“All was great except our shower backed up.”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Nice location. Lovely lobby with nice small bar. Very helpful staff and cozy fireplace in the back.
Our room was up to date and the bed was comfortable!.

The shower was large but the water backed up and almost overflowed. We were in too much of a hurry to complain since we were only there one night. If they read this review they will know to look at room 226 .!!
Our room rate was $122...which was a steal....even in December.

Room Tip: Always asked to see a map of the room locations.

Who doesn't like staying in the Valley of wine, women and song?? Great wines, great vistas, great food, lovely spas, etc..., etc. etc.....

We live about an hour away but try to come to the wine country at least every few months. But......the city of Napa is not IN the valley (still a good car distance south from the wineries) and we have rarely visited downtown. And, we have never stayed this far south. But the city of Napa is changing. New development have introduced quaint walking streets, riverfront walkways, art galleries, tasting rooms and tons of interesting restaurants.

The Andaz is in a great location, the center of it all. Everything is walkable. The lobby was under construction when we arrived so the transition from the Avia was still in process. Although we never stayed there, our impression of the Avia was very slick, modern and trendy. The Andaz is going for a more rustic, barn, vineyard feel. The success of the merging of the two opposite styles remains to be seen.

The rooms are large and you can see that much of the furniture and decor from the Avia still dominates. I don't know the plans for upgrading. Not that what's there is bad, but some items showed wear in what is supposed to be a new themed hotel.

The bed and sheets were very comfortable. The towels could be upgraded but we loved the rain shower! The free minibar items was an appreciated touch.

We spent the end of the evening around the fire pit. It was a great feature and added to the specialty of our stay. I could see, however, how it may be intrusive to the rooms that faced in that direction. In fact, the windows in the rooms had sheer curtains that allow natural light in but also do not block the visibility into the room. And.... due to the city center location and the proximity of the hotel to other buildings, there are lots of opportunities to be viewed from outside the hotel. The only way to ensure complete privacy is to close the black out shades which means researching the maze of light switches. Personally, I prefer natural light and would love to have sheers that block the view INTO the room.

Breakfast in the restaurant was just so-so. It could use some help but the wine bar was great.The entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

We definitely had a fun night and would consider staying here again.

Hotel rooms are modern and updated. When an entire bathroom is clean and made of carrera marble, you feel like you are at a 24hr spa. Beautiful renovations. It reminds me of a picture out of a Restoration Hardware magazine. Check ins are done as you walk in on an iPad and Internet is free in your room.

They offer free soft drinks in your mini bar and organic type snacks which is nice. There's free parking in the parking garage right behind the hotel only a 2 minute walk. Starbucks is within walking distance and the downtown area is quiet and quaint.

Vineyards are all 10-30 minute drive away. Very convenient location.

I'd pick to stay here for $250 on average instead of $400 at the 'boutuque' hotels and spend
$150 on a nice meal and bottle of wine a night :0)

P.S. if you've never been to Napa before, do not leave this area until you visit Dean and Deluca. Gourmet meat, cheese, and bread to die for. What else can you ask for in the midst of wine country?

See you soon!

Stayed here with my wife for two night during our honeymoon. We had booked one of the Tower Suites. The room was very nice, everything was clean. The room consists of two rooms, one living room with a couch/table and a work-desk, and one bedroom, with a tub. There was also a shower in the bathroom.

As in all Andaz hotels, the minibar was free (except alcohol). Breakfast was served in the restaurant at ground level. Since this Hyatt hotel does not have a club, breakfast is free for GP Diamond Members.

The staff at the hotel was very friendly, and the concierge helped us with both restaurants and attractions in Napa.

We stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend, and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was on the top floor facing First, with a comfortable sitting area, gas fireplace, and spacious bathroom. Our room service breakfasts were delivered quickly, and all of the staff were super friendly. One thing we would suggest changing -- we wanted to go to the bar for a drink, but it was mobbed by patrons of the free wine tasting. It would be nice if the bar seating was reserved for paying guests who want cocktails and who are not interested in participating in the free wine tasting.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 5th floor facing First seem quieter and more spacious.

Was checked in by Omar who was very friendly and gave good advice on dining and wineries. Room was a deluxe room with a fireplace. Tub was in the bedroom just outside the bathroom. Bathroom was very nice with a large shower area. Breakfast was fair and service was good. Self parking in the garage behind hotel.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. The suite we booked was huge, with tasteful decor, a huge bathroom, an in room soaking tub and fireplace, all equipping us to relax in style. The minibar offerings were free (except alcohol, understandably), the restaurant's food was amazing, and the hotel's service delivered with a smile. The location was central, right near the many restaurants and shops and not too far from the Oxbow Market. There were a few minor drawbacks... The restaurant service was a little slow, the gym and parking are next door or a block away rather than in the building. These didn't preclude an enjoyable stay, however, and we had a terrific time.
