          From the numerous reviews, it sounds and looks like a beautiful historic hotel but rooms are dated and housekeeping could be better. I'd love to stay here sometime late June with my two tween kids who both have dust and dander (pet) allergies to try out the mineral baths. From one review, are the first floor rooms the only ones that accommodate pets? Any tips on which rooms to stay in? When will renovations be completed? and can you reserve a private mineral bath or is this in a shared area? Since we have dander allergies as well as dust so the room really needs to be thoroughly cleaned for us.
