About The Piccolo
Get to Know Our Paso Robles Winery Hotel
As a vacation destination, Paso Robles is just about perfect. Nestled amongst lush vineyards and olive groves, it’s a city with deep roots where the good life is savored and shared with the welcoming spirit that’s defined our city since the very beginning. But we thought the Paso Robles experience could be made even better. Which is why we built The Piccolo. The Piccolo is an intimate 24-room boutique hotel in the heart of historic downtown Paso Robles, just a short distance from many famed California wineries. The vision for The Piccolo is to seamlessly fit into the narrative of Paso Robles and be a catalyst for the next generation of experiences that people will enjoy here. The Piccolo is Paso Perfected.
"Why a piccolo and why in Paso Robles?”
A piccolo is a small flute sounding at an octave higher than any other—playing the very highest notes in an orchestra. Inspired by the small yet mighty instrument, our vision for The Piccolo is to deliver service, accommodations, and experiences at an octave higher than any other Paso Robles hotel, while operating at a fraction of the size. At our intimate 24-room hotel, guests can expect an elevated boutique hotel experience where every moment hits a high note.
Here, you’ll enjoy the best that Paso Robles has to offer, right at your fingertips with our collection of premier amenities and services: you can relax with a book in the cozy library, take in views of downtown at the town’s first rooftop bar, Tetto, enjoy a taste of local wines in our wine lounge, The Piper, and store the wines you’ve purchased in our wine lockers. However you prefer to unwind, The Piccolo will take your wine country experience to new heights.
Designed with Paso Robles Flare
Designed by local architects at Ten Over Studio, “the building’s architecture is intended to represent an evolution of the [Paso Robles] Inn,” Jim Duffy, President and CEO of Ten Over Studio, explains: “Reminiscent of traditional downtown hotel design with clean, crisp, contemporary details and authentic materials, this composition results in a timeless, graceful blend of old and new.”
While charming details like exposed brick walls serve as a respectful nod to the rich history and tradition of sister property, the Paso Robles Inn, the resemblance stops there. Inside, The Piccolo is an atmosphere of timeless elegance marked by simple yet sophisticated furnishings, reflecting the vision of a Paso Perfected. "All the details in The Piccolo are really geared towards Paso Robles. We’ve incorporated as much local artistry and craftsmanship as possible into the property,” said Chief Operating Officer of Martin Resorts, Margaret Johnson, who worked closely with Ten Over in hand-selecting every little element of the hotel.
In keeping with our commitment to providing guests with an authentic Paso Robles experience, we are proud to feature custom pieces by local artisans, such as made-to-order chandeliers by Orcutt-based blacksmith, Hans Duus, a 76-foot mural handpainted by LC Studio Tutto, beautiful air plants by Lauren Dunn of Dunn Gardens, and more.
