“Nice Napa Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Stayed at Meritage as part of a vacation package purchased at an auction. We were generally happy with our stay including the room (2nd floor balcony view of pool and vineyear). The room was comfortable but somewhat small considering the pricepoint.

High Points:
The spa was outstanding with a terrific ambience and incredible massages (both my wife and I commented that they were some of the best we've ever had).
Front desk service was attentive and responsive.
View from room was terrific.

Low Points:
Property is situated in a commercial office park but does a reasonably good job of "separating' itself. South of Napa so it's a bit more of a drive to wine country.
On property restaurant (Siena) was dissappointing. Notably they were understaffed and very slow. Food quality was mediocre but not inconsistent with hotel quality.
The hotel is definitely oriented to conferences with several occurring during our stay. If you are looking for a romantic getaway, this may not be the place.

Room Tip: Request a 2nd floor room with view of pool and vineyard. Get a balcony if possible.

If you are traveling to NAPA VALLEY, this is the place to stay. Rooms are beautiful. Spa is great.
Restaurant is very good

Central location to all of the wineries in Napa. Nice pool area with lounges.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of courtyard

We came here with an open mind. It's just the little things that add up to make the experience less than spectacular. It mostly starts with the concierge. Here's a typical conversation: "can you recommend something in Napa to do with kids?" Answer: "No, there really isn't much, but if you have time tomorrow, our sister hotel has a 90 minute presentation on new timeshare offers..." Seriously? Your concierge is pitching timeshares? After that, we started paying more attention to little things: paint pealing off the bath walls, no place to put used towels (though the hotel encourages us to reuse them), $20 daily resort fee (for what?), hotel located in a corporate park, etc. etc. But in all fairness, if the hotel had employed more experienced personnel as concierge, we would have been more likely to overlook the rest. Nothing is cosmetically wrong with the restaurant or the grounds.

Came to the resort for a business trip and arrived late. The temperature dropped and the wind picked up upon checkin. I called room service to order a warm meal and mentioned to the attendant that I was cold. When my food arrived the room service waiter said in addition to my food he brought me a warm blanket! I was so impressed. The tomato soup was excellent too. I had a delicious dinner in the restaurant but didn't have time to enjoy the resort. The spa, pool and winery are onsite for a perfect getaway of both work and some fun.

One of the best places I've ever known. The location is wonderful, in the middle of the vineyards, and the facilities are exquisite and refined. A perfect attendance, courteous, polite, and at the same time with warmth. A perfect place to sample fine wines and enjoy the tranquility of a winery.

Room Tip: All rooms at Meritage are very good

We just returned from our honeymoon in Napa and spent two nights at the Meritage Resort. We were impressed from the moment we arrived. This the type of place you don't even have to leave once you get there. Between the pool, restaurant, lounge, spa, etc. we just wanted to spend all of our time there! We were given a beautiful room overlooking the vineyards which was so lovely to wake up to each morning. The highlight of our trip had to be Friday when we went to the cocktail reception and met the GM of the property, Michael Palmer. He was very friendly and upon learning that it was our honeymoon he made us a reservation at Sienna and bought us a bottle of wine of our choice. That generosity was such a great touch to our weekend at the Meritage. We will definitely come back here again one day!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new building, facing the vineyards

Hotel front desk check in was amazing. The hotel room and grounds were very nice! Siena was a great place for dinner, and Crush was a blast with bowling!
Just wish price was lower. Otherwise oustanding resort!
