21c? Thumbs up! The parent company, Accor, and their website and reservation system? Very bad, very frustrating. We love the 21c. We return to Bentonville every couple of years to experience the truly incredible Crystal Bridges Museum, always staying at the 21c. The 21c penguins always welcome us warmly. Inside joke for us 21c fans. Now for the Accor component. A few years ago, the 21c hotels were purchased by Accor, a large French hotel group. Accor also purchased Fairmont Hotels that I often book, and both groups were folded into the Accor system, including booking reservations on-line. Accor has the most terrible website I have experienced with any hotel chain as I quickly discovered booking rooms at the Vancouver Airport Fairmont. Last week I received a special offer by email for the 21c hotels. I clicked on the embedded link in the email that took me to the Accor reservation system. I couldn't book online at the special offer on the days I requested. The website kept offering the rooms at the full rack rate, so I called Accor reservations. The agent in Canada was not familiar with the 21c promotion and could not find any information on it or book me on the special rate. Finally she said the problem was "availability," even though rooms were available to book the rack rates. The agent also referred to blackout dates although she never told me what the blackout dates were. So after the call and out of curiosity I tried a variety of other dates in August and September. The "special" simply was not available on any of the dates I tested. All dates were blackout dates for this special offer? I called the 21c Bentonville hotel reservation department directly. The agent indicated there were some issues with the Accor system, and immediately offered to discount the rack rate for me. Well done. Some further details of the Accor website and reservation system: the dates on the Accor reservation system are shown in the European format (dd/mm/yyyy). Very French. Okay, I can deal with that. Then when I got an email receipt for my deposit that had been quoted in on the site in dollars, but the room charges and my deposit were quoted in Euros. A hotel in the heart of the United States that is, or was, part of a very American hotel brand communicating in Euros? An important takeaway here is that the staff at the hotel took care of the rate situation quickly, courteously, and professionally. Lesson learned. In the future, I will also deal directly with the hotel rather than use Accor's website.

Dear Paddock_Rat, All of us at 21c love our return guests, and we are thrilled that your recent stay was a “Thumbs Up”! I do apologize for the difficulties you experienced with the Accor reservation system, and want you to know they are working to make it more user friendly. On top of the issues you mentioned, the system also went down internationally for a day last week. Our team is very glad we were able to directly take care of everything for you, and we look forward to welcoming you in city where the Penguins roam! Emmanuel Gardinier | Area General Manager

Visited the 21c in February just to see the art, and decided to stay here on a return trip to Bentonville to visit Crystal Bridges and The Momentary. Great place to stay, excellent location, wonderful customer service. Get one of the green penguins before you leave!

We were already very happy with this hotel; thought-provoking Art, really nice spaces and rooms, amenities & shower pressure. But when we got stuck at the Crystal Bridges Museum & the shuttle wasn’t running, Adam from the front desk took it upon himself to come get us. He could have said “Try Uber” but the southern politeness is really evident here. Such friendly service. We love this hotel!

First stay at 21c, though we’ve visited the gallery before. Check in was easy. Room was large enough and king bed was very comfortable. Quiet. Very clean. Extra touches like turndown service were unexpected and chocolate in the pillow made us feel special. Exhibit was powerful.... refugees were the central subject. Breakfast at the Hive took forever, then order came in wrong (I had asked for regular egg omelette not the egg white one on the menu) and the eggwhite omelet was cold and toast was absolutely rock hard. Wait staff and Table service and coffee were both excellent. Someone purchased our breakfast for us. My husband thinks they comped it because they knew it was slow etc. Hate to complain about a free breakfast but if we had been paying we would have. We will definitely return to stay but will not eat breakfast at the hotel.
