The room prices were reasonable considering the fame of this hotel and its attraction as a historic resort, fascinatingly huge and borderline gaudy. Nice staff, willing to help, upgraded my room, took me on a tour. Watch out for the costs! I had a baked potato to go for $12 (first they charged me $17, and the maitre d' saw my point and dropped the cost, though the server would not). You really need to budget a lot of money for your stay to dine there three meals of the day. I did not like the room, felt like I was in a cubicle in a warren of rooms, insufficient light. I am sure it is WONDERFUL at Christmas with so many activities and great for vacationing families. As a business solo, well, it wasn't my cup of tea. And it's fascinating for its size, a classic. I was upgraded to a big cottage, so nice of them to do this. The bathtub water came out rusty brown for a while, that was disconcerting. All in all, it's a grand dame of hotels and one for the vacationing family with money to spare.
