AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Pool): I love the large, domed indoor pool which has a great fountain of spouting dolphins.
Guest rooms at this massive, yellow brick 1902 hotel range in size due to the historic nature of the property, but all have superior appointments. The lobby, with ceiling frescoes, is truly beautiful. Once a popular spot for its three mineral springs, this hotel had its own train station. The historic charm and ambience have been thoughtfully maintained but supplemented with modern conveniences. Located in the center of a small town, the grounds are graced with mature shade trees, flower gardens and expansive lawns frequented by shy deer. Situated behind the hotel is a Japanese-style garden with a shallow pool and a large gazebo which encloses "The Pluto Well", a sulfurous spring that was once esteemed for its allegedly therapeutic values. The lobby is large and is decorated with intricate plaster work on the ceiling and new classical-themed frescoes. The lobby, adorned with many potted orchids, roses and palms, is studded with faux marble Corinthian columns and has the original mosaic floors. There also is an extensive variety of high-quality shops, including two art shops. Recreational facilities are extensive and include a bowling alley, skeet range and a large pool area with a central island adorned with figures of dolphins spouting water. Corridors are decorated with historic photo art of the former owner, Tom Taggart, who was the governor of Indiana. The hotel offers various kids' programs that include such activities as arts and crafts, movies and recreational activities. Smoke free premises. 443 units, some two bedrooms. 6-7 stories, interior corridors. Accessibility (Call).

Pros: The check in process was so fast and easy! No line and no hassles. They also pushed our check out time til noon so we could take our time at breakfast, we were thrilled! All our waittresses were super friendly and ON IT. Bed was huge and fluffy (:
Cons: Only reason i gave 9 not 10 star was no frig in our room for beverages, and only 1 chair at the desk and there were 2 of us so we couldnt really sit other than on the bed. Everything else was perfect.
