Guide to Gay Friendly Hotels in Napa, CA (2024 Update)

Search and book Lesbian Gay Friendly Hotels Napa, CA.

Lesbiangaybisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in the United States have evolved in recent decades. However, LGBT Americans may still face some legal and many social challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents, particularly in states with large conservative populations, such as in the Deep South; in rural areas; and in some Native American tribal nations.

U.S. federal law does not explicitly include protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. In June 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that sexual orientation and gender identity are included under “sex” as a prohibited ground of employment discrimination in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

California is seen as one of the most liberal states in the U.S. in regard to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) rights, which have received nationwide recognition since the 1970s. Same-sex sexual activity has been legal in the state since 1976.
Napa has a long history of being a  gay friendly town and in downtown we can find a few gay friendly bars as well as Green Door or Stone’s Sports Bar & Lounge are  most famous gay friendly bars in Napa, CA.
Napa is the seat of Napa County, California, in the heart of the Napa Valley wine region. Its downtown is known for late-1800s and early-1900s architecture, a riverfront promenade with shops and restaurants, and an arts scene anchored by the Napa Valley Opera House. The Oxbow Public Market houses a farmer’s market and cheese shop, and the Napa Valley Wine Train visits area wineries via vintage Pullman cars.

Such a beautiful hotel in downtown Napa! Staff was so professional. Check out the fireplace patio rooms. Make sure to eat and drink on the rooftop restaurant. Some of the best sunsets in the Napa Valley.
We loved this hotel! It is exceptionally clean. The pool, although not deep, is lovely to sit in with a cocktail. The bar is a beautiful setting and is lively. The rooms are very modern and nicely decorated. The beds are extremely comfortable. The service at the front desk is exceptional. I would highly recommend this hotel if you’re looking for a comfortable stay in Napa.

We stayed in The Archer’s Den with a fireplace and balcony. The suite was beautiful! There was a large balcony with a fireplace overlooking downtown Napa, a living room with wet bar/mini kitchen, and a separate bedroom and bath. The suite was huge, and featured a wonderful modern wine country vibe. The bathroom had a large walk-in shower, double vanity and huge soaking tub.

As locals, we have frequented the Sky and Vine rooftop bar and Charlie Palmer Steak on numerous occasions. Now that we have experienced the beautiful rooms and exceptional hospitality, the Archer will definitely be at the top of our list of recommendations to our Napa visitors or locals looking for a “Staycation.

 2. The Westin Verasa Napa 4* – Gay Friendly Hotels Napa Valley

The Westin Verasa Napa
The Westin Verasa Napa

Ideally situated along the Napa River in the Napa wine region, the eco-friendly Westin Verasa boasts gourmet restaurants and an outdoor saltwater pool with panoramic mountain views. Spacious suites include a kitchenette.

The modern suites are decorated in warm colors with bright accents and dark wood furniture. Each offers a separate living room, 2 wall-mounted flat-screen TVs and a private balcony. Bathrooms feature a separate soaking tub and bathrobes.

Guests can relax on the large sundeck or by the firepit on the terrace. The Westin Verasa-Napa offers a modern gym as well as bocce courts. The concierge desk can arrange wine tours.

Located on the riverbank in downtown Napa, this upscale hotel is 3 minutes’ walk from the Napa Valley Wine Train and a 5-minute stroll from Oxbow Public Market.

Modern rooms have flat-screen TVs, desks and free Wi-Fi, as well as rainfall showers and pillow-top mattresses. Upgraded rooms offer kitchenettes. Suites add balconies, kitchens and living rooms with pull-out sofas. Dog beds and treats are available (fee).

Parking is free. There’s an acclaimed French restaurant, a bar and a lounge, plus a business center and 5 meeting rooms. Additional amenities include a fitness center, a spa, and an outdoor saltwater pool with a bar and a hot tub.

 The hotel is large and is located in an excellent part of town. We walked to Oxbow Market, Model bakery (both are delicious) and some other bars in the downtown area. The check in staff was friendly and the wine tasting each day was nice. We had a two bedroom two bath suite and it was perfect for our group and less expensive than getting two rooms at some of the other local hotels.

It’s not a boutique or trendy hotel but it had everything we needed and we were very happy. Parking is free and we had no issues getting our car to go to the wineries. I would definitely stay here again.

Very good location close to the Oxbow Market, a trendy collection of small restaurant spaces within a large building. Walking distance to downtown Napa but there is plenty of free parking in that area if you don’t want to walk.

There is a $20/day resort fee that includes valet parking with in/out privileges. There is no self-parking even though you can park out on the street without charge, if you don’t want to wait for the valet. It also includes a daily wine tasting in the lobby. During our stay, moderately priced wines were featured (around $30/bottle) so it’s not cheap Gallo wine but it’s certainly not Duckhorn Vineyards either.

We absolutely adored our stay at the Westin Verasa Napa. The location was wonderful; we were able to walk to Oxbow Public Market, Gott’s, and many other nearby spots. The hotel also offered shuttle service in the evenings on the weekend, so we were easily able to explore the adorable downtown area!

The hotel also offered nightly wine tastings from different local vineyards, which was a nice way to unwind at the end of the day. The lounge/restaurant in the lobby was also lovely and had many great menu selections.

Oh, and to top it off, they had a Peloton in the fitness center, which was awesome! The rest of the fitness center was lovely too – a good number of machines and other equipment, plus chilled towels, water, and earbuds.

We loved our stay here and can’t wait to come back.

The hotel is in an ideal location in downtown Napa to base your wine country activities. Walking distance to Oxbow Public Market, the Culinary Institute of America and the rest of downtown Napa, this Westin can’t be beat for location. As has been mentioned many numerous times in the reviews, the suites are spacious – you’re swimming in space with multiple bathrooms, a dining area/kitchen and a sitting area. The suites are appointed nicely and housekeeping keeps the whole thing very clean. It’s valet parking and the valet is very helpful. The fitness center is adequate but can get crowded at peak times due to lack of equipment/space.

This property is close to Oxbow Market. A little walk from downtown Napa. Quiet and spacious rooms. We had a King suite with a large living room, dining area, full kitchen, patio, 1 bedroom and 2 bathrooms. Very friendly and professional staff. Wine tastings and free massage in the lobby the day we arrived. Pool area is small but pleasant and cabanas are on a first come first to get it basis. They are free which is a nice perk! Drinks are not cheap but bartender was friendly. Beautiful walking path behind hotel. Would recommend and would stay again.

Nice relaxing resort in the Oxbow district within walking distance of the public market, wine tasting rooms and several restaurants. We enjoyed a suite that had a full kitchen. Room was large and well appointed. We tried the Bank cafe for a late dinner and also for breakfast. Good service and food was very good. There is a complimentary wine tasting in the late afternoon. Large lobby bar and also a Michelin rated restaurant on the property, La Toque. Nice walking paths and quite scenic.

Farmhouse Inn
Farmhouse Inn

Located in the heart of the Russian River Valley, central to Napa and Sonoma wine country and over 500 wineries, this family owned boutique inn features a Michelin-starred restaurant and renowned spa on site. Free WiFi is included

All rooms at the Farmhouse Inn include fireplaces, flat-screen TVs, luxurious premium bedding, refrigerators, seating areas. A luxurious en suite bathrooms offers a spa bath or steam shower.

Complimentary concierge services at Farmhouse Inn are provided. An outdoor pool and hot tub are available for guest use.

Set in the Russian River Valley, this chic farmhouse-style hotel is set on a property dating from 1872. It’s 2 miles from Sonoma wineries, and 21.7 miles from the Pacific Ocean.

The refined, woodsy rooms feature feather beds, flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Some rooms add fireplaces and vaulted ceilings, as well as saunas and private decks.

Full breakfast is available, and there’s an acclaimed farm-to-table restaurant. Other amenities include a heated outdoor pool, and a spa. Parking is free

Nestled in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County, the Farmhouse experience is an authentic wine country haven of stylish comfort, handcrafted amenities, and attention to every detail. We are surrounded by world class wineries and 100’s of acres of vineyards.
Our unique West County location offers an incredible wine country experience with the added benefits of the majestic redwood forest and the breathtaking Sonoma Coast all within miles of the resort. With only 25 rooms we pride ourselves on the Inn’s intimacy and privacy, creating a feeling of visiting a private estate. Once at the resort you can enjoy our 13 year-awarded Michelin-starred Restaurant featuring the best of Sonoma dining and surrender to our Farm-to-Table Spa with customized, handcrafted rituals using ingredients from our fruit, flower and herb gardens.
The hotel room was beautiful with a huge bathtub and steam shower, the reception had a complimentary ‘bath bar’ where you could pick up bath salt, soaps etc to have your own spa in the room! The beds were super comfy and the room had a fireplace that worked both indoor and outside on the patio, really cozy!
We had a great dinner at the restaurant and they were super accommodating to our dietary needs. The staff was great, especially the concierge Andrea who hooked us up at all the greatest wineries. Couldn’t imagine a better place to stay and can’t wait to be back.
The Inn has 25 rooms spread out throughout the property with charming little nooks to lose yourself in with a good book and a glass of wine; not to be fooled by its name – this is an upscale destination with more amenities and luxury than your usual 5 star hotels. The lobby was quaint with self served boutique soap, a pool that was very private with fire pits on most of the day to enjoy self made s’mores, a farmstand food truck for lunch, a relaxing spa, spacious elegantly appointed rooms with enormous bathrooms and indoor/outdoor fireplaces, outdoor terrace space, and homemade cookies at the bedside every night.
Evening complimentary wine tastings from local wineries was a bonus and I could eat at the Farmhouse Restaurant for dinner every night – they made our Anniversary dinner very special and it was hands down our favorite meal during our 5 days in the CA wine country.

The property is beautiful and unique with the layout (lots of smaller buildings on the property). They have many special “extras” such as nightly s’mores, take-away homemade sugar scrubs and soaps, nightly turndown service with the best cookies you’ll ever eat, nightly wine tastings from local wineries…I could go on!

We stayed in one of the small cottages and were immediately impressed with the cleanliness and consideration put into the room. Our cottage had a personal sauna, a very nice perk!

The restaurant is next-level good. We both decided it was our favorite dinner ever, without a question.

We also had spa services here and the spa was magnificent.

It was such a relaxing and luxurious time, I highly recommend staying here if you’re booking a trip to Sonoma county.
