“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We stopped in Napa during our honeymoon and spent a few nights here. This place is fantastic. After a hellish drive from San Fran, the staff immediately offered us some sparkling wine while checking in - much needed and appreciated. They showed us to our room - all which are accessed through the courtyard - and it was great. It felt like we had our own apartment. A bottle of wine and note offering congrats on the wedding were waiting for us.

The room itself was great. Clean and modern with a cute little balcony. Bathroom was fantastic with a rain shower and separate tub and his and her sinks. Bed was comfy.

The property is really nice. The courtyard has a bunch of places to sit and drink wine or just chill, including a fireplace. The restaurant on site, Reddwood, was delicious - we had breakfast and a few lunches there. The best part of all is the location - it's a short walk from amazing restaurants and fun galleries/shops. The town of Yountville is so picturesque and walking past the gardens of The French Laundry and through the little park were a treat.

The hotel set us up with a great driver from Jarrar Tours, who was so fun and knowledgeable. And the spa treatments were fantastic. I can't imagine staying anywhere else on our next visit.

We were here over Labor Day weekend, our third stay at North Block, and can't say enough good things about our experience. Front desk, bellman, housekeeping all very friendly and attentive. They went out of their way to look into our request for a driver, make reservations, etc. Rooms are nicely appointed, beds fantastic. Pool is heated and pool area bery relaxing. There can be a noise factor closer to the entrance, so book further back if you want more privacy. Location is perfect for Yountville and exploring Napa. We will definitely return.

This review is for a late DEC- early JAN stay. We wanted to stay at a hotel in an area with a great dining selection within walking distance. Since everything pretty much closes early, we also wanted a comfy room to spend our evenings. That’s how we decided on the North Block, and we weren’t disappointed. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was amazing (huge tube/nice shower), the cookies provided with turndown service were delicious, and I appreciated the free coffee in morning. You have a grocery store, bicycle rental, shopping and restaurants within walking distance. The spa was cozy, after my massage they let me walk back to the room in the robe so I could fully relax. After wine tasting during the day, we enjoyed unwinding at the hotel.

We stayed here for our anniversary and had a great time, the staff really made it a special occasion for us. Room was small but just what we needed, my only complaint was that we did not have a tub, all the pictures on the website feature beautif soaking tub but we only had a walk in shower. We enjoyed the provided cold bottled water and mini fridge to store leftovers from all the amazing restuatrants. Our room was on bottom floor in the middle of the complex and it was very quite.
My only complaint is that the fireplace lounge area was taken over by ReddWood customers 2 out of 3 nights. The first night of our stay we loved sitting there before our dinner at Bottega enjoying a glass of wine we had purchased during the day. We were excited to do that again on the next night but the area was monopolozed by ReddWood customers, who sat there and had a full meal, they took up the entire space( and they were not hotel guests,- I asked.) One night the same people where there for 3+ hours. We enjoyed having Reddwood so close but when you pay so much for hotel youexpect the seating areas to be private, especially at such a small boutique hotel where there was only one lounge area with couches. Otherwise it was fantastic.

This hotel is in a nice location, close to The French Laundry (AMAZING!). We have stayed in the past, but sadly this time was different. The beds are still very comfortable and the room appeared to be very clean. Our dissatisfaction was with the hotel staff. They felt cold and distant and seemed to only want our money. They kept pushing me to have a spa treatment. We had to ask for the fire in the patio to be started as well. Past visits, someone assisted us with luggage and we received fresh towels in the evening automatically. Something just seemed different and out of place and we couldn't quite figure it out. Pizza at Redwood was good. We will just try a different spot next time.

Dear Allison,
Thank you so much for your recent visit and review.
At North Block, our mission is for my team and I to provide North Block guests with the highest service levels and that each guest leave feeling that we are an exceptional value. Clearly we did not accomplish this during your stay.
If you are willing to give us another try, I'm convinced you'll have a much better experience.
Please reach out to me directly and I'll personally handle all the arrangements.
Many thanks & best regards,

Our recent stay was remarkable both in terms of the facility and service excellence. From the time we arrived until our all too soon departure, our expectation were not only met but exceeded. We have stayed at most of the other fine hotels in Yountville but North Block is a cut above because of its old world elegance and new world hip; delightful is an understatement. We have found other boutique personal service hotels in our many travels, but to find this in the heart of Napa was truly amazing. We would encourage you to check this out on your next trip to the Napa Valley; don't forget to enjoy the room and facilities especially the relaxing pool area, fire place at night and the Redwood restaurant on premise. For us this has been a 2nd, 3rd, 4th honeymoon: Enjoy!

Room Tip: Ask for Ty and tell him and tell him his biggest fan is Bob.

Stayed here a little over a month ago and looking forward to going back. The room was well appointed and very comfortable. From the soft sheets and thick mattress to the large bathroom with heated floor, everything was luxurious. As noted in a previous review, the bathroom lighting was a bit dim, however that was the only issue we encountered. Didn't have the opportunity to enjoy the large tub although the shower was fantastic... and there was ample room for two. The courtyard during the day was quiet while in the evening was vibrant and later that night, quiet and intimate. Didn't enjoy the spa but took a walk around the common areas to what it was like and will book a massage next time. Breakfast at the restaurant attached to the hotel was excellent.
