I would rate this "hotel museum" as "very good" or even "excellent", except that they allow no photographs, even without flash.
The old hotel, in the heart of Georgetown's business district is, however, worth a visit. The tour guide presented a very nice tour, albeit with a hint of "attitude". The hotel is quaint, and many of the items within are absolutely authentic. It has been well maintained all these years, and you really get a sense of what a luxury hotel was like back in the late 1800s in the West.
Be a little careful on the stairs -- quite narrow, both in terms of the steps and the width.
You get to visit a sort of parlor where businessmen often displayed their wares, the dining room and kitchen (very interesting), the upstairs guest rooms (only one floor of guest rooms), and even the cellar!
Louis Dupuy was an interesting character, and you learn a bit about him. Then, if you drive south on the old road (past the lake), you will eventually come to the cemetery, and if you wander around a bit there, you'll happen upon his grave -- sort of in the middle between the upper and lower part of the cemetery, along the main path, in the aspens.
Quite a few people went into the hotel lobby, but then walked right out. Too bad, they missed an interesting tour (except for that photography policy).
