A very unique place to stay. Lots of local attractions and restaurants within walking distance. It was entertaining to listen to conversations from the room adjacent to us. Unfortunately we were trying to sleep and the walls are very very thin.. We wanted to stay in the Pullman cars but they were being renovated.. Maybe next year..

Looks like a train station with different cars acting as businesses (bar, escape room, etc.). Food on property was very good.
