Forget beach fronts or snow-capped mountains. When you come to the Napa Valley, the premium views are of rolling, vine-covered hills – and with the right room, you could swear that you’re in Tuscany or Bordeaux. Here are six Napa Valley hotels that offer some of the best views available. Just be sure to request your preference when making your reservation.
Poetry Inn, Napa. Perched on a hillside in the iconic Stags Leap district, the expansive rooms of this luxury property all face west across the valley floor to the Mayacamas range. Five luxury rooms.
Auberge du Soleil, Rutherford. This Relais & Chateaux resort is tucked into the hills mid-valley, with spectacular southern vistas all the way to Napa. 50 rooms, suites, and private “maisons.”
Harvest Inn, St. Helena. It’s located right on the valley floor, but the Vineyard View Terrace and many of the rooms offer views directly out onto the surrounding vines owned by Whitehall Lane Winery. The hotel features 78 rooms in five distinct “neighborhoods,” 22 of which are in the Vineyard View Collection and boast beautiful vineyard views.
Las Alcobas, St. Helena. This brand-new venue is adjacent to the historic Beringer Vineyards winery and its vineyards, visible from many of the rooms. 68 rooms and suites.
Wine Country Inn, St. Helena. This longtime favorite bed and breakfast is surrounded by oaks, pines, and rolling vineyards – many of them owned by nearby Freemark Abbey. Five cottages, four suites, and 20 guestrooms.
Chateau de Vie, Calistoga. Set just north of Calistoga, this elegant bed and breakfast sits among three acres of vines that produce its estate Cabernet. You’ll also love the breathtaking views of the Palisades mountains. Three guest rooms and two junior suites.
