This was our first visit to the Lake Placid area and to High Peaks Resort. We were greeted with a nice glass of champagne to welcome us. We had requested a king bed room but were told at the desk that none were available for consecutive nights during our three night stay. Not wanting to hotel hop each night, we... More

This hotel was in a great location to the lake and downtown shopping. We stayed at the main lodge which is gorgeous, and was offered glass of champagne upon checking in which was a nice touch. We stayed on the pet friendly level of 3 and did have a lake view room, but also a view of the rooftop mechanical... More

Last summer i gave a lil rough review of the High Peaks and i must say that it looks like they listened and made some improvements. The Hotel is in the best location in Lake Placid and has an incredible opportunity to be the premier hotel for the city. Once again the Lake Front rooms really can't be beat -... More

Well..where to start? This was our second stay at High Peaks resort, this time for a much needed relaxing trip. I made my reservation directly with the hotel, and decided to spend a bit more for the room in order to have a view of the lake (Superior room with view)- last time we had a wonderful view of the...

Dear YankeeGalCT,  Thank you for sharing your experience. While our sister property, Lake House, is wonderful, we understand that it is not what you expect when reserving a superior room view at High Peaks Resort. Though I am very happy to see our Front Office team did everything they could to assist you, we clearly have some ground to make... More

We absolutely loved our stay here over Labor Day weekend. Upon entry, we were greeted with a stunning lobby and courteous staff. Our rooms did not disappoint either. The beds were plush and extremely comfortable. Our shower had dual heads and exquisite stonework which made you feel like you were showering in a spa. Our balcony overlooked the pool and... More

i forgot a pair of trousers in the closet behind the shower door. Called just a few hours after check out. Completely unresponsive staff - lying through their teeth to blow off a simple request to retrieve and mail the trousers to me on my dime.

Having come to Lake Placid many times over the years, this is our first time at the High Peaks Resort. The first room we were assigned had a stale smell (I thought it could be cigarettes but it's a smoke-free hotel, so IDK) and we were promptly assigned a new room. Our superior view king room had a partial lake... More
