The way the hotel is set they are trying for more of the museum side as opposed to the hotel side but that doesn't mean the hotel isn't worth the stay! Very nicely appointed, our room had a couch, table and chairs and an excellent shower in the bathroom. Everything was decorated and finished with top notch articles. The art was interesting, if not my taste. A few of the 'artworks' seemed to be trying a bit too hard to us. Unfortunately we stayed on a holiday weekend and the restaurant had only a pre fixe menu so we ventured out in search of breakfast. Even more unfortunately there were few restaurants open or available for Sunday breakfast, a huge disappointment for us but we didn't let it ruin the weekend. The Crystal Bridges museum is within walking distance and there is a path through town that is perfect for casually strolling to the art work or downtown shops. Be aware that Bentonville is practically owned by the Walmart corporation (you could look at it as a boon or a curse) and is honestly a bit of a distraction to the otherwise very nice town square. The art museum's architecture and surrounding area is absolutely beautiful and has some masterpieces that you wouldn't expect to be in NW Arkansas. Along the same walking path is a trail system that leads into some of the best mountain biking in the area. If you ride make sure you take your helmet and shoes, there are bike shops downtown that can rent you a quality bike to check everything out.
