This is a nice, historic hotel right in downtown Eureka Springs. I say historic because it's on the National Register of Historic Places and it's received good maintenance over the years. I say good because although it's neat, quiet and well appointed it's lacking some of the charm that I would have expected. Painted over transom windows for example, poor paint work and obvious repairs that have taken away some of the architectural details of this hotel. And since it's nearly 110 years old it does have some quirks, like stair railings that are loose, squeaky steps and floor boards that creek and groan when you walk on them. The rooms are well appointed and the beds are very comfortable. The elevator, of which there's one has a warning sign that if you exceed six people you'll have to be rescued. Other than that, they have two great bars and one restaurant with a great breakfast buffet, included with the room. Parking is free however it is a shuttle trip away because parking in the downtown area is at a premium with either metered parking or "no parking any time" practically everywhere. The staff at the hotel is very friendly and will see to your needs. There's an onsite spa as well, which is a great place to lose the wife for a couple of hours.
Eureka Springs likes to call themselves "Little Switzerland" and it does get its share of tourists, a lot of them. Traffic in downtown Eureka during the weekends is very crowded with lots of cars, motorcycles and people going through all the shops. The shops are great too, there's a lot of them with all kinds of merchandise as well as restaurants. This is a great place to spend a lot of money so keep your credit card away from your wife if you can.
