Beautiful clean hotel. Get a balcony lake view over looking beautiful Seneca lake and the marina. Staff was very nice and accommodating. Food at restaurant was very good. Nice sitting out by fire out and talking to friendly guests. Overall great experience.

The hotel surprised me at every turn. The typical accomodations in the area are B&B's or Inns, so I made the misguided assumption that the Harbor Hotel might be "stodgy." The hotel was casual in the best sense of the word. The room layout was very well thought out for comfort and convenience. Early morning coffee service in the hallway... More

I've stayed at other hotels in the area when I visit the beautiful and spiritual Farm Sanctuary. My only complaint was there were no bellman to be found so you had to carry your own bags. So strange since it's a 4 diamond property. They need to invest staff greeting you at entrance and taking your bags. The rooms are... More

The Hotel is great , the rooms are large and clean. My issue is with the services, if your are out enjoying the great outdoor patio be prepared to wait, the staff rarely came out to check on you... The food was good it just took awhile..

We have tried to get reservations to this venue before but it was always booked. We LOVED beautiful room, with wood floors (not carpeting - very nice) nice views, etc. The breakfast was wonderful! The staff was wonderful (except the female bartender at the bar both nights - not very friendly or welcoming at all) We left because of her... More

Worth every penny! My husband travels regularly for work. Usually when we go somewhere together we use hotel points (for a chain hotel) but we splurged on this hotel and I'm so glad we did. It was fantastic!! All of the little things make a difference. And the view is gorgeous. Room service was great too.

We have been traveling to the Glen to race for many years, and we were thrilled when this beautiful new hotel opened a few years ago. We have stayed several times now. Fantastic rooms, great restaurant, and stunning views of the lake from our balcony. We love the fire pits out back overlooking the lake, its a great place to... More

This hotel is fabulous! I can't begin to describe the quality and excellence. Other hotels should take note - the staff is serious about guest comfort and the immaculate rooms are superb! Great view from any room, luxurious towels and sheets, very comfortable and peaceful, relaxing rooms! This is everything a hotel ought to be!

My wife and I loved this place. Room was luxurious, view was stunning, bed was comfortable, bathroom clean and beautiful, and we loved it. Make sure you talk to the concierge about stuff to do.

My husband and I spent just one night at this beautiful hotel recently, but I wish I would have stayed longer. We made a last minute decision solely based on AAA's 4 star review and were not disappointed. The hotel is fairly new, immaculate on the outside, and so beautiful on the inside. We had lunch on the patio overlooking... More
