Good 7.0 From 434 reviews

Good 6.0
Small room with poor wifi, no fridge or microwave as there is hardly any space, old hotel with lot of history. Check in was slow, didnt know why she was having issues and had to ask someone else how to process while next guest came and got check in by different person while I was still waiting. Also, I was locked out 1 day and had to go down to get new key.

Ancient plumbing and paper thin walls make this a noisy place to stay. You can hear spoken words from next rooms. Gym is very poor with broken equipment. Elevator was on the fritz. Not recommended
STEPHEN, caBusiness trip
Good 6.0
My first room was only a couple feet from the roof deck of a neighbouring building, which was extremely noisy throughout the night. They also had a lot of lights on all night and my room didn't have any curtains to close, so the room was never dark. I asked the hotel twice to be moved and they reluctantly did. I was moved to the 7th floor, which was a lot quieter.

Very Good 8.0
This was a pleasant place with great service and a wonderful historic building. Unfortunately the WiFi was intermittent and not reliable so I will not be using the hotel for future business trips.

Exceptional 10.0
Great Short Stay
I was visiting Phoenix to visit family and need to stay in a hotel for one night downtown. The staff was so kind and accommodating. The location is great and in a central location of downtown. Also there is an awesome restaurant "Centrico" connect to (not owner by) the hotel. The best margaritas and tasty mexican food. I will be back
