Visited Marfa on our way to Big Bend National Park and decided to stay at the Hotel Paisano. Some of the reviews on tripadvisor are pretty negative, but we took a chance and are we glad we did. This is a lovely, charming hotel of the old school.Everything was perfect, from the gracious fountain-adorned courtyard to the spacious lobby, to the original wooden doors off the corridors (with the original, although covered over, transom lites). Marfa itself is a bit of a wasteland and finding a place to eat was tricky. But the management at the hotel helped with a dinner suggestion (separate review of Cochineal will be posted). Breakfast was a bit more challenging but we did manage to find a small diner.
The hotel has a terrific little exhibit about the filming of Giant and a few interesting gift shops.If you find yourself in Marfa be sure to book a room here!
