Elizabeth is adorable and makes a killer Candy Cane cocktail (it's her recipe!) and she provides amazing, down to earth service. I feel like I'm in Texas AND it's Christmas, all at once. Brava.

A unique, interesting hotel. Captures the history and Texas culture while having modernized the essentials. Great downtown location. Friendly and very professional staff. Favorite part: the elevators.
