El encanto was very pleasing esthetically. It has a rustic charm to it. Staff is very young, sweet, and tried their best. Emma was very understanding and accommodating. The air conditioner was not working in my room and he did what he could to find us another room. Unfortunately, the other room had a distinctive odor of sewer and we were not able to stay there. I spoke to the Manager the following day. She seemed understanding and tried to explain. The air conditioner in our other room was not able to be repaired so we moved to a third room.

Truly lovely hotel in an ideal location
El Encanto lives up to its name-- beyond its unparalleled location, the staff could not be more gracious and just lovely and the rooms are great. The rooftop bar *does* make for loud evenings, and the encaustic tile floors look like they could be brighter, but these are small details that did not in any way mar an excellent experience. I will definitely be back.
