If million-dollar views, high thread counts, and spotless service are among your favorite things, just say Napa Valley. We’re proud to be home to more Michelin Stars (10), AAA Diamonds (54) and Forbes Travel Guide Stars (74) than any other wine region in the U.S. for our restaurants, lodging properties, and resort spas.
And in February, St. Helena’s Meadowood Napa Valley earned a rare triple Five-Star award from Forbes Travel Guide, the world’s only independent global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas. It joined an elite group of only 13 hotels in the world to receive all three five-star designations (hotel, restaurant, and spa) at the same property.
So, if you’re keeping count, here’s how our luxury properties stack up:
Meadowood Napa Valley, St. Helena. Five-star Forbes Travel Guide Awards for lodging, restaurant, and spa; three Michelin Stars for its Restaurant at Meadowood; five AAA Diamonds for the Restaurant at Meadowood and four AAA Diamonds for the hotel. (Also shown in cover photo)
