We stayed here for 5 nights for our mini-moon, and had a great time. The hotel was charming and was walking distance from downtown napa and the market. The rooms were lovely and we had nice view of the river. It was both quiet enough to be romantic, but close enough to the sights and entertainment to feel still part... More

We stayed here off of a TA review. The hotel is situated in a very convenient area and there are great choices for food literally right at your doorstep. The rooms are generous, clean but a little quirky. You are right on the river and its a nice relaxing view if you happen to have a room on the second... More

Dear Nebuliza, Having such great restaurants literally right out our door is pretty special. Did you find one that stood out for your above the others? In the Historic Mill property there is French-influenced (bacon-wrapped roasted chicken!); global comfort food (day boat scallops and mashed potatoes); and enjoyable patio seating for breakfast on the river. We are half a block... More

Despite growing up and attending law school in the sf bay area I'd never actually been to Napa proper. My family used to vacation at Bodega Bay and I'd been in the vicinity to dine at French Laundry, but never Napa itself. After I attended a wedding in Sebastopol, my companion and I booked Napa River Inn via Hotel Tonight... More

This property is (in a word) lovely. Simply lovely. The accommodations are spacious, well-appointed, and completely comfortable. Staff are engaging and responsive. The views from the riverside and corner rooms are fabulous. Walking to local nightlife and dining makes it a very relaxing trip, too.

This is the second time I've stayed at the Napa River in and looks like the first I was not disappointed in the least. I was greeted at the entrance by the Bellman who spoke via microphone to the front desk and alerted them to my arrival. I received a complimentary wine tasting and enjoyed a complimentary bottle of wine... More

Dear Charles A., It sounds like you stayed in one of our historic rooms. There are only seven of these rooms available and they are supper romantic. The king beds have canopies and are situated in large rooms with fireplaces. The bathrooms have beautiful slipper tubs perfect for bubble baths. The flooring is an amazing piece of history -- the...

The NAPA River Inn is located in the heart of NAPA, walking distance to the finest restaurants and local tasting rooms. As my party traveled there in Feb., we were able to make same day dinner reservation at Celadon, Angele, Bounty Hunter, Grace’s Table and Marimoto where we saw the famous owner/chef. We took a Platypus wine tour that was... More

This is a pretty spot for a day or two, where you can step outside the inn's doors and take a walk along the riverfront, or shop, or find some really good restaurants right next door. Napa is quieter than I thought it would be, so this is as close to "action" as you will get. We had a tiny... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Napa River Inn! The buildings were beautiful and the location was great! We loved sitting out on the patio and enjoying the river views (although we did get kicked out of the common area for being out too late!)! The breakfast situation was great too! We wish we could have stayed longer!
