Overview: There are not a lot of properties in Napa that can host a corporate event. The Meritage in Napa is one that works well for small or medium sized events. One of the things I liked best about this property was that it felt like the event “owned” the property. I think because it isn’t the largest property, the staff felt very focused on the attendees and meeting planners.
Ballroom: The main ballroom is the Meritage Grand Salon, which is approximately 8,000 square feet and sits directly off the main lobby. There are a couple of pre-function spaces and a terrace that connect the ballroom area to the main pool and offer beautiful views of the area.
A second ballroom is located in an adjacent building and is more of a standard ballroom.
An amazing cave space is also available for receptions and small events.
Location: The Napa area is beautiful but a site visit to this property is advised because the wine area is very large, and the Meritage is set at the far southern end of the area.
Con: The ballrooms are not very large, so the ceiling heights and power take some creativity to work for a larger event. A creative room and stage design is a must for these rooms.
Producer’s Notes: If Napa is the destination that you want, then the Meritage is a great and accommodating option.
