In Napa itself I stayed at the River Terrace Inn, a lovely property just on the edge of town, affording convenient access to the Silverado Trail as well as pedestrian access to town. I really appreciated the convenience of walking into town each night for dinner, and then coming back to a welcoming room afterwards. I loved the bed at the River Terrace Inn, not only was it super comfortable, but the linens were silky and inviting. In fact all the details here, like the bathrobes and towels, were of a fine quality, particularly in light of the price.
Now admittedly I was there in the off-season, and midweek to boot, so I was able to take advantage of a “stay for two, get the the third night free offer,” which brought my nightly rate down to under $130 a night. At that rate this place is a steal, but I would still heartily recommend the River Terrace Inn at standard room rates. One thing worth noting is that breakfast is served on the premises, but the restaurant is detached from the hotel so you have to take a short stroll if you want a hot breakfast. On the other hand, a continental breakfast was on offer in the lobby of the hotel each morning for those so inclined.
