The lobby was beautiful lobby and bar area was decorated with a fun western theme. The food and drinks are the bar were delicious. The Saturday brunch at the 1886 was amazing, especially the omelets. The rooms were comfortable and clean. It is also at a very convenient location, right off 6th Street. Staff were friendly and helpful as well.

Hotel's Favorite
This is a slice of Texas history worth experiencing first hand! It is a great location right in the heart of downtown with no need for a car....tons to see at your doorstep....rooms and bed/bedding are very nice...comfortable. This is on the higher end of my typical price point but I felt it was well worth the cost!

We stayed to have a haunting experience. We did not receive one but hotel was nice. Breakfast was very expensive, over priced. The beds are comfortable, the service was great. Would recommend but not for a haunt.

Beautiful hotel, and great walkable location. Bar decor was cowboy cool and busy. The Grill was still closed, but breakfast and lunch cafe was very good. A lot of great restaurants within 1-2 blocks of the hotel.

In times past this hotel exceeds my every expectation. However our last trip was not special in any way. The room was nearly $500 for one night and it was barely above staying in a roadside motel. I hope for better experience from this hotel in the future.
