Trip Report: Napa-St. Helena

I've visited Napa previously for touring and wine tasting though never had the opportunity to stay overnight until this trip.  I highly recommend it for anyone visiting the area and scheduling tastings!  

My first choice of stay would be Hyatt (as usual) and thankfully due to recent partnerships there were two options, one in Napa and the other in St. Helena.  I've never stayed at an Alila property, so we chose the Alila Napa Valley.  Points redemptions can be scarce at these locations, and I was shocked to find two rooms available!  My Hyatt concierge helped with the booking - there were no upgrades possible at booking though I checked back the week before departure and two rooms were available.  I couldn't believe it - two Jr. Suites!  These rooms were going for $4000 a night each and we were very fortunate to get them.  This is also an adult-only property that Hyatt also recently changed to Category 8, so future redemption options will require more points. 

Alila Napa Valley

Located just north of the downtown, the Alila is a short walk away from shops and other restaurants.  Most vineyards are an easy drive to access - we chose two for this trip:

We had several choices for dinner and ultimately chose to eat on the property as well as visit Charter Oak:

We were very impressed by the menus and overall atmosphere at both establishments - can't wait to return!

Other perks of Hyatt membership also apply at this property - as a Globalist, breakfasts were included at the restaurant and room refresh/water occurred each day.  Internet was complimentary.  And of course the chance for suite upgrades may apply based on availability.
