“Some Charm with Some Problems”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

A recent trip to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland led me to this historic hotel in the downtown area. In the 60's it was called The Mark Anthony, but has undergone a renovation. The facade and outer shell of the hotel is the same as it has appeared for years, but the inside has changed. There is no bar where it was originally, having been changed to a banquet room which saw no usage during my stay. The lobby has been refreshed and is beautiful. My room, however, did have a few problems. One night, the smoke detector above the bed began loudly beeping at 11 p.m. and had to be taken care of at that hour. A man was dispatched, but his ladder was too short, and although he tried to get it down, he was not able to and pulled the unit out of the ceiling, thereby taking care of the noise, but not able to fix the unit until the next day. The sink plug was broken, the shower curtain was broken off some of the hooks, and the curtain in the bedroom was also askew. The hotel is in a wonderfully central location for the theatres, is clean, and has a nice little breakfast. I felt that perhaps the routine maintence was not as well taken care of as it should have been. I would not choose the hotel again, given the wide choice of accommodation in Ashland.

Nice, luxury accommodations in the heart of town. Quiet, romantic and charming - although standard rooms are a bit small for two people. The adjoining Lark Restaurant is also a very good dinner choice. Very good service all around.

This historic hotel in downtown Ashland, OR has had a complete restoration. Our corner room was smallish and comfortable with a king bed, a small loveseat, and a desk. Everything was nicely decorated. Shops and restaurants are close on the same street. The hotel restaurant is a quality dining experience. We were there on a weeknight and it was full.

This hotel is adorable, well maintained, spotlessly clean, and one the favorite places we stayed during our 9 day journey through the Pacific Northwest. It also has a decent continental breakfast in the morning that is included with the price of the room, and it is walking distance to all the shops, theatres, restaurants, pubs and brewery in Ashland.

Unfortunately we stayed here on a Sunday night while driving from Portland, OR to San Francisco, CA. According to the reviews, people mentioned to ask for a room on the front side of the hotel because it has a better view. But on a Sunday night, be sure to ask for a room on the back side, or you will be awoken around 5am with a symphony of street sounds, including the street sweeper, the Sysco Delivery truck (which idled loudly outside our window for over an hour), and the garbage truck, all completely audible in our room on the 4th floor. Thankfully I'd gone to bed around 10pm, so at least I got a full nights sleep, as the noise went on too long to get back to sleep again!

Notes: The theaters have shows Wednesday night to Sunday afternoon, so many of the shops and restaurants take Monday and Tuesday off, and are therefore closed. Also, there are many street people around downtown, and they can get aggressive. It is best to completely ignore them, do not make eye contact, and keep walking even if they heckle and/or follow you!

Room Tip: Rooms on the front side have a better view, but stay on the back side if it's Sunday night due t...

This National Historic Registry hotel was renovated in 1998, we read, and is lovely. It truly feels like a step back in time, as another reviewer noted, but with all the modern amenities. The complimentary continental breakfast is served in a balcony mezzanine overlooking the lobby and included delicious pastries in addition to cereal, juices, yogurt and hard-boiled eggs. We were on a package that included a meal allocation, so we had lunch in the onsite restaurant called Lark's. It was fantastic! The concierge was also friendly and very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the local attractions - a fun person to meet! All in all, we'll plan to stay there again in the future.

For years, I have wanted to stay at this Historic Hotel It was built in 1925, but recently went through drastic modernization (plumbing, electrical, etc) so it still felt like a step back in time, with a very comfortable king size bed with down comforter. Our room came with champagne and chocolate, and comfortable robes for each of us. Our stay was just 2 nights, but we were treated very well. We had tickets to a play at the Oregon Shakespearean Festival, which was just 2 short blocks away. There was breakfast included each morning, a very basic cereal, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, juices, coffee and tea, but met the basic need for food. I would stay there again in a heart beat. We also had included a visit to the spa, which was just a half block away, but we didn't use that option, so cannot comment on the service there. Location is perfect, with an excellent restaurant on premises, Lark, which I will go to, even if I am not staying at the hotel. Best farm to table food I have ever had.

One night stop that we will repeat in the future. Stopped on our way to Sunny California. ASH was great value in a historic property. Our room was a bit small but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast and internet was included along with a AAA Rate that was very reasonable. Decided at the last minute to book seats for My Fair Lady at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The hotel is pet friendly and the room across had two dogs in it tha tbarked when we walked down the hall during the day, but were quiet at night. No problem and for us no issue.
