The Ultimate Wine Country Hotel Guide for BottleRock Napa Valley
“Last year, the three-day music, food and wine extravaganza that is BottleRock Napa Valley was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Luckily, this year the festival is back and better than ever, and is scheduled for September 3 to September 5, with acts ranging from Stevie Nicks and Miley Cyrus to Megan Thee Stallion and the Foo Fighters. And let’s not forget about the incredible food and vino at the festival, with bites offered from the numerous acclaimed eateries in the region, and wine from the rambling vineyards.
While we firmly believe it’s always a good idea to plan a trip to wine country, the beginning of fall just might be one of the best times to visit Napa Valley. It’s the start of the harvest season, so you get the best wine country experience, plus the temperatures have (hopefully) cooled a bit from the summer scorchers. If you’re heading to BottleRock Napa Valley this year (or you’re just contemplating a trip to California wine country to live your best vineyard life this autumn), then you’ll want to book a luxe hotel for your stay. Below, see the top five hotels you should consider for your next trip to Napa.
This adorable hotel is located right in Sonoma, and is actually a bit closer to BottleRock than many of the Napa hotels that are further north. MacArthur Place, which dates back to 1869, recently received a $25 million renovation, before it reopened as a boutique luxury hotel two years ago. The hotel is composed of 64 farmhouse chic, cottage-style rooms, all of which are uniquely decorated. There are three dining options, including Layla, a Mediterranean-style eatery, and there’s also a spa and pool on the grounds. We love that the hotel offers electric bikes that guests can use to ride into town. From $659, MacArthur Place.” – Morgan Halberg, August 2021
