We were looking for a room for one night during three days of wine tasting in the Finger Lakes. When I searched for rooms in Ithaca, most of the hotels were showing no vacancy. It wasn't until we arrived that we realized that it was the NASCAR race at Watkins Glen that was creating the shortage. We booked La Tourelle without any idea of what it would be like, but we were pleasantly surprised. The only downside was that we had to take a winding path to get there due to some bridge construction. The hotel was very informal. Someone greeted us at a small desk and directed us to our room, which was right off the "lobby." After we put our bags away, we went back out into that gathering area where a happy hour with free wine was in progress. I don't know if this is a regular custom, but it was a nice touch. Everything about the room was fine. It's large, and maybe not as soundproof as it could have been, but very comfortable. In the morning, we had breakfast in the little cafe across the lobby, and it was excellent and reasonably priced. There is a separate restaurant on the premises for dinner, but it seemed pricey, and there were better options in Ithaca.
