“very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

What was good is the service was helpful, the place was clean and the rooms were tastefully done. The fitness room was clean but could benefit from some lighter weights. The pool is closed in November.
The live jazz music was set next to the bar and the bartender was loud; there was plenty of room to put the musicians away from that but the mgmt didn't seem to consider someone might actually want to listen to the music.
It was in a good location to walk to restaurants and just 2 blocks from the Museum of World Treasures so for a short stay, it is a good pick.

I travel extensively and this is one of the bests hotels I have stayed at. It is a turn of the century hotel with tons of charm located in the heart of Old Town. Old Town has tons of restaurants and bars and there is a great convention center right across the street.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms with the baconey on the 4th floor

We had a horrible experience at the Hotel at Old Town, which involved a meeting with the GM of the hotel. I waited about a month to hear back, and then my concerns were completely minimized and even misunderstood. To make matters worse, bullying tactics were used.

I cannot recommend this hotel because of the way things were handled (or not handled). If you believe in good customer service, give your hard-earned money to a company that deserves to stay in business.

The hotel is located in an old tool factory/warehouse, which adds some charm. It is modern with all the facilities you would expect.
Staff were helpful and friendly, although they were in the middle of a software upgrade when we checked in and were tearing their hair out.
Parking is free in the car park next door. The top floors are reserved hotel guests - you use your room key for access.
Room was spacious and clean. Great HDTV and free wifi.
The hotel is decorated in an old style and 1930s music plays in the elevator etc. There is a large atrium with a lounge on the ground floor. Good fitness room upstairs and there is a guest laundry.
The bar had a nice feel and the bartender made up great cocktails.
The breakfast buffet was great. Plenty of choice and helpful staff.
Good location in Old Town. Although Old Town is a bit down market compared to Bricktown in Oklahoma City. Too many sports bars. But we would stay at the hotel again.

I had never visited Wichita and frankly the city did not impress me but Old Town and the Hotel at Old Town definitely did. If it weren't a five hour drive I would spend getaway week-ends there often. If you are fortunate to be close enough for a week-end away, stay at the Hotel at Old Town. You will be impressed.
