Robin, the manager was so sweet and accommodating. She even hooked us up at the restaurant that she also managers.

Everything was amazing especially the customer service!

Truly a step back in time. Don't expect a lot of modern amenities. The breakfast provided on the balcony in the morning was a really nice touch. The shower was a little cramped though.

For starters, ever since we first visited Old Town, I've always wanted to stay here. My wife is very superstitious, so convincing her was useless, so I just ended booking the room. She loved it however. I think it was such an awesome experience staying here. Someone on duty calls you personally to check in, and gives you instructions for when you arrive. Our guy was Victor, he was awesome and even gave us a short tour at 8pm when we arrived. Our room was a step back in time, it was just so neat. No tv's, which I liked because I'd rather enjoy the scenery and quite. In the morning, they place a table cloth on the small table in front each room, and serve a light breakfast. It's truely refreshing to have such a personal experience. Sitting on the balcony, sipping coffee and watching the small town wake up was awesome. The night of the arrival, we took the 5 minute walk over to Casa Reyes, our favorite spot. Overall, loved it, already looking to book again.

The food was delicious and not over priced. The outside dining area and bar was a great experience it was clean and really sets the mood, the staff was nice and helpful plus the complementary breakfast was delicious and fresh

Loved that it was in the state park, designated parking, personal tour upon check in, the historic furnishings, walk across street to Amtrack/Bus terminal, all for a reasonable price!

The room was full of cool antique furniture. Unfortunately, the room smelled like a thrift store as a result--but I got used to it. I would stay there again.

NOT the quietest hotel, but very unique and historical. Extremely clean and quaint rooms and very friendly staff! No TV's in rooms so you can hear the train horn and people walking by often. No other place is like the Cosmopolitan though if you're looking for something different and special!

Great service and property charm. Historical property and area were the reason we stayed here. Excellent staff and service. We will definitely stay here again. Only con is that the area is laud with freeway noise.

Friendly and helpful staff. They even met us at about 2:00 am to let us in as our flights were delayed. Fun environment and unique hotel,

Mimimal amenities. Historic. Very basic...no TV...no phone... Very nice restaraunt

This room is suppose to be hunted. I didn't get that feeling although the wife did even to the point that she felt like she was pushed during our breakfast.

Even though I live in the area, I've always wanted to stay at this hotel. Loved the historical significance, décor and ambience. Room was comfortable. Furnished with antiques including the pull chain toilet which worked perfectly, and a modern shower with rain head that was awesome. Balcony outside room overlooked the plaza and other historical buildings of Old Town. A/C worked very well. There was the sound of a train horn a few times and some traffic noise from the freeway in the distance but otherwise generally quiet. If you want to experience a piece of history and be right in the center of Old Town, this is the best place to be.

If you're looking for a unique experience this is the hotel for you. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff welcomes you and yours your room. Take the time to read the journal in the room about past guest experirnces. Our room had a giant 40 gallon copper tub - fabulous! Period decor is nice and rooms are clean. We knew there was no TV which gave us ample reading time during our stay. Great wifi connection but not enough electrical outlets in all areas of room. Also wish there was more variety at continental breakfast. I would definitely recommend and would stay again.

My husband and I love the Cosmopolitan. Not only is it our most favorite hotel of all time, it is also out favorite restaurant. Not only is it beautiful and masterfully maintained, but the food is incomparable and is only matched by the perfect and thorough service of both hotel, restaurant, and bar staff. They have the most enchanting music playing every night and this historic hotel is set in such a romantic and culturally rich location. Our favorite couples room is room #1 with its huge wooden bath that fits 2!
