Built in 1917, Hotel Vendome was originally built to help with the demand for housing in Prescott. People were moving from the East for the mining opportunities and the health benefits of the dry desert air. When the hotel was built it housed 31 rooms and 16 bathrooms for guests, stating it was "the classiest place in town" Prescott Journal Miner. People have loved the Vendome throughout the last century and in 1983 a group of investors renovated the old building . They were meticulous about the amount of preservation they did, even down to the numbers on the guestroom doors. So although you have modern amenities such as private bathrooms, air conditioning and heat, you still see all of the charm of the craftsmen woodworking, iron radiators and a few of the vintage clawfoot tubs from the past.
The Hotel Vendome is an independent boutique hotel focused on design and charm, the character of the hotel building still lends itself to relaxation and comfort for your getaway while still embracing the feel of the old west. The hotel features an upstairs veranda, a downstairs porch with seating to take in your surroundings. Some of our bathrooms feature vintage clawfoot tubs, all with showers for convenience.
Now celebrating 100 years, the hotel continues to be a favorite for both guests and locals to visit, stay and feel at home.
