The West Baden Springs Hotel is much more than just a place to stay overnight: It's also a National Historic Landmark, built in 1902. The hotel's domed atrium spreads across 200 feet, leaving some to nickname it the Eighth Wonder of the World. Along with the 243 rooms that overlook the opulent atrium, there's also a spa and the upscale Sinclair's Restaurant, as well as a few casual eateries. Guests express awe over West Baden's appearance and other luxurious extras like access to golf courses and retail shops, plus the on-site spa, pool and fitness center and classes. You'll find the property in southern Indiana, less than 2 miles from the French Lick Resort and about 100 miles south of Indianapolis.West Baden Springs, INTripAdvisor (2138)4.5-star Hotel ClassFree ParkingFree WiFi

This resort and casino hotel is situated in southern Indiana, cuddling into a corner of the Hoosier National Forest, and is about 100 miles south of Indianapolis. There are several golf courses, a 27,000-square-foot a spa, multiple pools, a bowling alley and a 51,000-square-foot casino on the grounds. If that's not enough to keep guests busy, the French Lick Springs Resort, which also includes sister property West Baden Springs Hotel, also puts on concerts and offers hiking and biking along the nearby Buffalo Trace Trail. Still, some say the nicest thing about the resort is its peaceful milieu. Recent guests were also happy with the updated rooms (equipped with flat-screen TVs and 720-thread-count sheets), the elegant lobby and the on-site shops and restaurants. Others were interested to learn about the history of the hotel; it was originally built in 1845, with the spa wing added in 1901.French Lick, INTripAdvisor (1431)4.0-star Hotel ClassFree ParkingFree WiFi

Don't be confused by this Ameristar's name: East Chicago is actually a city in northwestern Indiana, not Illinois. Still, you're about 160 miles north of Indianapolis, and just about 30 miles from The Windy City. So, when you get sick of the slots, you can head to Chicago's Magnificent Mile and renowned museums. But guests say that you might not grow antsy at Ameristar since the service staff is so friendly, the rooms are so comfortable and the dining options are so plentiful. Rooms include marble foyers, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, minifridges and free Wi-Fi. Recent guests said they enjoyed a surprisingly pleasant stay – the area may not be the most happening but the hotel is clean and amenities are aplenty.East Chicago, INTripAdvisor (350)4.0-star Hotel ClassFree ParkingFree WiFi
