... We then went to the Palace for dinner - another recommended stop. It is a beautiful old saloon. Beautiful place and awesome food - probably our fanciest and best for us dinner since we left home but not a fancy place. Delicious!!!! Great suggestions Gretchen. We aren't going to be able to do any hiking, so I guess we will have to come back sometime. We really enjoyed seeing Prescott and wish we had more time but have to keep on keeping on! We are off to Jerome and however far we ...
... to be directly in the back of that section loading up some other items. Instinctively upon seeing him in there, I said, “Hey how’s it going?” and I startled the heck out of the manager. It TOTALLY reminded me of this classic commercial. The manager was around my age, and at the cash register moments later he told me that he normally never expects any human contact when he goes into the back of that ...
... were amazing, it reminded us of driving in Switzerland, as we had to cross through the Kaibad National Forest and the Prescott National Forest which are both very mountainous.
We eventually reached a town called Prescott, still in Arizona. It seems to be a fairly new town, built as a resort area.
We are making our plans day-to-day as we are getting very near to our final destination. No doubt tomorrow over breakfast we will decide where to go.
... s two dogs (all wonderful individuals, just with some potentially clashing personalities), we had holed up at a cheap motel just down the street from Kev's house. The pups were again happy, and we all had a good night's sleep, looking forward to more hiking tomorrow. Pictures from these adventures are forthcoming; we've been working with limited connectivity on only one of our picture-taking devices. Check back later! P.S. Happy Father's Day to our dads, and happy birthday to my brother ...
Thursday morning we set out for Jerome, which is a little historic mining town. It sits way up on a hillside. One of the locals told us that several years ago, the jail slid down the hill and now rests on the street below. Jerome is filled with galleries, curio shops and tasting rooms. We enjoyed exploring the galleries, and did a bit of wine tasting. The man who served us at the tasting ...

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!
A Taste of The Old West
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.
Breakfast is served from 7 to 9:30 with cereals, fruits, bread, pastry and of course, plenty of good coffee. The staff were very friendly, courteous and engaging. My wife was worried that The Vendome wasn't up to par for the occassion of my birthday, however, I couldn't have asked for better time. We would stay at The Vendome again if we ever pass through.
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!
Great cross between a B&B and hotel
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.
It's a historic hotel, and everything is like it used to be. I can walk everywhere. They are surrounded by great restaurants and antique shops in an old Victorian neighborhood.
The owners, Frank and Kathie are charming and professional. Not gushy friendly, just great caring people. I always feel good about staying there, and recommend it to everyone.
They give you a nice continental breakfast with a big variety of things. They don't just throw you a doughnut with some coffee, this is really nice.
I was shocked that they didn't have me pay in advance. She just said, don't worry, you can pay in the morning, people who stay here don't run out on us. Now is that old fashioned hospitality or what? A hotel that TRUSTS you? Like I said, it's a step back in time, when things were simplier and people trusted one another.
