Views are not a marketed feature of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star American Club, but since its grounds are considered a botanical garden, all rooms overlook either lush interior courtyards or the tree-lined, natural exterior. Guests can gaze into one of four different courtyard areas. The Gazebo Courtyard has a small rotunda encircled by annual beds and café tables; The Fountain Courtyard is decorated with the “Scarf Dancer” statue that stands amid annuals and perennials; The Lantern Courtyard offers the privacy of Scotch pines for adjacent guest rooms; and The Prairie Woodland area contains native plants of the Midwest alongside a stream. Guests can ask the staff at the front desk for a museum-style info wand, which will give you detailed facts about the Kohler Gardens.
