Rated 5 out of 5 by DWMitzi Great Hotel for Napa Valley
Here for the JazzGetaway 2014. Great Location, great hotel! Only thing lacking is a sundries gift shop. Would love to see this addition to the Verasa. Already booked for 2015!

Rated 5 out of 5 by colleen0502 Fabulous Stay
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

This was the 2nd time my wife and I have stayed at this resort and we will stay there again when we return to Napa. It is a first class experience from the moment you arrive, to the daily greetings, customer service, food, pool and location.
A great place to lay your head in Napa makes every day that much nicer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by tagliacozzimd Great Hotel in Downtown Napa
I enjoyed my recent stay. The room was very spacious. The shower head was truly heavenly!!! The room was equipped with a mini-kitchen (stovetop, microwave, refrigerator, pot and pans, kitchen utensil etc). It has a good sized pool, long enough for lap swimming and an oversized hot tub/spa. Service was excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucky1 Excellent location
This hotel is all one would be asking for in Napa. Easy access, surrounded by good eating places and free shuttle services to downtown Napa.The staff are very attentive and friendly. Would definitely stay in this hotel next time I'm in Napa.
Cons: mandatory $20 amenity fee despite of not using any amenities.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Beebamom Service spotty
Check in was great, room was fine, restaurant, !a Toque was spectacular, breakfast and check out were abysmal. We were totally surprised by surly service at breakfast and bad food. We called the bell captain to pick up our luggage and after almost a half an hour ended up carrying it to reception ourselves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by smdolgos Convenient, but uncomfortable
This hotel has an excellent location to the things that bring most people to Napa Valley. Many great dinning options are within walking distance. Unfortunately, the bed in the room we had is well past its prime. It reminded us of a twenty year old bed that person slept in the exact same spot every night.

Rated 3 out of 5 by iluvmiwf Don't expect your SPG level to matter!
It was my birthday and we were originally booked at the St. Regis in San Francisco, but decided on a more relaxing environment, so we changed our reservation to the Westin Verasa. I'm a Platinum SPG member and have stayed in numerous Starwood Hotels throughout North America and abroad.
Sadly, upon checking in to the Westin Verasa hotel, I felt like I wasn't an SPG member at all, let alone, a Platinum. As a Platinum, I've not stayed at any Starwood properties where I didn't receive, at least, an upgraded room or late check. As a matter of fact, all have offered it without me even asking. When I asked the Front Desk, what type of room they were putting me in, she said "a "Traditional" room". I stated that that was a first and that I've always received upgrades at other hotels. She assured me there were NO ROOMS AVAILABLE to upgrade me into, so I took my key and headed to my "traditional room". Once in my room, I decided to contact "Service Express" to see if, in fact, there wasn't an upgrade. This person was significantly more acknowledging of my Platinum status and very kindly offered to upgrade my wife and I to a one bedroom suite. The next day when we tried to get a late check out we were told that they could only extend it until 1pm.
Granted, I understand that these are probably more common than I've experienced, but since no other SPG properties had treated me this way - I wholly expected my experience to be indicative of what I've come to expect as a Platinum member - it wasn't!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kwestlouisville Great to have a Westin in Napa!
Beautiful hotel conveniently located in old downtown area. Easy to get from Napa to Sonoma. Very friendly helpful staff. Happy hour wine tasting nice. Do not let them ship your wine though! Even though I left specific instructions, they gave the wine to another shipping company! Don't have it yet......

This is a fine hotel that I instantly disliked. The property is in good condition and service was great but I was put off by the colour scheme and our suite was rather dark - we had a kind of inverse corner room/suite. The food was great and the daily mini wine-tasting in the evening was a nice touch.

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 Traveller16 Good Experience With One Exception
Overall, the property is nice, the staff is courteous, and the main restaurant in the hotel is excellent.
However, there was one aspect of the stay that was disappointing.
We booked a two-bedroom deluxe/luxury suite for one night. We arrived at noon and were told the room had not been cleaned and that it would be a couple of hours before we could get into the room. This was fine since the advertised check-in is 3 pm, so we left and toured the local area until 5 pm. When we returned at 5 pm we were told that the room was still not ready and that we would have to wait some more. About five minutes later the desk clerk came over, said our room was ready, and handed us the keys. It turned out that the room she gave us was a standard two bedroom suite (The difference is that the couple who stayed in the second room had to go into the common area to shower, etc. The deluxe suites have en-suite baths in both rooms.). The desk clerk did this with no explanation and we were still charged the rate that we had agreed to pay for the deluxe suite.
As a long time Platinum member, I understand that things happen that can cause delays, but I do think that the hotel staff should be forthcoming about the change.

We had a very good stay at The Westin Napa. Excellent food and when we had a problem with thermostat , we had service with in minutes. The only exception was that Saturday Dec. 7 we left the room 9:30 AM and came back at 3:00 PM and the Room Service had not been done.

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.

Overall an excellent stay, with helpful friendly staff and great location. The covered valet parking and workout facilities are nice. The free WiFi didn't work well in our location in the hotel, room 3095. Also the TV didn't receive channel 2 and 3 clearly. Something wrong with the digital signal.

Still waiting for my updated bill---checked out 3 days ago. Called about dirty dishes outside our room (not ours) for 2 days. They even delivered to our room and passed it up. Several errors to our room service food order yet the restaurant dining was great! Front desk personnel were very helpful!

We live in Oakland and so it was a nice retreat for us. The hotel is walking distance to local restaurants and downtown Napa. It is also across the street from the WIne Train Station. We enjoyed our stay. The standard room was a little on the small side but was clean and the bed was comfortable.

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.

Upon arrival and check-in I was informed that we would be on the quiet section of the hotel. Instead we had screaming and running kids & teens all around us particularly on the unit upstairs. This went on from the early morning hours to the late evening.
Needless to say we were disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BostonVisitors Great staff and location
The staff was friendly and responsive. Our 1 bedroom suite was clean and well maintained.
We had a small problem with the TV in master bedroom when we arrived. We reported and it was taken care of the next morning.
The location was close to downtown but, away from the downtown distractions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by keh1 Really enjoyed our stay
This is a wonderful hotel with friendly staff and great food. Napa is a perfect place to be in late October with beautiful scenery and a fantastic climate. The hotel added so much to our experience. Our only complaint is that the hotel did not fully honor our SPG gold late checkout request.

Everything was top notch at the Westin Verasa. From the gentleman who opened my car door, to the front desk staff, to the beautiful room. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to our next visit. Also...being an SPG member has it's rewards. Thank you for the room upgrade and the cocktail!

Rated 4 out of 5 by dbrand2 Why do you not give free coffee
We (Brand couple & Sadler couple) were amazed that hotel customers (multi-day stays booked), were not provided free coffee downstairs? Seems like you would be perceived as more gracious hosts! There are many other choices for accommodations in Napa Valley & surrounding communities.

We drove so we would have our own road bikes. The location is a great starting place for many great road rides for all abilities. We are able to walk to many fine and casual dining spots for dinner. The bell staff is wonderful and remembers from year to year. A must stop in wine country
