“Green, modern hotel - with great small touches”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

We came across H2 hotel in Healdsburg when reviewing properties on TripAdvisor and really liked what I saw. The price was not cheap, but they did have a pretty good rate for non-weekend nights. The rate also included breakfast as well as free bike rental. The hotel location was great, only a couple blocks away from the main square and within walking distance to many of restaurants. There's also a restaurant on the first floor called Spoonbar, which we didn't try this time. The hotel looked very modern and somewhat minimalistic from the outside. They are actually LEED certified, and we definitely saw some "green" features in and around the hotel. There wasn't really a "lobby" area. As soon as we came in, we saw the restaurant on the left and a lounge, seating area on the right. The check in counter was the same for both the restaurant and the hotel. Check in time was guaranteed for 3 PM. We also saw the water bar which was a very cool concept. The hotel provided 2 free bottles of water in the hotel room: 1 sparkling and 1 flat water. If you ran out, you can get free refills at the water bar in the lobby. This was such a cool idea!

The room was good sized, very clean, and modern. We got the King bed which was so huge. The bathroom consisted of a big shower and a separate toilet area. One of the "green" features were the soap/shampoo dispensers, as opposed to the usual small containers. There was a small balcony seating area outside which we didn't use at all, but it was nice to see.

Breakfast was also included in our rate. It was served in the Spoonbar restaurant on the first floor, from 6 AM to 10 AM. Breakfast consisted of yogurt, granola, eggs, fritata, and many wonderful pastries (scones, banana bread, muffin, cupcake, toast), as well as apples, bananas, and some juices.

We read in the welcome book that the hotel also provided free DVD movie rentals. So we stopped by the front desk and grabbed two DVDs. It was such a small thing, but we really enjoy these small touches such as providing free DVD movies to watch. This hotel definitely had a few pluses that made them unique and memorable.

We definitely enjoyed our one night stay at H2 hotel. The location was great, room was clean and modern, and all the small touches really made a difference. We would definitely not hesitate to stay here again in the future!

We LOVED H2 - stayed there 2 nights before heading over to Napa. We LOVED the cleanliness of the hotel - the staff was very helpful and friendly - and the Spoonbar was fun with some great deals on bottles of wine. There's nothing better than a clean room with NICE HOT WATER - love that shower!!! And being able to meet friends for a great bottle of wine served at the right termperature and at a fair price!!! The 'free' b-fast was just OK - if you want a big hot b-fast there are lots of places near by - but that should not stop you from staying at H2 - EVERYTHING ELSE was PERFECT. Thanks for a nice stay - we will be back!!!

Room Tip: We liked our room which didn't face the street - but I am really crazy about noise so I asked fo...

We loved this hotel. We were there on new years and the place was almost empty but the restaurant and bar were hopping. The rooms are georgeous and modern with reclaimed wood and other materials giving it a great look. I would surely stay again.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a few nights in the summer. We both loved the hotel, it's a very cool, modern building. The rooms are very nice, comfy king size bed and the one we stayed in had a little balcony. We faced the main street though and it was a little bit noisy, though not enough to keep us up at night.
They have free bike rentals which we took advantage of. They will give you maps of the surrounding areas depending on how far you want to ride. I would definitely recommend doing a self guided bike tour of the local wineries. No designated driver necessary! Just get started early enough as many of the wineries close their tasting rooms by 4ish.
The hotel restaurant, Spoon Bar was also really good. I would definitely stay here again.

I spent two nights at h2 in early January. The room was well appointed and very comfortable. I particularly enjoyed the private patio outside our room and the unique water bar in the hallway. I love water and to have fresh, filtered, cold water available was very refreshing. The green features were great as well, which I hope other hotels can do as well as h2 does.

The H2 is one of the nicest hotel experiences I have had. Set in beautiful Healdsburg, it offered us everything we could have wanted. The open form reception/restaurant/bar/sitting area is welcoming and spacious. Our room was fantastic with an open form large bathroom, comfortable bed, little balcony overlooking the pretty street (no noise issues). The Spoon-Bar had an amazing cocktail selection and we enjoyed pre-dinner drinks both nights snugged in with all the other keen patrons. The front opened garage style onto the sidewalk and offered good people watching. The bartenders were show-men. We enjoyed a nice dinner although there was a bit of inconsistency with the serving sizes depending on what you ordered. The pasta entree was tiny but the lamb enormous - didn't make sense. The food was delicious though. Breakfast was buffet style and very good. The solar heated pool is very nice. The green roof is worth a peek, covered in plants and take note of all the green/environmental aspects that makes this a LEED Gold green building. Eco-friendly.

Room Tip: they are all good
