My friend and I have driven by the Hassayampa Inn for years and always say that we need to stay to experience the Inn. Well, one of those online coupons became available for the Hassayampa Inn, it was purchased and put to use.
When we arrived and checked in, the front desk person was very nice and had a great personality. When we were assigned our room, which was up on the third floor, we were asked if we would like to ride the elevator. This was a hand operated elevator, kind of cool. So we took the elevator. What a great experience. I have done it...I'll stick to the stairs.
Walking down the hall to the room was like stepping back in time with a few of today's luxuries lining the hallway. You could just image the luxuriousness of the Inn back in the 1920s, 30s, 40s. The room was small, like so many things back in that day, but comfortable. It had two full beds and modern amenities of a flat screen TV, in-room coffee, hairdryer, etc. What else do you need? I was there to sleep, shower, relax, enjoy the public areas of the inn and go experience DT Prescott.
The room looked out onto Gurley Street with a beautiful building across the street. I was having a hard time clearly seeing that building. So I walked over to the window and there was a dirty, dusty coating on that window that must have been there for years. We had to clean the window.
The bathroom is a "water closet" but it was clean. The shower had good water pressure and the hot water did not take too long to get there. Then I looked up at the exhaust fan. It really needed to be cleaned. The filter looked like it had not been changed or cleaned in the suggested time frame imprinted on the fan. For the rest of the room, it was clean, quiet, the beds were comfortable, the AC worked well. All in all, it was a good experience.
I would like to come back and experience their Eggs Benedict and their Prime Rib that I have heard so much about.
