5-Day Weekend: San Francisco & Napa

American Express Platinum Card® Members can earn 5X Membership Rewards® points on prepaid Fine Hotels & Resorts® stays when they book through AmexTravel.com or can use Pay with Points for their booking. Along with exclusive extras—like late checkout, complimentary breakfast for two, a unique amenity valued at $100 and other benefits—now is the time to plot a five-day getaway.

San Francisco, California

The St. Regis San Francisco

Spend more than a couple of days in the City by the Bay and its nearby wine country, and you won’t leave your heart behind (as the song goes)—but you will fall in love with the scenery. Start with a night or two at The St. Regis San Francisco in the downtown SoMa neighborhood, where your personal butler will arrange for a relaxing treatment using Mary’s Nutritionals CBD Massage Cream (this is California, after all) in the Spa, and guide you toward the Champagne sabering ritual performed in the lobby Tuesday-Saturday at 6pm.

Taj Campton Place

Try bedding down at the Taj Campton Place, which recently partnered with Brooks Brothers to provide gala-appropriate attire should you be invited to a nearby embassy, or just for a dressy night at the on-site restaurant, celebrating its ninth year with a Michelin Star, awarded for Chef Srijith (Sri) Gopinathan’s signature Cal-Indian cuisine. With your Fine Hotels & Resorts stay, your $100 food and beverage credit can go toward his Spice Route tasting menu. Use your $15 Uber credit* (a monthly Platinum Card benefit) to hit the city attractions, like walking across the Golden Gate Bridge, strolling the Japanese Tea Gardens in Golden Gate Park, hiking among the giant redwoods in Muir Woods National Monument, or just people watching in The Castro and The Mission or shopping around Union Square and Pacific Heights. Two days of frenetic sightseeing can be exhausting, so have the concierge book a car north to Napa Valley, where more than 400 wineries turn out some of the best vintages this side of the Atlantic.

Calistoga, California

Calistoga Ranch, An Auberge Resort

Platinum Card Members can check in at noon and get a complimentary room upgrade, when available, but there’s no rush—Napa’s viticultural area is just 30 miles long and a couple of miles wide, so you can cover a lot of terrain in a short span of time. Drop your bags at Calistoga Ranch, An Auberge Resort, set on 157 acres in the upper reaches of the valley. You could use your $100 spa credit to indulge in a Wine Hydrating Facial, where resveratrol—an anti-aging molecule found in the skin of red grapes—is used to stimulate cellular renewal to reduce those annoying signs of aging.

Solage, An Auberge Resort

Choose our sister property Solage, An Auberge Resort, just a walk from downtown Calistoga, and head right out to the wineries. The hotel recently introduced a Sip & Cycle program, where guests choose from three afternoon itineraries then hop on complimentary cruisers to experience the very best of Calistoga’s wine scene, including a free wine tasting at Tank Garage Winery. Don’t feel like all that exercise? Either property can arrange a hot-air balloon ride over the dramatic scenery, and wine pairings with dinner. That 4pm late checkout means you can always fit in just one more winery before heading back to civilization.

Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco

For convenience, spend your last night at the Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco in the Yerba Buena Arts District—steps from Union Square, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Financial District. Use that $100 food and beverage credit to sample cocktails at the property’s MKT Restaurant, where mixologists incorporate honey harvested from the hotel’s rooftop beehives in stellar drinks. Don’t leave without packing a unique souvenir: custom-made lip balm with that same sweet nectar as its base—essential for use on that long flight back to reality.
