Six of us stayed at the Jerome Grand Hotel this past weekend. The hotel has been amazingly restored and the hallways are filled with old pictures, old hospital stuff like wheelchairs, operating equipment, and period furniture. The front desk guy was very friendly, checked us in early afternoon before we caught the Verde Canyon Railroad trip. The rooms are small, but adequate and the room rate is very reasonable. The bathroom in our room was updated. Nice fluffy towels and crisp linens on the bed. Speaking of the bed, ugh.....way too soft, could not sleep and woke with a back ache. The restaurant was small and cozy, varied menu but a bit pricey!! Good food, nice wine list, friendly bartender and host. The views from the hotel and the restaurant patio are awesome. Definitely lots of photo ops from this height. We had been to Jerome about 20 years ago and the town has definitely grown since then. A lot more of the buildings have been restored and more hotel and cafe options than before, which is good news for the tourist industry. Personally, I would not stay here again because of the bed, but I would recommend it to others and it is a good base location for day trips in the area. So come enjoy our beautiful state of Arizona!
