Went there for a Bakersfield wedding, had no idea what to expect. When I lived in Bakersfield (fifteen years ago) this wasn't a popular area, but I wanted the hotel room to be in the same location as the wedding and the wedding party insisted the hotel was fabulous. They were right! The room was huge, we needed a cot and they were super quick in the delivery/set up of the cot. The room was very clean, and comfortable, the beds were comfortable. The service was stupendous! Valet service is only $10.00 per day if you stay at the hotel, inexpensive and well worth it because it's difficult finding parking surrounding the building. You can charge the valet to the room. We stayed two nights - the first night we had dinner in the Belvadere, and second night at the wedding. The breakfast after the second night was at the Farmacy. The Belvadere steak was delish! The Farmacy had a couch / coffee table set up we sat at for breakfast, and ordered a light breakfast before heading out. We didn't come across any ghosts (I insisted we not hear ghost stories until we got home so we (husband and I along with two young boys) weren't spooked!) Overall, a wonderful stay! One last note: the wedding location was also fabulous, on the second floor balcony. Check into this venue if you're planning your wedding!
