Reviewed 7 January 2014

We stayed at Hotel Vendome just after New Year's. It's an old hotel with charisma and a great husband-wife team running the show. Even has a little bar inside the front. A simple breakfast in the morning as well as the reasonable rate brought us here, and we will return.Easy walk to the little shops in town, as well as to a nice walk along a stream. Not sure how quiet the rooms would be if the hotel were fuller, but it was fine for us.

I spent four nights at the Hotel Vendome as part of a "working" vacation. I had a room with a queen bed at the rear of the second floor, with the updated step-in shower. The building is old but the bathroom, linens, and bed were all up-to-date. The October temperatures were moderate so I didn't need either heat or air-conditioning; I opened the windows at night for fresh, cool air. My stay was mid-week so noise from Whiskey Row wasn't an issue.

This is a "bed-and-breakfast" but it used to be a rooming house, two stories, each with a long hall with the rooms opening off of it. Thus it has an open atmosphere instead of the closed-in feeling that some former homes may give.

I spent several hours each day with my laptop, and while the room itself is equipped with wi-fi, there was really no comfortable place in the room to spend this much time typing at a lap-top. So I spent the time instead at one of the tables in the very pleasant lobby. The view from the lobby windows is a pleasant one of small-town America. The lobby is not large but it hosts a small bar open to the public, and the patrons, both local and guests, provided a social but not overly loud atmosphere. The free breakfast is also served at the bar. A guest pantry with ice, apples, cookies, teas, etc. was off the lobby and was a very nice touch.

The hotel personnel were friendly, courteous, and helpful.

Hotel Vendome is just south of the courthouse square, so restaurants and shopping are within easy walking distance. Prescott also offers shopping malls and many other more restaurants within easy driving distance.

I was in Prescott to do some hiking, and the area provides many different kinds of hiking trails from the easy, paved trail at Lynx Lake to the strenuous jaunt up Thumb Butte. The local mountains also provide mountain trails with a lot of elevation change; other nearby areas offer more high-desert-like hikings. An urban pathway along the local creek is available only a block or two from the hotel.

All-in-all, this was a most pleasant and relaxing getaway from the Phoenix area -- only 90 minutes away by car but a total change of terrain and atmosphere -- and I'm looking forward to returning.

What an enjoyable stay in this hotel. Barbie and Harry are great hosts. We enjoyed talking with them while sitting at the bar. They provided great recommendations for nearby restaurants and attractions for visiting guests. As an historic landmark, the hotel still has a lot of its original charm, with some modern amenities. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Prescott. PS Barbie enjoys it when you push the buzzer in the room (yes it still works).

On our annual Thanksgiving trip, our group of 20 or so stayed in this hotel for three nights. The historic nature of the hotel made it incredibly charming, as did the owners and staff who clearly care a lot about the place. Our room was small but tidy, and the adjacent bathroom was fantastic - HUGE with a big shower and space to move around. I agree with some of the other reviews that there are downsides to staying in an older hotel - like cooler showers during periods of heavy use throughout the hotel and worn curtain shades that made street lights very obnoxious during the night. But, the price is very reasonable, especially since it includes a basic breakfast.

The best part of this stay, for me, was the location. SUCH a perfect spot, away from Whiskey Row but close to anything you need. Parking was a breeze and walking everywhere in the charming town was simple.

Room Tip: The upgraded bathroom was well worth it.

What a great old hotel with a lot of charm, including the owners. The rooms are well maintained, comfy and have all of the necessary amenities. Why not a 5 rating ? I'm pretty picky and there were a few details that you may want to know about before arrival. It could be a bit noisy between rooms (thin walls) as we could hear our neighbors talking next door. They were very comsiderate though and didn't chat too late. My first impression of the place was that it looked a little "tired". Worn carpets, missing light bulbs from fixtures, a well used mat at the front door. The rooms, however, were very satisfying and the fresh breakfast goodies are worth returning for.

We have stayed at the Hotel Vendome previously and enjoyed every minute of it. We decided to take our annual trip and stayed again at the hotel. The weather was beautiful, got a chance to attend a great charity concert with Spencer Day, and enjoyed the hotel atmosphere. The owner is always very nice and welcoming. We enjoyed sitting out on the top balcony enjoying the evening and beauty of Prescott. Will definitely stay here again.

Just returned from a 4 day stay at the Hotel Vendome. What struck me most was the atmosphere of friendliness. We enjoyed hanging out in the lobby, enjoying the pleasant company of the staff. If you want high tech and lots of amenities this isn't for you. If you want coziness, friendliness and quiet, this is THE place. If you are checking in late (after 9 pm) be sure to call ahead. Also, some things like blow dryers are available, but you do need to ask. Check their website to determine which room you want as they are all slightly different in decor or the bathroom set up (some have claw foot tubs etc). If you want a haunted room check room 16. I would gladly return here for any length of stay.
