The Basin Park is a destination everytime we travel to Eureka Springs. It's the history of the hotel, the casual, but attentive, quick staff, and comfortable period rooms that make ths hotel great. Visitors stroll from the street to venture to the balcony Basin Park Restaurant that is open in both the winter and summer. The restaurant has live music and great causal dining. I leave my husband and shop at times! Since the hotel is in the heart of Eureka Springs, it is definitely convenient. Shuttle service will be ready to take you to different sites, but there is so much to see and do, I've never been on one of the shuttles. Instead, we simply drive. We were last there in October and the Basin Park is always at the top of our list. Be prepared for steep hills, if you "explore" Eureka Springs!
