First off, it's Big Spring, so I kept that in mind before I visited. They failed even those expectations. Approaching with a child and elderly mother in tow, two valets let me struggle to hold my bags and open the door for myself. The staff then charged me the wrong rate. It took over thirty minutes for the person at... More

It blows my mind that this place is allowed to exist. It's good on an international level, coming from someone with extensive travel background both for work and pleasure. If this was in Singapore I would still give it a 5. It boasts large sunny rooms, enormous bathrooms, a pool that is actually useful even if the temperature drops at... More

Wow! We were pleasantly surprised to find this gem in Big Spring, Texas. They have done an incredible job of restoring this hotel to grandeur. Our standard room was spacious, comfortable and lovely. There was a ceiling fan above the king bed, which was a nice touch. There was also a Keurig in the room. We ate a delicious breakfast... More

Travleing to the Permian Basin? Are you a self-described sophisticated traveler? Well, this is the one and ONLY place to stay! The Settles, reopened for about three yrs, is a meticulously restored dowager that both shines and evokes the glory days before the great depression (which came right after it was opened originally). Hats off to the family that pulled... More

We noticed this hotel as we drove to Colorado last summer and changed our plans for our trip back to check it out. We were so impressed with it we came back for the weekend the next time we had a get-away weekend. Everything was top notch again - we had a wonderful stay!

We always stop here on our way back from New Mexico back to central Texas. Worth the drive. Rooms are consistently clean, bathrooms are huge. The lobby is majestic, the lobby bar is friendly with a wide selection of spirits, and the restaurant serves great food.

This historic old property has been restored to a status that, no doubt, exceeds its former glory. The rooms are great, the place is very comfortable, and the whole experience is delightful. If you are anywhere near it and need a place to stay, it's worth the effort.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Originally opened in 1930, Hotel Settles has been restored to reclaim its place as the social center of West Texas. This historical art deco oasis serves as the towering centerpiece of downtown Big Spring, approximately 30 miles from Midland. Extensive renovations using the building's original blueprints have brought back the stylish details that evoke the charm, craftsmanship and architectural details of a bygone era. Hotel Settles welcomes guests with true Texas hospitality and a touch of relaxed elegance, from the opulently restored Grand Ballroom and Lobby to its 65 comfortably appointed guest rooms. The Settles Grill offers delicious Texan comfort food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a private dining room for up to 20. Pharmacy Bar & Parlor mixes classic cocktails and extensive beer and wine offerings with both a lively bar area and a quieter, more relaxed parlor section. An outdoor retreat with swimming pool and a fitness studio round out the choices for true relaxation. ... more   less
