The hotel has retained its grand ambience through its many extensions. Today, it offers a spectacular setting that comprises a man-made lake, a championship golf course, a full-service spa and 17 restaurants and bars. One of its unique features is the extensive Western art collection that is displayed throughout the property. Luminaries who have stayed here include John D. Rockefeller, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Clark Gable.
