My sister and I came to attend a local festival. The Horton was AMAZING! I travel extensively and prefer unique boutique hotels and this was the very best one I have ever stayed! I will be back soon as this was a very quick trip and I would like more time to explore the area and a longer stay at The Horton. We did stay on the bottom floor with no window and I was not dissatisfied at all. The room was stunning, very large and extremely comfortable. I did not feel this was a substandard room at all. The details were spot on and well thought out. This is a classy, upscale and BEAUTIFUL hotel and it is worth the trip to Boone just to stay here. Looking forward to coming back!

This was our first time staying at the hotel and it was a great experience. The room was very clean and modern and cool. I really love the vibe of the hotel. The staff was very friendly also. We have visited the roof top bar previously and it was a fun place to grab a beer and hang out. The only thing I would say is that the bar should offer one beer on draft that is a domestic. They offer several craft beers on tap and also in a can but sometimes my preference is a good domestic beer. The breakfast was good and I look forward to visiting the hotel again.

Hello from The Horton! Thank you sincerely for the review and kind comments. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Your suggestion to put some domestic beer options on tap is a great one. We've communicated this to our beer distributor and next time you visit, it's likely you will see your suggestion come to life! You are welcome back anytime, we look forward to serving you.

I second many of what other reviews say; location, staff, rooftop bar, all really great. Would add that parking accommodations are good to get in and out if needed. Access to the Hotel is really easy at any hour. Staff really makes you feel like a guest and is looking for ways to make your stay even better. If your stay is a jumping off point to do other stuff in the area you will be so happy with all of the amenities. Added bonus- everyone took COVID protocol seriously. Like old school experince of what staying in a hotel should be.
