We just stayed for two nights at the Watkins Glenn Harbor Hotel. We have visited the Finger Lakes region for years and have finally landed on a place we can't wait to return to. The hotel is new, very well-appointed and, most importantly, staffed by a great group of employees. We warmly greeted at reception. On the elevator, one of...
