For most, California‘s Napa brings one thing to mind: wine. But the city itself has plenty to offer, with its many excellent restaurants and bars sitting alongside historic attractions such as the Sam Kee Laundry Building and the old Napa Mill. The delights are matched by its exceptional range of accommodation. From wine lodges and rural retreats to unique boutiques, these are the best hotels in and around Napa.

Napa’s not all about countryside and vineyards, and this downtown boutique allows you to explore the superb restaurants and shops of the city itself. Modern four-posters and balcony fireplaces set a luxurious tone in the suites, while the Sky & Vine Rooftop Bar is a scenic spot to enjoy a glass of wine, with fire pits to keep you toasty during the winter.

The rugged adobe walls, terracotta tiled roofs and heavy oak doors give North Block a Spanish Mission feel, which extends to the luxurious bedrooms. The European influence can also be felt in the food, with tasting packages pairing high-end cheese and prosciutto with top Napa wines. The pool area and hot tub are particularly inviting after a day in the country air, and the spa uses organic local ingredients, like ground grape seeds, in a range of wellness treatments.

    Sitting pretty on the Napa Waterfront in the 1860s Historic Napa Mill, the River Inn is almost as old as its surroundings, having opened in 1901. The rooms maintain a heritage style, with clawfoot bathtubs and retro couches, and fresh pastries are delivered to your door daily from Napa favorite Sweetie Pies Bakery. The 20-plus wine tasting rooms within walking distance in downtown Napa should divert you for a while, and wine tours can also be arranged to countryside producers further afield.

    As the site of Napa Valley’s first gourmet restaurant, in some ways Auberge du Soleil is where it all began – and it’s still flying the flag nearly three decades on, holding a Michelin star for its superb French cuisine (try the duck with verjus-poached quince). The beautiful, high-ceilinged rooms have French doors opening onto balconies overlooking the vineyards, while the spa offers botanical facial treatments, aromatic massages and personalized yoga classes.
