What it's like

Hotel Paisano offers much more than just a stay—it gifts you an unforgettable Texas experience in the heart of the intriguing town of Marfa. Built in 1930 to accommodate cattle ranchers and tourists, the hotel has been transformed to once again become a destination in West Texas. Enjoy Marfa's borderland culture, vista views, and oddities with Hotel Paisano as your basecamp.

Blending Wild West and unrivaled rest!

Small touches

Hotel Paisano once hosted Hollywood legends James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, and Dennis Hopper during the filming of the movie Giant. The hotel named its specialty rooms and suites after these stars to commemorate their time in Marfa. But you don't have to stay in a suite to enjoy the finest of what Hotel Paisano has to offer. There are more than 40 tastefully decorated rooms, so you're bound to find one for you. Drop by the Greasewood Gallery to see art inspired by the Big Bend region, relax in the seasonally heated pool, or simply unwind on the patio beneath the star-studded Marfa night sky.

Eat and drink

You'll find culinary treasures at Jett's Grill, Hotel Paisano's own restaurant. Indulge in favorites like the pistachio-crusted sirloin steak or the Black Angus GIANT burger for dinner, served 7 nights a week. Alternatively, you can opt for light seasonal salads and tantalizing fresh-made desserts. If you're in the mood for refreshing libations, the full bar at Jett's has you covered. Stop by during the daily Happy Hour to sip and savor specialty cocktails from a rotating menu while socializing in the lounge area, by the historic fireplace, or around the fire pit on Marfa's favorite patio.
