Grand, elegant and lavish describe the restoration of the Hotel Settles

This thirties era hotel has been restored to its original glamour.

The renovated Hotel Settles is a beautifully restored historic hotel from 1930. It was abandoned in the 80's and reopened in December of 2012. They have certainly done justice to this historic masterpiece. The lobby and meeting area is absolutely stunning, and has been restored to its original grandeur. The guestroom that I had was not a suite, but was very spacious and had a sitting area and wet bar area. I can't imagine how big the suites are. The bed was wonderful and the shower was huge! The wonderful, huge windows are actually almost all original and were rebuilt during the restoration process. The restaurant in the hotel is wonderful. We ate there two days and the food and service was great. At the time of my visit, the hotel was still under construction. The pool and outdoor courtyard is expected to be complete by this summer. The cigar bar and billiards room is supposed to be open within a couple of weeks. 40+ of the 60+ hotel rooms were available for occupancy.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are close to the elevator. This hotel does not have long halls.

We stopped at the Settles on a drive through Big Bend. Its a little out of the way, but very worth it.

The restoration is still underway, but very far along. The exterior and lobby is beautiful. The lobby gives you a great sense of what the hotel was like in the first oil boom.

The rooms are unexpectedly large and very well done. Fantastic bed.

Big Spring is a little out of the way, but the Settles makes it completely worth the stop.
