Big, beautiful. Great outdoor pool, skating rink, snowshoeing. Great breakfast by the fireplace. Staff helpful. Great cross country skiing nearby. Loved the bowling alley on hotel. Location a bit away from town.

A beautiful hotel and resort in lake placid. The room was great, clean and beautiful. The staff are professional and friendly. What I like most here is ice skating and I enjoyed it. And the food was delicious and great!

Fabulous winter get-a-away. My teenager ,10, and 9 year old enjoyed the old fashion hockey game at the on-site rink. One of our favorite memories is one of us relaxing in the heated outside with fresh falling snow blanketing the areas around us. Also significantly delightful was our suite...we loved coming in after skiing or touring the olympic venues to... More

This hotel is pricey but so very worth it. It is on par with The Breakers in Palm Beach and Four Seasons hotels, albeit in a different setting with a different type of atmosphere (lodge like). While many hotels have the big things right (accommodations, location, etc.), it is generally the smaller things that make a stay truly special. This... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Whiteface Lodge. Not only did they work hard to rebook our vacation (after mistakenly booking the wrong week!) but the staff and accomidations were beyond out expectations. Great Food, Great drinks, lots to do at any moment. Good for a romantic getaway or fun filled for a family retreat. We loved it here... More

You'd have to really look to find fault with the WFL. Loved our visit. The staff is amazing. We did it all - ice skated, used the pool, hot tub, movies, you name it. Great place. LOVED the heated floor in the bathroom. Doesn't get better than that. And the cookies are to die for. Don't turn down the turn... More

The cookies with turndown service were so nice. My daughters loved the ice rink. The outdoor setting was just beautiful and the hot cocoa in the yurt was... More

Whiteface Lodge is a gem. We fell in love the minute that we walked into the adirondack camp style lodge. One floor up is an incredible dining room with floor to ceiling windows that overlook Whiteface Mountain. The lodge has a wide array of activities for both families and couples. We have vacationed here in both summer and winter. With... More

Overall a really nice hotel - great staff and well run. Only had very minor issues with customer service that really didn't affect the overall experience too badly. From the first contact with the valet/doorman to check-in and all interactions (save one) were excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend staying here. We had a large family gathering (10+) with...
