In-depth Meritage Resort & Spa article

The North Bay Business Journal posted an in-depth article regarding the financial direction of The Meritage Resort & Spa, a new 165 room expansion project in Napa.

“Two years after being shelved amid worsening economic conditions, a more than $40 million expansion to The Meritage Resort & Spa is under construction as the outlook for the hospitality industry improves.

In October crews started preparing the area on the west side of the existing facility for construction of a three-story second hotel building and single-story conference center clustered around a piazza for outdoor dining and events. The Meritage will have 165 additional hotel rooms, 12,500 more square feet of indoor conference space, coffee shop, sports bar called Crush, bistro, six-lane bowling alley and 1,600-square-foot fitness center.

The Meritage Resort LLC put the expansion on hold in November 2008 as hotel managers industrywide were budgeting for a slowdown in business in 2009 as financial markets were reeling and the economy was contracting. The hotel saw its revenue per available room in 2009 fall 25 percent from 2008, according to General Manager Michael Palmer.”
