JdV by Hyatt Enters California’s Scenic Wine Country with Calistoga Motor Lodge and Spa as Newest Addition to Growing Independent Lifestyle Portfolio
Hyatt’s first Independent Collection property in Napa Valley now open and bookable through Hyatt channels

CHICAGO, IL (July 13, 2023) – Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced today that Calistoga Motor Lodge and Spa, a retro-inspired property with 97 guestrooms and suites, has joined the JdV by Hyatt portfolio and is now open and bookable through Hyatt channels. Perfectly placed at the head of the Silverado Trail in the heart of California’s wine country, Calistoga Motor Lodge and Spa marks the first Independent Collection hotel in Napa Valley.

Inspired by California’s fruitful and spirited wine region with design by New York-based design firm AvroKo, Calistoga Motor Lodge and Spa breathes new life into the classic roadside motel experience, evoking a spirit of exploration that’s powered by adventure and steeped in nostalgia. Framed by bucolic vineyards, natural hot springs and bike trails, the property is a hidden gem just 50 miles north of San Francisco, making it an ideal getaway for road trip warriors and backyard explorers alike.

Calistoga Motor Lodge and Spa recently expanded its offerings with 34 all-new Deluxe King and Deluxe Queen guestrooms each featuring a private terrace or balcony and elevated California comfort with thoughtful design, locally sourced furnishings and inspired views of the Mayacamas. The hotel is expected to add five new villa accommodations with expansive outdoor terraces and fire pits and bring the total key count to 102 rooms in 2024.  

Perfectly poised in a destination known for its geothermal hot springs, mineral baths and mud baths, Calistoga Motor Lodge and Spa is also home to two natural mineral water pools, a mineral water hot tub and full-service spa, MoonAcre, a playful, relaxed and welcoming environment where guests can enjoy its signature mud bake, a spin on Calistoga’s historic mud bath ritual featuring geothermal salt soaks and mineral-rich baths. Guests opting for the mud bake can paint their skin with mineral rich mud, relax in the spa garden, dry in the sun and rinse under the outdoor shower before starting their next treatment of choice.

Suitable for fun-loving celebrations, playful meetings and retreats, Calistoga Motor Lodge and Spa provides an ideal space to gather in California wine country. The property’s on-site restaurant, Fleetwood, is a hyper-local produce-driven experience where Napa Valley ingredients meet the restaurant’s Italian and Mediterranean vibe. A rotating, locally inspired menu, created by Chef Edgar Zecua, emphasizes seasonality and wood-fired fine food and pizzas. All dishes are simply prepared and served casually in a lively, community-focused dining space with indoor-outdoor seating for up to 152 guests, private dining rooms, oversized lawn games like a giant tumbling timber wood game and corn hole, as well as a rotating calendar of events including local musicians, trivia nights and more.

“Calistoga Motor Lodge and Spa demonstrates Hyatt’s commitment to growing the JdV by Hyatt portfolio with one-of-a-kind boutique hotels in key leisure markets to meet the continued demand from our guests and members looking to live in the moment and celebrate the joy of life,” said David Tarr, senior vice president, development, Americas, Hyatt. “We’re excited to welcome Calistoga Motor Lodge and Spa into our World of Hyatt loyalty program and to offer all travelers a getaway experience that embodies the true spirit of Napa Valley.”

With its debut in renowned Napa Valley, the JdV by Hyatt brand collection now features more than 50 vibrant, independent hotels, offering travelers and locals an inclusive stay at properties that are deeply rooted in the fabric of their neighborhood. Hyatt continues to grow its brands with intent in key markets that matter most to guests and World of Hyatt members. Hyatt anticipates several new openings and renovations across all brands in California in 2023 and beyond, including Hyatt Regency Irvine, Thompson Palm Springs, Caption by Hyatt Roseville, and Caption by Hyatt Sacramento.
