“Historic and Classy retreat”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

I spent a weekend here for a girfriends birthday celebration. The renovation is stunning and the rooms are nicely renovated. Yes, the rooms may be a bit small but there is no reason to dwell in your room at this resort. We enjoyed a spa day, a day by the pool and an evening out for dinner. The live music everywhere was a pleasant surprise. Sitting and rocking on the massive from porch with a glass of wine which a piano was playing was pure heaven for us. French Lick is a step back in time. We enjoyed our stay.

Our first visit was last weekend. Love the layout of both properties (West Baden). Great architecture and history.

Friendly and helpful staff. Our entire party commented time and again how impressed we were.

Convenient shuttles that take you to either property or up to Hagen's restaurant (located at a high end golf course about a couple miles away). All shuttles free.

Spent time at a craft fair going on across the street. Walked the town and checked out different shops. Hit the winery for a couple bottles.

Food choices were limited on site.

Really enjoyed a relaxed weekend. 2 days here was plenty, but I would definitely go back.

After a very bad experience in Nashville Indiana (though no fault of that adorable little town) we were looking forward to our visit to French Lick though with some trepidation. I had always kind of imagined this grand old resort as a museum with crusty old people lining up for dinner. Oh my was I pleasantly surprised.

Yes there is quite a bit of age in the old lady yet she still stands strong. From the grand lobby to the understated room all was really perfect. We could have spent days just sitting in the many crooks and crannies on the well appointed furniture just marveling at the architecture.

The food options are somewhat limited but still fine. We ate at Hagens and had a very nice meal. The Power Plant and the breakfast buffet at the Colonades were also very good. Maybe not unbelievably great but certainly more than serviceable.

I suppose there is a price to pay for all this amazing restoration and that would be the slot machines at the casino. Shew those things are tight. Way tighter than Las Vegas.

You would be a fool not to take one of the free shuttles to West Baden to see that amazing place as well.

All in all what a great honeymoon! I wish we had had the time to spend more time there.

This hotel is a restored time-piece from the early part of the 20th century. At one time, visitors came to partake in the mineral waters and relax. That is still possible, the spa here was great. Pool service was fine, accompanied by a local band. We dined that evening at Sinclair's at an associated hotel in West Baden, just a mile or two away. It's architecture is magnificent and we are likely to stay there next time.

My son and I enjoyed a recent stay at this hotel. There are plenty of things to do for children (bowling alley, arcade, laser tag and mini golf just down the road). The food was a little pricey but you can find several options off property that will work with any budget.

My only complaint is that I left a note to not throw out my breakfast (I wanted to save the danishes and muffins for an afternoon picnic & we had barely touched anything) and upon my return from a quick trip downstairs, the room had been cleaned and my $33 breakfast had been thrown away. But I did not call and complain so the hotel did not have the opportunity to correct the situation.

Other than that, it was a great trip!

This facility has something for everyone! A great kids club program, beautiful pool, and amazing golf courses. Nice walking paths around the facility and the historic West Baden is right up the street.

Spent a weekend at this resort hotel and found the rooms to be attractive, clean and bright in spite of the dark wood furnishings. The standard room, which we had, was not super spacious but I heard that the suites are really big. Our bathroom was updated and roomy, too. The best part of this hotel is it's location in a beautiful countryside close to a lot of golf courses.The next best part is the wonderful and friendly staff who are determined to please you and make everything right for you. We really appreciated this! I liked the variety and quality of the buffet breakfast in the hotel (for only $12.50). But other than that, the food options in the hotel were not great--tough to eat healthy and expect limited menus with high prices. But you can find places in the surrounding area that you will like.

Room Tip: See if you can get a deal--ask about weekend packages off-season.
