We stayed here in March 2014 and this is the state of the palace at that time.
In January 2013 a tornado went through taking out huge trees which now still block some of the walking trails and remain fallen on buildings, some of them damaging and allowing rain and the elements into valuable historical treasurers. In the main palace we noticed panes missing in the stained glass window. As far as our room goes, we had a spectacular view but the bed was uncomfortable, 10" tv was not usable and no music available, no internet in room, bathroom clean but just adequate, room not sound proof (you can hear everything in the hallways). Our meal was tasty, expensive, but left me still hungry (I'm small and not a huge eater). It was nice to see and say we stayed there but it is roughing it in a run down old-world has been and very obvious that not enough funds are being spent to maintain it's star rating. Save the money and do a day visit. We stayed two nights.
