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 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
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.
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.
