Discover Luxury and Adventure
in the Heart of California Gold Country
The National Hotel in Jackson, CA the Grande dame of years past, an historical landmark of the gold mining and Wild West history of Amador County, has been lovingly restored to her former glory. The National Hotel is now a full service, luxury boutique hotel offering guests opulent accommodations, a full bar, an impressive wine cellar-tasting room, fine dining at Stanley's Steakhouse and casual fare at the deli café. Impeccable hospitality and five-star service await you at the National Hotel in Jackson, the gateway to California’s Amador Wine Country, the Shenandoah Valley, and history rich gold country.
When you walk into the National, you will be transported to an oasis of gentility and loveliness from a bygone era; an era where manners, beauty and impeccable customer service were the norm. In an area where wild shootings, crazed gold miners and unsavory fortune seekers abounded, the original National Hotel was a bastion of civilization.
On your journey to Jackson, you’ll be immersed in the jaw-dropping beauty of California's Old West, tales of the gold rush, period antiques and wild ghost stories. When you arrive, you’ll be surrounded by the historic elegance of the National Hotel and the start of your next adventure: historic trails, shopping, fishing, camping, river rafting, spelunking, and gold panning. If you're feeling energetic, there's plenty to keep you active: cycling, skiing, (at nearby Kirkwood) and horseback riding.
