“Great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The Grand Highland is perfectly situated in the heart of Whiskey Row in historic Prescott! We took our 8 year old son who is now infatuated with the Old West and he loved it too-we stayed in the Rodeo room which was decorated perfectly. The staff was friendly and very helpful. It was great to stay in a historic hotel with so many original architectural details, yet still contain so many modern amenities. We will definitely return.

Tucked into an alcove on Whiskey Row, the Grand Highland is a gem. It's newly renovated and you can definitely tell. Everything is clean and new. The staff was super friendly and helpful in suggesting things to do during our stay. They even granted us a late check out Saturday morning. I think we had one of the best rooms in the place -- it was situated at front of the building facing Whiskey Row. Not only was it surprising quiet but we had a perfect view of the big parade Saturday morning. There's only two such rooms so we definitely lucked out.
The breakfast left a little to be desired (bagels, muffins, juice, etc.) but there were always cookies and lemonade and even complimentary alcohol in the evening.
Parking is a hot commodity on Whiskey Row but the Grand Highland has its own parking for its guests. You just have to ask. It's just a dirt parking lot on the side of the building but it's locked and free.
Overall, wonderful stay and would definitely return.

Our 2-day, 1-night stay at The Grand Highland Hotel was short, but very sweet. We booked the Speak Easy room, which gave us a wonderful view of Whiskey Row directly below us, and the Courthouse Square across the street. We loved the Art Deco decor of our room, which was clean, comfortable, and surprisingly not too loud given the street activity. Special treats like lollipops, coffee, wine, beer, bagels, fruit, and pastries added a very welcoming and appreciative touch. But the real charm of the hotel comes from the family and staff that own and run it. We instantly felt like part of the family, quickly learned everyone's names, and immediately felt like we'd known them forever.
If you're looking for a convenient location that's close to shops and restaurants, a charming hotel that has appeal and warmth, and a welcoming place that is full of smiles, then stay at The Grand Highland Hotel.

We were quite positively surprised how exceptionally good this hotel was. Each room has western theme and a story.
The staff is very welcoming and we felt right at home with their good attitude. The hotel is centrally located right on Whiskey Row with a park and lots of restaurants near-by.
A big plus for me was the good coffee they served.
I just wish that other hotels would come up to this level of friendliness, kindness and welcoming as this hotel.

The Grand Highland Hotel is situated on a second floor of historic Whiskey row in downtown Prescott. The noise from the bars on the row cannot be heard ans the renovations that have been done to this space are like I said, AMAZING! Each room has a cute theme along the title; Sharlot Hall room, Big Nose Kate, or the speak easy room. The family whom owns the hotel have put great research and detail into the comfort of the rooms. Please be aware they are historic sized rooms. aka if you are looking for a typical grandeous generic pricey Marriot room go else where. If you are looking for a room that truly speaks to the authenticity of the city of Prescott, stay at the Grand Highland. Had such a wonderful experience there.

Stumbled across this newly remodeled and renovated hotel when making plans to attend the Mile High Brew Fest. Couldn't have been happier. Located on the 2nd floor of a building renovated to the studs after the fire of 2012, each room has a unique theme and although our room (Singing Cricket) was not large by any means, we never felt cramped, with high ceilings and a large bathroom, and a window that had a diagonal view of Montezuma St. and the courthouse. The small claw foot tub and shower in the room was "cute" according to my wife, but I must admit I struggled a bit to keep all the water inside the wraparound curtain while showering. My wife loved it, but I'm apparently better suited for a car wash. Overall, a very clean and comfortable room with all that you could really need.

We arrived sooner than anticipated so we called ahead to see if they could accommodate early check-in. Ray answered the phone and quickly confirmed the room was ready and after giving us the keys, he offered my wife a welcome glass of wine and put a beer in my hand after explaining to us the history of the building and future plans for a patio and market area in the adjacent empty lot. Ray was awesome and told us about the not so secret back door that we missed when walking over from the parking structure behind the hotel.

After a long day at the brew fest, Whiskey Row and a great dinner/nightcap at The Raven, we were ready to crash and the beds were super comfortable. Complementary bottled water in the room came in handy to minimize the hangover and the continental breakfast was a good surprise in the morning (Greek and regular yogurt, V8, Keurig coffee machine, juices, bagels, pastries, etc.). Only issue was that we slept with our window open and awoke to the sounds of beer bottles being emptied into the recycling dumpster behind the hotel from one of the next door bars. With the window closed, this would not have been an issue (our fault).

Overall, this is a perfect spot in the hart of Whiskey Row. I's ideal for couples looking to let loose on The Row or explore the town without having to deal with rundown accommodations found at some of the older spots in Prescott. Families might be a bit cramped here, but I don't know why you would bring kids to Whiskey Row anyway. Thanks to the staff for a great stay and we will certainly be back!

GET HERE BEFORE EVERYONE FINDS OUT HOW GREAT IT IS!
With pure luck we discovered this one-of-a-kind, historic and exquisite boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Prescott on June 1st. Having only been open for two weeks, the beauty of this remarkable find most certainly lies in the fact that the hotel is still undiscovered by the masses. Trust me, it won't be for long.
Damaged by the Prescott fire in 2012, the Grand Highland has been completely renovated with the utmost attention to every little detail. From the ornate black and white plush carpet that lines the entryway, to the stunning, custom faux finish on the walls, this is no ordinary small town hotel. This is a boutique hotel that caters to the sophisticated traveler who appreciates deluxe accomodations, elegant yet swanky decor, exceptional customer service, and a central location in the heart of the city.
We were greeted with a complimentary beer and glass of wine which was brought to our room, and it was a delightful surprise the next morning to find fresh fruit with greek yogurt, bagels with cream cheese, coffee and fresh fruit juice for breakfast. However, the best part of the morning was sitting down and talking with the gracious and charming owners, Nancy and Howard. This is the kind of experience we wish we could find everywhere! The next time we're in Prescott - we will DEFINITELY stay at the Grand Highland!
