“Beautiful Resort in Napa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

It's a great hotel for those visiting the wine country, it truly feels like you are in wine country resort. The hotel is beautifully decorated with many amenities. Pool area is relaxing and rooms are spacious. I love the vineyard in the back. We took the self guided tour around the vineyard one morning. Service was amazing, especially Joe at the front desk. We had a problem with the check-in date but he fixed the problem for us. He was really courteous and offered us water while we were waiting. He went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. They also offer a free shuttle service to downtown Napa. It was a great experience!

The internet connection in the room did not work and the staff told me they could fix it. They said work in the lobby and that was barely above poor. I lost a lot of time to work in the room with no connection. They staff did send someone to the room, but they did not address the problem. I had the same problem last ime I stayed in April, they told me they were working on it and it would be fixed. That did not happen, actions speak louder than words!!!

This hotel is average at best. My first morning there I awoke to someone power washing right outside out bedroom window at 8:30 am!! it lasted for several hours and after calling the front desk to complain they still kept going. Our room must have been connected to a smoker's room because it stunk of cigarettes. Construction was going on next door too. The location is really not idea either. It's 20 min for Napa valley and all the good restaurants...It's sort of off of the highway. Feel bad giving anyone a bad review but this place really earned it. If we had to do it over again we would definitely NOT stay at the Meritage Resort!

Room Tip: Not on the ground floor near the pool..no privacy!

Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay at The Meritage Resort and Spa. I am disappointed to hear that your stay was average at best and would like to speak with you regarding your experience. It's obvious our best judgment wasn't used when up keeping our amenities, and 8:30AM is definitely too early to be power washing. On top of that, the response from our front desk disappoints me as taking ownership is one of our service standards. We are a 100% non-smoking property and no guest is ever allowed to smoke in a guest room. I will find out why that room got released, and make sure it doesn't happen again. Please give me a call when you get the opportunity so I can do my best to rectify the situation.

This was our first trip to Napa. Just my husband and I. We stayed 4 nights. We ate in the restaraunt for breakfast and had two dinners. The food was good. The rooms are clean and nice. There is only wifi in the lobby but there is internet in the room and cables to connect in the desk. The pool area and hot tub were nice. Cute little lime trees around the pool. Didn't use the spa but did pop in to check out the wine cave. The guys there are nice and if you buy a bottle or bring the free bottle from your room to the restraunt there is no corkage fee. The staff is very friendly and service oriented. Room was ready on arrival. Concierge was very helpful with directions and booking us a reservation at the Chop House restaraunt. That place is FABULOUS!! Had drinks in the lobby bar while waiting for the shuttle to take us downtown. Great service. The shuttle runs from 5-10pm every night and it is free. It is a few minutes from downtown but a very convenient location if you are driving to visit wineries. It is a resort hotel, it is not a cute bed and breakfast. So if you are after cute and nostalgic this place located near a business park may be a disappointment
We had a wonderful stay here and can't say enough about the great staff here. Oh, little tip: There is free coffee in the lobby area and $7.00 coffee in the restaraunt It is the same great coffee. .

Room Tip: The coffee in the restaraunt is $7.00 but down the hall in the lobby the same great coffee is free...

The Meritage Resort is perfect for those looking for a true resort versus a B&B or economy hotel in Napa. The resort is pristine, the rooms are comfortable, and the bed and pillows were like sleeping on a cloud! Our room overlooked the vineyard, the pool area was so relaxing and we had two meals - breakfast and lunch, both were delicious. We plan to visit again so we can try the spa and have dinner at the restaurant!

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the elevator as there are many hallways/corridors...

My husband and I had a great stay in Napa. We had never been to wine country before and we loved it. We had a room that looked out to the winery and the weather was great while we were there so we could hangout side on our balcony. We love that a shuttle takes you into downtown each night so you can have dinner in downtown napa without driving and the shuttle driver was so nice. Everyone was friendly. We would recommend the hotel. We swam and played bocci ball while there in between our many wine tastings.

A belated honeymoon (almost 10 years later) was the reason for our first trip to Napa and stay at the Meritage. Overall, the resort is top notch and the staff is very friendly. The rooms are very nice and views were great. Quite hotel atmosphere that is great for those not with traveling children. Daily coffee and tea service in the lobby and someone always around to get you what you need.
We ate in the restaurant and well as spent time in the bar. Raphael was our waiter in Sienna our first night and was wonderful. He made it 100% special and was totally on the ball with everything. Food was outstanding for both breakfast and dinner (ate both twice in the restaurant, didn’t have lunch). Bartenders were friendly and fun, they even told a few jokes.
Spa Terra was amazing. Had the couple’s massage which was 100% better than my last massage here at home and hung out in the relaxation room. Even though there was a wedding going on, you would have never known as the staff didn’t miss a beat.
Only complaint I had was when we arrived an hour earlier than check in the room wasn’t ready so we hung out in the bar. By 5:30 I was a bit upset that they still had no room ready, but we were in by 6:00. The supervisor at the front desk compensated for the issue by buying us breakfast the next day in the hotel restaurant.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the vineyards or pool.
