We came to Alpine to visit a friend that lived there, so we already knew that we wanted to try one night at the Holland Hotel during our visit. My husband and I try to only stay in smaller boutique hotels when we go on trips and I would stay one fared pretty high on our list.
As one of the other below reviews mentions, the free drink tickets were a nice surprise at check in and the staff was helpful and professional, each time we dealt with them. Kevin was the one I spoke with on the phone a few times. One criticism would be that a return phone call to my voicemail would have been nice when I was making a reservation- I ended up making it online and they may have realized that my name on the online reservation matched the one on the message.
We originally had a reservation made for Loft #4, but we changed it to a King hotel room that became available. I am glad that we did, after reading the below review of loft #4.
On the night that we stayed, there was a Quicenera that was taking place in the hotel ballroom/lobby, so we did not have the opportunity to enjoy much of the common space downstairs. However, we did have drinks at the Century Bar & Grill (located downstair in the hotel) prior to the start of the event. The drinks were nicely made, but the only food we had was the "homemade" chips and salsa. The chips were cold and stale and the salsa cold.....didn't really entice us to have dinner there, so we left and ate at a nearby resturant called the Reata. The food at the Reata was excellent!
The King room that we stayed in was overall pretty nice. Very Clean, except for the bathtub which looked like it may need refinishing. There was adequate space for an older hotel and the wood furnishings were very nice. There were 2 free water bottles available, in-room coffee and earplugs (for the passing train, which didn't bother us at all). Not sure how often the nice, white down comforter at the foot of the bed is washed- but, it could use a cleaning.
