After visiting Colgate we settled into the fine Colgate Inn for an excellent lunch. We sat outside under a large awning and enjoyed the summer breezes. Service was a bit slow but when the menu was delivered it really looked good. Soup, salads, and fine sandwiches such as lobster rolls, bahn mi, chicken parm, pulled pork, etc. My bahn mi... More

Located on the town green in Hamilton, NY, you will be hard-pressed to find a nicer place to stay in the area. Although an old-world inn, it has been lovingly restored with many modern amenities. We had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and both were very good. I would suggest staying away from booking the rooms by the elevator... More

Built in the 20's, this is a unique experience. Our room was two doubles and spacious. Great bathroom with hot water and good pressure. We had strong wifi. This was a perfect location for visiting Colgate. We walked to campus for an info session and tour. We had salads at the restaurant, which were wonderful, as well as room service... More

We took a short ride from Syracuse, NY to celebrate with a birthday breakfast. When we asked if the patio was available for seating, the hostess was more than happy to show to our table. With temperatures in the low 90's the awning cover kept the area very comfortable. We were soon joined by more patrons wanting to also sit... More

With a classic style, and two eateries on premises, this lodging option can accommodate a variety of tastes and needs. The pub has a nice fire place and often live music. The room was clean, and recently updated. With an elegant style, the business needs are still covered: meeting room, wifi, room service, etc.

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Colgate Inn for one night over Valentine's Day weekend. The inn is beautifully situated on the town square, and has a feeling of elegance and warmth immediately upon entering the lobby. The rates were affordable, and we stayed in a beautiful suite (The Falcone Suite) which was impressively designed, had a large bathroom... More

This hotel is in downtown Hamilton, NY. It's a quaint town. It's only a 10 minute walk to Colgate University. Within a few blocks of the hotel, there's a bookstore, coffee shop, several restaurants and a gorgeous town green. The rooms in the hotel are spacious, clean and quaint. My room was super comfortable -- and there were jacuzzi jets... More

I am definitely coming back to this hotel. Easy to get to from Albany and this small town is beautiful. You must eat there as the food and drink selection were amazing. The rooms were beautiful and warm. Loved the hardwood floors in your room! Can't wait to get back

My wife and I stayed at the Colgate Inn for one night for my nephew's wedding. Clean and comfortable overall. No in-room coffee, no safe, small bathroom. The rate was $160 for a fairly small room with a queen bed. Strangely enough, my dad, by himself, had a much bigger room with a king size bed. Go figure. BTW, the... More
