My husband and I recently visited, spending 4 nights on business. It is a very impressive place, decorated in an old fashioned classy sort of way. We stayed in a Jr. Suite and loved the room which faced the front entrance. Maid service was very good, in fact all the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Our first night there we experienced a power outage due to a storm and the power was out for 2 hours. We never had emergency lighting in our room, but eventually generators went on in other parts of the resort. So we just went to bed a little early.
We dined in several of the restaurants, and unfortunately found nothing too impressive. That was rather disappointing. The shops were typical overpriced hotel shops, to which we did contribute for some golf shirts and souvenirs for the grandchildren. DO the Bunker Tour, it's fascinating and worth the money. Make reservations for everything! The restaurants, carriage rides, etc. do fill up. The casino loves to take your money, we lost at everything. Our blackjack dealer made SEVERAL mistakes.
We both had massages at the Spa. I also did a pedi. It was all wonderful, including the steam room. Worth the splurge.
I did a tennis lesson, and my husband a golf lesson. Both were very good. I would do another!
I was disappointed in the "fitness center" as we'll. at least what I saw. It's kind of spread out in a strange layout in front of some tennis courts. I guess people are doing golf, tennis, etc for their fitness.
I visited the outdoor pool once. It's nice, but a little small and crowded.
The outdoors are beautiful! The flowers and landscaping are amazing if you're a photographer. If you like to walk, I suggest the Valley View trail around the golf course, 2.5 miles or so. It's awesome. I would have loved hiking up in the mountains some, for which there are trails, but i was alone and not comfortable with that.
Overall, we're glad we went, once, but would probably not make the 9 hr drive to visit again.
