Warm place, friendly staff, beautiful location and décoration, very authentic. Good free wifi and really good gift Shop!! One of our favorite (if not our favorite) hotel in our Texan Road-trip. We booked the James Dean room which is quite small but really cute and quiet, and with the history, that makes up for it. Try El Paisano's restaurant: the... More

The far away town of Marfa in West Texas hosted the crew of the movie "Giant" (1956). They all stayed in the hotel Paisano. The hotel rooms could use some renovations but the atmoshere of being away from it all makes up for it. The bar and courtyard is the meeting point. Great Margaritas. Marfa is known for the art...

Scheduled as our sojourn South of the Interstate enroute to Austin from Phoenix this hotel was exactly what I hoped for, and more. Classic, historical ambiance is built into its stately architecture. We arrived without any reservation in a driving West Texas rainstorm which was flooding the streets. Parking is on the street where an active ankle-deep stream had formed.... More

Historic hotel with lovely amenities. Pet friendly, accommodating staff, great location. Great central location for day trips to Big Bend. Jett Grill offers a delicious variety for dinner, it is unfortunate they are not open for breakfast or lunch.

Beautiful historical hotel in the heart of Marfa. The rooms were very large and ours had 2 bathrooms! The building was gorgeous and the restaurant, the Jett grill, had wonderful food. Try to see or stay in the rooms that were used by James Dean or Liz while filming Giant!

We stayed in a queen bed room with private bathroom, French door balcony looking out into courtyard. It was so nice, so friendly, welcomed our dogs, and was quiet and super comfortable! Love the history of this place. Marfa is a cool small town. Worth the drive from Austin!

I cannot praise this hotel enough! The lobby is gorgeous with fantastic furniture, lovely rooms and wonderful staff. Our room was super romantic and had 2 bathrooms! If Marfa weren't so exciting, I would have just stayed in the room. The outdoor patio is absolutely lovely. There is a pool area (not much sun, though). And the location is unbeatable.

Just recently got to stay at this wonderful historic hotel. Beautiful, and really nice rooms. Restaurant was great!! Try the jalapeño Margarita. Food was excellent, make sure you stop at the shops, and check out the movie Giant memorabilia room!!

This was a cute place! We stayed in one of the historic rooms and loved it. The bathrooms are a little smaller than the more modern hotels, but they were not large when it was built. I would love to go back and stay in one of the enlarged rooms! Restaurant attached to hotel, very nice. Great sitting area outside.... More
