I recently spent a long weekend in Lake Placid, NY. I had never visited there but always wanted to see it. We stayed at the High Peaks resort. It is beautiful, the staff was extremely helpful and very pleasant, the check-in process was great. I believe they renovated in 2008, and it is incredible. While we were relaxing in our room, we were watching Home and Garden TV and my friend and I both mentioned that the bathroom in our room is something you would see on HGTV. The rooms are extremely well decorated and laid out, the have plenty of room, there are plenty of plugs, a refrigerator, plenty of lights, great view of the lake, easy to get from the parking lot to your room, service was wonderful, they have indoor and outdoor pools. We went to the indoor pool and it was great - not your typical "hotel pool." The restaurant in the hotel, "Dancing Bear" was much better for dinner than it was for breakfast. My dinner there was good - my breakfast was just OK and seemed expensive at $33 for two people! But otherwise - the lobby bar is awesome. The location is great - right at the end of Main Street and easily accessible to everything - nothing is really more than a 10 minute walk away in downtown! Highly recommend!
