Went to see the Christmas decorations of the train, lobby, and the skating rink. The large tree was beautiful with kids singing carols and Santa entertaining all the kids with pictures. Train was decked out in Christmas colors.

Mostly just a hotel with a train in back that you can’t see in. The shop out back was good. They were putting up Christmas decorations when we were there on a cold Nov day.

The train cars are a hotel with a bar, but everything appeared to be in sad shape. There are some attractions - a comedy club, restaurants, an escape room - but nothing of real interest to make this a destination. The only shop featured a...More

The old terminal, coffee shop, and guitar museum were all nice. However, we were a bit shocked at how ran down the actual hotel was. We almost asked for our money back, but we stuck it out. The carpet, paint, and overall upkeep was in...More
