Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 1, 2013

I stayed here recently for two nights as part of a conference. Check in staff were great, and I was offered glass of wine as I checked in (it's the same wine that is complimentary in the room - go ahead & drink it - no mystery mini bar charges if you do!). Room was very nice, although it looked out over a parking lot and the "stunt grapes" growing on the hill behind the resort, with a comfortable bed & great bathroom. Overall, the hotel is beautiful, well maintained and perfect for the type of meeting I was attending.

The only off note? The location. The Meritage is located in an office/light industrial park with all the charm of a, well, office park. Going for an early morning run was was like running through a - you guessed it - office park.

Downtown Napa is ~10 minutes away via car or the complimentary shuttle. If you're interested in the fantastic restaurants of Yountville & wineries in St. Helena, plan to rent a car.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room, and/or spring for one that faces the pool or a courtyard

Had a wonderful time at this property! My husband and I were travelling to Napa for the first time for a wedding and had our two small children with us (7) & (3). The Meritage staff was very welcoming, particularly our bellman. They do a great job of making families feel comfortable but also keep some areas adult only for those couples wanting some adult time. For example there is one adult only pool area and another that is family friendly - this one has a little splash pad area and "baby pool" as well as a regular size pool and hot tub. At the family pool they also have an area where people could grill out if they wanted....saw families making smores at the fire pit! They also have bowling lanes open to families until 7pm then it becomes an adults only club/lounge. Beautiful rooms and our housekeeping lady was very sweet and helpful.

Overall, this was a very pleasant hotel with friendly staff, great service and interesting on-site activities. Located at the south end Napa with easy access to both 29 and Silverado Trail, the resort sits next to a business park just off 12/29 but seems more isolated than you would think looking at a map.

Check-in was quick and friendly, our bags were delivered promptly, and the valet was efficient. The shuttle to "downtown" Napa was very convenient, dropping us close to multiple dining options.

On-site, we enjoyed the food, drinks and atmosphere of Crush. While we didn't get a chance to try the bowling (I had a broken finger), we did get to hear people doing so. My one knock on our stay was our balcony room was on the 2nd floor above Crush - while not excessively loud, you could definitely hear the noise from the bowling lanes.

We also enjoyed a couple of treatments at Spa Terra. Very relaxing, the cave setting under the vineyard is a nice touch. With our appointments being at the end of the day, we were given the option of coming back the next day to use the whirlpool and steam rooms, and our cheese/fruit tray was delivered to our room.

The weather was a little cool and windy, so we didn't use the pool or enjoy the outdoor seating areas, but both of these seemed quite nice.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and definitely would recommend it. It is a bit of a drive from Meritage to the main winery areas and we typically had a bit of traffic driving back to the resort in the afternoon and had to factor that into planning spa and dinner times.

Room Tip: Make sure you are not on the 2nd floor of building 2 above Crush.

This is the greatest resort located in an industrial park I've ever visited. (No I'm not lying.) I thought Google maps went haywire, but I arrived and enjoyed this place very much. The winery on the property offered a nice entrance to wine country (and surprised me as to the fine quality of wine they produced). The staff was extremely attentive and hospitable. The only criticism I have is I constantly felt pressured by the concierge to join up with their time share program for every little inquiry I made with them. Pushy would be an understatement. But the pool, the restaurant, the club and the spa all made for a restful, romantic and wonderful stay in Northern California.

We really enjoyed our two night stay at the Meritage in Napa, it is really well situated and the complex has good facilities including its own wine tasting cellar . We didn't have any problems with our room, it over looked the pool and spa area, was clean and well decorated. Far more up market that the Westin we had stayed in, in San Francisco!
Food was ok, nothing special, but not bad either - typical American hotel. I went with some girl friends but think it would be a nice break for a couple, although worked well for the girly bonding too

We stayed for for a few nights and we would definitely stay again. It was a great home base for wine country. The wireless Internet signal was very weak in the room I must say but that was fine as you are in the room enough to care. Our room was nice but the view was spectacular. We were directly over the pool looking onto the hotels own vineyard. Breathtaking yes but if you like your room dark at night this isn't the room you want. The way the weather is there you want to keep your balcony doors open for the cool night air but that meant letting in all the courtyard lights as well. Do your own homework as the concierge was not all the helpful. He actually sent us to a winery for a tasting and when we got there the sign said by appointment only. I wasn't the upset as the ride to get there was incredible. All in all very enjoyable and we would stay again.

Rooms are large and complete. We have a full kitchen, dining area, patio, fireplace, washer and dryer, and an in room tub. The bed and sheets are quite nice. The only drawback is that the sound from the neighbors carries through on occasion, but it's not a significant detraction. I would return in the future.
