If you’re contemplating a trip to Napa, then you’ve likely already come up with a list of all the wineries and restaurants you want to hit while enjoying your Northern California sojourn, but what about your accommodations? There’s no shortage of luxury hotels in wine country, from adorable boutique options to palatial resorts, and everything in between. And don’t forget that wine country is more than just Napa; there are plenty of towns throughout the region, including Calistoga, Yountville and St. Helena—there’s a hotel for every type of luxury-loving traveler.

Napa is just 50 miles north of San Francisco, but feels like it’s a world away—and no, that’s not just because of the horrendous traffic that’s often a part of the travel experience. Once you arrive in Napa, though, with its vine-covered hills and relaxed lifestyle, you’ll know it’s worth it…especially after you’ve gotten to your first wine tasting. Below, see the best luxury hotels to book for your next trip to wine country.

  • Meadowood.

    Meadowood is a beloved Napa icon; it’s a special spot in St. Helena, mere minutes from the Napa River, that manages to stand out among the plethora of luxury wine country hotels. Parts of the 250-acre property were destroyed in the devastating Glass Fire in 2020, including the three Michelin-starred Restaurant at Meadowood, but the gorgeous estate opened as a 36-room boutique hotel spot in 2021. The airy accommodations are cozy, comfortable and spacious, with wood beamed ceilings, stone fireplaces and marble bathrooms, as well as complimentary Wifi throughout the resort. While the Restaurant at Meadowood hasn’t reopened, the property did recently debut a new, more casual on-site restaurant, Forum. It’s all in line with Meadowood’s impeccable service and luxurious yet understated guest rooms and amenities, including multiple outdoor pools, a relaxing spa and tennis courts.
