I was in love with the hotel even before entering because of the beautiful architecture, the welcome feeling of the courtyard with colorful flowers, places to sit and relax.
I was also realistic in my expectations. I knew this was an historic hotel and part of the charm I expected was to be taken back to 1927 not 2009. That said, when I opened the doors and saw the lobby with the antiques, calming colors, there was such a feeling of peace and serenity, I felt transported back in time. This feeling was enhanced with the warm welcome I received from Kathy and the hotel staff. They were quick to answer my questions and help with the lift . I would have understood if they couldn't jump to my requests as there were other people being helped.
The room was clean, well appointed with antiques, comfortable bed and a jinormous Jacuzzi tub. There were all the modern amenities and a view out the window of big puffy clouds in a cornsilk blue sky.
I ate in the Peacock Restaurant and had the best meal I could have imagined. The room was very elegant reminiscent of a Victorian Tea Room. Alison was the perfect hostess, warm, friendly, attentive and full of useful information about the Prescott Square.
I could go on but I'll leave it to say that I had the best time at the Hassayampa Inn and would happily recommend it to others. It met my ideal of a 1927 hotel experience. I was looking for warm, friendly staff, rooms with character, comfortable bed, central location, good food and a tranquil place to rest. I wasn't looking for perfection or just a room for the night. I was looking for an experience and I found it.
I have to add that I went in with a good attitude. I looked for the best and I got it. I didn't go in with a frown comparing it to every other place I've stayed, because I knew it would be unique. I approached them with a friendly face and smile and it was met in return.
