We have stayed several times, this is a very unique hotel sone so well in the 1880's style. We have met people from all around the world here. Very clean, and a place like no other.

Nice bar staff making great drink; fancy or simple. Bar food is tasty and can function as dinner in a pinch. Wish they stayed open later!

Musty smell, very small rooms - some with no bathroom. Very pricey. Closed main area for special events only and used to be a great place to hang out for a drink and food. Not so great anymore

Such a cool, rustic spot with incredible cocktails and the food is amazing. We had the cheese and charcuterie plate with truffle fries and it was to die for. Great old west historic vibe. We'll definitely we back.
