A Classic American Hotel
FRENCH LICK SPRINGS HOTEL - Updated Prices & Resort Reviews (IN) - Tripadvisor
How was beautiful and had a lot of history. Rooms were very clean. Overall, there wasn't much to do on a blustery Fall afternoon except go to the casino and breathe second hand smoke. Almost everything was overpriced. The hotel was beautiful. It has been updated nicely, but you can still see the "history" in everything. The staff was very helpful.
