I recently stayed here while on a business trip. Let me start by stating that the staff are very nice. This hotel boasts that it is one of Americas "Grand Hotels". It may have been back in the 20s, 30s an even the 40s. Now it is a tired and worn hotel. I have stayed in historic hotels in Yellowstone and Yosemite and they are much nicer. There is no elevator, there is no internet in the rooms, there are no even floors, the baseboards are chipped, the walls have scuffs, the door jams are warped, I found socks in my drawer, I found candy wrappers on the floor, I found several bobby pins on the floor, You hear semi rigs airbrakes going down the grade all night long, and during my stay the restaurant was closed for the season. I know for a fact that you can remodel and still stay true to the period instead of slapping yet another coat of paint on, but this requires an investment and some give darn. I would not stay again. While it wasn't horrible it did fall very short of my expectations.
