Dining

Brimstone
Reminiscent of the finest saloons of 1927, this working man's bar features hardwood floors, a stamped tin ceiling, billiards and a jukebox cranking out the tunes. Fantastic Mixologists aim to perfect your favorite elixir or maybe introduce you to something a bit daring...
Belvedere Room
Our Grand Room. Born of the past, redesigned to serve the future of Bakersfield. If you are looking for the ultimate dining experience, no need to look further. Serving business lunch weekdays, elegant dinner nightly. Please call for reservations.
Prarie Fire
Spontaneous combustion - second floor rooftop deck, firepits, and a smooth beat in the background. Are you sure you're still in Bakersfield? Climb those stairs early to reserve the cabana... Take advantage of a bit of decadence, a personal waiter to serve your meals waits for the cue. This is NOT your mom's Saturday afternoon picnic...
Farmacy Cafe
High Octane and flying fast - We brew the highest octane coffee in town. Careful, you may need a prescription. We open at 6 sharp for those in need of a jolt on the way to the office. Breakfast is optional, unless your looking for the best eggs in town.
Prospect Lounge
Feeling the vibe? Take another sip as a piano player entertains the room. Friends new and old, enjoying cocktails and the best live music in town. Delectable small plates make the perfect compliment. Prospecting nightly. Bring your tools of the trade. *The Prospect Lounge is open to the public on Friday and Saturday nights from 9PM - 1:30AM. The Prospect Lounge features a live DJ and is located in the lobby. Due to the high volume of the music, hotel guests are notified of the noise prior to checkin and, if available, offered quieter rooms away from the lounge.

The only thing going on in Bakersfield :)

This hotel is great if you're headed to Bakersfield and don't want to be bored. There's not much to do in the surrounding city/area, but everything you need is in the hotel. They have a coffee bar, sports bar, fine dining, club, and outdoor terrace bar. We stayed on a Saturday night and our hotel was the place to be!

great stopover

A perfect place to break up the long drive from the coast to Death Valley. Great drink and food at the bar and restaurant. All that was lacking was an HD MI connection on the TV.

Great hotel

This was a great stay, especially for the price. Enough space, super comfy bed and down comforter. Lots of stuff within walking distance. Only downsides were the weird glasstuff wall into the bathroom with just a sheer curtain covering it (great for couples, not so great for families) and a serious lack of parking. There is NO parking lot for this hotel. You can pay for valet parking overnight, but otherwise there is free parking in a nearby garage with a 3 hour cap and it closes at midnight, or street parking that has no parking between 1-4am or 2-5 am, etc.
