Modern Guide to Downtown Napa: The Small Town Is Having a Stylish Renaissance


Downtown Napa is in the middle of a Wine Country renaissance, with new restaurants, shops, bars, hotels, and tasting rooms (of course) popping up on every corner. The additions mean there's plenty to do for teetotalers, or for those suffering from palate burnout after a long day at the wineries.

Stay: Luxurious Hotels Abound

Archer Hotel

After a yearlong delay on its grand opening, the hotly anticipated Archer Hotel in the heart of downtown is finally accepting reservations starting November 1. The five-story hotel adds 183 overnight possibilities for a Napa Valley getaway, plus a rooftop bar and a Charlie Palmer Steakhouse (from which you can order in-room). // 1230 First St. (Napa),

Andaz Napa

Crisp white sheets, modern design, tasty room service, and a well-placed soaking tub greet you as you enter your room at Andaz Napa. A laid-back atmosphere, craft cocktail bar, rooftop terrace, and gourmet in-house restaurant make Andaz Napa the perfect home base. // 1450 First St. (Napa),

The Napa Inn

Rest your head in this historic pale blue Victorian built in 1877. All 15 cozy rooms are different, but fit the Victorian theme with antique elements. Start your day with a gourmet candlelight breakfast on the garden patio and finish with a nightcap of port or sherry, paired with a selection of desserts, cheeses, fruit and other appetizers. Select nights also feature tastings from local wineries. // 1137 Warren St. (Napa),

Napa River Inn

It's hard to believe that downtown Napa's most popular hotel was originally home to the historic Napa Mill. Views of the Napa River top the long list of amenities, which also includes a glass of wine at check in, complimentary breakfast in bed from downstairs bakery Sweetie Pies, and in most rooms, a fireplace. On the very same block you'll find some of downtown's most popular riverfront restaurants, such as Morimoto and Angèle, plus Silo's Jazz Club. // 500 Main Street, Napa,
