Abundance of on-site activities available
Fairly remote location
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.

The lobby, with ceiling frescoes, is truly beautiful. Once a popular spot for its three mineral springs, this hotel had its own train station. The historic charm and ambiance has been maintained.
