“Quality hotel in a great location in downtown Napa”
Reviewed 7 January 2011

Elegant rooms, with high quality finishings, great bed. We had a view over the river (although being on the ground floor we had to have our blinds down to protect our privacy from the people walking along the riverside path). We loved the Sweetie Pie bakery-style breakfast which was included in the price. We also signed up for the Dinner package, which had a higher room rate but we got $100 certificate per room per night for one of four nearby restaurants. We worried that there may be some "catch" in being able to use the certificate but there was none that we could find - you just had to use it all up at one sitting. That made this expensive hotel more modest in price.

My husband and I first stayed at the Napa River Inn in 2009 for our wedding in Napa. We came back this year for our anniversary and loved it just as much...if not more, than before. The hotel is in a great location, among not only downtown and riverfront Napa, Oxbow, etc., but also boasts many great attractions within the complex itself.

Sweetie Pies for breakfast or a snack will not disappoint (their pastry case is baffling), the General Store contains many great gifts, the candy shop on premises will not disappoint your sweet tooth; and if those weren't enough, there are two 3 other places to eat all within the complex; from casual to fine dining. Though not tried personally, the hotel also has it's own Spa.

When staying at this hotel, you will be within walking distance of great downtown activities & sites. Staying here will leave you feeling like a king or queen, especially if you book a historic room. The amenities are generous and very good quality. Historic rooms boast claw foot tubs, fireplaces, and two-person showers! The luxuriously appointed beds are very soft and cozy, but I'm only giving four stars because sometimes noise from neighbors or hallways can wake you up (though this is normal for hotels).

If you want to have a memorable time staying in Napa, don't pass this hotel by. Sometimes a killer deal can even be found on Expedia if the rates seem to high. Don't worry, it's totally worth every penny and won't cost you an arm & a leg like many other top quality resorts will.

What a lovely historic hotel. Staff and management were friendly and attentive. Our fireplace room was very relaxing and cozy. We reserved the dinner package and enjoyed a most wonderful dinner at Rotisserie and Wine (Tyler Florence's restaurant) on the water front. Tyler was there inspecting all of the plates going out to insure excellent quality. Nice touch. We brought wine with us from home and this enhanced our enjoyment. I work in the wine industry in neighboring Sonoma County and will definetely recommend this Hotel to guest looking for a quality Napa experience. Happy New Year!
Loved that they had a stereo for our ipod. That was especially nice.

We hadn't been to downtown Napa for many years so we were pleasantly surprised to see how nice it is now. Many of the old buildings have been renovated and have become interesting shops and restaurants. The Napa River Inn is in the historic Hatt building. It's been beautifully updated while retaining the original charm and character. The front desk staff were very professional and accommodating. I asked if it would be possible to get a quiet room and the next thing we knew we were upgraded to a quiet, spacious room in the adjacent building (the Embarcadero building). The room had a river view and a fireplace and was very comfortable. Breakfast was provided by Sweetie Pie bakery downstairs...great scones, muffins etc. The inn gave us discount cards for several wineries in the valley so we tried a couple. We also took some nice hikes in Alston Park and Westhills Park. Dinner at Wine & Rotisserie was delicious. All in all a wonderful getaway. We'll definitely be back and highly recommend the Napa River Inn.

We stayed at the Napa River Inn overnight for our company Holiday Party. Dinner at Celedon was fabulous and our party went off really nicely. But, oh my, what a lovely stay at the Napa River Inn!

Everything offered at the Napa River Inn from the greeting at the reception desk to the room service was first class. This is a well appointed, nicely decorated and unfussy hotel that I certainly recommend. We really enjoyed the river view and the fireplace and hearing the Wine Country Train go by was charming.

Next time you visit the wine country don't forget to go downtown for a little shopping. The Oxbow Market on First is a delight. And of course, you really must stay at the Napa River Inn.
