Germaine and I were in Bentonville, Arkansas for work and had such a romantic time there. Bentonville is in the middle or nowhere, dead center of small town America, but don’t let that deter you.
Bentonville, is a vibing, eclectic city and the birthplace of Walmart. The city is a mix of oldschool and modern. It boasts the cutest shops, eateries and even has a town square. While there we strolled through the farmers market and stopped for ice-cream at The Spark Cafe which is part ice-cream shop, part Walmart Museum.
Where to Stay in Bentonville, Arkansas?
During this work trip we were introduced to the 21C Hotel brand which is one of the cutest boutique hotels ever. The location is part hotel, part restaurant and part museum. The brand definitely creates an experience for it’s guest.
21C Museum Hotel
21C Museum Hotel is a boutique hotel, restaurant and museum in one. I was instantly wowed by the hospitality upon arrival. We were greeted by a doorman who held the doors open and help us with our bags.
From the outside of the hotel you can see the art displays through the large glass windows of the hotel.
Once inside the lobby, there was even more exhibits to take in. The entire lobby is a museum and there is art on every floor of this hotel.
We stayed on the 4th floor in a King suite with views that overlooked downtown Bentonville. The room had huge windows hat let in a lot of light. The windows were dressed with heavy curtains that worked well to diffuse or totally block out the light.
Our room had a spacious dining area right by the window big enough to eat or work at. The room is eclectically furnished with lots of color and an Art Deco style.
The bed was super soft and the entire space white glove clean. The rooms were furnished with bathrobes and basic toiletries.
The bathroom has a light color palate with and gold accents and porcelain tile. The extra bright in mirror lighting is perfect for grooming throughout your stay.
This was my first experience with this brand and they truly impressed me. I loved it so much here that I booked with them again in Chicago. I will share a recap of that location soon.
