Surrounded by the huge Southwest desert and mountains, Marfa, Texas, offers visitors a glimpse into old West. Renowned for its arts community, Marfa attracts visitors from all over the world. Guests can select a stay at one of the city's diverse hotels each with a different style. Whether you favor a traditional Texas retreat or a modern respite, Marfa is the perfect spot that will leave guests glad they stopped by for a visit.

Hotel Paisano

Hotel Paisano, an 80-year-old two-story white limestone building with a red tile roof, awaits visitors in the heart of Marfa. The cast of "Giant" stayed there in 1955 during the filming. It is a small hotel with 33 rooms and suites. Years of restoration preserved its rustic wooden beams, Texas tile, marble floors, a reading room and lounge with a stone fireplace. All rooms have wrought iron balconies and many overlook a heated swimming pool that is an ideal spot to relax. Its ballroom accommodates parties up to 100 guests.

In 2005, Conde Nash Traveler Magazine called the Thunderbird Hotel a "24-room oasis." The renovation turned the 1959 motel into a blend of West Texas flavor and modern design chic. Each room features a queen-size bed, a flat screen TV, recessed lights and a custom-made wood table. The motel's laid-back style focuses on total relaxation for guests and is pet-friendly. An outdoor pool with a large fireplace takes the chill off the desert wind. Native landscaping gently surrounds the motel. It offers package deals for holidays and special occasions.
