This is our fourth time staying at La Tourelle and it is our favorite place to stay in the Finger Lakes. Leslie and her staff make sure the rooms and hotel are extremely clean. Great beds with wonderful linens make for a good night's sleep. The owners' collection of African art add an interesting contrast to the country French decor. Check for room and spa packages on the hotel's website. The August Moon Spa offers well-appointed relaxation rooms and amazing treatments. Weekdays are less busy and a free therapeutic soak is part of any massage booked between 8-4 M-Thur. A small fitness room also provides an elliptical machine, Precor and stationary bikes, in addition to a slew of outdoor activities. Easy walking trails out back link to nearby Buttermilk Falls State Park trails and are a beautiful way to enjoy nature while getting some cardio. La Petit Cafe on site serves breakfast and lunch and the fare is satisfactory. Skip nearby John Thomas Steakhouse. Heavy food, overpriced and slightly pretentious. Opt instead for something healthier near the Commons or at Green Star Co-op. Ithaca has galleries and cultural attractions all year through and wineries abound offering wonderful choices along scenic Cayuga Lake. Would recommend this hotel to anyone heading to Ithaca for business or pleasure.
