Napa Valley does not just bring in tourists and wine enthusiasts. In fact, it is a mecca for business travel. Near the end of the quarter, and especially during harvest season, companies send sales representatives to Napa to lock in wines for their restaurants for the next year. Many companies organize sales conferences and team events here.
If you are traveling to Napa on business (whether in the wine industry or another), finding the right lodging is critical. After all, you want a convenient drive over to San Francisco and other major metropolitan cities, but also a chance to relax and make a weekend getaway out of your visit.
Here are ways to get the most from your trip to Napa for business with a touch of leisure:
- Get an Early Start: If you plan to come in on a Friday, get an early start so that you can avoid the traffic in downtown, but also the highways out toward the major cities. This gives you time to find your hotel, check-in, and scope out activities and dining in the area.
- Go for Convenience: While it might be nice to stay at a secluded vineyard, you are here on business. You need a centralized location that puts you within walking distance (to save on rental car mileage), and allows quick access to the highways leading out of Napa Valley and toward San Francisco.
- Consider the Amenities: Amenities are important when traveling on business. Look for hotels that have free internet and Wi-Fi, phones with personalized voicemail, in-room coffee and tea options, large work desks in the room, and comfortable accommodations.
- Corporate Travel Discounts: Not all Napa Valley hotels offer corporate discounts. However, you can find hotels that offer packages so that you can explore wine country while you are here on business.
