The first time I visited Nauvoo, my family stayed at a large-chain hotel in Keokuk because we didn't know any better. My wife and I stayed in the honeymoon suite when we were married a year ago (and my family stayed in one of the larger suites), and just spent our first anniversary there as well. We absolute love it and have decided that we're going to try to make it an annual tradition. We love the history, the artwork, the staff that treats you like old friends, and just about everything else. The suites for larger groups are also a great value - 1000x better than booking multiple rooms at some chain.
