“Worth the trip to Lake Placid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

This was our second stay at this Hotel, becuse the views from any room are good. The rooms at the front of the Hotel will give you the view of the Lake and Mountains, plus you get a balcony. You also see Mountains from the back rooms, which is fine. If you like excersize, the walk down the steep driveway to the main street, will look after that for you. The Bar and Dinning room are great, as well as all the staff. If you like to ski, the season starts at around Thanksgiving. We had snow during our stay, the first week of November. We will be back, but this time it will be in the summer, to enjoy all the activities that are available.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the Hotel are the best, to see the Lake, Mountains, and the main street, plus...

This is a good property to stay at while in Lake Placid. It sits on a hill and has great views of the area. We enjoyed sitting outside the lounge at all times of the day and night, very relaxing. Parking was further away than I prefer. If you walk to town climbing back up the big hill can be painful; we saw people of all ages stopping to rest on the way up.

Room Tip: Get a room with balcony on the lake side - you can't really lose but the first floor seems too l...

Thank you for your recent stay and review and all of your wonderful pictures. I really enjoy the first picture with the beer as the focal point with the beautiful views behind. The patio at our Great Room as you mentioned offers the best views to enjoy a beverage or a meal.

Great location with friendly staff. The corridors and rooms are a little dated and we had to air our room for a while. We paid extra for the lake view and it was definitely worth it. The bed was very comfortable and an HD tv was a plus. breakfast was plentiful and good quality with nice waitresses. Overall good value.

We were glad to hear that you enjoyed your lakeview room. Thank you for also mentioning the HDTVs as we are just finishing up the installation of the HD signal to all of our rooms to compliment the flat screen TVs that we offer in our rooms. We were also happy to hear that you received a good night’s sleep and a good start to the morning with a great breakfast.

My husband and I stayed here on our trip around New England and New York and absolutely loved it. We arrived a bit early and our room was ready and I must say this has to be one of the most spacious and comfortable rooms we have stayed in, with an absolutely amazing view over Mirror Lake and the mountains. We ordered room service for breakfast, just so we could enjoy the view. The room got lovely and warm with the fireplace and we felt so comfortable we did not want to leave. There was some sort of hockey tournament going on, but they managed to keep the section of the hotel we were in lovely and quiet.
In the evening, it was lovely to sit in the Great Room and relax with a glass of wine, or have some food. I also think the food was very reasonably priced for a hotel, some hotels feel they can charge astronomical prices.
Room service was efficient and the cinnamon French toast was delicious.
The staff were all very helpful and I would like to thank Ray for organising the room.
We are planning another trip next year and we will be back to this hotel.

Thank you for your stay and your wonderful review. I was glad to hear that you were able to have a wonderful experience on a weekend with hockey. Your picture from your room of Whiteface Mountain is spectacular and shows the beauty that can be seen from the top of the hill that we sit upon. Thanks again.

Hockey tournament weekend was much better tan expected. The staff treated the many guest with respect. Rooms were better than expected. The bar feels like a Colorado ski lodge with great views. Location is second to none. I've been doing touraments for 10 years and this was the best experience by far. Buffet was great, housekeeping very courteous to room needs.

My wife and I decided to drive from Ottawa and spend a night in Lake Placid. We had no reservations just a hotel list from the internet. No cell and internet access since we did not want to pay the roaming charges in the US just for one night.
We drove around Saranac Lake and then Lake Placid, We picked the Crown Plaza because it was removed from town but still within walking distance. It was also situated on the hillside with a view of the lake. All hotels in the area get lots of traffic from hockey team games, almost every weekend. This hotel had a section (building) where no hockey players or support persons were housed, separate entrance and this made it a quiet retreat. Sure there was partying outside but that was ok.
We had a great room with gas fireplace and a king size bed. Great view. It was a great getaway to recharge our batteries and spend some intimate time away from the 'usual".

Room Tip: Ask for lake view and also ask if they can better the price. They did for us.

Thank you for your review of your wonderful experience at our hotel and for posting pictures from your stay. You had a great explanation of staying in our Deluxe Adirondack Wing during a weekend that we have hockey tournaments in town. We do not allow hockey teams in the Adirondack Wing so you do have as Superman had a "Fortress of Solitude" to relax in and as I like how you put it "Recharge Your Batteries" Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you soon!
