Rated 4 out of 5 by DavidSF19 Pleasant stay, staff needs improvement
This hotel is located in great location - walking distance to downtown Napa (great restaurants, wine bars, etc.) The location was perfect for the 4th of July, wine tasting and the viewing of fireworks.
The hotel itself is very well kept, very clean and modern. The gym is small, but does the job and the pool is great especially when all the families with their little ones leave and it quiets down.
My biggest problem with the hotel was with some of the staff. The front desk, service express and housekeeping were either annoyed when contacted or not responsive. Housekeeping never left enough towels for us, didn't leave any extra toiletries and always took FOREVER to bring something to our room. Because our room would always be missing something (including a broken wine glass) we would have to call down multiple times, which I'm sure they saw as being high maintenance. On the bright side, the folks working the Valet were great and were working extremely hard in summer heat.
Overall, the hotel stay was pleasant and I had a great time while in Napa, but I expected more from a service perspective. I've been staying with SPG hotels for over 6 years (over 750 nights, Platinum, Lifetime Gold) and I've seen the full range of customer service. I would have to rate this hotel as being mediocre at best, when it comes the service received.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Napagirl1 Holiday Slows Service and Responsiveness
The Westin Verasa did not live up to my usual standards. Stayed here last month with girlfriends mid week in a 2 bedroom. It was perfect for the 3 of us and our pooches. Nice service too with lots of helpful smiles (maybe it was our cute hounds).
Have stayed here with friends or husband 3 times in the last 18 months (had 50 of our closest friends here to stay for our wedding) and raved to friends and colleagues alike.
We went back over the 4th holiday to get away and could not get service to save our life. No bathroom door on bathroom (leaning against wall). It was not fixed during our stay. My husband went downstairs 2 mornings to use the bathroom there. The light on one side of the bed was missing the turn switch. Just broken off. Moved the lamp from one side to the other side of the bed to read.
On our last day (Friday the 5th). We waited at the restaurant podium for breakfast for 7 minutes without any one walking over. Not even an "I'll be right with you". There were 3 young women setting tables but no one working the check in station. We finally walked away and went to Oxbow for breakfast instead. It was a great move and had a fantastic coffee to boot.
I was highly disappointed with the stay. For almost half the price you can have the same quality room at another Napa area hotel. Location and restaurant/outdoor amenities are clearly not as good but the room is exactly on par-updated, spotless, large, large flatscreen and all working with free internet!. As a loyal SPG person it takes a lot for me to feel this way. Talked to the manager about the situation. I really felt we shouldn't pay for our stay to be honest but we did. We don't complain about anything-usually tweet great things about our stays as we did for another Napa Valley hotel 3 weeks ago, but this was just not in typical Westin style. Will likely try again but it will take a while.

Rated 4 out of 5 by klou1222 Good Hotel But Wi-Fi Did Not Work!
Hotel was very nice, however, neither laptop nor ipad would connect in room. After talking with "tech dept" to attempt to get issue resolved, we just gave up. Also chairs in room are very narrow for adults and not comfortable. Would suggest replacing at least one chair with something more comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PrincessRonnie Great hotel, has complimentary washing machine and dryer
This hotel itself is beautiful. The platinum complimentary breakfast is wonderful. We had a 2 bedroom 2 bath suite, which is is gorgeous. The pool and the whirl pool are fantastic, taking a dip under the stars, how can one asks for more... The most unexpected feature is the complimentary washing machine and dryer. It seems like such an innocuous issue, but I hate packing for a whole week. Once I learned that the hotel offers such unusual and FANTASTIC service, I only packed for a few days. What an awesome service feature, please accept my highest compliment...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nancy72 Perfect for a 50th anniversary celebration.
We had three families plus ourselves for a week's stay at the Westin Verasa Napa. The three young families had two bedroom suites which were ideal for them. Rooms are spacious, the kitchens are fantastic (though one of the dishwashers had a broken rack). The pool was just wonderful.
The only drawback was service for poolside drinks was very slow.
We would recommend the hotel and return again. The location of the hotel was also perfect. Walking distance to Oxbow Market and all the wonderful Napa restaurants. Very peaceful setting. THANK YOU!

The Westin in Napa is one of our favorite resorts. This year again we did Napa wine tasting, golf and NASCAR. It is a great location for all these events and within walking distance to town. The two bedroom suites are large and very comfortable for two couples to share. They do need to put larger coffee pots for four people to share. A wonderful time yet again.

When I have checked in, I was asked which paper I would like to have it delivered to the room, during my 6 days stay, none was delivered. Not a big deal, you had papers in the lobby. Empty plates sat in front of the room for over 24 hours. When I checked out they were still there from the day before.

Excellent timeshare facility
I really have no complaints but I do have a few remarks: if it's a 2 bedroom then you should stock the room for as many people could occupy that room
Cleaning staff should run an inventory check after preparing the room. Ours was missing quite a few things

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bob18ch Poorly maintained facilities and untrained wait staff
I was surprised to find very poorly trained restaurant staff. Over the 4 day stay we ate inside for breakfast and dinner, patio the final time. There was general confusion on who was to handle a table as well the concept of filling water glasses to taking an order. The attitude of the poolside staff was equally poor. Second floor wallpaper was heavily damaged and as sections were replaced, the paper began to separate from the wall after 24 hrs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disgruntledguest Charging Platinum members for water in bottles
This hotel provides water bottles in the rooms, of which two are free and one is apparently not free. They claim that there was a tag on one bottle with a charge, which I certainly didn't see. When I asked for it to be reversed, I was given a long run around, the accounting office failed to call back and then eventually a front desk member said they would reverse the charge. If indeed, they are charging platinum members for water, this is a new low for SPG and certainly makes me think of staying with a chain that values its premium members, not dole out petty charges and fuss about them. Not impressive! This is the only SPG hotel that I have seen this, so, from this perspective, I can't recommend this hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pivien Wonderful hotel with great features
My husband and I stayed at this hotel with our pooch for our anniversary. The staff were so friendly and provided excellent service, even for our pooch! Matt parked our car, promptly took our luggage to our room and provided us with great suggestions on where to eat. He made us feel so welcome. We love the food at the BANK restaurant near the lobby. The gentleman who checked-in our stay was also wonderful.
Minor changes we would hope to see on our next stay:
To lessen the wait at the check-in/out counter
A tad more acknowledgement of service at the BANK bar.
Do not charge for the bottle of water in the room and offer free coffee. It really does not make any sense. We drank the water thinking it was complementary. With the price staying at this establishment we feel a free bottle of water would be a nice welcome gesture. Any snacks and beverages the hotel would like to charge the guests should be placed in the room frigerator. Just a suggestion.
Otherwise, we like this hotel very much and do look forward to staying at the Westin again soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trish41 One of the best we have experienced
My husband and I celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary at the Westin and it certainly did not disappoint. The staff was great and very helpful. They even sent up a bottle of champagne. Our room was wonderful and one of the nicest we have ever stayed in. It was huge and had a wonderful kitchen and a very large and nice bathroom. It had a large separate king bedroom and a balcony. We hated to leave and look forward to returning to this Westin in Napa.

Rated 3 out of 5 by harris44 Housekeeping
Housekeeping needs new management (not staff). On one day we left our room at 8:00 am and returned at 5:00 to prepare for the evening. Our room had not been made up yet. The enxt day we had an afternoon wedding to attend so we asked that the room be made up EARLY. We were gone for the morning and returned at 1:00 pm and of course the room was not made up.
This is unacceptable Westin service.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CROC Good Hotel needs some client focus
God Hotel, nice staff, but one disappointing experience, ordered wine off the room service list, when it arrived the price was almost 50% more than the Menu list. When I questioned this they said prices have risen and they have not changed the price list.
Very poor and would not adjusted even though they where in the wrong...

Rated 3 out of 5 by golfnmagic Nice Hotel but some issues
The hotel is beautiful. Rooms are nice. Service at restaurand is terrible. The internet is virtually non existent in the rooms. I had to go to lobby or hallway to use it. Lastly, i was appalled when I had a charge for upgrade. It is supposed to be automatic. Never was I charged before as a gold 4 star elite.

There is NO sound insulation between the rooms in this hotel. You can hear everything going on in the rooms on either side of the room you are staying in. Bring ear plugs if you want to sleep in this hotel. One day wer returned to our room at 4 PM and housekeeping had not yet serviced our room.

We had a wonderful experience, from the moment we walked thru the door until we left the staff couldn't do enough for us, and when they found out it was our 30th anniversary, they gave us a better room, brought champagne to our dinner table and sent a bottle to our room with a card signed from all staff!! Excellent

The property itself was beautiful and well maintained. They offered some additional services that put it over the top, such as daily wine tasting and free messages in the lobby. Additionally it was in a great location, just a short walk downtown.

Was disappointed with the lack of daily newspaper, lack of TOILET PAPER (had to call TWO, separate days for a simple necessity), no shower caps. Did not receive any preferential treatment, whatsoever. Room was VERY NOISY from rooms next door, poor soundproofing. Loved the wine tasting, lovely, special treat. Front bellman were very nice, warm smiles. Housekeeping was generally rather unfriendly. Surprised no turn down service, as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by geezer An Area Problem
We enjoyed our stay at the Westin Verasa. The room configuration was perfect for us -- 2 bedrooms and 2 baths with kitchen and dining area. Great location so close to Oxbow but we were 3 seniors who know Napa well and wanted to eat at restaurants a bit farther away. We prefer to go out for lunch. We should probably not be driving at all and certainly should not be driving after lunch with wine. The concierge finally got us a cab after I spent a considerable amount of time getting busy signals. Ridiculous not to have some sort of cab service easily available. The hotel could help more but won't. Something needs to be done. You would think they'd be happy to have us off the streets.

We had a wonderful stay at this Westin...9 ladies staying in two 2-bedroom suites. All of the beds were very comfortable including the fold-out bed. From the hotel, we had an easy walk to several excellent restaurants and boutiques. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again on another trip to Napa.
