Expensive rates for the location
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.

Condé Nast Traveler


This circular, one-of-a-kind domed-atrium property in rural Indiana — 'it's an architectural marvel in the middle of nowhere' — was once a Jesuit seminary. Accommodations come with embroidered silk bolsters, artwork created from vintage postcards, and Egyptian-cotton sheets; one-bedroom suites have iron beds and leather-topped tables.
