Once called the Eighth Wonder of the World, the historic landmark boasts an impressively vast free-span dome, the largest of its kind in the world until the creation of the Astrodome in 1965. In its restored glory the dome stands 100 feet tall and 600 feet in circumference. Wast Baden has had many incarnations — grand resort, Jesuit seminary, private college, collapsing ruin, restoration-in-progress, and now again a world-class luxury resort. Visit the sunken garden with its English gardens and springs pavilions. Stay in one of the 249 luxury guest rooms and suites. Dine at Sinclair's in the hotel's original dining room.
