We had stayed previously in the River Plaza Bldg. and this time wanted to experience a room in the historic Hatt Building. Our 2nd floor room was quiet, just as I'd requested, and featured a canopied King bed with an extremely comfortable mattress. There were 2 arm chairs and a large cushioned ottoman, 2 bureau chests, a writing desk, flat panel TV and gas fireplace. The one small window let in just a bit of light, so the room remained fairly dark throughout the day--but I appreciated the fact that the original windows were retained in this historic bldg. Another charming element was the original tongue and groove wood flooring. Amongst the numerous amenities in our room: an in-room safe, coffee maker, electric tea pot, (2) phones, wine glasses, hairdryer, and lots of nice, thick bath towels. The very spacious tiled bath had a slipper tub for soaking and a BIG walk-in shower with 2 shower heads and fold-down seat (the room was handicapped accessible).
The only "complaints/suggestions" would be to add towel racks since there were few places to hang our towels, and to include a small table in the room where we could eat breakfast. As it was, my husband had to hunch over the ottoman and I just stood up to eat with the breakfast tray on the bed. (Our Plaza room had a table out on the balcony so we were able to have breakfast there). Also, my cup of coffee wasn't very hot when it arrived (an individual carafe would keep it hot), and my breakfast sandwich was a bit soggy.
The 2nd floor had a large, comfortable sitting room that would be quite a nice place for a group or extended family to gather and relax together. The professional service provided by the friendly hotel staff was faultless. We loved the beautifully maintained grounds and lush plantings (roses in November!), the artwork and sculptures on the premises, the charming shops and Silo’s jazz club in the Napa Mill complex, the adjacent River Walkway, Riverfront shops, and the very close proximity to restaurants and other popular venues in Napa town (like Oxbow Market, the Opera House and the Wine Train).
We dined at Celadon and Ubuntu (which were both excellent), and it was also a very short walk to Morimoto, Fish Story, Bounty Hunter, Zuzu, Cole's Chop House and other great restaurants. Be assured that during your stay at Napa River Inn, you’ll be able to park your car (for free) and just leave it there till you’re ready to travel on!
