Calistoga, CA 94515
(707) 266-7534
TripAdvisor: 4.5 stars, 800 reviews

The rooms at Solage offer vaulted ceilings and semi-private outdoor patios, but the true attractions here come in the form of a luxurious spa experience, which includes a bathhouse and rejuvenating mud bar—not to be confused with the Michelin-rated onsite restaurant Solbar, which offers creative dishes and an extensive wine selection for every meal.

Indian Springs
1712 Lincoln Ave
Calistoga, CA 94515
(707) 942-4913
TripAdvisor: 4.5 stars, 1313 reviews

Varied stylish cottages and Spanish bungalows make each stay at Indian Springs unique, but the common ground comes from their fabulous onsite pools, fed by restorative thermal waters and kept open until midnight so guests can soak and stargaze at the same time. The spa treatments and packages only enhance the relaxation, and onsite restaurant Sam’s Social Club offers guests the fresh California cuisine they expect from one of Napa Valley’s most popular eateries.

Insider tip: Save some time after hitting the wineries to enjoy some recreational opportunities around the property, including croquet, bocce ball, shuffleboard, and giant checkers.

Hotel d’Amici
1436 Lincoln Ave
Calistoga, CA 94515
(707) 942-1007
TripAdvisor: 4 stars, 33 reviews

As lovably old-world as the adjoining D’Amici Italian restaurant, the unique rooms at this hotel include a few constants, like vintage Italian posters and cozy wood stoves. The atmosphere is clean and comfortable with the convenience of downtown Calistoga waiting just outside each window. Take time to enjoy the two-person jacuzzi tub in the bathroom—preferably after a day’s wine tasting excursion.

Insider tip: Guests can expect a breakfast basket outside their door each morning, featuring pastries made fresh at the bakery just next door.

Calistoga isn’t as large as many of its Napa Valley neighbors, but it makes up for its small size with the quality and quantity of its hotels and bed and breakfasts, which provide guests with a distinct blend and atmosphere and amenities.
