Napa Embassy Suites

This was a funny little story to report. I didn't even know Napa had an Embassy Suites, but it would definitely be a good budget option for a stay up in the area, where your average hotel room seems to run around $400 and higher in high season.

Though Embassy Suites are part of the Hilton family, you don't often associate them with luxury or gourmet destinations. In Napa, however, even the budget places apparently have to up their game in order to attract food-savvy travelers, and that is why the property has brought on a whole new team to revamp its Food and Beverage offerings, and changed the restaurant to an upscale eatery called Grille 29.
