About St Helena
There’s no way of escaping the Rodeo Drive comparison. It’s a cliche, but St Helena has the high end boutiques and fancy restaurants to warrant the comparison. Parking is also a nightmare. But St Helena is so historically pretty and so close to so many of Napa’s most popular wineries, and the farmer’s market is just so good, that it’s difficult not to want to overlook the extra people on the streets and the need to book a table in advance. The best places to stay in St Helena also have some of the best restaurants in town, so choosing from our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in St Helena could at least help solve the dinner reservations issue.
