The Duchamp Healdsburg
Ranked #7 of 9 Hotels in Healdsburg
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Our recent stay at the Duchamp Hotel was one of those exceptional getaways. From the staff who were courteous, friendly, and knowledgeable to our room which was impeccably clean with fun, well designed contemporary furnishings in a comfortable and spacious room. The six rooms are all individual cottages with their own patios. We could be as private or as social as we wanted. The breakfast was delicious and the pool area serene and lovely. The location couldn’t be better, down a little side street and off the main road but an easy 2 block walk to the main street and the Square. And don't miss their winery. In addition to some great Syrah, it has the most incredible art space and unique exhibits.

The Duchamp Hotel is comprised of six cottages surrounding a pool and spa that form an oasis in the center of Healdsburg, We particularly enjoyed it's location, which is two blocks off the square, and provides the ideal getaway from the daily commute and hectic travel schedule, with easy access to great shopping, wine tasting and restaurants, all within walking distance. Each cottage has it's own entry and patio area offering privacy and space to sit outside and enjoy morning coffee or afternoon wine. In keeping with the contemporay style of the architecture, we found the cottage to be free of unnecessary clutter, but definitely not lacking in any of the amenities you'd expect to find in an upscale property. The breakfast was excellent and we will definitely stay at the inn on our next trip to the wine country.

First, the positives: The pool and landscaping are beautiful, the location great in terms of access to the Plaza's dining options (2 blocks from the Plaza), and our cottage was very clean (and the housekeeper very helpful). The bed was comfortable (but the "sofa" -- a rectangle of wood with cushions added -- was NOT comfortable). There are 6 stand-alone cottages -- so no shared walls, always a plus for privacy.

Long list of negatives: I knew that the design would be "modern" and spare, but I think the word for the interior design is "stark." A stainless steel bathroom counter? Am I in a prison or a luxury hotel? No full-length mirror? When we used the walk-in shower, the bathroom floor got flooded with water (no shower door or curtain, floor must slope a little). The air conditioner unit is so noisy that we could not have slept with the a.c. running (every 3 minutes, there is a knocking sound as the a.c. kicks into higher gear). No bath tub. Windows consisted of a sliding glass door (we had to keep the heavy black curtain closed when we wanted privacy, as there was a walkway a few feet from our sliding door) and a small window. The only way to open or close the window was to stand on the sofa and remove the screen, then use one's hand to do the job (the window handle didn't work; learned the "manual" method by watching the housekeeper close the window). We thought the location would be quiet, as it is away from the Plaza. No, because trash trucks or construction trucks (new building going up 1/2 block away) before 6 a.m. each morning we were there -- including Sunday. With the exception of the housekeeper, we did not find the staff to be helpful.

Room Tip: 3 cottages face the pool. These have the most charming view and fenced private patios -- but you wi...

The room was very modern and nice although we had to turn off the air conditioning because of how noisy it was. The pool and spa were really nice and gave us a break from visiting wineries.
I liked the location but some construction is going on and I thought that the price should have reflected that.
Very nice breakfast.
The wine was overpriced.

Room Tip: Right now room one two and three are closes to the construction work.

Super cool series of free-standng, industrial chic villas clustered around a beautiful pool with amply artwork on the property. Just one block off the main drag in Healdsburg but mentally miles away. Peaceful, comfortable, romantic. Very knowledgeable staff. A terrific place to recommend with no hesitation.

This hotel is a small group of villas ( 6) that is nested down a very private street, one block off the square in Healdsburg. This hotel is also conveniently located near all the best restaurants and tasting rooms within the town. What makes the hotel feel special is a great staff who makes you feel pampered and well supported as a tourist. Staff members know the town well and provided very useful feedback on travel and food.

The physical space was also great. The hotel has the best pool in town and you feel like a movie star lounging in and around this beautiful priviate space. Additionally, the hotel has a great hot tub, which is a major asset for any hotel.

The room was also outstanding in that is was clean, very modern and minimalist in feel. The air conditioner worked excellent for the duration of the trip and cooled the room perfectly, which was needed during certain times of the hot day.The shower was also outstanding, in that it was walk in, which made you feel like you were in a spa-it even had side show jets, which felt great after a long day in town.

You cannot go wrong with this hotel. Wish the price was cheaper, but I would go back because of they run a first rate establishment.

Pros:
Pool and hot tub
Upgraded room
privacy

Cons:
Price

Room Tip: There are three villas by the pool, and three away from the pool near the creek- you should decide w...

We spent a long weekend at the Duchamp in mid-July. It is a great spot to rest your head after a long day of wine tasting in the Russian River Valley. The hotel is simple and the concept is very inviting; a private compound with a handful of small individual cottages right in the heart of downtown Healdsburg…all surrounding a very comfortable pool and hot tub. The location is A+, and the cottages are adequate. My only negatives are that the cottages are cooled by window A/C units which are noisier at night and can't cool as well as central. Plus, during the day our housekeeper came in and cranked our A/C up to 80 degrees. I understand trying to save energy, but 80 degrees is a bit excessive during the heart of summer. Also, the front desk is unattended from 12-3 and I think after 7 or so.

The cottages have a great modern decor, and the shower is spacious and comfortable with body sprays, a hand shower and a shower head (but no tub). My girlfriend also really enjoyed the Aveda shampoos and lotions in each room.

I would definitely recommend this hotel if you do not require full service amenities, or 24 hour service.
