It was good to get away and relax. 50 min couples massage was great. I would recommend the spa to anyone who is needing to get away to relax. Hotel was nice and staff was friendly. Clean rooms and room design was good. Hot water was not the great but okay.

Then, we stayed on the 5th floor (most haunted) and got royal treatment from Deby, out hostess up there. We then went on a ghost tour with Jay,our guide, he... More

This 1888 hotel is unique and has hosted many presidents. Very comfortable beds. Spa and grotto is very nice. Restaurant had a lovely breakfast. Elevator is small and there was no one to help with luggage.

I traveled for a friend's wedding. The accommodations were very lovely. This was a lovely site for a wedding. All services were superb! In addition, the local town and the area have interesting history and natural springs. The wedding schedule did not give me time to enjoy the natural springs. I plan to return just for the natural springs and... More

Spa was great. Ghost tour was great. Lots of weddings made the place kinda busy but the staff was awesome. Room service breakfast was hot and tasty. Bloody Mary at 88 was the best I've had in a while. Only negative was the stains on the suite floor. It's time to replace the carpets.

Spa services and Grotto were excellent. The hotel has a historic feel and charm. The only detractor is the quality of food at the hotel resturant. Very sub par. Staff in hotel and spa was friendly and professional.
