New Alila property in Napa Valley accepting reservations (Cat 7 Hyatt)


Hyatt’s new Alila property in Napa Valley, California is accepting reservations as of March 15, 2021. This is a new Category 7 Hyatt, which was formerly a Marriott Luxury Collection hotel. It looks quite nice and I imagine that long-term it will likely represent an excellent value for points or free night certificates.

The Deal

  • The Las Alcobas, a former Marriott Luxury Collection property, has beeb rebranded under Hyatt’s Alila brand as the Alila Napa Valley and is accepting reservations as of March 15, 2021
  • This is a Category 7 Hyatt, which requires 30,000 points for a standard room, 48K for a standard suite, or 60K points per night for a premium suite

Quick Thoughts

I haven’t stayed at an Alila property before, but these are meant to be luxury properties that One Mile at a Time puts on par with Park Hyatt. If that’s true, I’m sure this will be a great place to stay in Napa Valley.

Unfortunately, this won’t be quite as close to The French Laundry as I may like at a 17-minute drive (not much closer than my Choice Privileges property, The Hotel Napa Valley).

Still, I have visited Napa a couple of times and I enjoy it. I’d be happy to go back and use my Category 1-7 certificate form reaching 60 nights with Hyatt and maybe a night or two at 30K points per night given that breakfast would be included for me as a Hyatt Globalist member and there are no resort fees when redeeming World of Hyatt points. Pictures of the place look quite nice (you can look it up on Google under the old Marriott name, Las Alcobas). I’m sure Hyatt probably dressed it up a bit further.

Note the 14-day advance cancellation deadline.

If you’re interested in fall, I’d recommend making your bookings sooner rather than later if you can find availability. It’s hard to know what the travel situation will be, but it could be worth a booking if you have certificates or points itching to be put to use.

We have stayed there for 2 of our anniversaries and esp like the house Margaritas also the view from our balcony of the vineyards…


Thanks for the heads up. I didn’t see points availability for Friday/Saturday bookings on the weekend I wanted. I just booked a three night points stay and I’m attempting to see if Hyatt Concierge can change it to a two night points stay. I haven’t been yet, but I’m anxious to eat at the hotel restaurant, Acacia House. The chef’s prior restaurants, while not on the level of French Laundry are pretty spectacular.


Do you know those restaurant dining will be inclusive when you book with points? Or you will pay additional fees?


I’m assuming it’s not included, but idk.

Just remember fire season has been August to October in Northern California in the last few years…


That’s the nicest laundromat I’ve ever seen! Hopefully you can come back to Napa sometime soon 🙂


Is this hotel everything inclusive?

Ha, Nick Reyes as… The Most Interesting Man in the World, Part Deux?


Booked an award stay but was not straightforward.
-Got online first thing in AM, site had a banner indicating open for bookings, site did not work however. First just said not taking reservations on the Alila site, and then just routed to the Hyatt search page with other area properties (and this page did not acknowledge existence of Alila Napa).
-Called Hyatt, nice rep who had same experience, her advice was to try at 10 AM. She also said that points bookings would not be able to be done until March 15th when the property is open for business (she said this was a system wide Hyatt policy with any new property). I said, OK…
-10 AM same thing, it’s a no go. In addition the banner showing they are ready for bookings is gone, although the ‘reserve’ button is still there.
-Called Hyatt again, rep checked some things out and said to ‘check back on the 29th’. I’m like, ‘March 29th?’. I said, OK….
-I trusted my instincts and your and Greg’s past advice that if what the rep tells you does not make sense, ignore it …so I kept trying here and there although still not luck. But then saw Lucky’s post sometime in the afternoon that reservations were working
-booked 3 nights in September, 30K each (~$1300 per night room rate).
The reference to “March 29th” was really weird. Random date. Why would anyone say that or plan that? But I just wonder too if Hyatt hired some Marriott reps…
And in the end your advice paid off


I think we found the new Bond. #Reyes…NickReyes007

Wow, Nick, très suave photo at the French Laundry. I’m looking forward to more of your restaurant reviews.
