“Loved this hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

I was looking for a hotel that was quaint with a lot of character. This hotel delivered. The location is fantastic and the staff was great. I felt at home just walking in. I loved sitting on the front porch drinking tea (there is a bar in the hotel too). Everything you need is in walking distance. This will be my go to place when I visit Prescott.

Room Tip: The hotel is an old building so the rooms are small but they have alot of character, very clean and...

We attended the recent Bluegrass Festival in Prescott, Az. We opted to stay Sat. night at Hotel Vendome.
So happy we did! Lovely older property, quiet and the owners and managers couldn't be nicer!
Barbie remembered us from our last visit and recommended just the perfect room for us when I called for a reservation. Vendome has a quaint wine/beer (with extensive selection) bar in their lobby. Jordan, the bartender encourages you to take advantage of the very enjoyable space(s) to relax: front living room/lobby, the old fashioned front porch, patio or veranda upstairs. All spaces are comfortable and you may bring whatever beverage you purchase there to enjoy, Eric and Stephanie are the innkeepers/owners and are friendly hosts. Vendome is perfect for Prescott- close enough to walk to all the downtown activities, but off the beaten track, so you can relax in peace. My favorite place in Prescott! You will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: We stayed in the back on floor level once and in the front upstairs once. Both were quiet and excel...

was in prescott under what turned out to be difficult circumstances but this hotel was friendly and comfortable. sp glad we couldnt get a room at the bigger more well known hotel on the square. would not stay anyplace else in prescott unless we should ever manage to move there someday. this is really an awesome hotel - bar, porch,yummy breakfast, rooms with character, great location, friendly people. love it.

My husband, son, daughter-in-law and myself just returned from a trip to Prescott, Arizona for the Fourth of July weekend. We stayed at the Hotel Vendome and we decided that it would be where we would stay again if we are lucky enough to be back in Prescott. The location was within walking distance to everything downtown and the owners made us feel like we were at home. The rooms were cozy, comfortable and very clean and the veranda was a great place to relax and chat. The continental breakfasts were just right and the waffles on the weekend were delicious! And, we had front row seats to the parade. It doesn't get any better than that!

From the neighborhood that embraces it to the lobby, the halls, and the rooms there is a sense that time has stood still at the historic Hotel Vendome mere blocks from the courthouse square and historic Whiskey Row. Only the thin veneer of modern amenities intrudes upon the illusion.

Room Tip: Upstairs but on the south side of the building away from the square is best.

We recently spent a few nights at the Hotel Vendome. While old(part of its charm) we found it to be comfortable and clean. We slept great in the bed thanks to the foam mattress topper. While small the rooms are have everything you need and the "vintage" bathroom was spacious enough to not feel cramped while using it.

Location is great as well and we never had trouble finding parking.

Hotel amenities are nice given the type of hotel and the age of the property. The Harney and Sons tea was a well appreciated touch. As a nitpick the bathtowels are thin and cheap....Costco sells decent fluffy bath towels that are pretty inexpensive perhaps the owners can consider gradually upgrading over time from the lousy Motel 6 type towels we found in the bathroom.

The porches were nice to sit on in the evening and morning. The bar can get loud so if noise bothers you this is something to consider before staying here. While we didn't have trouble overnight with noise, we didn't necessarily enjoy the bar noise while relaxing with a book on the upstairs porch earlier in the evening. Again, more something to consider than a nuisance per se since there are signs about quiet hours and that the mgmt will be pro-active about noise during these times if needed(again we had no issues during quiet hours.

Another thing to consider is apparently smoking is allowed on the side patio...with our window to our room open in the evening we had smoke drifting up into the room and had to close the window. Wish the entire property were mandated non smoking(the inside is) to avoid this. Ask for a room on the other side of the building to avoid the problem maybe. (The smoking on the patio thing is weird anyhow since the hotel info paper they hand when checking in says no smoking but there were ashtrays out on the side patio while we were staying there and people were using them)

Breakfast while basic met our needs well(cereal, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, english muffins)..however waffles on Saturdays appears to require knowledge of a secret handshake to obtain one. We witnessed people eating them, saw syrup on the bar, but saw no sign of how to obtain one. While we stood there discussing it, the employee of the hotel was behind the bar(where breakfast was set up), cleaning glasses and mugs and never acknowledge us or our conversation. Strange. Oatmeal is healthier anyhow so we enjoyed some of that instead but still very odd and poor customer service. She seemed very unfriendly and never did acknowledge us the entire morning. Other staff seemed friendly during our check in and stay however. Missing out on a waffles certainly isn't the end of the world but some sort of signage that they are available and how to get one or perhaps an offer when your guests are standing right in front of you deciding what to eat? From a customer service perspective the experience, just prior to our check out no less, left a poor impression on us.

We paid $99/night and for that price found the hotel to be a decent value for Prescott.
