By far one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in! We booked the jacuzzi suite and it did not disappoint. The room had an old world feel yet it had the modern amenities that we all love. This included a full fridge and freezer, microwave, wireless internet, and even a dishwasher! The decor in the room was really nice featuring turn of the century furniture, and a nice sitting area that over looked the Museum of World Treasures. The hotel it self is situated in what I would describe as the historic district which has an array of shops, and restaurants. I highly recommend taking the short walk to the River City Brewing Company for a couple pints of Tornado Alley IPA!

Room Tip: Two words....Jacuzzi Suite!

We are Shriner's and stay here each time we have to be in town for a Shrine event. Hotel is a step back in time, when luxury was a subtle and quiet experience. Hotel is clean with plush comfortable beds. Breakfast buffet was very good, with adequate choices. Restaurants surrounding the area have wonderful food. Make sure you park on the upper levels of the parking garage, and although there is security walking the streets,this is a wild party atmosphere and vandalism and break ins could easily occur.

Old converted warehouse that is nicely appointed. The bathroom is huge although the shower configuration is a bit odd (make sure you put a few towels in front of the shower or you will have a flooded bathroom). No tub for those who like to have a soak. Very nice breakfast spread, nothing exotic, just good staples.

I've been to Wichita several times now - and still have to travel there for a few more times. Found this Hotel during one of my stays when going into the bars and restaurants downtown. The rooms are very nice - queen size beds, which are for me as European big enough, shower, TV, fridge, cooking spot - everything very useful. The rooms are clean and as I wrote above: the best thing is that the hotel is located downtown. So whenever you go to a bar you don't have to drink and drive - just go a few steps and you are in the room. The price is good, the only bad thing is the breakfast. Don't expect too much on that. Small choice of food but anyway it tastes good and the prepare it nice. The Hotel is 100% smoke free and equipped with free Wifi - and I hadn't had a room where it was not working.....

I very rarely write a review, but all my stays @ the Hotel At Old Town over the last year have been so splendid that I would like to share.

Rooms always clean with excellent high ceilings. I am convinced the beds are the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept on. Wireless works well. Hotel is amazingly quiet, which is a plus as well. Rates are competitive with Courtyard, Hilton etc. But this hotel has a unique flavor that none of the chains can match.

The building itself is a renovated warehouse / manufacturing plant from the early 1900's. The furnishings are classical both in the lobby and in the rooms as opposed to the faux chic you find in the chains. Rooms very well apportioned.

My stay this time had me in a smaller room with only a shower stall, which I didn't realize this hotel had. My preference is a whole tub, but this is a nothing issue at this hotel.

Front desk staff are very friendly, place is within walking distance of some nicer restaurants in the area. Parking is free and one minute away from front desk.

I really like this place. It is one of the few nice things I find in Wichita, which really is a dismal city otherwise.

We spent New Years eve 2011 & as well came another time back in October 2011. It was a group of 5 of us and we had a blast.

The hotel was very upscale, clean, modern. The rooms were equiped with everything you need. & if you forgot an item, theres a lil store inside the hotel for any last minute items.

It is the perfect spot for club hopping & not having to worry about driving anywhere. The hotel is in the center of all the clubs, so it was a very convienent 'drunk walk' location. If your in the area, I recommend Club Liquid- hiphop/r&b/ 21+ club, with the best 'Pineapple Upside Down Cake Drinks' ever.
