This is my 2nd business trip to El Paso and I opted to stay downtown because it was affordable and I wanted to see if it was better than other locations. I truly appreciate the hotel for accepting and or honoring the state rate for TX employees as well.
I do appreciate the affordable cost since I travel often for work. The front desk personnel was professional and personable. As another person pointed out.... it appears that the hotel is undergoing some upgrades or changes which are visible in the hotel lobby. It seems as though they just started because even though the rooms now have flat screens the aesthetic decor and fixtures are still from 1980's era. I also noticed that my AC would not maintain a cold temperature and that the bathroom exhaust fan did not work.
The front desk was sweet enough to recognize me as a Platinum Priority Club member and also to provide me a microwave and small personal fridge in my room. I was informed that the parking situation is sticky since people want to park in the hotel parking lot because there are many bars and restaurants nearby.
To be honest I think it would best that they demolished the old dated hotel and started from scratch because it is a pretty old. I would recommend that they include an indoor heated pool, sauna, fitness center, updated business center and don't forget a strong WiFi service for those of us who need a strong internet access.
I will continue to return as long as the owners of this hotel maintain a good hotel rate for those of us who work for the state and frequently travel. I recommend the hotel also provide a couple of washers and dryers so that I don't have to go looking for a laundromat.
