The history surrounding this hotel is incredibly interesting and the ghost tour is an absolute must. Ask for "Scary Mary" and you will have a great time. The stories of people having paranormal experiences including Stephen King "The Shining" and Jim Carey "Dumb and dumber" are great. Step back in time to see the workmanship and thought process of the elite in the early 1900's. Unfortunately, the hotel is sort of stuck there and walking through the halls and the rooms is both creepy and interesting with the sounds your footsteps make (an others above you). There are other lodge facilities that may be more updated, so if you want comfort, reserve a room there. The restaurant is both great and not so much. The appetizers show great imagination, but the main courses are a little lackluster as is the dessert menu. However, the Whiskey bar boasts over 350 different imported and american as well as local whiskeys. They also specialize in the turn of the century cocktails. The hotel itself would only get 3 stars anywhere else, but add in the history and the tours and I bring it up to four. For a one night getaway, this is a great option.
