Hyatt Avia Napa (now renamed as Andaz Napa)
I heard about this hotel from a friend of mine who stayed there and raved about it. The price was quite reasonable for the Napa area, and I LOVED the modern style of the hotel. This hotel had just recently been acquired by Hyatt, previously the name was just “Avia Napa”, then it changed to “Hyatt Avia Napa”, and now it’s changed again to “Andaz Napa”. The hotel still retained a lot of its “boutique” feel which we liked.
The hotel is located in downtown Napa. We have been to Napa a number of times, but surprisingly haven’t been to this area of town. The hotel is on a quiet street area, across shops and restaurants. It was nice to be able to walk around and check out downtown Napa from our hotel.
One thing to note, we thought that the parking was valet only ($15/night). We had a lot of luggage for our stay :p so decided to valet. On the second day did we realize that we could have actually self parked at the parking garage in the back for free.
We splurged and booked the Master Tub Suite. The Master Tub Suite had a separate living room area, as well as a HUGE tub. The room was quite spacious, and there were actually 2 flat screen TVs (one in the living room and another one in the bedroom).
The bedroom area was beautiful! There was a HUGE tub to the side of the room, which was very unique and so lovely! The tub was GIGANTIC! If we ever build our own house, I would want a tub like that!
The bathroom area was also really spacious, with a separate shower area and dual his/her sinks.
There wasn’t a swimming pool in this hotel, which I thought was a little surprising. But we didn’t mind since we only stayed for one night. Their evening turndown service was a nice touch, which included 2 free bottled waters and mini chocolates.
The hotel also provided free drinks/appetizers in the lobby area from 5:30-7:00 PM nightly as well as free chair massages. How awesome is that? Unfortunately, we were not able to participate since we had early dinner reservations at 5:30 PM.
Overall we LOVED this hotel and would definitely consider staying here again in the future.
