Driving into the grounds through the sign indicating West Baden Spring Hotel, Carlsbad of America you are greeted by the beautiful grounds surrounding this lovely old hotel. The large veranda has rocking chairs to watch the day go by. The valet has been moved to the back of the hotel, so upon exiting your car you walk through the amazing open atrium, courtyard that was the largest in the world until the Astrodome in Houston was built. The quiet soft light seems to drift down upon an otherworldly place. There are a few pieces of furniture placed in this huge space, but the mosaic tiles are amazing and so colorful. The entire building is curved and the craftmanship is lovely. Upon checking in we asked if they had our "Preferred Hotel" number and the front desk staff was unaware what this was? Odd..they assigned us a room looking out at the rotunda, but I prefer trees to watching people so we asked for a room on the outside. The room was large, the grounds are so beautiful, they offer tours and tea on the weekends. They have stables and a spa. This hotel has quite a fascinating history and I won't spoil it, but once it sold for $1! I did have an excellent nights sleep in this lovely spot..and that is what hotels are for!
