Just came back from a fantastic stay at the American Hotel. This Hotel is so so beautiful and so clean. We slept so comfortable, and ate the most delicious food at this hotel! From the time we first walked in we felt so welcomed. We felt like home. The staff at this hotel like, Austin and Drew were fantastic. I...

I had the best night of my life at American Hotel. Walked in to meet a friend for a drink and we spent almost 4hrs there! I had the hotel's Martini which was perfectly made. I ordered the steak salad and the meat was so tender and delicious. The dessert was crème brûlée (my favorite) and it tasted exactly the...

Perfect spot for a nearby (from Syracuse) get away with a good friend. Upon arrival we were welcomed warmly by staff and given a suggestion for lunch while we waited for our spa appointment. I booked this package with spa with a girlfriend and we both enjoyed the scenery and relaxing, laid back feel. Upon returning from our treatments we...

Landed here for business. Was not prepared for how beautiful the area would be. The hotel is this cool old colonial style house. I guess they don't man the office during the week. They stuck our keys in an envelope on the front door - because it's such an out of the way place - it didn't matter. But it...

Extremely disappointed,.Particularly with lobster chowder, $$$$ plus smallest portion. All meals were marginal. Overrated now been there in the passed. Suggest trip advisor reconsider its rating. Plus it was a 50 mile trip.

We had an amazing experience at the American Hotel last night. We Went to Sharon Springs to look around. We were visiting the area with friends for the weekend. While the wives did some shopping the husbands headed over to the American Hotel for a drink. They had a great time at the bar with George and when the wives...

I booked the spa package which was amazing. It included two 60 minute massages at the neighboring Spring House Spa (note: you need to set up your spa appt.) It also included a four course dinner and breakfast. Both meals were open to anything they had to offer on the menu. I was pleasantly surprised because many package deals have...

My husband and I chose the American Hotel based on reviews (and I didn't want to stay in a traditional B&B when we went to the Book Village in Hobart) and the 5 star reviews here didn't do the hotel justice. We only stayed one night about two weeks ago but now I wish we had stayed for at least...
