The Blennerhassett Hotel is part of Parkersburg history. The staff at hotel and restaurant were excellent. Great place to stay and dine. Even our pet had top woof treatment. Looking forward to a return trip.

This is the best hotel in town. Located right downtown, it is a historic hotel with a classic feel. The staff is great in every respect. The room was spacious with a very elegant feel. The box of chocolates on the bed was a very nice touch too. The bathrooms were large and well appointed. The bed was first rate in every way. The workout room was located in the Atrium on the third floor. Seven machines and weights. it was not large, but fine. However, for a hotel of its size, I would have expected something a little larger. Since it is located right near the rooms, I suspect it can be noisy for the people who stay near there. I liked the "business center" in the Atrium. The breakfast was good. While included in the room, it also had an egg station and a make your own waffle bar. The rest was so so. In some ways a step up from the chain-hotel breakfasts. One caveat. They have an open door policy for dogs. I could hear barking (a little) at night. They have a welcome sign for the dogs with their names on a sign and some bones. Very cute. i don't mind dogs so that was not a problem for me. Unless you need to earn hotel points. I can't see any reason to stay anywhere else in town.

The rooms were very comfortable and clean. They have a cozy bar and library nook. The Spatz main dining is a highlight. The food was delicious and menu unique. A rare find and treat for WV! The staff was genuinely friendly. If it had an on-site spa and quieter heating units it would be a perfect hotel. Non the less a great place to stay and one I would look forward to visiting again.

First rate service at this fine historic hotel in the heart of historic downtown Parkersburg. If you like avoiding the boring chains, this is the place to stay. Parking is convenient. Free, fabulous breakfast in their dining room, with made to order omelets available. There is a coffee shop in the lobby too that serves Starbucks. Easy walking to several independent restaurants in the downtown but eating at the hotel is fabulous too. I had breakfast there twice, one lunch (they have 30-minute lunches too) and a dinner. All the food was very good to exceptional. Just two things that bugged me about this stay - the shower is complicated. I recommend trying it at night so you're not standing there naked trying to figure out 1) how to turn the shower on and 2) how to move the controls to get hot water. There is a small sign (no glasses) by the faucet on how to get the hot water - but really taking a shower shouldn't be so complicated. The second thing is that while it's nice to keep the hotel looking historic the desk - and chair made working at the desk hard with the historic chair lower than a desk chair should be. I got a bad crick in my neck from my arms having to reach too high. Rolling desk chairs work best for business travelers. If and when I come back, I'll choose to stay here again.

This is a great place to stay! We will be staying here again for sure. We regularly travel to North Carolina from Michigan. On our way home we stop for an overnight break. We have stayed in the area several time before but never here. This will be our new stopover place for sure!

Had drinks & dinner in the bar. For over 2 hours a well connected “good ol boy” with his two sycophants was yelling, laughing & dropping “f-bombs” among other words at the top of his lungs. Twice, waitress’s apologized to me for his behavior. I complained to the bar/restaurant manager, she of course hadn’t heard a thing... the hotel manager didn’t hear a thing either. I’m not a prude but this was ridiculous. Apparently this type of behavior is acceptable at “the best hotel in Parkersburg”.

Generally stay in one of the major chain hotels when visiting relatives in the area and decided to try staying here and was so glad we did. Outstanding customer service, clean beautiful rooms and great restaurant and bar on-site mean we will be back for another stay when we return.

Nice hotel in downtown Parkersburg, WV. They are very intent on providing great service. Prior to and after your stay. The third floor has a business center and a center lounge area to relax in. Nice historic building.

From a beautiful room, delicious food, free valet parking, and friendly staff -- this is the place to stay in Parkersburg! I suggest you book through the hotel and not on-line for a better rate and availability.

We stayed in the William Morris suite, second floor turret. It is just gorgeous, very comfortable with has a huge shower. Love the's the only place we stay in Parkersburg. The free breakfast buffet is hot and delicious. Waffles, omelet station, great bacon, sausage, juices, potatoes and more. Spats restaurant never disappoints. We stayed last year during the Christmas tree festival and the place was just beautiful. The employees are truly helpful and always friendly. This place is a gem!
