“A Beautiful Place to ReLax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2004

The Athenaeum Hotel is a quaint hotel located on Lake Chautauqua. I have stayed there a few times for a quiet getaway. The rooms are that of an attractive old inn with updated conveniences. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Lake Chautauqua is the perfect getaway for couples, families and those that want to have time to themselves.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2003

We stayed here in July 2003 for the fourth time. The nicest thing about the hotel is the service. Everyone from the check-in staff to the waiters to the valet just bent over backwards to be courteous and helpful. Really special. The rooms themselves are Victorian style and authentic...this means you have to cope with small bathrooms, sloping floorboards, etc. But this is the experience we wanted. Really, we would stay anywhere just to be on the grounds of Chautauqua. It's a magical place and well worth the time/money.
