This is one of the most beautiful hotels in the US. The rooms are huge, beautifully appointed with rustic decor and wonderful amenities We took advantage of the indoor pool, the local shopping and hiking the nearby trails. The spa was wonderfully relaxing. Everyone at this resort really strives to provide outstanding service. This hotel is a little pricey but... More

This lodge is something out of a Winter Wonderland Storybook. My husband and I were there with our 5 year-old daughter and it was just amazing. I don't think you can beat going in the winter during the holiday time. The decorations were beautiful. The resort itself is just amazing, from the rooms to the pools to the outdoor ice... More

Hello and we could not ask for a better title to a review than "Storybook Vacation"! Thank you and we do agree, especially during the holiday seasons that the Whiteface Lodge transform into a fairy tale like scene. Sorry we didn't have more snow for you but the good news is over the last 2 weeks we have received over... More

Stayed at this Lodge for 2 nights and wish we stayed longer!!! Beautiful property and excellent service. We used their concierge services and Kelly was excellent with providing recommendations for the things to do/restaurants in Lake Placid area. We also took advantage of ice skating ring and pool. Lodge itself is very beautiful and a perfect place to escape to... More

This place rocks! Great service, huge rooms and rustic decor make it one of a kind. So much to do at the lodge and it's all free. Bowling alley, movie theatre, skating rink, game room, heated pools, tennis courts and much more.

We stayed the weekend of Nov. 30th. The Lodge property is beautiful, located under a mile into town, where all the stores, cafes and the Olympic complex are. You pull up and valet is right there to unload and take your car. Check in was quick. Staff were polite and efficient. The lobby, 1st and 2nd floor as well as... More

The review title may contain a hint of disapproval, but that has nothing to do with the external qualities of this resort. Here are the good things and the list is long. Whiteface It is outfitted in true Lake Placid fashion (think antlers and rugged wood), the grounds are lovely, the fireplaces many and the staff friendly ( often accompanied... More

Where to begin! This is one of the finest properties we have ever visited. Here's what truly stood out: #1 The service. From the moment we opened the car door to go check in to when we sadly had to check out to go back home, we could not have asked for more. We were warmly greeted by the valet... More

This is a must do for couples celebrating a special occasion. The Lodge is so beautiful and the rooms are large, well appointed and extremely comfortable. The bar and restaurant offer wonderful atmosphere and a varied menu. I highly recommend a visit to this treasure. The spa offers lovely treatments.

I went in to my stay here preparing to be very critical. I had read some reviews, most good, some ok. With a pricetag like this place has they can't afford to slip even a little. We only stayed one night as a little weekend away. The first night we stayed in town at one of our regular spots. It... More

My boys 5 and 9 loved the pool and the games room. We loved that the boys were having so much fun, but enjoyed pretty much everything else about the place too. The lodge made me think of a modern version of the historic Chateau Montebello with its log cabin architecture, but without any of the inconveniences of a century... More
