Wine, dine and relax in the US wine capital

As the wine capital of the US, Napa Valley needs no introduction, but the town of Napa is still a mystery to some. Having experienced a major renaissance over the last decade, downtown Napa has boomed -- becoming the ultimate culinary destination with more than 70 restaurants all within walking distance of our downtown boutique hotel. Recently named the Happiest City in the U.S. according to 10 million geo-targeted tweets, Napa is home to 20 plus wine tasting rooms, three major event venues and recreation along its namesake river. Napa boasts more pre-1906 structures than any other Bay Area city, adding character and charm through Italianate, Victorian Gothic, Spanish Colonial, Classical Revival, and Art Deco styles.
