Where to Stay in Napa Valley

When it comes to choosing where to stay in Napa Valley, there is plenty to choose from. Though towns like Yountville and Calistoga have grown in popularity and are worth visiting, you can’t go wrong in the place where it all started – historic downtown Napa. Each of California’s wine country towns has plenty to offer, including hundreds of acres of vineyards, great restaurants, quaint shops, world-class spas, and an abundance of that laid-back charm Napa Valley is so famous for. 

If this is your first visit to the area, choosing where to stay in Napa Valley is essential – and we think it’s best to start near Napa. Napa is known as the “heart” of wine country, and for a good reason. Napa’s historic downtown is one of the most scenic, located on a bustling river promenade filled with restaurants and shops. It’s a wonderful place to explore when you aren’t busy visiting the area vineyards. 

So you’ve settled on Napa as an excellent place for shopping, dining, and general ambiance. But how about where to stay in Napa Valley for the most accessible wine tasting? The answer to that is also Napa. Napa has an exquisite collection of wine-tasting rooms, meaning you don’t even have to leave town and deal with traffic, directions, or any of the hassle of driving to enjoy some of the best wine produced by local vineyards.
