I liked this hotel. The decor is modern. The rooms were a bit on small size but nice nonetheless....with a great shower and lovely shampoo and conditioner products. Nice clean cut design. Beds were comfortable. The pool was pleasant. The lounges look attractive, and are comfortable but hard to get out of if you are over 16 since they are very low. There was only 1 umbrella open and no one really around to ask for help to open others.

Breakfast was included in the cost of the room and was quite nice. A continential breakfast is spread across the bar area. Coffee was excellent and both paper and ceramic cups are available. The granola and yogurt was gourmet....excellent, and I am very picky about granola and yogurt. There were some danish and hard boiled eggs, toast, bagels, fruit, meats, juice, ect. We visited in May and the restaurant glass walls were open which was a nice atmosphere each morning. Newspapers available.

The location was great....can walk to everything in the heart of Healdsburg.

Seltzer, Cold Water and Warm Water available from a fountain in the lobby in cups or glass bottles.....which was nice but it took me a while to figure out how to use and which type of water came out of each.

The Bar is fun and seems always full. Good drinks. My only comment to the management is that when you say you open at 5, then be ready to serve drinks at 5. Don't say at 5:15 that you can only get wine and beer because the other bar tools are still soaking. Other than that, good service at the bar.

This place kinda grew on me the longer I was there. The staff was helpful when you asked...but I might also suggest that they could be a bit more attentive....could use some training on how to act glad to see you.

Exceptional service, nice touches and enjoyed our stayed in this LEED-certified resort. Compared to other green hotels we have stayed at, this hotel had extra touches that made our stay feel luxurious and comfortable. Some of the amenities you might enjoy at H2:

1. PUBLIC bicycles to borrow during your stay
2. Sparkling water in carafes to be refilled
3. Balcony
4. Robes
5. Bath products made from essential oils and completely natural (wonderful scents like rosemary, blood orange, and lavendar)
6. Rain shower head in shower
7. Bamboo wood floors in rooms
8. Free wireless service
9. Complimentary breakfast (this should be #1) - the scones were to die for and enjoyed the Wild Goat coffee
10. Pool with spa lounges

Staff were young, helpful and energetic. We enjoyed an inventive dinner at Spoonbar which is highly underrated. Can't wait to come back!

Very clean and modern hotel with a european feel. Reservation desk and bar combined. Love the hardwood floors and walk-in shower in our rooms. The water stations were neat. Staff very helpful and friendly. We'll return.

Room Tip: Get a room with garden view.

I chose this hotel because of its environmental credentials -- I really appreciated the things like bikes for rent, water stations to fill reusable bottles, recycled materials in the construction and furnishings, etc. It's a stylish-looking hotel and in a great location in Healdsburg, a block or so from the town square. The free breakfast is tasty and had a decent variety the two days we stayed there. The bed is pretty comfortable. Be sure to check out the Hand Fan Museum on the first floor -- surprisingly interesting.

However, we were not happy with the service or with the room comfort. The uncarpeted floors meant we could hear people clomping around above us. Every door that slammed in the hallway echoed. The bathroom is terribly designed -- the shower stall is only half enclosed, so water gets everywhere. When we asked for a quiet room, the desk clerk said he was putting us in a room facing the creek, but he actually put us in a room facing a courtyard. So at least 10 other rooms were looking right into our little patio -- and our room, meaning we had to keep our blinds drawn the whole time.

Housekeeping was very poor. One of the robes was stained, so I put it on the floor when we left for the day. Instead of removing it or cleaning it, the housekeeper simply hung it back up. She also left us only one washcloth our second night. There was a big clump of hair in one corner of the shower stall. There was hair all over the room, actually, whether from a previous guest or from the housekeeper. We had ants, too -- we complained about them as soon as we arrived, and the desk clerk said that someone would take care of it, but the ants were still there the next day. At check-out, I said that we had some issues with the housekeeping, and all I got in response was, "Oh." Not, "What problems did you have?" -- not even, "Sorry." Just, "Oh."

I really wanted to like this place because I admire its efforts to conserve resources. But I just can't overlook the noise, the poor service, and the lack of cleanliness.

Room Tip: Try to get something on the top floor so you don't hear people above you.

We stayed two nights in an Eco Suite room at the H2. The location is perfect, just off the main square in Healdsburg. Our room was spacious, the amenities very "green", and the extras were those you'd expect to find in a LEED Gold green building -- bicycles available for free, continental breakfast, water bottles, computer stations and free wifi. We loved having a patio and a balcony -- the weather was perfect. We had some pool time too. On the other hand, the “chill” couches are very close to the floor, a bit uncomfortable for anyone with some height. As other reviews have mentioned, the king bed is two twins together. That works for us. The beds were "sink into the topper" which is not our normal firm bed -- but we slept well. And the idea of a Japanese inspired plunge tub in an area where water conservation is critical was beyond us. We're usually looking for a spot to sleep for the night close to our destination, but this time we made sure to enjoy this hotel as well as the surrounding area. Healdsburg is a great small town with lots of activity, plenty of shopping, wine tasting, and great food. We shared a meal with local friends at the Spoon Bar -- the Acacia tables are fabulous, the dining room open to the street, nice presentation, good food. It was a fun evening and great stay.
