This hidden gem in Southern Indiana features a massive domed atrium lobby that rivals the grand hotels of Europe!
Set in a small town about an hour from Louisville, Kentucky, we took a detour just to stay here, and weren't disappointed. Be sure to book a balcony room for an amazing view of the atrium.
Prices are comparatively cheap for this level of hotel, no doubt because it's more or less in the middle of nowhere. Even though you can't walk out the doors to sightseeing, the hotel itself is an experience and all the natural light in the (very well heated) atrium was heaven in the middle of the winter.
West Baden Springs Hotel is part of a resort complex with another nearby restored historic hotel that offers gambling and golf, so if those are more your speed, there's plenty to keep you busy.
