We stayed one night at the Wydown because we wanted to visit a few wineries on foot. We had stayed at the Andaz in downtown Napa the night before, so our expectations were high. With an AAA discount, our one night's stay was around $400 (similar but more than the Andaz). We knew it would be high because we were... More

If you are looking for a quaint hotel with great rooms, but an even better location, this is a place to try. St. Helena is a great town in Napa Valley and from Wydown you can walk everywhere in the town. There are no amenities like a restaurant and bar at the hotel but that worked out fine since we... More

This is a lovely hotel. However, for the price we paid, I can only say it was OK. For the price, I was expected to be blown away (2 nights were over $900). For that price, I expected a few more amenities. However, first let me say that the staff is amazing and very friendlly. The room was beautifully appointed... More

I was very happy with this hotel. Service from the beginning was excellent and some of the best we've experienced in our visits to the US. It was personal but not invasive. I liked that parking and wifi were included. The rooms are very comfortable and the bed was so comfy. Shower pressure good and good quality toiletries. My only... More

Most hotels in the St. Helena, California area are either pretty much over the top in their offerings (and their cost) or the opposite (but overpriced). The Wydown bridges this gap in fine style. The Wydown is a nice boutique hotel basically in the center of St. Helena. The rooms are decent size, modern, well appointed, quiet and comfortable, and... More

My husband and I had been wanting to do a trip to Napa for a while but had always heard things about the area being pretentious or intimidating. NOT TRUE AT ALL and the Wydown Hotel was a perfect choice for us. Close to everything - shops and restaurants - in the adorable town of St. Helena, once we parked... More

The Wydown provided us with a great location for a recent wedding and wine tour trip. The hotel has an intimate feel but the rooms were very spacious and newly updated. The hallways are a bit noisy the wood floors don't absorb the noise and we could hear people clomping and going all night. A bit pricey with no real... More

We stayed one night at the Wydown and found everything to work well. We stayed in Room 1 which was spacious and had a pull out sofa which allowed for a third person to stay in the room. The parking in back is very convenient and the hotel is on the Main Street in St Helena and walkable to all... More

If you are looking for a small, boutique hotel right in the middle of the charming town of St. Helena and you don't mind spending a bit more, then this is the place. Great location, good service, clean, modern rooms with bathrooms that have shower stalls with glass enclosures (as opposed to shower curtains). Parking is located off the back... More

My daughter and I stayed here one night while visiting Napa. This hotel is fabulous!! Very comfortable,modern and great location. We walked to Market Restaurant ( across street) for delicious dinner and wine. There's plenty of boutique shops all in easy walking distance too. Would definitely return again!
