The Best Hotels in Napa Valley?

Per the U.S. News & World Report Travel Section some of the best hotels in Napa Valley are in Sonoma! Maybe they could use some help with geography; maybe they figure their readers don't care.

Under Hotels > USA > California are several popular destinations such as Napa Valley, Disneyland, Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, etc.

Under the Napa Valley listing at number six is the Gaige House, a 19th century home-turned-hotel nestled in the tiny village of Glen Ellen in, um, Sonoma Valley. Number nine is MacArthur Place, another 19th century estate turned luxury hotel and spa--in the town of Sonoma. Three more in the top 20 are in Sonoma County, also.

Per an article in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat when the owner of the Gaige House called and tried to explain they weren't in Napa the person on the other said, "You're either in Napa or you're not on the list." So for now we're all in Napa!

The list

Dear travel writers, here's a reference map for you all.
