“Historic Hotel Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

My husband and I visited Prescott for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We wanted to stay in a historic hotel on Gurley Street so we picked the Hotel St. Michael. The hotel is very cute, quaint and historic. The outside of the hotel is beautiful with the old brick. We received a room on the second floor with our window facing Gurley Street. This was an issue for us as it was very noisy...not necessarily traffic noisy as much as it was people noisy. There was a bar/pub right across the street from our room so it was noisy all hours of the day and night. The room was...well, historic. TV was outdated (not that we used it much), carpet was old, furnishings were old and the bathroom reminded me of an old mobile home bathroom. Just enough room for one person. I knew this place was outdated when I noticed an electrical outlet attached to the light fixture in the bathroom. Our overall stay here was nice and the staff were all extremely friendly. If you're looking for historic, this is it! It was by no means the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in but if you're looking for a historic visit to a hotel, I would pick this one. Maybe request a room away from Gurley Street or Whiskey Row if you're looking for some peace and quiet.

The only place I would stay while visiting Prescott. Love this historic hotel in downtown Prescott,like the rooms that face the plaza as we like to be in the center of the action on Whiskey Row. The rooms are the perfect size for a nice weekend get away and are always clean. The bathroom is quaint and clean and the corridors are always kept neat & clean. We love the historic charm of the old fashioned elevator, it adds the character that we expect when visiting the hotel. The staff is absolutely AMAZING, very friendly, and accommodating. The rates are reasonable for a hotel right on Whiskey Row. The hotel provides a discounted breakfast coupon at their adjoining Bistro St. Michael.

Room Tip: Do not get a room that backs up to Matt's Saloon

My husband and I have stayed here every time we come to Prescott starting way back in 1994, and while yes I agree some updates would be nice such as the TV's and the beds including linens, We wouldn't stay anywhere else. The staff is always so accommodating and friendly especially on this last trip the 2 gentlemen working when we arrived and whom we spoke to over the course of our stay were great even going so far as to keep me company while I waited for my husband to run to the parking garage. I’m sorry to say that I can't remember their names to pat them on the back in this forum I will thank them again in person. We stayed recently on May 19 and already have booked for Labor Day weekend and can't wait. Again my favorite and only place to stay in Prescott!!

Hotel St. Michael is our favorite place to stay in Prescott. The hotel is historic, quaint and full of charm! We personally like the rooms that face the plaza as we like to be in the center of the action on Whiskey Row. The rooms are the perfect size for a nice weekend get away and are always clean. The bathroom is quaint and clean and the corridors are always kept neat & clean. We love the historic charm of the old fashioned elevator, it adds the character that we expect when visiting the hotel. The staff is absolutely AMAZING, very friendly, and accommodating. The rates are reasonable for a hotel right on Whiskey Row. The hotel provides a free FULL breakfast at their adjoining Bistro St. Michael. The breakfast is delicious, the portions are plenty and the service is great. It is very rare to find a hotel that includes a free FULL (eggs, bacon, potatoes, toast, coffee) breakfast with each night's stay. We love how close the hotel is in location to all of the shopping, restaurants & bars on Whiskey Row. Everything is in walking distance. We look forward to our weekends in Prescott, more specifically at Hotel St. Michael. We park the car & don't drive again until we check out. If you are looking for historic charm & quaintness then I highly recommend Hotel St. Michael. We won't stay anywhere else when we visit Prescott!

If you were to base a review solely on the staff, breakfast and location, this would have been a five star experience - HOWEVER...one does need (a bit) of sleep, a clean room, and a comfy bed - none of which are delivered by the Hotel St. Michael.

Yes (!) It's a cool old building, and honestly, the location is fabulous DURING THE DAY - right on the square. Great for walking to everything wonderful Prescott has to offer.

No (!) The evenings / nights (from dark until about four am) are LOUD! Between the motorcycles, police sirens, bars (and drunk patrons of same) there isn't much to recommend a stay. Having said that, I am no longer the "party person" I once could have been, and perhaps might have enjoyed it more at that age.

No (!) Our room. We faced the square, so nice little view, but it felt neglected and dirty - you didnt want to take your shoes off and walk barefoot on the carpet ...or sit on top of the bedspread (even clothed)...

No (!) The bathroom was tiny, dark, (one of the two lightbulbs over the mirror was out) and the shower was not a pretty sight (although it's not lit, perhaps happily)...the soapdish in the shower was, well, nasty, and, sadly, the shower clogged the last evening we were there, and remained clogged the next morning.

Yes (!) Breakfast (included) was wonderful, in the cool little bistro attached to the hotel. And the hotel and wait staff couldnt have been nicer. Both big pluses.

Final opinion? A getaway doesnt have to be luxurious to be special, but for a "romantic" weekend, or even a weekend with friends, this would have to be a miss.

Room Tip: If you go, ask for an interior room with no walls attached to those the hotel shares with a bar, or...

Hotel St. Michael is a historic building with some charm. It's located on the famous Prescott Whiskey Row. The rooms are good size but the beds are in dire need of replacement. The rooms also lack a small fridge. There was no alarm clock and the TV was an old/antiquated CRT type that had poor picture quality. The complimentary breakfast was good but you basically have only one choice or a $5 credit off any other menu item. The staff was very nice and eager to help. All-in-all I would rate the Hotel St, Michael as average at best. Probably will not stay there again. I should add that if you have allergies beware. Whenever I was in the room my allergies exploded. I'm sure it was from the carpet.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of Gurly street. If you have a room on the whiskey row side you probably won...

Living in Prescot uk we just had to stay one night! The hotel was extremely dated and rooms basic but clean
Corridors reminded us of the tower of terror ride in Disney lol, but it had a clean bathroom and comfortable bed just not luxury!
Breakfast was included in the price and the restaurant was the opposite of the rooms, quite fancy and was busy as non guests could purchase breakfast so the place was busy which is always a good sign
The breakfast itself was lovely, by far the best we had. Hot food or continental with unlimited tea or coffee with large portions.
Attached to the hotel is a. Small indoor shopping centre with cobbled streets in keeping with the old world theme of the hotel.
Parking was in the street right outside the hotel and was free from 5 pm until 10 am, so no problem
Great location right on whiskey row right in the centre of town!
