What a terrific place to come to for Christmas! It is just beautiful---from the interior decorations , its historical relevance ( and yes, there are long walks and limited elevators but that is what you expect with a hotel from the 1850's ), good shops and a small but organized and clean fitness center, nice restaurants and more.
We had a good brunch on Christmas day, the pool is terrific and historic, too and the staff was nice to us.
To top it off, it snowed on Christmas Eve and made it look so charming. Again, with snow on the 26th and made the hiking trails a challenge but worth it.
