Critic Reviews

  • Frommer's Very Highly Recommended



Though Napa River Inn exudes history — right down to bricks formed from Napa River clay and, in the Captain Hatt Suite, floor planks crafted from the building’s 1880s skating rink — it delivers some particularly plush modern amenities.


Located within the Historic Napa Mill, in the heart of downtown, the Napa River Inn is one of the most convenient properties for those who want to be within walking distance to great shopping, excellent dining and entertainment, and wine tasting rooms.



Part of a complex of restaurants, shops, a nightclub, and a spa, this waterfront inn is within easy walking distance of downtown hot spots. Guest rooms are housed in three structures. Those in the 1884 Hatt Building, done up in Victorian style, are arguably the most romantic, with deep-red walls, maple floors and other original architectural details, and old-fashioned slipper tubs.
