Las Alcobas Napa Valley

We went on a quick overnight trip to Napa to try out the newly opened Las Alcobas hotel, which is part of the SPG program. I was very excited to try this hotel because most of the rooms have direct vineyard views, which is pretty unique for Napa.

Brunch at Ad Hoc

Before we headed to the hotel, we ate brunch at our most favorite spot, Ad Hoc.  I have been to Ad Hoc numerous time, and so far enjoyed all the meals there. Brunch was a set menu (price varies; this particular menu was $34pp), and the meal was served family style. The menu listed items in black ink which were included in the set price, and everything in red was additional. The menu changes daily.

They are famous for their fried chicken, which is served every Monday dinner, and sometimes on Sundays for brunch.

To be honest I was a little disappointed that it wasn't the fried chicken. However, the chicken fried steak was AMAZING as well. The thing about ad hoc is that they make everything extremely well. We could tell that they use the best ingredients and prepare dishes as best as someone could.

We also ordered the additional french toast, which was very delicious. One tip is to order one or fewer add-ons; it does not have to equal the number of people at your table.

We were too full for the dessert and asked to pack it to go, so we could enjoy it later at the hotel. Overall, we always have a great meal at Ad Hoc.

Las Alcobas Napa

We drove up to St. Helena where the Las Alcobas is located. The hotel looked deceivingly small from the main road (we only saw one white "house"). But then as we drove up to check in, we could see the other buildings. It was still not a big area overall, especially compared to some of the other hotels in the area.

Our room was one with the vineyard view, which I was very excited about! All the rooms are pretty good sized. The style is very clean, modern, and very soothing.

The bathrooms were also very clean looking, and the dominant color was gray. I LOVED the towels and even tried to see the brand so I can buy it for home.

The vineyard view was just breathtaking.

There's also a seating area with an electric fire pit that we used to make smores at night!

The pool area was very small; we didn't use it this time around. 

We did one spa treatment (couples massage).  The spa facility was nice although also small. We each chose our own aromatherapy oil blend which was used for our treatment.

We ate dinner and breakfast at the hotel. Basic breakfast was included, but it wasn't 100% clear what was included versus not. We ordered a couple of hot items that turned out to be an additional cost. If you stay here and eat the breakfast, just make sure to confirm what is included before you start ordering like us. :) But the breakfast was tasty!

Overall we enjoyed our overnight stay at the newly opened Las Alcobas Napa! The hotel/grounds are a lot smaller than other hotels we have stayed at, and the pool is very small.  But it had that boutique feel and overall was very quiet.
