This is our second trip to the Gadsden. Our first trip was around 2010. This trip we took for Valentine's weekend. Our main agenda was to spend our days in Bisbee. We chose the Gadsden because our pleasant first stay. We stayed in a Jacuzzi room the first time. We stayed in room 108 this trip as the gentleman that booked us suggested it being a newly renovated room. When we first saw the room we were satisfied. The room was freshly painted and seemed to be decorated in a deco period type style furnishings.This is my postiive take on the room. We also liked the artwork of the copies of postcards from 1914 as well as blueprints of the hotel framed. Those are great. My negative with this room itself was not having an outlet in bathroom. I can make-do most things but I do need to be able to do my hair some way. If there is not a way to put outlet in a bathroom there needs to be a mirror with a table so a female can plug in and style hair. At very least, a mirror within length of an outlet. I hate to be a negative critic but I really hope the owners take these things into consideration as we love old hotels and hate to see them fail and go away. . Second and probably the biggest issue with the room was the lack of hot water both days/nights. We reported this both days to front desk and both times we were told would fix it. We were even told that it was fixed and to keep waiting for the hot water-it will be there. It never was. Sad face. The reason I would not go back honestly was the lack of attention or even care for our inconvenience. We were not offered anything. At the checkout we were just rung up and for full price of the room without even more than a quick"sorry or that" Is that hospitality? I understand an old hotel,but don't make me feel my fault having problems and charge me full price for it. Bad manners in my opinion. There was 1 beautiful person I do want to address. She only gave us the name to call her as "Zero" but she took us on a lovely tour and stories of the history on Feb 15th about 1 am. She is just lovely and with a real smile.She was a "TEN" in my book so should not sell herself short by the name "Zero" We were having a hard time sleeping because of the loudness of the bar which reminds me was another issue. Too loud. Shots were being given round after 2 am? Shots meaning shots of alcohol and also shouting.What time is last call in Douglas? Loud singing and front desk did apologize but did nothing to tone it down. We were even told they had to move other people to alternative rooms because some had complained of the noise. All in all some positive but we left mostly thinking of the negative. I never mind paying for something but want to feel like I did not walk away without a shower and tired from lack of sleep from what was supposed to be a get-away. Come on Gadsden. I know you can do better. Is this new management?Sorry but this is my review of things.
