There isn't a lot going on in Hamilton, especially if you aren't a student at the local university, but the Colgate Inn is a destination unto itself. It is a heritage building that underwent a multimillion dollar renovation, and stayed faithful to many of the original design features. There is wide-plank flooring in the bar (which always has an excellent... More

Enjoyed a great meal at the Colgate Inn located in quaint Hamilton, NY; the food and service were both excellent. I really appreciate the management's success in preserving the building's historic value!

What a lovely hotel. Immaculate. Stayed for a nearby wedding and were very pleased. Beautiful furnishings and friendly employees. The light in our bathroom was very dim so not very good for putting on makeup. Restaurant on premises or you could walk to nearby restaurants. Prertty surroundings. This was our second time staying there and it's always a treat.

While visiting Colgate University, we enjoyed a family dinner here. The prime rib dinner was delicious. Side dishes were fine. Caesar salad was quite good. Hamburgers were tasty. Service was fine. It was a very pleasant evening. We would eat here again.

They were sold out for the second night of my perspective stay and found me a room from a cancellation and even moved my checked bag into the new room, which I really appreciated since I was out all day at an antiques event. Both of my rooms were well appointed... More

I've stayed at the Colgate Inn about every ten years, over the past forty years. It doesn't change much from decade to decade. This somewhat updated version (mainly in bathrooms) is comfortable in the way that an old familiar friend can be. But it still needs improvements. While the restaurant's food was good and the bedroom was comfortable (if small),... More

I needed a room to pick my daughter up from a camp at Colgate. I called the morning I was heading up there to see if there was availability. There was not but the woman who answered the phone said she would take my number and call me if something became available. Two hours later, she called. She was so... More
