I didn't stay at this hotel but I liked either its pretty renovated exterior (wooden, covered balconies, red-tiled roofs - in Mexican or Mediterranean style) and old-fashionable, stylish interior of the lobby, Winchester's Restaurant and Old West Saloon. It's for sure worth seeing.
The hotel was built by Phelps Dodge Corp (still one of the world's leading producers of copper) in 1902 and became a fancy hotel for both dignitaries and weary miners in the heart of the largest city between Saint Louis and San Francisco that time. It advertises as the longest continuously operating hotel in Arizona that I find a very American advertisement.
I asked at the lobby about the room for two but it cost about 150$ without tax and breakfast that was over twice above my maximum daily hotel budget and simply seemed to me much for just a 2-star hotel. Additionally they don't have any hotel parking lot. Hotel guests have to carry luggage by themselves. People who are used to the Hyatt will not find much to like here, I guess. Despite it the hotel was almost fully booked. I had to think that Americans were ready to pay a lot for staying just in only a bit over a hundred years old hotel. Excuse me, are they ready to pay 5 times more for 5 times older hotel in Europe? :-)
