“Fun, comfortable and very reasonable.”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here around Christmas. The common areas had great pine aroma from Christmas tree in lobby. The little coffee/snack room is great for convenience any time of day or night - had single serve coffee machine and one of best cupcakes I ever had. The room was small but bed was comfortable, and our bathroom nice and BIG. Location can't be better - block from Courthouse Square. Also, coffee house on one side and nice restaurant on the other - great when you're really tired and don't want to go far.

You can read the description on the web site - it's accurate. We arrived late after the front door was locked for the night. Having made reservations on hotels.com, it didn't occur to me to contact them in advance to make arrangements for late entry. Wondering if we we'd be left out in the cold (literally as it was early Feb), we were pleased to find the phone number posted on the door to call. No problem - the resident staff member was right out to let us in, explain what we needed to know about early am coffee, the included continental breakfast, etc.

The facility is quite charming,though be forewarned - they have tried to preserve everything, so don't expect 21'st century shower fixtures. As I understand it some of the rooms were renovated back in the 80's, but both rooms we occupied (our stay was long enough we needed to move halfway through) had claw foot tubs with full surround shower curtain and real antique plumbing fixtures that I found fascinating. (OK, full disclosure, I'm a retired mechanical engineer!)

Continental breakfast is nicely done, not extravagant, but better than the basic store bought Danish and coffee one sometimes finds. Most folks don't stay as long as we did, so it became slightly monotonous, but the offering was good enough that it wasn't a problem. Plus there were waffles on the weekend for a little variety.

We especially enjoyed the intimate bar setting (wine & beer only) in the evenings. Will definitely stay here again. If you plan to visit, just realize that it is a nicely restored, well maintained 100 yr old facility, not a modern business hotel. They have nice high speed wifi, but there are no desks with convenient power outlets - you'll have to make do.

We loved the Vendome. We felt like we were staying with family! Family who lived just a block off famed Whiskey Row... How convenient!

More like a large B&B than hotel, guests gather in the lobby or out on the porch for breakfast or drinks in the evening (great local beers). The set-up is very conducive to chatting, and we met several people. We too loved the claw foot tubs and chain toilets and lace curtains. Having two attached rooms with a bathroom in between was the perfect setup for us and our older daughter.

Stephanie is a great baker and makes the airiest waffles ever. Mmmmmmm....

The ghostly legend of Abby and Noble is more "sweet" than "scary" and added to the charm. We were sad to leave and we hope to be back someday.

Room Tip: If you're traveling with family, you can't go wrong with one of their double bedroom setups...

From the first moment a friend recommended Hotel Vendome to the reluctant checkout Sunday afternoon, our entire experience was wonderful. The website was very user-friendly and informative and when I called the hotel directly for some more information (having never visited Prescott) they were very friendly and helpful, even offering an early check-in if no one rented the room the night before our arrival. When we arrived early Saturday afternoon there was plenty of free parking right in front of the hotel and once inside we were promptly greeted at the check in station and offered a drink from the lobby bar - which has an impressive list of beers and wines available. Our second floor guest room was roomy and comfortable, even though it is in need of some updating, we didn't mind at all. The authentic history and charm is present everywhere throughout this hotel, from the clawfoot tubs to the two story front porches. They also offer a cozy common area with local restaurant and daily nightlife offerings as well as complimentary hot and cold beverages and a cute selection of gift shop items. After a fun night out in Prescott we retreated to our room for a good night's sleep and woke rested and refreshed and eager to sample the included breakfast downstairs. The continental breakfast had something for everyone: cold cereal, fresh fruit, yogurts, pastries, waffles and the most delicious homemade blueberry lemon cake we have ever tasted - which the owners graciously wrapped a few extra pieces for us to take home. We had a great stay and plan to visit again soon.

Great location in Prescott, nice and clean rooms, simple but really yummy breakfast, and Eric, the owner, was really gracious offering advice on local restaurants. It was also great to have a cozy bar with a wide selection of beer/wine right at the reception. Can't wait to be back in the summer!

Hotel Vendome is one of our favorite romantic weekend getaways. We love the quaint charm and old fashioned feel of this hotel. The rooms have antique furnishings and bathrooms complete with claw foot tubs and pull chain toilets. I love that you can view the rooms online and decide which one fits you best. They even have a haunted room! They have a cute little wine bar in the lobby and the staff is very friendly. The hotel is located next to Whiskey row and is within walking distance of some great restaurants, bars, and shops. We can't wait to return next year!

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Vendome. It's well located, the staff are great, and they made excellent recommendations for eating. Breakfast at the hotel was really good.

The only drawback was the party crowd on a Friday night in the room above. Would recommend a second floor room for guests.

Room Tip: Try the second floor rooms

Thank you for taking time to review us and we are glad you enjoyed your stay.

Overall I would consider our hotel to be peaceful and quiet but as mentioned in this review we do occasionally get guests on the weekends that imbibe a little too much on Whiskey Row and forget what their 'inside voice' should sound like. We do encourage any guests that is having a issue with this to call our on-site night manager and the situation will be handled swiftly in an anonymous and polite manner.
