Opened in summer 2015, this elegant 171-room property brings Tuscan flair to California’s wine region, with centuries-old grapevines, olive trees and stone fountains in the courtyard — reminiscent of a villa in the Italian countryside. The interiors, meanwhile, have a modern-day fairy-tale ambience, from the dramatic staircase and handsome stone fireplace in the lobby to the owner’s original artworks, which are found throughout the resort. Light-filled 450-square-foot rooms feature soaring 14-foot ceilings and a dreamy cloud pattern on the walls. An on-site spa and pool, complete with private cabanas perfect for drinking in the spectacular views of the California sunset, round out the delicious feeling of la dolce vita.
In the Area
Vino-loving visitors will enjoy the vast array of wineries to choose from in the Paso Robles wine region, regarded by many wine experts as one of the finest in California. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre are popular varietals in these parts, and many wineries pride themselves on their GSM blends. Recommended stops include Saxum Vineyards, whose winemaker creates his wines in his garage; Justin Vineyards & Winery, a recent nominee for Wine Enthusiast American Winery of the Year; and Tablas Creek, a Rhone-style winery that helped put Paso on the map as an emerging wine region.
How to Get There
Lovely room. Great service. Very good wine. The person serving the wine went out of her way to be helpful and generous in her pours. Very quiet but central location. GREAT REWARDS policy. Pool. Exercise room. Do not use online booking service. Call them. Their prices are cheaper.
Stayed here with a friend for a wine tasting/girls weekend. The resort is lovely. Very comfortable and well located. Room was spacious, bed was comfortable and bathroom was nice. Pool area was also very nice. Had a great massage from Julie at the Spa. Staff was very friendly. In particular, Rick and Mika at the front desk, pool staff, and gentleman that came through the pool area offering limoncello! Food was good, as well. Would stay again, and would recommend.
The 4 year old resort of 171 Rooms on 20 acre grounds has a very special boutique feel. The personal touches of eclectic artwork are visible everywhere you look. The high-end feel exudes from every surface you look at since there are only natural stone, wood and plaster everywhere. The rooms have high ceilings which adds to the spacious feel.
The entire staff is excellent, attentive, courteous and cheerful.
Be sure to try the burger or steak in the restaurant, since it is prepared on an open oak grill imparting a wonderful smoke flavor.
Serene spaces for quiet contemplation are found in unexpected places. For example, behind the pool is a dome shaped hill covered in grape vines. Paths to the top reveal olive trees and statuettes of St. Frances and Buddha with benches for reflection. It's a wonderful place to watch the sunset.
We had the pleasure of meeting the owner who was very interested in ensuring our stay was pleasurable. We also met the Operations manager- Rich, who was equally generous with his conversation and willingness to assist in any way.
It is clear to me that this is a top-tier organization that is focused as much on their employees satisfaction as they are on their guests enjoyment. It is only in this manner that the employees are engaged in the quality objectives of the management.
Loved this property. So many interesting artefacts, lovely spacious room, large beautiful bathroom, delicious dinners, sitting by the fire pits (when the private party was finally over) and lovely wines. Some staff were really professional and helpful.
The downsides were hotel policies not up to national/international or their own aspirational standards: the restaurant is separate to the hotel which made it difficult to bill your room. We had different experiences each time including being charged twice for the same meal!! No poolside service. Lots of guests by the pool but they were more concerned that no one used the empty cabanas which you had to rent. They checked these 3 times in a few hours but there was no waiter service for drinks in heat in excess of 90*F! Insufficient towels in the bathroom for the number of guests booked in the room. Inconsistencies in charging for wine tasting - told there was a charge when booking it but was pleasantly surprised to get it complimentary! But there was no need to book!
Overall, it should have been a great experience but there were too many niggles throughout our stay that spoilt our guest experience.
My entire family stayed in this property on a tour of Paso Robles. This property is located on Rt-46 going to Bakersfield behind La Quinta Hotel, unlike nice wineries in this area. The owner, like me, brings home any art object he runs into on his travel. Regrettably, he has no training on how to place them for visual effect. Regrettably, all that makes this property too expensive for what it offers. Accommodation, Service, food and facilities were adequate.
