My wife and I stayed here over the Labor Day Weekend with our German Sheperd. The pet friendly wing was perfect. We had our own deck with acres of green lawn to walk our dog. The room was nice, big, and well appointed. It was very quiet too. The room was very clean and didn't smell of previous pet visits.The hotel has a happy hour in the lobbby from 5-6 pm featuring several local wines. We tried 4 of them and liked two enough to want to go see the wineries they came from. The first night we wanted to try the steak restaurant onsite. We had been on the road for 6 hours and didn't want to drive into town. I would recommend the restaurant as the steak was very good. We ate breakfast at their other onsite restaurant and it was very good also.
We didn't try the spa because we didn't want to lose a minute of sightseeing on this our first trip to the Finger Lakes with the weather being so great. We did do one of the recommended hikes to the little lake nearby and found the trail easy to hike. We can't say enough about how well the staff treated us and our dog. When I asked about paying for someone to walk our dog that we left behind one day because of the heat Ashley at the front desk walked our dog and wouldn't take any money for her services. You can't hardly find that kind of service anywhere in the US hotel system. It thoughtfulness like that that will bring us back next time we visit. If you want a friendly, classy and quiet place while in Ithaca it would be hard to find a better place than La Tourelle.
