      I loved the charm of the hotel. Built in the early 1900's, but still nice, clean and very conveniently located to town, food, activities and convention center.

      Close to Convention Center

      Poor quality of rooms, poor customer service at the front desk when checking in. Looks run down instead of historic.

      The location was great for downtown Phoenix and the Ball park. It was a pleasant change from the typical "box" roomed chain hotels, with a bit of style and history.

      It was small and not worth the money at all!! Our hot water didn't even work!

    • Older travelers

      the location was convenient. the staff was very helpful.

      We did not control our environment of our hotel room. t\They did not have the AC on, the window didn't open, we had a ceiling fan. Each room did not control cooling or heating. I've had bigger rooms in NYC and Europe.

      Loved the historical nature of the hotel, staff was fantastic and location in downtown Phoenix. In walking distance to the Convention Center, nice bistro downstairs and only 15 minute cab ride from the airport - loved it - I will go back.

      A little run-down. old building, old decor. lot's of peeling paint and broken stuff. The elevator is from 1920-something. But it was ok.

      Very clean, lots of pillows,tastfully decorated,well maintained, rooms don't smell

      Noise from the hall is easily heard in the rooms, elevator tends to break down regualrly.

    • Older travelers

      The staff were great and it was nice to be in a historic place. It was very convenient for the concert and staff were gracious about the valet parking.

      The elevators were not working and the stairs were steep and narrow.

      Room was in center of Phoenix near everything and walking distance to Chase Field and other attractions. I booked the room not to have to drive back to Tonopah after the baseball game.

      No complaints, Hotel is old and historic, built in 1928 with stars that visited back then was Mae West, Marylin Monroe and Clark Gable.

      The architecture was historic, beautiful

      The city view was looking at the roof of another building.

      • Average rating
    • Older travelers

      Nice staff. Location.

      The carpet in the halls and bedrooms needs replacement. The rooms were noisy because of lack of soundproofing between rooms.

      • Average rating
    • Older travelers

      Very disappointed with hotel - was very shabby and the rooms were very small. It relied on its former reputation but needed an extensive overhaul. The location was not the best either as there were very few places to get a meal. The staff were not overly interested in being helpful.
