  • Within walking distance of acclaimed restaurants
  • Intimate spa with personalized treatments and a signature lavender saltwater pool

Cons

  • "Gratuity" fee for services provided by the staff

Bottom Line

Housed in a tiny Mediterranean-style complex, North Block Hotel is well suited for a romantic getaway, with 20 cozy, elegant rooms with wonderful beds, espresso machines, and luxurious bathrooms with a separate six-foot bathtub and walk-in shower; an intimate and upscale spa with personalized treatments; and a pleasant swimming pool with lounge chairs and a Jacuzzi. Redd Wood, the hotel's restaurant (with Michelin-starred Chef Richard Reddington at the helm) offers Italian-inspired cuisine. However, most rooms are small for the price. But the location -- within walking distance of acclaimed restaurants in Yountville such as The French Laundry, and a short drive to wineries, golfing, and boutique -- is excellent.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In quaint Yountville, within walking distance to fine dining and boutiques, and a short drive from outstanding wineries

North Block Hotel is conveniently located off Highway 29 in Yountville, on the same street as acclaimed restaurants such as The French Laundry, Redd, and Bouchon. There are a couple of tiny art galleries within walking distance, and a bunch of excellent wineries a short drive away.

Napa Valley is one of the world's best wine-growing regions, with hundreds of wineries sprawling over rolling hills. Napa Valley, unlike its neighbor Sonoma Valley, can occasionally feel a little touristy (it's not uncommon to see a tour bus parked at a winery), and it also feels geared toward visitors with cash to spend -- so those with lighter wallets might feel a little out of place. The beauty of the valley is striking at any time of the year, but especially during the harvest season (September and October) and spring. It can get busy during the summer months, so expect crowds.

  • 1-hour drive to Oakland Airport
  • 85-minute drive to San Francisco International Airport
  • 5-to 15-minute walk to top-notch dining
  • 8-minute drive to Rutherford, home to world-class wineries
  • 14-minute drive to scenic St. Helena
  • 13-minute drive to downtown Napa
  • 20-minute drive to Silverado Country Club
