A delightful small hotel nestled in a 1948 building, the Bristol not only has location working for it, but also old-fashioned personalized service. Situated right downtown, it is surrounded by shops and restauarants, and it has an immediately inviting lobby, with a fireplace and bookshelf. The staff goes out of its way to recommend local sights and dining, and although the Western-style decor is a bit faded, the rooms are well kept and tidy, if a bit cramped. Families
and groups will appreciate the special family-style rooms, which offer four people the ability to stay in two rooms connected by a bathroom for about $45–$55 more per night.
