I thought it was a great place to stay. Staff was friendly and accommodating, room was comfortable, and the breakfast was outstanding! Price was right and there was not one thing I didn't like. I'll go back in a heartbeat

The staff tries hard but it doesn't overcome the negatives about this overpriced hotel. The decor attempts to be sophisticated and posh- "classic" paintings and sculptures, furniture from a bygone period, etc. It fails and comes across as dilapidated and outmoded. Checking in takes ages. The best word I can think of for the bed is squishy. It's definitely not... More

I wouldn't have stayed here based upon the other reviews, but the reservation was made by my employer. Everything the other reviewers said was correct: The beds are atrocious. The mattresses (and there are in fact 2!) are those old foam cushions from summer camp - they are covered with white and blue striped fabric, and are only 5 inches... More

This hotel is nicely located and priced well, especially for the area. The breakfasts offer a nice selection to please most palates. The room itself was quite large, but the bathroom was rather grubby and didn't feel like it had been thoroughly cleaned in quite some time. The carpet in the room was stained and equally dirty. The sheets on... More

I'm in love with this hotel! Booked it sight-unseen based on so many positive recommendations. It's a small hotel, just two stories in a nondescript area. The hotel lobby is small and funky, with odd old reproductions of art and statues. We're thinking "whaaat?" Room 228 is HUGE. It could easily hold two king beds. The bathroom is all marble... More

I was looking for an inexpensive small hotel, but one that was not in a risky neighborhood or one with rooms that are falling apart. The Bristol Hotel was a nice find for me.

Staff was helpful and polite, rooms were spacious and clean and the breakfast was good. Everything was delicious and hot. We even had some family that lived in the area come over and share it with us and no one said anything.

As many have already said - the first impression is rather grand with the ornate decorations, large spaces, marble, statues, etc. I liked the dining room set up - very homey but we must have always arrived when the hot menu items were almost gone. My husband always hopes for a good workout room - poor. As others have said... More
