As you probably already know, the cast and crew of the movie Giant stayed here and therefore some of the nicest rooms are named after them, i.e. the James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson suites. After visiting several rooms, we stayed in a room overlooking the interior patio that had a small kitchenette. We decided that we didn't need to pay extra for one of the special rooms as we were only there one night. This was wise because we were there Christmas Eve, had a delightful dinner at the hotel (it was the only restaurant open in town on Christmas Eve), and bought provisions for breakfast as the hotel let us know that breakfast would not be served on Christmas Day.
About the rooms. The hotel is old, worn and tired looking. But I don't think you are going to find a better place to stay in Marfa. The location is right in the middle of town. The staff is kind and helpful. It is clean. You just have to keep reminding yourself…it is historic! I have stayed there three times.
