The hotel

Set along the banks of the Napa River and surrounded by lush landscapes, this enchanting hotel is perfectly located to sample the delights of the Napa and Sonoma valleys. There are over 250 local wineries and other attractions nearby, just waiting to be discovered. Use one of the complimentary cruiser bikes and head to the bike path at the back of the hotel, maybe heading into downtown Napa for a browse. At the end of the day, dinner at ALBA is sure to delight — relax by a firepit on the moonlit terrace by the river and dine on seasonal local cuisine, accompanied by fantastic Napa Valley wines, naturally.

Comfortable, welcoming hotel with good facilities and friendly staff. Faultless stay. Nothing negative to convey. The hotel is very well situated to allow easy walking access if you customers did not want particularly to use a car.

more of 3 star hotel that costs high $300. close to $400 after additional fees. if it was 3 star hotel and costs around high $200, it would make more sense. only good thing is you don't pay for parking. it is close to downtown NAPA but it's not walking distance either so I am not too sure i am paying for the location either.

First time in Napa and loved the River Terrace Inn. Location, accomodations and staff were fantastic. Walking distance to Oxbow Market and downtown Napa. Loved walking to Model Bakery every morning for coffee and english muffins. Sitting outside along the river was a great way to end a day of tastings.

We arrived without a reservation when a local B&B "lost" ours. The staff was great and quickly found us a few options for rooms. They even gate us a tour of each room. We picked the fantastic river view deluxe room and loved it. Thank you for such a great experience!
