Honoring Napa County Hotel Icons…Past and Present
Former President of the Westin NA Hotel Chain and CEO of a small luxury hotel management company, Jim is a highly decorated hotel veteran. He advised on the development of and operated the famed Bardessono, one of two LEED Certified Platinum hotels in America. He was recently recognized as the Manager of the Year in California for small resort hotels.
Four Sisters Inns
In Napa County Shelley operates the Milliken Creek Inn, the historic Maison Fleurie (Magnolia Hotel in Yountville, 1873), the Blackbird Inn, and the Lavender Inn, as well as twelve other hotels in California through her management company, Four Sisters Inns.
Auberge du Soleil
Mark Harmon and his extraordinary team have built Auberge Resorts into a highly acclaimed international luxury collection of exceptional resorts. Today, Mark’s deep ties to the Napa Valley are embodied in Auberge du Soleil, Calistoga Ranch, Solage, and the soon to be developed VieVage in south Napa.
Napa River Inn
Preservationist, developer, civic leader and history buff, Harry worked tirelessly in the 1990s to save Napa’s historic 1884 Hatt Mill complex. Many attribute the renaissance of downtown Napa to Harry’s vision and pertinacity. Today it is a unique four-star hotel with restaurants, shops, and a night club.
Mark & Carolynne Wilkinson
Dr. Wilkinson’s Hot Springs Resort
The Wilkinsons continue the tradition of health and hospitality first brought to Calistoga in 1946 by their parents, Dr. John and Edi Wilkinson. They recently served their 1,000,000th guest at their iconic hotel and spa.
White Sulphur Springs and the Windsor Hotel
San Francisco hotelier Swen Alstrom purchased California’s oldest resort, White Sulphur Springs (opened 1852,) and operated it from 1861 through 1880. He then built the Windsor Hotel in 1881 and operated it until his demise in 1885. The Windsor became the Hotel St. Helena, Napa County’s longest running hotel.
We can supply your hotel or business with elegantly framed historic photos of iconic Napa scenes. Some examples of our most popular photos follow below. More photos are available on our online catalogue.
