“Great Location, excellent choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2006

Recently stayed at the Grand Central while attending a concert in Eureka Springs. We've been to Eureka several times but this was our first time at Grand Central. It was quiet, the rooms spacious, and the location perfect. Easy walk to the Auditorium and to all the great shops in Eureka Springs. It's a great old building, clean and well kept. Only wish you could book over the internet. We've stayed at the Crescent, Basin Park, and in bed & breakfasts in the past but the Grand Central will be our preferred choice for future visits.

  • Tips/Secrets — Lots of hills in Eureka Springs, could be tough walking for older visitors.

I've stayed at several hotels in downtown Eureka Springs. This is by far my favorite. It's near the lower edge of downtown, so it's not the most centrally located, but it has the most convenient parking lot of all. It's right outside the back door. Some hotels there have parking several blocks away. This is an all suites hotel and the suites are huge. They are very clean and the staff could not be friendlier. The Grand Tavern Restaurant next to the lobby is outstanding. As for location, there are steps across the street that will have you in the heart of downtown in 2 minutes. The hotel also has a spa, but I never went there. This hotel is great for those of you that want to drive to area attractions frequently. All the suites have Jacuzzi tubs with showers. They even have two bedroom, two bath suites for families or groups. There is a balcony is wraps around the back, side, and front with plenty of tables and comfortable chairs. I was alone on this trip, but you never feel alone in Eureka Springs. I will stay at Grand Central again. Check estc.net for info on this town.

Originally from the East Coast and a seasoned traveller, I would've never thought I would have a good time in Arkansas. Eureka Springs was one of the cutest little towns I have ever visited! My husband and I drove down from Kansas City, MO for a weekend trip. We stayed Grand Central Hotel which was conveniently located in the middle of the "action" (shops, restaurants). GC's building is quite beautiful. The rooms are a bit expensive though. They are a little dated as well. I know it is supposed to be "historic" but re-upolstering the couches and updating the bathrooms would be nice (for the price you are paying --- $160 for parlor suite). I received a 1 hr massage, which was wonderful and relaxing. We had dessert at the hotel restaurant. The flourless chocolate cake was to die for! Seems that everything in Eureka Springs closes really early! Still a cute little town with unique shops and good restaurants. I would recommend this hotel mainly based on the great location and guaranteed parking.

A top rate Hotel in the heart of Eureka Springs. Excellent service and a very friendly Hostess/Owner. We stayed in a deluxe suite with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Very clean rooms and a wonderful continental breakfast each day in our room.
Our Hostess even makes her own soap and shampoo for each room and also sells larger items of each.
We booked Massage treatments (Jason) was excellent. We had facials and parafin dips by Kit (excellent). It was a relaxing vacation.
