We stayed in the cottages. Our rooms were 5 star. Loved the layout the pool gym. Mountains. The staff were out of their element. They were all trying to do their jobs but did not seem to have had any training. Seemed at a lose. Several occasions we ordered lunch which never arrived. 2 hour wait. Our bills were all... More

We stayed in the main Inn and it was wonderful. The room was large with king bed and a very nice bathroom. The service was top notch and the staff was friendly and helpful. We are already looking forward to returning.

We stayed for our 15 year anniversary and they were awesome. I made reservations at Madison and we arrived to rose petals on the table to help us celebrate. Dinner was wonderful and ever member of the staff was very friendly and helpful. From champagne to cookies, the stay was a wonderful memory. Thanks so much to all the staff... More

This is a beautiful property in the Highlands. Accommodations are large and comfortable with beautiful bathrooms. However the management of the property is disorganized and often rude. The best service is at the pool (love the bartenders and attendants) and at the spa (professionals are sweet and caring). Reservations for the property are complicated and not guest-centric. The food is... More

The Inn has thought of everything that you might want: luxurious linens (Frette), large bathrooms with heated floors, private outside seating area adjacent to their pool and fabulous service that pays attention to detail. In addition to the Inn, the entire town has great restaurants and shopping for those who have traveled and understand good food and stores.

In June 2015 I stayed two nights at OEI and was completely blown away by the facility, but moreover, the entire staff was second to none. Whether in the dining area, pool area, spa, or checking in, the staff was exceptionally courteous and helpful. I was traveling with an OEI regular and I was impressed by the personal touches added...

Old Edwards Inn and Spa as well as the Old Edwards Club are a great example of ownership, management, and staff putting the customers needs and experience as the hotels top priority. Yes, the check in is different because you will be sitting in an elegant old world lobby sipping on a glass of champagne provided to you while you... More

What an amazing talent the Old Edwards Inn has in the wonderful pianist simply called, "The Maestro." He brings years of performance and professionalism to Highlands, sits quietly at the grand piano and transports you to another place through his gifted fingers. Once a in-demand studio musician, he now graces the beautiful Library bar area and can play just about... More

My husband stayed here for five nights in one of their beautiful spa suites which was very roomy, fireplace and large beautiful bathroom. The staff for the most part was very nice and accommodating even though we did encounter a couple of undertrained young people. I have been to a number of spas all over the country and this is...
