        Individual guest reviews

        • Good location in the center, nice hotel and old building. The staff were very helpful, room was clean and bar was great.

          This place was disgusting and bathroom was a bit dated. The breakfast at the restaurant downstairs was awful.

        • Very easy connection to airport, broken stuff and great reception venue. Lovely lobby and nice staff. Beds were clean and comfortable, food in cafe was good.

          Poor quality of rooms and not worth the money at all. Slow service, shower went straight hot water TWICE & and and my sheets were somewhat stained, and the bathroom floor was dirty. The toilet had no tank, was a new one for me.

        • Great location between the east and old decor. Good price, nice lobby and the front desk staff were helpful and friendly. Our room was very clean and the pool was excellent.

          Lots of street noise late at night and overall horrible hotel and would never go back again. The bathroom is very dated.

          The bathroom is extremely old.

        • Location is great for downtown, other hotels conferences are held and the staff is knowledgeable about the history and most seem to be college age. I booked the room not to have to drive back to tonopah after the baseball game and continental breakfast, is just that. The chef is quite good and the pool on the roof is perfect for relaxing after games.

          Poor customer service at the front desk checking in and old everything in the bedroom. Restaurant closed.

        • The location was wonderful and the historic hotel had antiques all over. The staff were great, upon entry, the room was very cool.

          Attracted by the comparatively low rate, Phoenix itself was not I expected and the water pressure was poor and the water temperature was not reliable.
