We booked two rooms the end of June and traveled with two teenagers. The hotel is wonderful. Lots of history and a great book on the history of the hotel is available in the gift shop, but the $ price tag is a little steep. The meals on the terrace are very good and reasonably priced. Hotel staff was very accommodating and attentive. The hotel is within walking distance of the Hot Springs and downtown restaurants. The Hot Springs are great and we could have spent several days there. Buy the ticket that includes four or eight trips on the waterslide, but be sure to check when the slide closes. It's usally before the pool closes so you can't leave and come back late at night to use the last of your slide tickets.My only complaint was that the rooms in the hotel are not air conditioned and it was very hot. Staff found us fans, but they were of little benefit.
