If you were to base a review solely on the staff, breakfast and location, this would have been a five star experience - HOWEVER...one does need (a bit) of sleep, a clean room, and a comfy bed - none of which are delivered by the Hotel St. Michael.
Yes (!) It's a cool old building, and honestly, the location is fabulous DURING THE DAY - right on the square. Great for walking to everything wonderful Prescott has to offer.
No (!) The evenings / nights (from dark until about four am) are LOUD! Between the motorcycles, police sirens, bars (and drunk patrons of same) there isn't much to recommend a stay. Having said that, I am no longer the "party person" I once could have been, and perhaps might have enjoyed it more at that age.
No (!) Our room. We faced the square, so nice little view, but it felt neglected and dirty - you didnt want to take your shoes off and walk barefoot on the carpet ...or sit on top of the bedspread (even clothed)...
No (!) The bathroom was tiny, dark, (one of the two lightbulbs over the mirror was out) and the shower was not a pretty sight (although it's not lit, perhaps happily)...the soapdish in the shower was, well, nasty, and, sadly, the shower clogged the last evening we were there, and remained clogged the next morning.
Yes (!) Breakfast (included) was wonderful, in the cool little bistro attached to the hotel. And the hotel and wait staff couldnt have been nicer. Both big pluses.
Final opinion? A getaway doesnt have to be luxurious to be special, but for a "romantic" weekend, or even a weekend with friends, this would have to be a miss.
