“Fun business stay”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Perfect downtown hotel 6 block from the mex border. Nicest people. Hotel is a little run down but the history kind of makes for it.

Rooms are spacious (some tlc will help)

Restaurants (Awesome Mexican food (Mexican style food bar deal)

Dome Bar was awesome.

I will recommend this place if you're staying for a 1 - 2 days in El Paso, not much to do in the area but the architecture is very unique around the area.

You pull up and it looks like the set of some movie where there's no one left on earth. Then you go in the lobby and it looks like the day after an estate sale and the only thing left are things that are nailed down. But when you get to the front desk and talk to the friendly staff (as in Will), the reasons to turn around start disappearing. You go on up to the room that badly needs remodeling and updating so you decide to go have a drink in the bar with the famous Tiffany dome. All you can focus on is the tacky chrome chairs but again, that goes away after you talk to the outgoing young man behind the bar. The restaurant is closed, there's no one in the cafe and we take that as a bad sign so we walk across the street for dinner. So why stay? Because if you don't, these gems will disappear and the only choice will be the aesthetic chains that are the fast foods of spending the night travels. It takes a little more time to get off of I-10 and yes, downtown El Paso is DEE-PRESS-ING but, the rooms are clean, the rates are very good, and the staff is so professional and friendly. It's not their fault the Camino Real corporation isn't keeping it up and taking pride in this historical gem.

Room Tip: The executive lounge is spotty-never figured out hours. Try The Oasis across the street for casual...

Great prices for this beautiful old hotel. We always use the Camino Real as our base when visiting Southern New Mexico, and El Paso. For a small price you can include breakfast, which we always do. Great front desk, extra large rooms, good beds, and excellent AC.

Walk inside and it is a very impressive place! The high domed stained glass ceiling is impressive. There is old world charm and the staff is very friendly. The room we had was very spacious, which was nice. Our room was west facing and when we arrived in the late summer afternoon, the A/C was off and the room was very hot. Even at full blast cold setting, you could barely feel the air. It took all night to cool the room down, so the first night was very uncomfortable. That same evening, we went to the rooftop pool to cool down. What a shock when we got there! This tiny old and extremely cloudy pool was it..... yuck! We sat outside for a few minutes, then headed back to our warm room. BY morning the room was cool and stayed cool the next day as long as we left the A/C on cold high and the drapes closed to the sun. The rooms need updating, at least in the carpeting as they were dirty. Not bad for the price (hotwire) but not good if we had paid a rack rate! I did like the underground secured parking garage, for which the fee was minimal.

Room Tip: Stay away from a west facing room in the summer!

I live in El Paso & really enjoy staying here on ocassion. By reading the other reviews, I probobly wouldn'd risk it. Yes the rooms are quite old. That being said, the hotel has alot of character and is very "stately". It has its quirks, but you definitly get the "wow" factor when you walk into this place. It costs about the same as a holiday inn express, but blows them away when it comes to old world elegance. And I'd put the tiffany glass dome bar against any in the nation. This is a hotel that your gonna take pictures of & email back home; when's the last time you did that for a "holiday inn"

The hotel itself is very nice. We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed it. The outside is very nice and antique. The staff was decent and the location was great. The room itself was nice but could have been kept a bit better. Needed more furniture and maybe some more pictures but over all it was a pleasant experience. Underground parking was nice but got crowded fairly fast. I didn't like how we had to pay for parking but it was secure and thats a reasonable excuse. Also on the location being near great restaurants, the Art Museum and the Plaza Theater made staying there a nice treat.

This was my second trip to El Paso and I wanted to stay in this historic hotel, however I was disappointed in the appearance. The rooms were very big which was a plus but there was a rust color coming out of the water faucet. I immediately called downstairs and asked them to send someone to check on the issue and the maintence person said you have to let the water run. I couldn't believe that is the answer they gave me, so I requested another room, the front desk staff was helpful and I got another room after a hour of waiting. He told me that you would have to let the water run if I noticed the rust color again, well by that time it was very late and I didn't want to search for another room at another hotel. The next morning I turned on the shower and the rust color in the water was there again. I immediately checked out and spoke to someone from El Paso who said they were featured on the local news for this issue. How unfortunate because I am sure I would have enjoyed staying in this historic hotel.
