The hotel was nice, especially in light of the fact it had previously been a hospital many years ago. The renovations are really nice and they have made great strides to throw off the "hospital look". The rooms are quite large & spacious. The town of Jerome is a bit quirky and odd, in a good way, and this hotel fits right along with that profile, mainly because of it is history. It also has a really old elevator that was an adventure in itself. It is the old-timey kind that one has to close the metal accordion doors; pretty cool. When one arrives into Jerome, it is the most imposing building that will catch your attention and your eye is drawn to it. The views from here are great and our main objective for our visit was to participate in the ghost hunt. We were not disappointed. Chris was very accommodating & friendly. The hotel provides equipment and cameras for the hunt After the tour, the hotel will consolidate all photos taken during the your tour and sends to participants on CD; very nice touch. :) We definitely had some experiences on the 4th floor. One photo caught a very bright light anomaly that was not seen with the eye & we heard humming as well, with our ears. We did not try the restaurant.
