Healdsburg CA | Completed
One of a trio of contextual wine-country inns designed by DBA, h2hotel shares amenities with the original Hotel Healdsburg and relative newcomer Harmon Guest House.
A broad glass entryway draws guests into hotel’s lobby lounge, a dynamic commons that invites mixing and lingering, with a creative custom reception desk that doubles as an intimate modern wine bar. Spoonbar—the hotel’s modern Mediterranean restaurant—shares this space, opening widely to the sidewalk toward the town’s central square. The airy dining room is dotted with freeform tables and custom lighting features crafted from reclaimed acacia.
The 36 guest rooms feature direct outdoor access via private balconies or patios. Inside, rooms are enhanced with creative local furnishings and textiles. The building’s mechanical system provides fresh air at a rate of at least 150% that of a standard hotel, and all finishings and furnishings were selected to create a healthy indoor environment.
All of the artwork in the hotel has been created by local artists and artisans, including Ned Kahn’s Spoon Fountain at the entry, which uses rainwater captured from the green roof.
The LEED Gold hotel infuses all aspects of its design, operations, and attitude with eco-consciousness and care. On the remediated site of a former gas station, the inn plays a key role in the restoration of the riparian habitat of Foss Creek, which flows through the length of the town.
