As the year is coming to a close, I realized it was time for a quick trip to Napa Valley. So with our contributor Natasha, we packed our bags and made the journey.

Searching for a place to stay is always the challenge. Searching for a place in Napa – an even greater challenge. Look no further as this lovely hotel is the perfect retreat when heading to wine country. Conveniently located right off Highway 29, Senza Hotel welcomes you to the Napa Valley in a modern yet cozy way.

Upon entering the suite we were instantly drawn to the vibrant fireplace that seemed to call our names, inviting us in from the outside chill. Large sliding glass doors bedside, allowed you to experience the spectacular views of Napa Valley while keeping a look out for the occasional hot air balloon in the early morning. A large soaking tub, walk in shower, and heated floors created an equally inviting and relaxing bathroom making it almost impossible to leave the room altogether. I think this was the first time, I really had no greater desire to leave, the room was that incredible.

With a heated pool, quaint spa, exercise room, and complimentary wine hour – the amenities are nothing short of amazing. Different wineries from around the valley come to Senza to offer complimentary tastings complete with hors d’oeuvres, taking the Napa Valley experience just one step further. However it does not end there. Breakfast is to be enjoyed with pastries from Bouchon Bakery, without ever having to leave the property — I may have had an extra croissant or two each day!

We ventured out one day to stop by a few lovely wineries nearby like Robert Biale Vineyards and Hall Vineyards, two places not to miss for wine tasting. At Robert Biale Vineyards, we were greeted with the friendliest welcome, and adored the opportunity to try their smooth Zinfandels and take a peak at the barrel room — we felt like we were with family here. At Hall Winery, we wandered the grounds with a wine glass in hand, learning about the process behind the wine, all the way gazing at the art collection. These two wine tastings were each unique, and made for a good blend of experiences.

About an hour and half from both Sacramento and San Francisco, this boutique hotel offers an ideal location without sacrificing luxury. Senza Hotel utilizes each space to create the relaxing environment to call home during your stay in the Napa Valley.

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!

These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.

1. Book Your Flights

Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.

2. Book Your Accommodations

Use for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.

3. Book Your Tours & Experiences

Use Viator or Get Your Guide to find the best tours and experiences. They are my favorite tour search engines. I always check both as their inventory varies depending on the destination.

4. Book Your Car

Use Discover Cars or to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.

5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access

Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.

6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance

I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.

My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
