If you like historical, authentic places, then this is the place to stay. This is not a hotel that was built to look like a historical place - this is actual history that you can stay in. I don't understand the people who whine about the quirks of the building/fixtures, etc. When this place was built, that's how things were back then. So, if you want fake, then hop on over to a theme park and take in all the plastic you can handle. If you want real, then enjoy this wonderful place. By the way - we stayed with our kids in the Captains Suite. It wasn't scary, but I did feel like some type of presence was in there with us. The hairs on the back of my neck stood up a lot especially in the hall near the bathroom. Cool!
