa is the perfect hub for a vacation in the valley, with lots of wine tours and excursions departing from here. The Napa River flows through the heart of the city, and tons of local wineries, high-end shops, art galleries, and Mediterranean restaurants fill the blocks around a waterfront promenade. On the outskirts of town, accommodations take advantage of the hilly setting, with resorts and estate homes set on spacious plots of land overlooking vineyards. Yountville, 10 miles north, is a bit quieter, with boutique hotels, wine shops, and cafes in a small-town setting.

Things to see

Home to hundreds of vineyards, the Napa Valley is known as a wine-lovers destination, and the town of Napa is a great base for tours and tastings in the region. Wine tours here take many forms – from luxury train rides with gourmet meals along the way to bicycle tours that combine exercise, fresh air, and views of rolling hills with stops for sips. Tons of local wineries welcome visitors, whether a small, family-run operation or a large, Italian-style castle. Be sure to save some time for downtown Napa, where the Riverfront Promenade is full of arts venues, fashion boutiques, and fine dining. On the Napa River, you can rent a kayak or stand-up paddleboard or charter a boat for a sunset cruise. Nearby Westwood Hills Park is ideal for picnics in grassy meadows and hikes through oak forests, with an on-site nature museum about the flora and fauna found here.
