Rated 5 out of 5 Extremely welcoming staff at the Verasa
besides all the positive goodness, My wife and I were really impressed with how overly welcoming the staff was from the valet/bell boys the reception and the restaurants/bar was. We really liked walking distance of the location, being close to the farmers markets and 5 minutes from downtown where a good choice of the restaurants and shops where. This was the best experience we've had at Westin Verasa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FLAero52 Great hotel for Napa stay
I stayed in a 2 bedroom suite. It was fabulous. Best beds ever! Clean, nicely decorated. Great shower, robes, towels.
The gym was clean and had great equipment. I used it every day that I was there. I highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jrmew00 Fitness Facilities
This hotel has inadequate fitness facilities. Very small and not enough cardio machines. Also, do NOT get a room with pool exposure--this is a family hotel and there are many children at the pool and pool is very noisy. Finally, this hotel does not provide self parking availability and guests are compelled to use the valet service. Parking is covered in the $20 per day per room facilities charge.

We had stayed at this hotel previously and enjoyed it as much this time as the previous stay. Great location is central located to wineries and wonderful restaurants.Also enjoyed the complimentary wine tasting in the evening and the free shuttle to downtown. The staff are so friendly and helpful.
The only downside is the $10 parking and $20 resort fee. Also the internet did not work in our room.

This new property is beautifully designed and has great amenities, plus it's dog friendly! I'll definitely stay at this Westin again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCSTL Hotel is beautiful and staff is amazing
Front desk staff was very kind...upgraded our room since it we were on our way to Tahoe to get married. It was just one of those things where they didn't have to do it...we didn't expect it...but it made it very memorable! The valet guys even offered to give us pointers on what to see and where all the good local spots were. We are now hooked on Starwood!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jimsept2012 Service charge policy
The policy of adding a service charge to every bill, irrespective of whether the customer agrees with the adequacy of the delivered service or not has a negative effect...it means that *some* staff don't make the effort, such as the humourless surly waiter in La Toque (called Tom), while other staff were delightful and one would happliy give them more than the mandatory service charge.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ScottsdaleDan very expensive, subpar service
I stayed at this hotel over the weekend of 8/10 2013. i found the property staff interested in anything except working. Numerous problems with my resevations. When asked to provide a list of organic wineries, the concierge could only come up wiht one rahter than listing the many i had already tried. for the money, i would give this spot a miss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kam35rdm Great stay from start to check-out!!!
We selected Napa and this hotel as our first stop of our two week trip to Napa/Sonoma to celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary. From our arrival at the front doors, to the time we checked out, the entire staff was wonderful. David one of the valet was super great with providing wonderful suggestions and tips on things to do, restaruants and place to pick up some groceries. As we were there for a week we asked for a room with a refrigator and the very next day we received a room upgrade with a kitchenette. All the staff were super great from the valets that were fast, courteous to housekeeping that provided everything needed during our stay. The hotel was well kept, modern and updated. The rooms were clean, and the furniture and decor were pristine. We enjoyed the wine and hors d'ouerves served by local wineries. Dinner we had one night at the on-site hotel was very good and the wait staff we terrific.

This was the perfect location for visiting Napa. You can walk to downtown and also to the wine train. Easy to reach hundreds of wineries from either Hwy 29 or Silverado.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Suzi12 Great location
Great location to the new revitalized Downtown Napa Waterfront. Within walking distance to shopping and excellent restuarants. We had the 2B/2B corner suite and it was great for 2 couples sharing the unit. If afforded privacy yet had common areas for enjoying a glass of wine and conversation. Also, the deck overlooking the river was a real plus. Very tranquil and wonderful setting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rolllsk22 Westin Napa
Hotel is good. The restaurant is good not great as advertised. Also, small portions, expensive and a mandatory 18% gratuity added for all restaurant and bar services. Don't like that choice being made for me. The Oxbow market is a short walk down the street. We will go there for breakfast, lunch or dinner next time. Great choices to eat there and save the forced 18% service charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nesp This hotel has very friendly staff
My nephew Derwin and his wife Tanya gave us a gift certificate for a one night stay for our 50th wedding anniversary. When we checked in, the front desk clerk told us our room was upgraded. Lo and behold, they gave us a suite complete with kitchenette and a cold bottle of champagne was waiting for us! The view from our room was calming and the beddings were very clean and soothing!

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Robert350 Lovely property, bad dates..
I was looking for a weekend getaway from another long term stay property in Nor Cal. The Westin is a lovely property in the historic part of old Napa. The location is a great starting point for those looking for a more corporate retreat rather than the "Inn" or "B and B" type of lodging in the valley. I used points for my stay and unfortunately, as the property was over-sold was given a room that was entirely way too small for me. I decided to stay at another property as it was just not comfortable. Overall I think this property has VERY large rooms, so do not base your decisions solely on my experience. Generally as a Platinum member I am spoiled and receive a nice upgraded room even when using points. In any case, what should be commended here is the AWESOME staff..to the valets, the front desk, and the management team. Everyone is service oriented and they authentically want to go out of their way for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WineLover Needs some Improvements
Beautiful hotel located in a great spot in downtown Napa. A few short comings dampened our complete enjoyment. On our first day we ate the 'Express' Lunch at the Bank Cafe. Service was anything but Express. Later in the week trying to grab and pay for self service coffee at the Bank Cafe also was anything but Express. Trying to find someone to pay was a challenge and the way it was laid out is simply very difficult. Overall food was good at Bank just not Express as advertised and we all found the staff there missing on service. Only other negative comment is the size of the fitness room given the size of the hotel - it is tiny and every morning was packed. Front desk was also a bit slow on check-in. Only one person working the desk and also working the conceirge desk meant a long check-in. Downstairs needs to improve their customer service and if the fitness center was bigger this would be an outstanding hotel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by EastCoast Very disappointing
I have stayed at Westin properties throughout the world and this was one of the most disappointing hotels that I can remember. The hotel and staff failed to get many things right in terms of responsiveness to service requests, room preparation, platinum member recognition, etc. While the hotel was decent, it certainly did not meet expectations. Avoid the hotel if possible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RobbinH How do you get a nicer room?
This is the second time we have stayed at the hotel, both times on a sold out weekend. Even though we made reservations months in advance, both stays were in tiny rooms. As a gold member, I am often upgraded to a nicer room and this was not possible either time. The hotel is gorgeous and the staff very nice but we were in very small rooms, how do you avoid this next time?

Rated 4 out of 5 by bkwats Why no mention of "shower only"?
We were very disappointed when we got to our room and found it only had a shower with no bathtub. This would not happen if our reservation confirmation had shown that. Our confirmation shows "heavenly bed and bath" which led us to believe there would be a tub. We feel very strongly that you should have the words "shower only" on every confirmation for your standard rooms.

Wonderful experience! La Toque was amazing. Andrew with the bell desk is the best. After bringing our luggage to the room he went and filled our ice bucket. Gloria at the spa is wonderful and her facials are great. The only bad part of the stay was the service at the bar was slow non attentive and left a little to be desired. Other then the bar experience it was perfect.

New. Beautiful. Laid out very nice. Great location for Napa Valley, staff could not provide a comp shuttle to dinner so they called a cab and paid for it along with tip to driver - we didn't have to do anything but enjoy ourselves. P.S. if you enjoy a day in Napa or Sonoma, take advantage of the comp shuttle for dinner - you could avoid a meeting with CHIPs in town!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Regretful Wireless and rooms cleaning
Two aspects made our stay disappointing. The wireless in our room was not very good and the room was cleaned very late in the day. In the latter case went to ask the front desk and was told the standard is that it be done by 5:30 pm. Not certain that this type of standard works for us. Otherwise the staff was very pleasant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tvettel Absolutely perfect property.
The Westin Verasa was a wonderful surprise for our couples trip to wine country. The facilities are first class and the staf has obviously been well-trained. As a guest, I felt the staff "left us alone" at all the right times and "attended to our needs" right on schedule. I love the happy hour, the massages, the fitness room, the fire pit and the pool area. Bravo!

Rated 2 out of 5 housekeeping leaves MUCH to be desired
the location was ok, room was nice, food was good...but housekeeping was terrible. spent three days and had our room cleaned only once....even though we made multiple calls asking for assistance. eventually had to roam the halls looking for a cart to get towels.
Not what we expected when we embarked on a family christmas with our son who just returned form the army.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mcekay Horrible Odor
Stayed in room 2068 this past Saturday - where my wife and I experienced a horrible sewage/garbage odor. After reporting the issue to the front desk - the hotel's solution was to send a maid into the hallway and empty a full bottle of lysol. It didn't help. A little ridiculous considering we paid $575/night for the hotel room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by QJoe Avoid if there's a wedding...
I spent almost 400 dollars for one Saturday night in this hotel, (almost impossible to get a night with points). Bottom line: I would not recommend staying here if there is a wedding or event happening.
No Platinum upgrade. Odd room with a half kitchen opening onto a courtyard, where, a disco and DJ played until 11pm, despite being told that the music would be over at 10pm. Then the associated rowdiness of the crowd and cleanup crew.
This was the message sent to me upon departure:
"We hope your visit left you feeling well rested, well nourished and well cared for. We look forward to seeing you again the next time you're in Napa."
Unfortunately it didn't and they won't. Front desk personnel didn't seem to really care when this was mentioned, (by me and other guests checking out at the same time).
Highlight of the trip was the very helpful bellman/valet David who could not have done more to help us out.
Won't be back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MSPpete 1 Night at Westin Napa
I have stayed at this hotel once before and that stay was marred by inconsistent staff service.
Room was one bedroom/two bath with kitchen.
This time the staff was helpful and efficient. My only two notes are:
1. Wait at front desk was 10+ minutes to check in.
2. Shower was moldy and needed new calking in MBR bath. I mentioned this at checkout and it was noted.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Yeow Just ok
The room was smaller than the regular Westin rooms I have stayed in. The heavenly bed was still top notched. There was no tub, just a shower in the bathroom, which is unusual for a 5 star property.
We were not advised of the resort fee and what amenities the fee covered when we checked in. It was nice that they took it off when I mentioned it at check out.
