The reception area of The Sunburst Hotel features clean, modern lines.
CALISTOGA, CA—Broughton Hotels expanded its portfolio of boutique hotels with the grand opening here of The Sunburst Hotel.
Completely renovated, the 50-room hotel is located in the Napa Valley wine country. The retro-modern hotel features landscaped grounds and mineral pools.
The Sunburst’s rooms feature a color palette of orange, white and blue with bright green accents. There are four different room types; each featuring plush bedding, a mix of furnishings, wall murals and spacious bathrooms.
The Sunburst also offers complimentary boxed breakfast for guests eager to tour the area.
The mineral pools are created from a natural geothermal well below the hotel. Water is pumped directly into the hot tubs and soaking pools, as well as the hotel’s swimming pool. Guests can relax by the pool on modular lounges under large umbrellas and spray misters.
“We’re excited to be entering into one of the most beautiful areas in the country,” stated Larry Broughton, founder/CEO of Broughton Hotels. “We love being in the hospitality business in Northern California because it’s creative, free-spirited and quirky; and guests come looking for unique experiences when they travel to the Bay Area and Napa Valley. With The Sunburst, we have a property that will appeal to the urbanite looking for a distinctive wine-country experience that’s also in walking distance to the charm and history of downtown Calistoga."
