“Romantic getaway.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2006

My husband and I stayed for three nights at this beautiful and romantic Inn located in the town of Napa and walking (but not too close) to the downtown area. Apart from being a truly beautiful and luxurious bed and breakfast, the service was outstanding. Each of the staff members (and they have a different one every day) went out of their way to make sure that we were comfortable. They offer early evening happy hours with scumptious appetizers and wines from local vineyards..... each day from a different vineyard. The breakfast is really out of this world.... absolute gourmet! I recommend this B&B highly and intend to return. Check out the website and see for yourselves!!!!! -----

The home itself was very cozy and nice. The breakfast was good. The rooms were clean but not spotless. We had a okay stay at the Inn. Everything was average and okay. We just wanted to say that it is NOT a Luxury Inn. If you are looking for luxury or first class professional service this is not the place. There are many little things that put you in a class of luxury and just putting the word in you name is not one of them. We will stay at another place when we go back to Napa. I am posting this because we use Trip Advisor in making our choices and I am trying to keep things accurate.

My Wife & Myself spent a fantastic 15th aniversary stay at 1801 First. We had the garden room, off by itself, very romantic.

We enjoyed the afternoon complimentary wine & hor's devoures and the great suggestions for dinner from our hosts.

A short walk every night for dinner & drinks (5 blocks or so).

Beautiful weather all of our stay.

We biked between the vineyards and sampled wines, used Napa Valley Bike tours, they did an excellent job taking great care of us.

Breakfasts each morning were fantastic !!

I would go there again at my next chance.

I highly recommend it !!

My husband and I loved our stay at the 1801 First Luxury Inn in Napa, CA. We stayed for four wonderful nights. I wish it could have been longer, but we will definitely return! The staff were so welcoming, kind, and helpful. They offered to make all the reservations we needed, and they made shipping our wine home a very easy process. Our room was immaculately clean, and the bed linens were so comfortable that the only thing that motivated me to get up in the morning was the promise of an amazing breakfast in the main house! I definitely recommend 1801 if you are looking for something upscale with a friendly and laid back atmosphere. You certainly won't be disappointed.

Not only are the accomodations sumptuous and comfortable. The staff is top notch, incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, and more hospitable than in any bed and breakfast which I've experienced.

We spent two days of our honeymoon in this little gem and had the most delicious breakfasts we've ever experienced. Ideally located near Sonoma (shopping, history, museums), Napa (great restaurants and nightlife), and Wine country (no explanation necessary!) - my wife and I would HIGHLY recommend staying here. In fact, since we live in the Bay Area, we intend to spend many anniversaries here in the future.

We chose 1801 First after reading many reviews on Trip Advisor. We have stayed in about 6 or 7 first class inns, but we enjoyed 1801 First by far the most. The place is beautiful with contemporary colors. The place is spotless and it was hard to decide whether to relax in the beautiful parlour/living room or in our room. The staff members were outstanding - I have never been at a place where the staff was so pleasant, friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were way too good! It was so nice to have choices and also flexibility with the time. Other places we stayed had one specific time and if you were late they seemed annoyed. Not here - basically you could eat anytime between 8:30 and 9:30. Other places also usually only had one item for breakfast. Here there was a choice of one hot entree and always fruit, granola, hard boiled eggs and fantastic breads (usually 3) also available. We also appreciated that beverages and snacks, including coffee, tea, cookies, etc. were available at all times. I've stayed at more expensive places that charged for soda. The evening wine and appetizers were not only enjoyable, but the staff faciliated the guests to sit around and socialize. One night there even was a special wine tasting program was offered- nothing was extra, except if you wanted to purchase from a basket in your room with wine, nuts, candy - we sure didn't need that with all that was offered.

Being our first time in Napa Valley, it was nice to walk right into downtown Napa. The 1801 First Staff helped with reservations and never seemed to mind with last minute changes. The free tasting cards to a choice of wineries was also appreciated.

Our shower was just ok, but with a great bath and beautiful bathroom, we really didn't mind. If privacy is a priority, make sure you specify that when you choose a room as some of the rooms are right off the lobby and have "thin" walls. Otherwise, you couldn't pick a nicer place in this area. I hope we're lucky enough to return one day.

We recently stayed at 1801 First in Napa Valley. The house itself is beautiful and the rooms are nice and clean. We arrived very late our first evening and the staff went above and beyond to ensure we were able to get to our room with no problem and that our breakfast would be waiting for us the next day.
The concierges made any reservations that were needed to various wineries as well as dinner both evenings of our stay. They serve wine and hors'douvers nightly so you can meet your fellow neighbors if you so choose. Every attention to detail was made. We will defintely come back to 1801 First. It is a great place to stay whether you would like your privacy or whether you enjoy meeting other people.
