    I visit regularly on business (it's a write-off!) and over the past several years the new owner's have invested a lot of money in new facilities- main building, new suites and a full-service bar/eating area. They have also slowly raised the prices, which is regrettable.

    On the other hand they have also invested in heating the buildings geothermally (it is a hot springs), and putting in solar panels for hearing and electricity. Most importantly there has been a major upgrade to the water filtration and distribution system, resulting in more water flow through the pools which keeps them cleaner, and warmer. This last change is very beneficial in my experience.

      it is still my kind of place, simply for the historical aspects (and I had first visited there in the early 1970s (so, it's historical from my point of view, I suppose). I suppose the new owner is trying to retain the old atmosphere even with renovation. Heating the buildings geothermally is also cool in an odd manner of speech. Thank you very much for posting this informative comment, US Blues. I'll have to make it a point to get up that way and soak!

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.

        It is still a place for profound healing, which is the whole point of visiting. When you are there you might enjoying visiting the big marble medicine wheel on the hill up above the Springs.
