If you’re one for Art Deco décor and Titanic era ships, you will love this hotel. The ship itself is immaculate and the staff was very friendly throughout my stay. A must see is without question the Engine Room which is very easy to miss. To get to it, go to the elevators at the entrance of the hotel (not on the ship) and get off on the second floor; then follow the stairs to the aft quarters of the ship. Present your hotel card and you’re good to go, there’s a huge exhibit hall full of information about the ship and a stairway leading to the engine room; allot some time to peruse as it is massive.
Take note, food and drinks are very expensive on the ship. Be prepared to drop anywhere from 6 to 8 bucks for a beer and at least 20 bucks for a meal. As well, if you're planning to leave the ship be sure to pre-pay for parking when you check in. Then you can swipe your room card in the parking exit/entrance machines and be free to go at anytime.
Finally... this ship IS without question haunted. Don't freak if something happens.
