Where to stay in St. Helena

Because St. Helena is nestled in upscale wine country, most people who visit have no intention of roughing it. As such, the city sports a number of luxurious hotels. Several boast restaurants, hot tubs, and swimming pools; however, keep in mind that those with extensive grounds tend to be farther away from the main street. Budget-conscious travelers can find some more basic motels (looking farther out of town is a good way to save a few dollars). However, those staying on the outskirts should be aware that parking--particularly during high season--can be challenging in the city.

  • If I could give this place more than five stars I would, especially because of Gisele. I stopped here and was able to take a food and wine pairing tour and tasting without an appointment (this is one of the only places that will do that, but if you have more than 8 people reservations are required, and if it's a weekend, reservations are recommended). I learned so much about wine in general and food pairings, and the wine is delicious of course! It was about 100 degrees when I was there, so we spent most of our time inside, but still got to see some of the vineyards/grounds outside as well. Gisele was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. She went above and beyond to make my experience great! I cannot imagine having a better experience anywhere else. Highly, highly recommend this place!
  • Tim, our wine expert, was great! Very friendly and knowledgeable. Beautiful property! The wine isn't my favorite, but that's just my preference. Everyone in my group loved the Chardonnay.
  • Beautiful estate with incredible wine. There is plenty to see here and that is why they offer tours. Take a tour! The buildings and house will require plenty of pictures, so make sure your batteries are charged. There are plenty of place to sit and relax here, so if you're not into the tour let the others go while you rest.
  • We (a party of 4) went to Beringer and we were approached by an asian lady who started explaining the options in a way that made us feel like we weren't able to afford a $45 wine testing... that right away turned us off, no professionalism at all. We ended up going to Sterling instead, the service there was amazing, we talked with approx. 26 people there and all of them where welcoming.
  • When we visited Napa, we entered the wine tasting. A bit expensive but worth the money. Here you are in the center of the art of wine making. Awesome wines, best in service. 😊 Thank you!
