I was booked in a Whitney Room, the second level of rooms offered at the castle. Mine was not the one they feature on the website, but it had similar features. When I first walked into the room I saw a fireplace, it's not an active one, but it still felt like a good way to start my stay. The room had a large King bed, a sitting area opposite the fireplace, a desk, closet, full sized bathroom and 32 inch flat screen TV. Two things that surprised me, the TV was kinda small, though I doubt it's heavily used in a hotel like this and the TV didn't have HD service on them. It doesn't cost more for the upgraded cable boxes and I think the TV can display HD. Odd.

The main floor of the castle has a foyer, ballroom, large party room, several small rooms for parties, a bar and restaurant. There is also lovely grounds to walk around outside. But here is one of my biggest problems with the place, it was very stuffy. There are beautiful grounds, but no one said, feel free to take a walk outside. Every door was closed and none marked, I felt like I was sneaking around the place trying to find my way outside. I of course got outside and walked around but I felt a little funny.
