We did not stay there but we did go see the Museum! It was way bigger then I thought it would be. I thought it would be only in the lobby but it wasn't. It was upstairs and then downstairs in about 5 other rooms! You have to check out the two way mirrors in the bathrooms! People can't see... More

We have been to Hotel 21C four times. I think the Museum and restaurant are a great addition to the hotel, but the rooms are seriously disappointing - think basic white walls (Ironically, almost no artwork), small and on the dark side. I could be ok with that and just categorize the rooms as your basic Marriott Courtyard, but when... More

Came to town with my extended family and had a blast cycling, eating,drinking in the Artsy Atmosphere of 21C. The rooms were so comfortable. Great to study, sleep and relax. I loved the linens and mattress.

I was checked in by a receptionist with tattooed breasts and everything improved from then on. You walk to the elevators and your image is projected on the wall in front of you. Kids love it. This hotel and its counterparts in Bentonville and Cincinnati represent one of the most imaginative bright spots in the hotel scene in the USA.... More

A Boutique hotel where we had a reasonably sized room that was however somewhat murky. The smallish bathroom was also not very well lit but did contain a low sided bath allowing easy access to the integrated shower. The staff were very helpful but the bar area was subject to air-conditioning with the temperature set far too low making it... More

The 21C hotel is great. Professional staff and nice rooms. The bar is terrific and has a nice vibe. We had breakfast via room service. It was timely and very good. It is a bit noisy at night from the street, but it is a city hotel so one should expect some noise. We definitely would stay at this hotel... More

Called from the road and added a Thursday to our Fri. and Sat. reservation. When we checked out it was $50 more for the Thursday than the already high weekend rates. We were told it would be three dollars less. Hmmm. For the price the amenities were not that great, Very low shower pressure, for us an uncomfortable bed after... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and were immensely delighted. It was so much fun to be in this hotel/contemporary museum -- just being in the hotel was the best part of our trip. Loved all the art and the quirkiness of the hotel. Our room was very spacious and well appointed -- everything worked perfectly. What a... More

Great out of the box thinking on this hotel concept. My daughter and I stayed on our way across country and we're so glad we did. Quirky and fun and interesting too. Beds were comfy. Clean and well designed rooms. Proof on Main is a must if your taste in food is as well honed as your taste in art.... More

This was a spur of the moment one night getaway. Stayed in a Luxury King Room that was perfect. Had dinner at Proof on Main, the hotel restaurant, great meal with very fresh ingredients and awesome cocktails. There is plenty to do within walking distance so we had the car parked by the valets and just stayed in the neighborhood.... More
