2/5 Poor

The place a dirty and gross. In our room the mattress had read wine stains on the covering and the bed spring also had red wine spilled on it. Our blanket didn’t fit the bed properly and had a cigarette while in it. The floors look, feel, and smell like they are caked in years of throw up and spills. Everything needs an update here. I went to the soaking tub in the basement and the air vents had year of dust coating the metal grate. It was so incredibly disgusting. The entire time I just felt dirty. I spent a lot of my room and had to share a toilet. I would just avoid this place. Not worth the money. There are places very close by that cost less and have a toilet in the room. Other hotels near by appear cleaner. Just avoid.

I've never met a McMenamin's I didn't like. Crystal Hotel didn't disappoint! We love the flatiron shape of the building, the historic features, the artwork, the restaurant. What makes it really special is the staff and all the heart they put into their work. You guys and gals are the best!!

Centrally located, easy walking to shopping, food, events, etc. Beautiful old building. The only thing I felt needed improvement were the pillows. They were pretty flat and uncomfortable. Other than that our stay was great.
