“Service Fantastico!”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

Two friends and I recently visited and the extraordinary service started before we even set foot on the plane. From the time we reached out the stff was friendly, helpful and attentive beyond expectations.

We appreciated that they took the time to know our personal tastes so they could do their best to recommend wineries, restaurants and sites they knew would suit our tastes.

Upon arrival they went out of their way to greet us and ensure everything was to our satisfaction. The smaller size of the hotel allowed a real personalized and detailed service which created an amazing customer experience!

A job well done as it was a trip that exceeded expectations as it was planned based upon their knowledge of the area combined with a genuine interest in learning about us.

The rooms are hip, fresh and more than comfortable. We really felt at home and would never hesitate to go back!

Unless you don't care about relaxing by the pool and plan to be out and about all day.

The hotel charges a $25 fee in lieu of tips, which we at first thought was fair, but when we got to thinking about it, we did not receive any services for that $25! No car parking, no bag carrying, no extras of any kind!

Rooms have super comfy beds and a small patio area, some of which are more private than others. The patio furniture could have been cleaner and I was a bit put off by a previous guest's cigar butt adorning the flower bed.

Loved the heated floor in the oversize bathroom. Did not like the high arched faucet that splashed water on the floor if you turned it on to more than a trickle.

Service was friendly, especially in the restaurant next door, which is great for breakfast and I was told, pizza, though we didn't get to try that.

Room Tip: We liked our private courtyard room.

Dear Jane,
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at North Block Hotel.
I apologize for the disturbance the neighboring construction caused - the amount of noise and dust last week came as a bit of a surprise to us all.
The good news is things are a bit quieter now that the first phase of major work appears to complete. Also, we’ll have a great new neighbor in the coming year – R+D Kitchen from the Hillstone Group.
Our service fee program was created to complement our all-inclusive pricing philosophy that includes wireless internet, in-room espresso and daily delivery of filtered water. If you contact me directly, I’d be happy to remove the service charge from your bill.
Again, I thank you - your feedback provides valuable insight that allows me to make continuous improvements to our guest experience.
Best regards,
Ty Accornero

I had mistakenly booked two hotels the same night, and the North Block was kind enough to cancel my reservation, though it was 5 days away. We wanted to stay in downtown Yountville, close to restaurants and tasting rooms. Next trip to Napa, we are SO there!

My husband does a lot of business in the Napa and Sonoma area and I sometimes join him and spend a night. We have stayed up and down the valley, but not at the North Block yet and are so glad to have found a new spot. The rooms, though smallish, are very nicely done - super soft sheets, a beautiful bathroom with the wonderful rainshower-showerhead, heated floors (although we went during summer so no need), a HUGE closet, a little private patio in back with chairs and one in front as well that overlook the little plaza in the middle of the hotel with a fountain. Nice toiletries, a wonderful on-site restaurant, a short walk to "town"; we found nothing to complain about and everything to love. A MINOR thing, and this is only because I prefer hard beds, was that the bed was very soft - my husband loved it, however. We also went for a refreshing swim in the nice pool - I think we've found our new go-to place in the Valley!

We had such a great experience at North Block, and it all started from the moment we walked through the door. The staff was warm and friendly, but not overly stuffy. The hotel has a beautiful courtyard which the balcony in our room overlooked. The courtyard actually has an outdoor fireplace, tons of cozy seating and offers such a cool vibe for just hanging out and enjoying a glass of wine. Plus...the hotel is dog friendly which totally added to the properties laid back, wine country feel. Amazing pool and the bed in the room was awesome! I didn't want my time at North Block to end...this is a must visit location!
