Rated 5 out of 5 by Glegg Excellent site for visit to Napa
The only complaint I have is the unlighted mirror in the bathroom. The room lighting is rather dim and I needed to put on lipstick by feel.

The standard room was very spacious and extremely well equipped with kitchenette. The outdoor pool area was very nice and relaxing. It was a great benefit to have the wait staff come out and ask us if we needed anything.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Paulie33 lack of support
I contacted this hotel 2 weeks before my stay after I heard about the earthquake in Napa. I was told that 10 rooms were available (out of the 180). the Westin would not confirm whether they would have a room (2 reserved) for me. I asked why they did not reach out to me, and was told that I was too far down the list.
I was sent an email with a listing of hotels in Napa, and told that I should pursue an alternate place for lodging.
My past experience is that when a hotel cannot make good on a reservation, that THEY attempt to arrange alternate accommodations for the guest. This should be standard service at a WESTIN!
I was left to fend for myself at the last minute.
This is not the kind of service that I have come to expect from being a lifetime Platinum SPG member (where I stay between 40 and 50 nights/yr).

My congratulations and thanks to the staff and management for perservering through the challenges of the recent earthquake. The staff was genuinely so nice and made every effort to make our stay enjoyable. We enjoyed the facility and the people very much.
Additionally, we found the food to be very good.

We had the two bedroom suite and it overlooked the River. Great balcony and so quiet! Will stay there again next year!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lisa1035 Earthquake Water Damage Takes Toll, AVOID
So disappointed, this was a destination for us to celebrate our honeymoon. What we got was terrible noise due to water damage repair from the earthquake and management that did not live up to Westin or SPG standards. We were told to expect a little noise, what we didn't expect was saws, hammering and workers boom box. The room had numerous problems (broken phone, broken bedside lamp, very dirty), but worst was management when we checked out 2 days early. $100 off our $517 bill for an average dinner, cold (and not free) breakfast and noisy room. Sadly, we will not be returning.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MoBro16 If you have a reservation here you better find another hotel quickly
After the earthquake I called the hotel and was told that they experienced only minor damage and it would not affect the reservation. Today, a week before my trip, I was told that thehotel was not able to accomodate our party because they had only 28 of the 118 rooms available for occupancy due to earthquake damage. Everything in Napa is booked and SPG and the Westin are doing nothing to accomodate us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DesigneronLocation2014 Great service, rooms are comfortable, needs papertowels in kitchen area for coffee and clean up is my only "what's missing" comment.
Excellent. Pool area was nice, clean with excellent service.
The casual dining restaurant was easy for someone traveling alone.
I had a driving route tip that got me to my destination very quickly, as it was a work day for me and was very appreciated to get there on time and miss traffic..

We recommended this hotel for guests for the wedding of our daughter. We rented shuttle buses for the guests to and from the wedding venue in St. Helena.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the staff was quickly responsive & helpful. The younger wedding guests loved the availability of the bar until 2 am for an after-party.
The pool area was lovely and clean, with nice views.
The proximity within Napa Valley makes this a desirable location. Many of the wedding guests were from out of state, and this location was easy to and from SFO.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Susanne7 This hotel is an attractive location
The hotel is pretty, clean but just a few things to work on:
The pool is way too small and crowded, the doors going out to balcony are old and the locks are difficult to operate.
It is nice to have a balcony (porch) but the wall is too high and you can't see past it so it is annoying and didn't use it much.

This hotel exceeded our expectations. Everything was beautiful, the food was excellent, and amenities were very nice. It was a perfect location to access all of the Napa valley wineries and restaurants, and was a short 30 minute drive from Sonoma too. Definitely would recommend it to friends and plan to come back in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Virginia214 Great experience.
I complained after initially being told there was no guaranteed check-in time, and Nathan, the Manager, quickly phoned to apologize for this misinformation. The guaranteed check-in time is 3pm and our suite was actually ready early. We had left our luggage there in the morning and they were safely in the suite when we returned from our day's activity. There is only valet parking, however, our experience with the bellman retrieving our car, and my bicycle for daily rides, was excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by napa2014 valet parking
I waited a long time for my car. There were many guests waiting and I watched them all get their cars. I noticed a ticket on the ground and brought it to the attention of one of the attendants who picked it up. I still had to wait quite awhile longer. The attendant then just left my car in the driveway for me and walked away. I got no help in loading my luggage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cotsen Beautiful hotel, poor service at the restaurant
The hotel is beautiful and almost everything was great. However, the service at the restaurant located at the lobby was awful I think mainly because service is already charged, so they do nothing to earn it. I was sitting outside and as there was a bee I moved to the inside and eventhough I asked for permission NO ONE help me move my plates. They were just staring. I am really disappointed of this service.

No service at the pool….One guy came out and I ask him two times for a menu and drink list. He served some people at the pool but just totally ignored us after we ask twice…Very surprising for a Westin

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sonny85142 The Bank bar is a "real" bar... Don't miss it!
For me the best feature of the hotel was the level of service my colleagues and I received at The Bank bar. We know how to party pretty hard and Bobby & Jonathan, the key people who took care of us, were knowledgeable, fun, friendly, creative, and delivered excellent service across all dimensions. I knew I was destined for an excellent bar experience when I first arrived and saw no fewer than 11 bitters bottles on the bar then later learned that they use home-made ginger beer, home-made orgeat, and that one of the guys makes and bottles his own beverage called "The Treasury Bond". It was a cool and refreshing drink given the heat wave that was hitting Napa while I was there.
If you are looking for a great bar experience - whether you are drinking wine or are more adventurous, I highly recommend an evening at The Bank. I know for sure that I'll be back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MW2564 Great location and service
The location and staff of this hotel are exceptional. The hotel is walking distance from the Oxbow market, and the staff is very responsive to any request, and very friendly. We had to wait nearly two hours to check in due to some poor communication on the staff's part, and they compensated us by giving us breakfast coupons. The continental breakfast served mass produced pastries and average cereal. You would expect better bread and pastry in Napa. The pool is nice, but smaller than you might expect, and service there is inconsistent.
