I could not be happier with the Saint Elmo! It's location and it's clientele and its management and the beautiful balcony views and it's cleanness. It feels good to be here. (But I definitely recommend it for a more relaxed older crowd.). Did I mention that it's location is perfect for everything?

My friend recommended this condo complex for our first Chautauqua visit. It was perfect. So close to all the action, yet clean, quiet, well run building, Central Air and elevator make it great. A great Spa, restaurant, ice cream shop and boutique on the lower level. I love the balconies and porches and the front porch rockers are the best!... More

We stayed in Room 411 and it was very nice. All updated with new counters in the bathroom and kitchen. The balcony was perfect for morning coffee. The Institution is such a perfect place to visit. St. Elmo's is centrally located so walking around the Campus was easy. I would go back again.

Many of the hotels and boarding houses in the Chautaqua Institute date from the late 19th and early 20th. This hotel was rebuilt in 1995 in the neo Victorian style of many newer structures and given the name of the hotel it replaced in the site. We had an efficiency condo for the three nights we spent before the season... More

Excellent location on Bestor Plaza! Not too far from Main Gate, the Amphitheater, and the Hall of Philosophy. The north shuttle stops at the corner in case you don't feel like trudging back and forth to the Fitness Center. There is a small shop in the lower level which has sandwiches, coffee and a variety of baked goods as well... More

What a wonderful weekend get away, even on the off season at Chautauqua. Lots of places to eat off of the Institution. What a wonderful place to walk and think about nothing and know how lucky one is to be able to spend the weekend. Walking the grounds and reading a book at the Library located on the Institution.

We stayed in unit 217 for week 9. This is a two bedroom unit with a sleeper sofa. There are balconies off each bedroom and one runs the length of the condo with doors opening to it from the bedroom as well as the living room. The bedding was ok, but could stand some improvement and one of the bathrooms... More

We visited Chautauqua over Labor Day weekend for a wedding at the Atheneum Hotel but chose to stay with St. Elmo's to have some extra space with our 2 year old daughter. It should be noted first and foremost that this is more of a condominium/timeshare place than a hotel. The units are individually owned and rented by the Real... More

We had the wonderful opportunity to stay at this beautiful facility on Bestor Plaza in the Chautauqua Institution. Each unit is individually owned and decorated in many different ways. We stayed in one of the units with the wall bed because we wanted to have the feel of a living room during the day. The bed was easy to pu... More

It's funny to read reviews by people saying they're upset because they weren't allowed to be obnoxious at midnight. It's about time the people who keep the rest of us awake at hotels because they're drunk and stupid have to pay for it! Good job St. Elmo!
