Was heading for Fayetteville, NY in order to visit the Stickley Museum the next day. Saw a sign for Sharon Springs which I had read about in Preservation Magazine so stopped at the American Hotel and was fortunate to find there was one room left. Had a great meal in the dining room with a wonderful Mosel wine. Didn't hear a sound all night. Unlike my stay just before at the Hampton Inn in Waterbury, CT for which I wrote a review titled: "On a Scale from 1-10: -100". Breakfast next day had the biggest blueberries and strawberries I've ever seen. Have already recommended the Hotel to my brothers for their Union College reunions and to friends in Niagara on the Lake who have Loyalist ancestors.

Friends were staying in Cooperstown and we decided to take a drive and have brunch at the American Hotel. Our greeting was warm and welcoming. We has drinks at the bar before we ate and the bartender was friendly and engaging. Our waitress was extremely friendly but not intrusive like they are in California. She was extremely helpful and we shared a laugh or two. We settled in and were enjoying our lunch, and expecting average / traditional American fare. We were in for a surprise. The food was better than we ever imagined! Beautifully plated, ore original than we imagined and extremely tasteful! Everyone in the dining room was enjoying their food as well and there was lively conversation all around. Not one person was having a bad time, and no one wanted to leave. The owners make you feel so welcome! We will definitely be back! Thank you American Hotel for a great lunch!

It's always a treat to spend a night (or two!) at the American Hotel. This was my 5th or 6th stay there - and another perfect visit! The rooms are the definition of "stylish" and Garth and Doug are the Hosts with the Mosts. A friend joined me there for dinner before we headed off to nearby Glimmerglass, and it was all just right: casual fine dining! Breakfast next morning did not disappoint - so many enticing choices, but I finally decided on the Blueberry Pancakes. OMG, the best I ever had! And the cozy dining room could not be more inviting. On top of all that, you have the quaint little village of Sharon Springs to explore, with fun spots like the Black Cat Cafe across the street. I have felt welcomed like a special guest every time I've visited the American Hotel, and I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else when I'm in that area. And sometimes I'm in that area just because I want to stay there! Be sure to book early - it's appropriately beyond popular.

This quaint, charming hotel in a very small upstate New York Village is the perfect spot to stop off and have a lovely, quiet and intimate meal. The service is spectacular and the food is amazing. A lovely setting.

The small town of Sharon Springs is host to the historic American Hotel. While I have not had the pleasure of staying there, I have experienced the restaurant on several occasions. The food, the service and the ambiance are all five star. The bartender, George, makes the best Old Fashioned I've ever tasted. The owners are usually on hand to welcome you to their town and to their establishment. There is an air of inclusion and kindness that is pervasive, not something that's in great quantities these days. Great food, atmosphere, service and peace of mind--perfect!
