“Best Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Napa River Inn is amazing! Our check-in experience was smooth; front desk staff was knowledgable about the town and sights for us to see. Extremely accomodating in all ways. Breakfast delivery to the room was wonderful! Beautifully landscaped, awesome courtyard to relax in. Everything was clean and well taken care of! If I ever get the chance to visit Napa again, Napa River Inn is where I'll be staying!

Had the opportunity to visit Napa, a beautiful small town set in the Napa Valley's beautiful wine country. I was very fortunate to be able to stay at the Napa River Inn. This hotel is really beautiful. The outside is in an old agricultural center that has been converted into a group of chic businesses and restuarants. I loved the room and which overlooked the Napa River and a beautiful courtyard. The entire town is like something from a magazine and this hotel is right in the middle of everything. If youre heading to Napa, book this hotel for a great stay.

Room Tip: I think they are all great and I hear some are even haunted!!

Tammi Mazziliano was the "go-to-gal" for coordinating a fairly extensive list of itinerary items for a group stay. Restaurant reservations, winery tours transportation and various guest requests were handled in a personable and professional manner. She did some productive negotiations with Beau Wine Tours that resulted in great transportation for the entire visit. We "shopped" several properties before selecting "NRI" for our reunion. Prices in Napa were fairly comparable, but the ambiance of the "NRI" rooms and surroundings made the choice an easy one. Each and every staff member, over a five-day visit, repeatedly showed our group great hospitality and extra effort to attend to any request. From this experience, I'd say if someone can't be happy here, they're unlikely to be pleased anywhere else either. This is the perfect base of operations to spend time exploring wine country. Thanks "NRI" for making a 45-year reunion a most fulfilling one.

Room Tip: Check out the rooms in the Embarcadero building... quiet and really comfortable.

Laurie Gordon, the chef concierge and member of les clefs d'or, made our stay at the NRI a dream come true. We have never had such attentive assistance in booking a holiday. She made us feel like VIPs but at the same time like friends. The hotel was spotless, beds were the best we've seen, and the NRI is part of a complex that includes a fresh pastries shop, a homemade candy shop, a jazz wine bar, a general store (including a restaurant) and a wonderful French restaurant...the NRI is in downtown Napa, so walking to wine bars for tastings is very convenient (and Laurie helped out with free vouchers. The setting on the river is beautiful.

This is great choice for people who want to enjoy the old town of Napa itself. Convenient, but just off the main highway drag, the Inn gives travelers a nice option for something that still feels quiet and secluded while still being right in town. Since it is against a riverbend, you don't lose the quaintness and beauty of the area. The riverwalk, though short, is a great way to start and end a morning run, and many great shops and restaurants are in walking distance for during the day (Morimotos is right next door!). The on-site bakery and sandwich shop is an evil temptress. The layout of the hotel includes a couple different buildings; I have stayed a few different times and prefer the Embarcadero building. The hotel and room décor is traditional and nothing special, but everything is comfortable and clean.

Room Tip: Ask for the Embarcadero Building.

Napa River Inn is completely worth the price. It is located right downtown and is within walking distance to so many great restaurants and shops. The staff was very friendly and helpful every time. I would highly recommend this hotel when planning out a wine weekend getaway.

Room Tip: Book in advance.

This is one of our favorite places to stay in downtown Napa! The room was gorgeous, the people were very friendly. Breakfast was delicious and served right on time. I felt like I wanted to spend time just enjoying the room and the grounds - you don't want to leave and look forward to coming back to this hotel! The superior room made our anniversary that much more special! The fireplace and bed made me so cozy!

Room Tip: We have stayed here twice. Once in a standard room & this last time in a superior room. While...
