“Already to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Took our two grandchildren this past week-end to enjoy the festival of lights. This was our first time to see the beautiful lights in this area, and we were all amazed at how spectacular they were. It certainly made you feel the Christmas spirit. Girls loved the ice skating rink and carnival at end of tour. Of courst the fire pit and toasting marshmallows was also a big hit. The tour was arranged so that it flowed very smoothly. Had stayed at Lodge two yrs ago for fall wedding, so was used to the layout. as they say, first impressions are so important and the girls at check-in was great!Ms Kim(I think) was so very cheerful and fun to talk with. Gave good advice for us making the most of our light tour. Came back and enjoyed a late dinner at Bullfrogs with another excellent employee. Though despite being late, she was so pleasant and helpful with menu. Again, we were so pleased with breakfast staff next morning. Large variety to choose from and an omelet/egg/waffle station cooked to order. we also had a very comfortable room with great beds and pillows. Always enjoy the decor of the lodge. That fireplace makes for a very relaxing time! The only thing that would only be a small negative would be brighter lights in bathroom(especially for the ladies). Although it was a cold night we enjoyed our balcony(for a short time). View of lake was pretty through th trees. Legacy Lodge has a great staff. Everyone we came in contact with was super friendly and helpful.We are already planning on making this a yearly event.

Room Tip: I asked for a quite room and did not hear a sound all night!

September 30th, 2012 through October 3rd, 2012 we once again had the opportunity to send a group to Legacy Lodge at Lake Lanier. The consistency amazing of service, the welcoming enviroment from the time you enter the resort at the front gate until the time you leave everyone there makes sure you feel you are a welcome guest. Thank you to the Door Attendees, Front Desk, Housekeeping, Resturant which has the most awesome food and I highley recommend it, Legacy Lodge is our favorite place to come and I highly recommend it for business as well as pleasure.

I attended a conference held at this hotel. Having stayed in many hotels for various conferences, this one really impressed me. The room decor and furnishings were beautiful and showed attention to every little detail.
The meeting rooms were comfortable, the food was better than expected, and the service by the staff was excellent. We wanted for nothing, and had some nice surprises with the buffet.
Great bar and restaurant on-site. No need to go elsewhere to entertain.
Our group has already decided to hold our conference at this hotel a second time.

Great location; half hour north of Atlanta. Grounds were beautiful. Was attending a conference. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Food (buffet) was very good esp. breakfast. Nice gift shop. Staff very helpful and attentive. Recommended.

Room Tip: Stay on first floor. Reception on on third floor, and access to 2'nd floor rooms is via elevator...

Overall, I thought the conference center, including the hotel and restauarants was good. However, I have seen much, much better. The lunch and dinner buffet was disappointing. How many times do you want to be served rubberized chicken parts? Once was plenty.
The meeting rooms were adequete, but not special. In today's competitive environment, you need a small wow factor. The Legacy's meeting rooms lacked "wow".
I wish I could be kinder, but adequete is the best I can use.
Breakfast was good! There, I said a positive.

We are truly sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the lunch or dinner buffet and that the meeting rooms did not exceed your expectations. We work very hard to create that "wow" factor with our facilities and our service standards. We do appreciate your feedback as it gives us the opportunity to improve. We hope that you will come again for a return visit so that we may have the opportunity to regain your trust and patronage.

The views are fabulous....gorgeous verandas....stunning deck....fantastic service! However, the rooms are not maintained well, dim lighting, low ceilings, out of date gym, etc. Overall, this is a beautiful property that is in need of a renovation.

I just finished running a management meeting at this property and it was first class.

50 minutes from Atlanta, in the middle of nowhere, is the finest conference facilities I've used on any continent. The place has been expensively and tastefully redone....guest rooms and suites are top drawer with high quality furnishings and fittings. The Lodge, itself, has feel and views of Colorado or Tahoe (without the mountains). The event staff are total pros (ask for Wendy), the food is remarkably food and while the wine list is a tad limited, the value more than makes up for it. They can and will order in anything you like.

Meeting rooms and technology are top drawer...and amenities like sunset dining cruises on the lake...and challenging but beautiful golf course...and lots of activity opens combine for a great meeting experience. Each request was handled efficiently and courteously.

It's Ritz Carlton quality with the price tag...and with lots of open space where attendees can clear their heads.

Room Tip: There are lake view rooms at The Lodge and suites are limited there. There are many more rooms and...
