NAPA, Calif.—River Terrace Inn, a luxury Napa Valley hotel that is part of Noble House Hotels & Resorts’ portfolio, recently completed a $5 million expansion and renovation encompassing the porte cochere, lobby and front desk, hallways, ALBA restaurant and kitchen, guestrooms, meeting and event spaces, fitness center, and more.
“Our extensive expansion and renovation will allow us to capture additional business and leisure travelers coming to Napa Valley and provide them with an idealistic setting and luxurious accommodations,” says Christine McDermott, general manager of River Terrace Inn.
River Terrace Inn added six new luxury riverfront guestrooms and two suites, each with a fireplace, patio, and separate shower and jetted bathtubs. The outdoor pool was removed, and a River Walk Clearing outdoor event space added. Additionally, the hotel created a new 1,400-square-foot ballroom opening out onto the Napa River as well as various outdoor breakout spaces for meetings and events.
The outdoor terrace at ALBA, the property’s recently opened dining venue, has a new full bar and outdoor fire pits. The hotel also expanded the restaurant’s kitchen to meet increasing demand for Executive Chef Zanty Tesorero’s cuisine that pays homage to the local foodways. A new feature mirror in the indoor lounge will bring in more natural light from the outside and reflect the natural surroundings of the property.
The renovation included remodeling the porte cochere and lobby, including removing the front desk and replacing it with individual PODS to present a more streamlined arrival experience that allows staff to interact with guests on a more personal level. The property’s hallways have new carpet and paint, and the fitness center relocated, expanded, and outfitted with new equipment.
River Terrace Inn is less than an hour’s drive from San Francisco and the Bay Area.
