My husband and I spent 6 nights at Whiteface Lodge. Our Superior room was unbelievable- gas fireplace (you cannot open the fireplace doors- but you really have no business being in there anyway), tub with whirlpool, 1.5 bathrooms, small kitchenette, livingroom, and sitting porch. Maid service was outstanding- fresh chocolate chip cookies each evening. Nice plush bath robes, slept like... More

My husband and I took our youngest daughter (almost age 13) for two nights after school let out at the end of June. This was the first hotel for Lake Placid that I saw on Trip Advisor, and I did not even bother to research others. It was spectacular! The people were so welcoming.... we were upgraded to a two...

What can I say about this hotel. We loved it. Beautiful, meticulously clean, luxurious suite. Really felt like a home away from home. Everything done with a special flair. The grounds are spectacular, flowers everywhere. Cookies delivered each night with turndown service. Plenty of activities for the family. There is even an underground tunnel to the clubhouse which must be... More

Whiteface Lodge looked excellent on Tripadvisor and was even better in real life. A family of four including two adult kids ,we chose to book a one bed roomed suite which was perfectly big enough for all of us as it has a very spacious lounge with sofa bed and a adjoining kitchen if you choose to cook your own...

We are about to check out after staying here for 6 nights and we are so sad. We had an awesome time here! This hotel was all about service and attention to detail. We are frequent travelers, and I tend to be rather critical. To the point where we have requested room changes at other hotels or complained about things... More

Whiteface Lodge is everything you want in a hotel situated in the Adirondacks. The decor is all ADK, making a cozy atmosphere throughout the facility. The staff is friendly, helpful, responsive and they all want to make your stay a positive experience. The rooms are huge (we had the 3 bedroom suite), clean, well appointed. The grounds are beautiful, facilities... More

We spent 3 nights here as part of an 18 night American tour. This was the most luxurious of our stays. The junior suite was huge and very well equipped. All the staff were friendly and helpful .
