Solage Calistoga

Nestled among groves of oak trees, Solage Calistoga is a forested gem. Featuring large windows paired with sophisticated furnishings, the hotel’s rooms are spacious, modern, and private. The landmark swimming pool at Solage Calistoga is massive, spanning 130 feet, but there are several other pools and hot tubs on the property, as well as cabanas. The spa features a bathhouse with co-ed geothermal pools that improve circulation and promote peace of mind. As if that wasn’t enough, Solage Calistoga’s Michelin-rated restaurant, Solbar, serves up Napa Valley-centric cuisine with straight-from-the-farm ingredients.

Dr. Wilkinson's Hot Springs Resort

Operated by the same family since its opening in 1952, Dr. Wilkinson’s Hot Springs Resort has welcomed guests with the same iconic neon sign for six decades. Accommodations, however, are very modern and comfortable. For a group, guests can even reserve an entire Victorian house that was recently restored. Over a million clients have experienced the spa, which boasts three pools brimming with natural mineral water. Many guests enjoy the indoor mineral pool as well, which is kept at a balmy 103 degrees Fahrenheit.

Insider Tip

The free wireless internet can be hard to connect to in every room due to the hotel’s age and concrete construction. If Wi-Fi is a must for your stay, mention it when making your booking to ensure you receive a room where the connections are best.
