For style warriors looking for space to breathe and taste the wine, Andaz Napa has cool country charm, a popular music scene and a prime spot on 1st Street, ‘Downtown’ Napa.

Andaz Napa is effortless, unpretentious and full of jolly good flavour. They’ve done away with a lobby in favour of digital check ins which gives this place a trendy ‘make yourself at home’ feel from the get-go. Local design pieces, natural materials and country bumpkin touches of the hip variety make this a cool and sociable spot to stay. The outdoor terrace is all about noshing on farm-to-table treats, savouring wine, swinging on chairs and lingering by fire pits. Snag a cabana for intimate party feels and watch things heat up on Wednesdays and Saturdays when live acoustic music sessions attract a natty crowd. Bedrooms range from sleek little botlholes with floor-to-ceiling windows to loft-style rooms with terraces and luxury suites with freestanding soaking tubs, glass fireplaces and balconies. But we know you’re not coming to Napa to stay indoors. The Andaz is surrounded by the best of Downtown Napa’s endless, and most excellent, food and drink scene, and your minutes from the nearest wineries.
