Looking for something different to do? Wandering through the mansion on O street, looking for secret doors and hidden staircases, spotting thousands of cultural objects, icons, nick nacks and schlock is unlike anything you've ever done before!! I felt like Alice in the looking glass as I wandered around this wonderfully eccentric hotel and display rooms. The self guided tour...

I knew that my girlfriend would love the Mansion, and she had never been, though I told her about it late last year - after I had gone there for an office function (ok...Party) I booked us a room for a Saturday night, specifically so we could do the brunch/tour the next AM. (also to celebrate our anniversary!) We also...

This is the best place I have ever stayed. Vibrant, fun, magical, spotless. But most important the food was five star (I had baby lamb chops for dinner -- yum!) and an orgasmic chocolate dessert. And I haven't slept so long -- ever. I travel over 200 days a year, so I know what the best is. I wish The...

Didn't stay at the hotel but a local friend took us here for a surprise Halloween weekend brunch. We had a great time exploring this mystery Mansion on O Street with its many weird rooms, secret doors and Escher-like staircases, not to mention scads of old-time art, music memorabilia and other untold oddities. To add to the eccentricity, there was...

Spent 3 nights here. Booked online but kick myself for not reading more reviews. When we arrived we entered though the basement and I thought I was in the wrong place. Every inch of the entire place is literally packed with "stuff". While it it interesting to explore 4 floors of clutter, after a while you begin to wonder what...

The Mansion on O Street is a very different kind of venue. I went for a concert and it was a great time. If you are the type of person to be easily overwhelmed, this is not the place for you. There is "stuff" everywhere. Some of it is worth a good look.... Signed guitars, interesting art, however, some of...

These are five adjoining houses. Many stairs, secret passages and so on. Bedrooms in many themed styles with some over the top bathrooms. Yes, all the decorations were for sale. Do see the chandeliers on the main level. A fun walk through I did not stay there or eat there.

I really wanted to put this behind me , but as time has passed I feel it necessary to place my honest feelings about this place.

With our themed rooms and secret doors we are a very unique property. Different from your ordinary hotel we provide a fun, engaging experience — not just an over night stay. That said, we know we won’t appeal to everyone. We would never charge for anything that has not been agreed upon in advance. Like every hotel we have check-in...
