Perfect location to walk to restaurants, shopping, around mirror lake and to Lake Placid Brewery. Front desk personnel "the best". David went over and above to insure our 13th anniversary stay was perfect. Thank you! Definitely get a room facing the lake that has a balcony. We prefer 3rd or 4th floor suites. On a clear day you can easily...

What a wonderful hotel! It's very clean, rooms are spacious and lovely, and the people who work there are top-notch. The front desk staff were helpful and accommodating with restaurant tips and giving my 4 year old markers to color with. You cannot beat the view, you are right on the lake. The pool was fun and definitely needed being...

This is a terrific choice in Lake Placid, right on the lake, walking distance to all the in-town shops and restaurants, and the Olympic center - friendly staff, clean quiet rooms. Breakfast in the attached restaurant is good and convenient. Beautiful lobby. Plenty of parking.
