1. Stay: Andaz Napa
After a four-month renovation, @andaznapa (part of the boutique hotel group from Hyatt hotels) has reopened its doors in Downtown Napa, a location that may have been overlooked in the not-so-distant past but is undergoing a major resurgence. The hotel boasts 141 well-appointed rooms (many of which have a lovely in-room tub), draws a cool local crowd to its bars and restaurant, and has rates that are substantially more affordable than most Napa accommodations.
