My girlfriend and I stayed at the Mission Inn during the Festival of Lights. The lights were so beautiful. We stayed in a Mission room at the top level. When we saw our room it looked so different. It felt medieval and very romantic. The bathroom was ok, nothing special and really small. It was fun to take a carriage... More

Pros: - Unique hotel that has lots of cool areas to wander around and take pictures of. - Several restaurants on-site to choose from - Our room was huge and even included an old fire place (non-operational, but still added to the vibe) - Pool was great - Cupcake store! Cons - Self-park is behind the hotel and a long... More

The Mission Inn is a cool historic inn. The room was clean and spacious. The staff was very friendly. Here are my negatives. I stayed in a room with a connecting door, being curious about the room, I said what's behind this door and opened it. It opened up to the next guest room, no door on their side so... More

We checked in on Sunday to this beautiful hotel. The front desk was great and upgraded our room (my birthday)….. Then we discovered that the nice restaurant isn't open on Sunday's, that the pool and jacuzzi were closed due to an earlier rain (all day, even tho the rain had passed) and that are secluded room had a very annoying...

I am Italian, the strangely named bottles in a clownish Italian make me smyle. But the hotel is perfect. Great food, nice spa, helpful personnel, nice rooms and the flair of a odd, strange, bizarre building. Perfect for couples and romance, ideal also for business travellers. And I did not mention the two perrots...

This was our first time staying at the hotel and the staff were extremely helpful and polite. Valet Parking costs $20. Location is within walking distance to the Fox Theatre and multiple restaurants. We tried to go to Mexican Restaurant within the hotel but they had a 45 minute wait so we went elsewhere. Hotel grounds are gorgeous. Our room... More

There's no doubt that the Mission Inn is historical and beautiful. Truly one of the most beautiful properties I have seen. We were there for a wedding - which was beautiful. I highly recommend the Mission Inn as a wedding venue. We stayed 3 nights. Our room as large and very nicely appointed. Unfortunately, the walls between the rooms were... More

This hotel has massive curb appeal. I can only describe the building as Mission style gone way way over the top. The service from Valet through Reservations was right on point. The elevators are small and slow, but that is what you get with an older building. The 3rd floor landing was not air conditioned and HOT, so I was... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights at the Mission Inn on a business trip. The grounds are some of the most beautiful I have seen in an American hotel. Lavish architecture, perfectly decorated with one of a kind pieces from around the world. Room was clean and well cared for. The people were all quite helpful and accommodating. If... More

This resort was beautiful and I would return. We spent only one night but enjoyed the property and the room was large and unique. I thought it was so cool how different every part of the hotel was. The only complaint was it took quite a while to have anything delivered to your room. I think it boils down to... More
