Cool hotel with an artsy vibe. Loved the Saturday night jazz.

We always love staying at The Oxbow. It is conveniently close to Phoenix Park, the 'old downtown' and good restaurants - many area businesses were closed when we visited Christmas Eve/Day, but the Oxbow's staff were very friendly and accommodating, had a nice breakfast and coffee available in the morning, and offered very good service.

This was the most friendly staff I've ever seen. You can see they put a lot of thought in designing the place. They moved me from the first room (due to street noise) with no problems and when the trip was cut short they refunded the rest of the days. No question asked. I kind of miss them. I just struggled with WiFi. Every hour I had to go to the lobby to let the router give me an IP address. After an hour in the room I'd be kicked out. If you are a light sleeper like me take a room in the top floor and away from the street. The people above room 21 decided to recite the Broadway show "Stump" at 6 AM. My only suggestion is that they work a bit on the Breakfast :)

Unique old town feel. Great location downtown. Relaxing place to stay.

Great property unique. All around a positive experience and stay. We will be back!

once we found it, the property was right down town and quite nice. It was a very pleasant stay. The shower floor had mold on the tile joints.

Very nice staff, they have a cool jazz band at night, really good tea and coffee for free and a record player and you can choose your record, really cool room style too. But the room wasn’t the cleanest and the bathroom was dropping water from the fan , and you can hear your neighbors which is really bad.

Quiet stay for Christmas Eve but lovely morning coffee time with friendly Tristan at the front desk. We love the location and facilities here...our second holiday stay!

Great hotel right downtown, with unique touches that make it stand out.

The hotel was great, bed was great only thing is the shades on windows were not great to block out the sun

The Oxbow is a great place to stay unlike any hotel I have every stayed at. Every room has a record player and all guest have free access to the music library at the hotel. The restaurant is top notch with a great selection. Its great to stay at a place that brings in local artist and craftsmen to decorate. Rooms are very nice I booked on orbitz and only paid $110.00 a night. Next time I'm in Eau Claire I will defiantly by staying at the Oxbow.

Great spot centrally located in Eau Claire. Friendly staff and very nice, unique touches like a record player and record rentals, well stocked snack bar featuring locally made goods, and other artistic touches. Highly recommend staying at The Oxbow.

Great! We enjoyed it. Wish coffee was available in rooms though.

Unique maude place to stay. Nice bar restaurant attached.

Very clean hotel with a very "hipster" vibe to it. The staff was very friendly and had a nice bar/restaurant connected. Would highly recommend!

Excellent venue with a nestalgic flair. Good selection of records and record players in all rooms. Clean and comfortable room with quality bedding and linens. Saff was friendly and professional in the hotel and restaurant. The meals are well thought out down to pre-warming cups for coffee.

A new twist on a renovated property, the Oxbow offers comfortable rooms with many extras. The in house restaurant is outstanding! Meal selections are unique and tastey. The staff were warm and hospitable. We especially appreciated that our stay included a welcome to our pet as well. This new hotel is awesome!
