Reviewed yesterday NEW

For starters, I like the fact that this hotel (which started out life ca. 1967 as a Howard Johnson's) is now a privately owned & operated boutique hotel -- I get really tired of the hotel chains that all look the same. The Mark Twain is well-located in downtown -- easy to get anywhere from there. The lobby is nicely...

I was happy when I walked in the front door. Beautiful lobby that looks like an old library. I checked into the room and it was clean and well maintained. There was a minifridge and the front desk person provided me with the WiFi password immediately with me asking. I got myself put together and went down to the bar...

Great location and easily accessible from the freeway. The hotel is a great condition and very clean. Breakfast and drinks in the bar are included in the room rate, which was a great deal. And, breakfast is above average. The library in the lobby is nice. The rooms are not large, but adequate. Our reservation was messed up. We reserved...

Booked this room for a landing pad after a late nite out with the wife. Clean hotel that needs some updating. Staff was very polite and courteous. Hotel is a bit loud as i do not think the walls are very thick. Would prolly go back as the place is priced well. So all i can say is NOT BAD!

This hotel was primarily selected due to the proximity to the event I was attending and it's good Tripadvisor rating. It was a good choice. We arrived late, had an easy check in. Room was fine. Is it a brand new hotel? No. Could it use some upgrades and remodeling, yes but the staff was pleasant and the breakfast with...

I was looking for a nice place to stay, something from our usual. We came to visit our kids and it was also our anniversary weekend...I was very disappointed in the wifi, it was horrible, and the tv stations were not woman friendly. All the street noise was horrible.from the trains to the sirens.. The breakfast wasn't that great either.....

Got a great AARP rate. Didn't realize Room we booked did not have a bathtub, which I enjoy. The woman at the front desk upgraded our Room with no extra charge! Also great that we got 4 free drinks and will get a breakfast in the morning. We will definitely return. Thanks for being there for us!!

The Mark Twain is the proverbial good news/bad news story. First, the good: A very attractive lobby area with an extensive book collection (but really, who has time to read a novel when staying for a day or two?) Well-appointed rooms with decor that's fairly unique in hotels in this price range And now, the bad: Crumbs, hair, and a...

“For a quiet room pick one not adjoining another room, away from ice machine (6th & 8th floors). Rooms facing river have street noise.”

“Call and ask for a river view”

“Ask for a room that isn't directly next to a busy street. Its an old hotel and not very sound proof.”
