Okay, I have been looking at which wineries and tastings or tours... But, where I am completely drawing a blank is where to stay. Just a couple of nights. Looking to stay within a reasonable budget, so the nicer Inns, and locations other than Napa, are probably out of reach. But, we are looking for a nice experience.
To be honest, before doing further research, I was happy to be leaning towards Villo Bello. We could get a full 1-BR unit there for about the same price as some of these others, using coupon code. The reviews show no complaints about the rooms being dated... but photos seem to indicate that they have not been renovated. Recent photos look exactly the same as photos from several years ago. And, one recent review mentions 'new rooms'????
We don’t mind getting just a room, if it is a nice sized room at a nice resort...
We do prefer something with some exterior opening, small patio/balcony, or even larger windows that can be opened.
I am reading that somebody got Andaz on Priceline for a great rate... But, to be honest, for the regular price, the photos of the room do not do much for me. (except they are supposed to have really good bathrooms)
Wonder if we could find a good rate somewhere for the Marriott. It looks nice.
Embassy Suites is supposed to have a good location to hit the road on winery tours... and include breakfast. But, that awful, busy gray and yellow, wallpaper is enough to make me write them off. Silly, I know! (I wonder if one could get them for a much better rate on priceline?)
Love the thought of 1801 First Luxury Inn. Seems nice with incredible breakfast and evening wine and cheese pairings. But, the location, right on a street-corner in a busy neighborhood thoroughfare, that concerns me. Any thoughts on this, from those who are familiar with the area? Would it seem like we are staying in a person's house, in a close neighborhood? We are not huge B&B people. But, I wonder if this might be closer to saying at a small Inn.
Any input would be helpful. Thanks!Edited: 17 March 2014, 14:22
