I go to Bisbee every year for a getaway on a special event weekend and always have a great time as it's a very friendly place to be. I've stayed at numerous hotels and this year, booked a room at the Hotel San Ramon to try something new and to save a few bucks from another nearby hotel that's pretty pricey (especially on a special event weekend like this was). My first great experience was discovering that you can save a nice chunk by booking online and early on their website. I did that and was very happy with the discount. So easy to do. I loved the pics of the room online, but to be honest, they do NOT do the rooms justice! The rooms are far lovlier in person than their photos indicate! When you check in and head upstairs, all the doors are open so you can look in each room (well, if you're first up there, anyway, of course). I did and was really impressed with the lovliness of each room!
When I arrived, I was greeted by the extremely friendly staff: Tamara, the manager and Jessica, the housekeeper. Delightful women! Each guest was given a gift bag full of fun things to enjoy with our weekend, a nice touch that they certainly dídn't have to do and that was very much appreciated. Party beads, noisemakers, lollipops and colorful leis as well as a nice note. (That night, waiting by the door to my room, was a glass jar with freshly baked cookies inside and a sweet little note telling me to enoy the special weekend!).
The room was beautiful and immaculate, and the bed beautifully made up with lovely pillows and nice, soft sheets. Aesthetically, everything went together so beautifully. The amenties in the bathroom included shampoo, conditioner, lotion, bath salts, makup removers and there's even a separate towel specifically for makeup. A hair dryer was provided, too. The room had a beautiful tray with bottled water and wine glasses on the bed. Everything was spotless, tidy and exactly the way you expect and want your room to be. Each room has it's own air conditioning unit with a remote, so it was easily adjustable from bed (a nice option).
I was in the one room that is in the interior of the hotel (all others face the street), Golondrina. It was very quiet, but even so, they provided soft earplugs just in case you want them. I didn't need them. I never heard my neighbors at all, either. This room has a window that faces a (very) narrow alley, so there is a skylight for added light. It is in a cupola so the windows that are letting in the light are on the sides, not directly in the ceiling. It gives you tons of light (something to keep in mind if you prefer it dark in the morning). It's a great room for an afternoon nap! The ceiling is very high and has a fan over the bed with chains low enough to reach easily. Nice.
I have stayed in a lot of hotels, B&Bs, inns, etc. and can honestly say that Hotel San Ramon wins BIG points on so many levels from me and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them! Excellent customer service, excellent accommodations, excellent attention to details AND to top it all off, a lovely thank you letter for staying with them. THAT gets even more points: a thank you note. Perfect.
Just trust all of us that are telling you how lovely a stay it is and go. You will love it! I'll DEFINITELY be returning and enjoying their lovely hospitality again soon!
