Recent guest reviews

What a great piece of history! The hotel is beautiful. Loved the smiles on the staff and their service. The rooms were clean and comfy. We stayed there with our kids and ate at the restaurant...loved their great dinner, live music and the great breakfast. If you have to spend a night in Parkersburg... spend it here!

Stay here. This is a first-class hotel. The staff were amazing and very professional. Our room was a king room and included a delicious breakfast the next morning. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

My wife and I took a few days off just after Labor Day and made the right choice by choosing to stay in the Marie Antoinette suite at the Blennerhassett Hotel. AWESOME upgrade! The room truly felt like the French Queen herself could have stayed there. The suite had a comfortable king size bed, marble floor in the bathroom, shower for two with body sprays, elegant French accents throughout... just an excellent room! Also the entire staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. We haven't had such a good experience staying somewhere since we stayed at the Golden Anchor Cabins in Canaan Valley for our anniversary. We will return!

Entering the hotel was like entering another time. Beautifully decorated, staff friendly and helpful. Great location for Parkersburg WV/Marietta, OH area. Room decorated beautifully and accommodations couldn't have been better. Comfortable, bed, plenty of pillows, individual temperature control for your room, clean, extra amenities. Parking or valet service no extra charge. Lounge/restaurant on site along with a small coffee bar serving Starbucks. Food was priced right and delicious. Cant wait for go back.

Wow! This hotel is an absolute gem. A great break from the cookie cutter chain hotels. You must experience this hotel. It's a historic property in downtown Parkersburg. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. I can't wait to have breakfast outside tomorrow. Room is gorgeous with classic furnishings and bathrobes! It feels like I'm in a NYC hotel. There is a great restaurant in the hotel called Spatz. No reason to leave to eat. Finally - the best part - every one of the employees was so nice and accomodating.

Our group of friends stayed at the Blennerhassett Hotel while in town to visit Blennerhassett Island. This is a beautifully restored 1880's hotel that was our "home" during a great weekend visit to Parkersburg. It was a perfect location to stay, within walking distance of the Blennerhassett Museum and the Ferry port serving Blennerhassett Island. The hotel was beautifully restored several years ago. The rooms, restaurant, and lobby exceeded it's three star rating. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner at the excellent restaurant that offers delicious meals and comfortable ambiance. An unexpected treat was being able to enjoy our dinner and evening at the gas lit courtyard that offered a very entertaining local band. The courtesy breakfast was top notch. All in all, I couldn't have asked for a better hotel for our weekend get-away. My wife and I plan to return to Parkersburg for future get-aways because we have such an excellent hotel in which to stay.

Stayed 1 night Aug 27. A wonderful experience. Great value. Clean, friendly staff, felt safe, Spats restaurant is worth the visit for dinner, a free breakfast that offers anything you want. YES, we would recommend and go back.

We traveled a few hours out of our way to stay at the Blennerhassett, and I'm glad we did. The beautiful old building has been well maintained. The hotel offers such traditional amenities as a bell staff to help with luggage, but without any stuffiness or pretentiousness. Our room was smallish but comfortable, and the lobby and public areas were fun to explore. The cost was considerably less than I would have expected to pay for this type of facility. A huge bonus is the excellent hotel restaurant, Spats. We had a delicious dinner there, choosing from an eclectic menu as we dined on the lovely outdoor patio overlooking an attractive garden. We enjoyed walking around historic Parkersburg and only wish we had been able to spend more time there. Well worth a visit.

Using our bucket list of visiting Historic Hotels of America, we planned a several-day stay in Parkersburg and loved the Blennerhassett. Incredibly comfortable room, fantastic bathroom, even includes delicious breakfast in their attractive restaurant. But don't limit yourself to breakfast -- our dinner was delicious too, especially the Pecan Praline ice cream dessert. Definitely worth a stay here.

On our way back from Nashville decided to go the secenic route thus I booked an overnight at this absolutely amazing hotel!!! I can’t think of one con. The only way to describe this establishment from structure,decorating, staff,dining,rooms to parking is FANTASTIC. Great job!!!
