“BEAUTIFUL HOTEL”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

My wife had a two day event in the conference center so I tagged along for the overnight stay. Know this hotel is not in the vicinity of downtown Napa, it is situated in an industrial park. The resort does offer frequent shuttle service to the downtown area. Once you get past the office park and drive up to the facility the industrial part seems to melt away. The bell staff was very welcoming, willing to aid with luggage and escorted us to the check in desk.

The rooms are very well appointed, roomy with a trendy meets old Tuscan style. The bathroom was well laid out with a water closet, duel sinks and large shower. Considering the trend is going away from the old traditional bathtub/shower combo, at least put in a teak bench. Reasons for which ladies will agree. Our room faced the vineyard, and if you ask upon checking in, it may be possible to secure a room with a balcony and vineyard view. Another nice touch is in the room a bottle of wine, two wine glasses and a wine opener. Very nice!

Another trend is hotels changing their amenities to be classified as a resort. Really? This hotel is wonderful, beautifully appointed, has a spa, a restaurant, conference center and a coffee house. However, I think it is far from a resort; It is just a way to charge a "resort fee".

One has to go explore the caves, as well as walk through to the vineyard to the statue of the crusher. I will leave that you to explore more on you own. Given the opportunity to splurge on a Napa weekend, I would return through the industrial park to a large gem nestled against the backdrop of a vineyard.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the 4000 building with a vineyard view. P.S. If you enjoy a great quality wine...

Myself and my 2 best friends planned a girl weekend for my thirtieth birthday and we couldn't have had a better time at the Meritage. We flew into San Fran and rented a car. I would recommend this that way you can get around to any or as many wineries as you please. The drive wasn't bad but traffic is pretty bad. I live in New York City and I still found the traffic to be a bit much. The resort is secluded on its own grounds but it is very easy to navigate around to both eat and visit other wineries. The staff is excellent no complaints at all with customer service. Rooms are immaculate. And the grounds are breathtaking. We visited numerous wineries at the suggestion of Justin and another concierge whose name slips my mind. Lots of 2 for 1 coupons at the resort but also from 4square. Ate all our meals downtown and have zero complaints as well regarding food. Def a trip to remember and we will be coming back very soon!

The Meritage was fantastic!! The grounds are gorgeous with wonderful views of Napa! My best friend and I checked in and were very pleasantly surprised with the gorgeous room. The complimentary bottle of wine in the room was perfect. The concierge was fantastic and very helpful. To top it off, the bell man, Travis, went out of his way to make our stay wonderful. Everyone was attentive and we felt like the only guests in the whole resort! Great experience all around and we will definitely be coming back to visit next time we are in Napa! Thank you Meritage (and especially you, Travis!)

This hotel is absolutely AH-Mazing. Super pretty, rooms are opulent, and my best friend and I got free movie rentals of Twilight! The bell boy, Jay, was above and beyond helpful. He went out of his way to make our stay perfect. He delivered us our movies we wanted and even brought us popcorn on our girls weekend. Just perfect. This guy deserves a raise!!!!

The Meritage is absolutely beautiful, service is excellent, and atmosphere is great for all occasions. The location made it very convenient for accessing wineries, restaurants, and the local attractions. We would definitely stay at this property upon future trips to Napa.

The front desk ans concierge staff was warm and courteous. The hospitality staff was friendly and outgoing. We stayed in the Vino Bello section of the resort (which is the condo-style suites). The rooms were very comfortable and clean. Housekeeping and Room Service staff were nice and helpful. There are a good number of amenitites available on property that you do not need to leave the resort. If we were to return to Napa, we would definitell stay there again. My only complaint is the pushiness from the concierge desk to have you attend a time-share selling presentation.

The Meritage is out of Napa Town, approximately 5-10 minutes away. The hotel is quiet but full of amenities. There is a full-blown fitness center and an excellent restaurant, for those too tired after a full day of wine tasting and shopping.

My wife and I were greeted with a bottle of white wine and two bottled water in the room when we checked in.

The grounds are huge but there's so much parking that you'll find one rather close to your room.

I love the place and will definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the 4000 series. It's in the "back" but very close to the restauran...
