... from their “real lives”…we shared much enjoyable and fun conversation, and as a bonus we provided a demo to the many nearby onlookers of my XShot tripod attachment, one of my favorite gadgets for being able to get in one’s own pics and include an actual backdrop, without also having to see the “extended arm” so prevalent in most “selfie” shots.

... on to Jerome, a small former mining town on a hill which we had passed through a day or so ago but had noted to come back to. We parked and walked through town. Shops, galleries, and awesome views of the valley below. Lots of these small towns have 'themes' and Jerome's is ghosts. We picked the Haunted Hamburger for an early lunch and were drinking by ...

We stopped for a sandwich break somewhere in the desert of Arizona and had a nice chat with a retired gentleman who comes down to the desert every year from Montana. We learned that big cactuses only start branching out when they are 75 years old and they live for a several hundred years.
We got to Prescott at around six. Doug greeted us and showed around ...
... which was essentially a hoarders excuse for a museum, it was a fantastic collection of stuff, some of it to do with mining but mostly it was just one man’s idea of what was not junk, but treasure. I have to say that the collection that he had was fascinating and we met people who were coming back for their second day to have a look around. If you like old cars, old machinery, tools, motorbikes, signs, trains, basically anything metal, you would love ...

We're having a heat wave - I might be dying. I know, what a big baby. It does cool off overnight tho. Yesterday it got up into the 90's but it was about 60 this morning. yeah baby, I dig the cool.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Vendome Prescott
Greatest little find of our entire vacation!
What a great find. This charming hotel was had lots of personality and old fashioned ambiance. It's a historic property that is nicely kept up and very comfortable. It is clean and meets all the standards for feeling right at home. The rooms are not extra large, but it feels like you are staying in a bedroom at an old historic house. It's almost 100 years old but has all the comforts of home. I read the review just before me and completely disagree. If you are used to the Ritz Carlton, this isn't it. It's warm and friendly and most everyone loves it's hometown feel.
The Vendome is in desperate need of a good cleaning!
After thoroughly researching hotels in the Prescott area, I booked the Hotel Vendome, largely because of the favorable comments of other travelers. Unfortunately, my stay was not a pleasant one. The bedspread and pillow shams were faded and had spots on them. The bathroom floor was dirty. The alarm clock went off at 2:00 a.m., the television came on at 3:00 a.m., the water pipes rattled, and the whole ambience was depressing. Since I had paid in advance, I did the best I could...I left as early as I could in the morning and returned as late as possible for two days. The complimentary breakfast was pretty pathetic, with weak coffee and very tart orange juice. There is no way that I would ever return to the Hotel Vendome or recommend it to anyone.
Fantastic, fun, clean, well worth the price, we will return
We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary with Abby at the hotel.
We stayed in room #17. The staff is plesant the hotel is spotless and well maintained. The breakfast was adequate and charming. The bathrooms are modern and very very clean. The hotel is located within walking distance to everything there is to do on Whisky Row.
Wish we had a sighting or two but that was not to be our luck.
We highly recommend this hotel and will be returning to try our luck with Abby, the resident ghost.
Great Price, Great Location
Great location!! Walk to the wonderful downtown area from this hotel.
While not luxurious, accomodations were comfortable. Continental breakfast was just OK. I will definitely stay here again based on location and price alone.
Really Nice Historic Hotel
What a wonderful place to be. I live close to Las Vegas and all I ever see is these big fancy glitter and lights places. This a a quiet, romantic place to be in a cool little old west town. I was there over the 4th of July to escape the hot desert weather (by the way, this hotel had GREAT air-conditioning! It may be a historic building, but it has all the modern conveniences!) It was a warm summer weekend, but nothing like where I am from! The hotel was inviting, comfortable and very friendly. We actually made new friends with some other guests rocking on our rockers on the front porch watching the world go by.
Great escape for us from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The place we stayed was as fun as all the rest. I am going back again!
My wife and I took a motorcycle trip and wanted to try a place with a flair for The Old West. The Vendome was quite enchanting in both appearance and Western Heritage. The room was rather large and accomodations adequate and comfortable. No air conditioning, however, late September was cool in the evening and the ceiling fan helped with circulation. A quiet location and walking distance to the center of town, Whisky Row and restaurants. The old style tub and shower was a treat, especially if you're the first to get to the hot water.
Wish we could have stayed longer
We stayed in Prescott for the last night of our 10 day trip to Arizona.
I picked the Vendome because I wanted to stay at a quaint inn for our last night. We were not disappointed. The inn keeper was friendly and most helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable and the mattress was the best I slept on the entire trip. We enjoyed sipping wine on the front porch in the evening after dinner. Unfortunately due to an early flight out of Phoenix, we had to skip out before the continental breakfast, but I sounded as though it was going to be a quite a spread.
If our travels ever take us through Prescott again, we'll be back.
I agree, it IS the best little hotel in Prescott
What a great find! I agree with Scott who wrote a review. I stumbled across this place while at the Farmer's Market in Prescott. I felt so at home, like I did when I was a kid...carefree...away from the hustle and bustle of the city. This hotel is so quaint and charming. It's over 100 years old and it has old time warmth and character. The owners are friendly and helped us find great places to eat and hike. I felt like crying when I had to return to the big city and reality. I had a couple of days, truly away from it all, sitting on the front porch in the evening drinking a glass of wine. It doesn't get any better than that!
Best little Hotel in Prescott
From the second we walked into this cozy little hotel we knew we were in for a great time. The hospitality of the owners is unbeatable. They are very informative and kind. The breakfast in the morning was outstanding, fresh fruits, danish's, cereal, fresh fruit juice, coffee, tea. The rooms are actually quite big and comfortable. They have king bed's claw foot tubs, pull chain toilet's and 1920 period wall paper.
Very nice. It is within walking distance to the best antique stores and food. We will definitly return for another stay. Oh yeah, Abby and her cat are still around! Whoa, what a fun place!
I have stayed at this wonderful hotel at least 10 times in the past two years. It is such a delight, I feel like I am coming home. It makes me feel like I have taken a step back in to time. If you have ever seen Chrisopher Reeve and Jane Seymour in "Somewhere in Time", that's what it's like. Not as big, but it has the same feeling.
