Located outside of the city of Ithaca, this boutique hotel was a great place to regroup after a day of tasting Finger Lake wines. We were traveling with another couple and the management placed our rooms together. Our room had a queen bed and large in suite bathroom that had a double headed shower. Our traveling companions had a king... More

After much consideration of properties from which to base our exploration of the Finger Lakes, we chose La Tourelle and are glad we did. As many travelers have discovered to their grief, picking a hotel on the basis of web sites and Internet reviews can be an iffy process. The first thing we noticed upon arrival at this hostelry was... More

We were asked by friends to meet them in the Ithaca area to tour New York wine country. Our search for an interesting place to stay led us to La Tourelle, and we're so glad it did! La Tourelle is a wonderful European-style boutique hotel and spa, set on lovely grounds on the outskirts of Ithaca. Entering the inn leads... More

We had a room in the main building with a lovely view. The staff were attentive and helpful. Our only quibble was the breakfast room is a bit small so you become aware of others waiting for tables. Great wine tasting in the late afternoon of local produce. Getting to Ithaca itself certainly needs transport. Nice town with an alternative... More

There are many pros and cons. Let's start with the positives: The location is fairly convenient (15 minutes) to Cornell and down the street from Ithaca College. There is a steak house next door that appears to have an upscale menu and is super convenient if you don't feel like driving to dinner. The rate was decent given it was... More

The best thing about La Tourelle is it's stunning grounds which the owners have landscaped beautifully, with summer-houses, ponds and plants. Perfect for a peaceful afternoon or even half an hour to chat or read. The reception area is a lovely space, with sofas, games, and a bar with local wines. These are hospitably shared in the evening. The space... More

La Tourelle was one of the most pleasant hotel experiences that we have had. Our room was charming and clean. The staff was informative and helpful. We had a problem with our car and they directed us to a great auto shop and offered to pick us up. The steam room, sauna and exercise room were awesome and the breakfast... More

Loved our spacious room on the first floor with two king beds. So nicely decorated and comfortable. Service was good and the small lobby bar was convenient. Restaurant next door was pricey but the scallops special was delicious. Loved the spa also. Would definitely stay here again.

This is our second time back. Nice place. Someone else did say ask for a balcony I agree, liked that room best. They have a nice wine tasting in the late afternoon. Very close to many wineries. Definitely have dinner at Jon Thomas right next door, excellent. Breakfast was very nice at the hotel. Rooms could use a make over... More

I can't say enough about what a great place this is! Friendly staff, great rooms, wonderful spa, outstanding restaurant and great trails nearby to hike. Suitable place for a weekend get-away, or while visiting friends and family in Ithaca!
