· The restaurant, Andaz Farmer's Table and the lounge, Mercantile Social will feature "Napa-to-table" fare, all locally sourced. And the all-important beverage list will focus on high-end boutique wines from Napa Valley along with craft beers and spirits. The restaurant will be open for breakfast and dinner.
· The 141 guest rooms are now outfitted with hardwood floors and modern furnishings in an "earthy" color scheme. Bathrooms have white marble floors, walk-in showers and toiletries from Lydia Mondavi's 29 Cosmetics, named after Highway 29 which runs the length of Napa. (And yes, that is Mondavi as in Mondavi wines.) And of course, there will be the Andaz brand standards of free WiFi and complimentary minibar snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.
We'll be keeping a close eye on the exact opening date for Andaz Napa but after that, we've got not only Andaz Amsterdam to keep us busy but also Andaz Savannah which should reopen soon after another Andazformation from an AVIA property. Then beyond that, we're getting geared up for Andaz Wailea in Maui.
Recently, the Points Guy got a hard hat tour of the property, which is set to open in Spring 2013. Interesting to note, it will be Maui’s first LEED-certified luxury hotel. There's no word on the pricing yet but since it offers free WiFi and free minibar snacks, it might just beat out the Four Seasons Maui in terms of perks.
