This trip marked my 4th trip to Napa, but only my 2nd to stay in The Valley and my 1st time staying in Yountville! We stayed in Calistoga last year and the other times, we hopped back and forth between SF and The Valley. (If you’re trying to decide between staying in San Francisco and Napa click here) There’s just something about staying in the Valley and Yountville was a great hub to stay. I loved staying in Calistoga and would 100% stay there again, but in my opinion you’re a lot closer to things in Yountville vs Calistoga, obviously depending what your itinerary entails.
We arrived very late at night, so we didn’t get to take in the beauty of North Block Hotel immediately. BUT I was immediately impressed. You know why? THEY HAVE HEATED BATHROOM FLOORS. My poor tired feet arrived around 3 am (another story for another day) and they were just what the doctor ordered! Not to mention, their bathroom in general was pretty amazing… big enough for us to stretch out in, had a tub AND a shower, plus cute little tea light candles ready for a relaxing evening, after a hard day of wine tasting ;)
You know what my other favorite thing besides heated floors was? THE FOOD. North Block Hotel is arranged in a way that you basically have a bunch of apartments and the cutest courtyard that opens up to the lobby on one side and the Redd Wood restaurant on the other side. The lobby is the coziest place and they have yummy tea (my fave was the lemon ginger) and coffee). Every morning starting at 8 am, Redd Wood serves complimentary breakfast to the guests of North Block. They have Bouchon pastries (get the savory scone!), famous Redd Wood potatoes, bacon, boiled eggs, mini quiche, grapefruit and yogurt. It is NOT your average continental breakfast for sure. We also dined at Redd Wood for dinner one night and had some amazing homemade pastas! We didn’t try their pizza, but if you want a great pie, I’d go to Pizzeria Tra Vigne.
Back to the beauty of North Block… it feels like a tiny European town and its charm shines through and through. Chances are that you’ll see a hot air balloon float by, as you leave your room in the morning. You may not even want to leave your room because it’s so nice, plus it has a stove top and a refrigerator so you’re pretty much set , BUT if you can move yourself, maybe head to the North Block’s pool or spa.
If you’re looking for a place to reside for your wine country getaway, we couldn’t recommend it more! Side note - we shot this post in their cute courtyard!
