Can't take simple reservations
The hotel is ok but taking something as simple as a reservation and keeping it straight seems to beyond the staff's capacity to handle. I made two reservations one for one night and one for later that week for two nights. when I arrived for the first they had two rooms booked not one. I was assured that the second reservation was fine. later that week I had not received a confirm so I called and they had lost the second reservation. I would hate to see what they would do with a booking of anything larger then 1 room when they can't handle a simple room reservation. save yourself the aggravtion and stay somewhere else.
A piece of history..
I have stayed at this lovely lady a number of times. I travel quite a bit for business and get tired of the cookie cutter rooms that are provided on a nationwide scale.
This is a hotel that is designed for the traveler who enjoys something different, something a little out of the ordinary and who loves to be surrounded by the history of the place.
The food is wonderful, the staff very helpful and you can't find a better spot for a nightcap than in the bar right off the lobby.
I can stay anywhere I choose and I choose the Hassayampa each time.
Sometimes historic is just old...
The Hassayampa may be historic, but in my book it's just old. There is nothing charming about this place at all. The rooms are small, the bathrooms border no terrible. The staff appears essentially indifferent to guest needs and cannot seem to handle any requests beyond giving you the room key. The location is reasonable for Prescott but finding parking (across the street) appears to be an exercise in mystery that nobody at the hotel can advise on. Save your money and check into the Marriott (SpringHill Suites) down the road. At least you know you'll be in the 21st century!
OK, would stay there again.
Stayed there one night. Room was clean, but small. Bathroom was tiny, and had to scoot around the bed to get to it. Otherwise, was just OK-location is great; right downtown. Lobby is beautiful, and if you remember that this is an older hotel, you will enjoy yourself. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Pricey and just ok
It was pricey and not that great, I read the other reviews and thought of giving it a try.
The hotel is certainly well located, downtown. You can smoke there, but again, you can smoke ANYWHERE in Prescott. That's actually annoying, if you are a non-smoker.
Bed was good, room too small. I give it a "2" for the price x what you really get.
Nice and worth it
The elevator was cool and the breakfast was great.
At least I could smoke!
It's hard to find a smoking room these days, and I was glad to find one here. It was a little pricey, but at least we had a chance to relax and it was downtown. They allowed smoking in the bar and restaurant too, which was very nice. The rooms are a little small but the lobby is nice to sit in. I liked it.
Built during the great age of jazz, in a historic and very quaint mountain town; our recent stay at the Hassayampa Inn, was spectacular! Super frindly staff, cozy small period rooms with great cushy beds, ambience extradinaire! Restaurant superb! And live jazz in the lounge! Heck, it;s right off the square and the best Prescott has to offer! Will recommend to all!!!!
Very pleasant and friendly; great breakfast
wonderful old hotel... walking distance to historic downtown... Elegant for an old West Hotel - rooms are small but comfortable. Breakfast is included and its great food, with a charming dining room and an inclusive menu. Staff were all pleasant, the windows do open and I did have a thermostat in my room. All in all, a nice experience and an interesting small town.
Clerks bad attitude
We stayed at the Hassayampa Inn on our 22 Wedding Anniversary July 27, 2002. The room we stayed in was nice, but obviously under construction during the week. The Hotel is very nice, with the breakfast included in the price. A very nice sit down breakfast and the service was Excellent.
The only drawback to the whole experience was the heating and cooling of the room. It must be a central unit, because we had no controls in our room, and it got very warm during the night.
When checking out, we were asked how our stay was, and when I told them it was excellent except for the H/Cooling, the clerk told us "that's too bad". Not "I'm sorry", or "you should have called the desk", just"...too bad..". A nice experience turned into a disappointment with the attitude of the clerk on checkout.

... the way we noticed that traffic was light, moved smoothly and though there were streetlights all along the highway, they weren’t lit. Most of the buildings were dark also. Once we reached the Bund area of the city, there were plenty of lights with buildings lit up like Times Square with continually changing light displays and advertising.
Our hotel was the Westin and it is very luxurious! We have a beautiful ...

As I walked back to my truck, I was thankful that these volunteers put this on for townsfolk and wanderers like me to see and take in. Driving out, I’d hoped to see the old man in his driveway to bid me adieu but he must have gone on with his day somewhere inside. I drove another 30 seconds and was out of town back on the open road.

Driving mainly on I-40, we could see what remained of the Arizona Route 66 and although most of it was under I-40, some of it remained in short sections of dirt track and tarmac, with one or two wash bridges standing out as a monument to the old road. We came off the Interstate to stand on the corner in Winslow, Arizona, see the deserted service station at Twin Arrows and drive through Winona.

... bacterial growth, feeding off the ferrous and sulfurous wash from the mine tailings upstream. The bacteria don't affect the potability of the water itself, but they blanket the entire creek bottom and make it impossible for other invertebrates to recolonize the stream; so even 100+ years after the mine went out of use, since the mining company never cleaned up the tailings from the mine shaft, the riparian ecosystem is incapable of ...
