We generally steer clear of the mid-range chain hotels, not because they don't provide adequate accommodations, but because most are somewhat sterile cookie cutters that offer little to the imagination.
Not so, the Andaz brand from Hyatt, charming boutique hotels that offer stylish accommodations, solid dining options and very good values. They also work hard to become a part of the community and are generally embraced by the locals.
The Andaz Napa is located in the heart of downtown Napa, accessible on foot to everything in town and by car for the surrounding areas. The 141 rooms are elegantly decorated with contemporary furnishings, plush beds with crisp cotton linens, hardwood floors, designer area rugs, marble bath, and waterfall shower heads. Rooms feature ergonomic work space, a Keurig coffeemaker, free Wi-Fi and a minibar with welcome snacks and beverages on the house.
Room options range from standard rooms at 310 sq feet to the Tower Suite with floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views of downtown Napa, dual sided fireplace and retractable glass walls that open to your private balcony. The suite is just shy of 1000 sq feet.
Mercantile Social is the hotel's cocktail lounge featuring hann crafted cocktails, boutique local wines and casual foods from salads and smoothies to pizza pops and grass fed beef burgers to shrimp baked mac n' cheese.
Andaz Farm Table starts the day with delicious breakfasts including organic fruit and yogurt parfaits to the completely indulgent stuffed baguette French toast to cage-free egg preparations served with traditional accompaniments.
The Andaz Artists program centers around live music and local musical talent. Andaz Artists (mainly acoustic guitarists) all hail from the Bay Area to come play in either Mercantile Social or the Lobby Lounge every Wednesday and Saturday from 8-11pm. The artists play a collection of covers and some of their own music, and all are a great reflection of the spirit and inspiration of Andaz.
