“Choose this hotel without thinking.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

When we arrived to San Salvador we were a bit worried as nobody was speaking English (and we can't speak Spanish). However, when we checked in this hotel, we met Gretchen and all our concerns are gone. Hotel is nice, location and breakfast is good but it is really all about Gretchen. She arranged our bus tickets, helped us on bank, showed all the places to visit. She and her husband are like friends. Try this hotel and reward this attitude. You won't be disappointed, promise.

This was our second year staying at Morrison Hotel de la Escalon. We love it! Gretchen, Camilo and their staff treated us like family; it was sad to leave them. Breakfast, included with the room, is delicious. On our final night, Camilo made our group incredible homemade pizzas with a variety of toppings. Our room was clean and comfortable and included free WiFi. Doris' engaging smile greeted us each day and attended to our every need. The hotel is very secure and the guards are friendly and helpful. Thank you for our wonderful stay, we hope to see you next year! A and T

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

My mother and I were visiting relatives in ES and needed quick lodgings for a week. We were very lucky to remember the recommendation of our bank manager for the Morrison.

I have never before been welcomed and greeted so warmly by hotel staff. The double room was a bit dark, but clean, comfortable, cozy and quiet. The beds were large and comfortable, so we slept soundly each night. The free WiFi signal was strong once I located the power outlets. The TV in our room was a bit old and the volume had be turned up to compete with the A/C, so we read books instead. Shower water pressure was good and the water was hot. My mom particularly liked the provided coconut soap and mango shampoo and when she mentioned it to the staff, they gave her a bunch of it to take home with her. Definitely a nice and appreciated touch.

The complimentary breakfast was authentic and delicious and served by friendly staff. They were patient and helpful with my halting Spanish.

After a day, I was walking the neighborhood and visiting local stores. I was disappointed by a few things (size of the pool/lack of a bar) but the warmth of the people here outweigh those concerns. Just as we were truly settled, it was time to leave. I would have loved to stay longer. Dora at the front desk told my mom that even though she had only been there a short time, she had grown quite fond of her. It was a very enjoyable stay and we would stay here again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended and a great value!

Room Tip: We received a room on the first floor to cut down on the number of stairs for my elderly mom. Remem...

We loved the Morrison Hotel de La Escalon for it's value and charm. The choices for breakfast were very good and included in the price. Family owned with very good service and cleanliness.
Gretchen helped us with sightseeing and recommended restaurants. Free computer for usage in the lobby. Very relaxing.

This place was great and from the beggining, I felt right at home. The staff were friendly, funny, and humble. The breakfast in the morning is amazing. Twice I had my clothes washed and they would fold everything nicely and have it ready for me in no time. The security guard was great and was always looking to help and answer any questions. When I come back to El Salvador, this is where I will stay!- Eli Flores

I am totally satisfied with this hotel, De la Escalon. What stuck out the most was definitely the service. The employees were very friendly and accommodating. My hotel room was very clean and well-arranged. The hotel is in a perfect setting and within walking distance of a lot of sites in San Salvador, so I could easily access to like everywhere such as restaurants, shopping centers, and so. I wish to go this hotel again and again. Thanks for providing me the great service.
