      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 location was great for downtown Phoenix and the ball park, the soap, lotion, shampoo were of nice quality. The staff were just super and also used room service was very good.

        Central ac for the entire hotel and as mentioned, the showers are not the best.

      • The location is central, the bar at the hotel itself is very nice and the staff is knowledgeable and courteous. The rooms can be characterized as well worn retro.

        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.

      • Great location and value, loved the historical nature of the hotel, the desk service was very helpful and friendly. Oh by the way the room was clean and comfortable.

        Reception staff were very aloof and very slow, the water temperature was erratic.

      • 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.
