The High Peaks Resort is exactly like advertised, what a wonderful hotel. The biggest draws that we saw with the hotel was an extremely cozy and well appointed lobby with fireplaces and a great Adirondack feel to it. The rooms are very nice and maybe the biggest feature is the ceramic showers with dual shower heads and a small set. One of the nicest showers we've seen in a hotel. The views from the room are also outstanding. The Fitness Center was also the best one I've used ever at a hotel with brand new equipment, top notch names in fitness, and a stocked fridge with plenty of bottled water. All cardio has tvs on them and the work-out options are excellent and it is open 24 hours, this is a huge selling point and a reason I will always go back now. The downsides are the pool area is a little dated and we had some knucklehead above us making noise all night with ski poles and banging that kept us up. Ohh, the beds are also the most comfortable we've ever had, this is the top hotel in Lake Placid other than the big three (LP Lodge, WF Lodge, Mirror Lake Inn) as I've stayed in most of the other. The Arrow is close, but a step below the High Peaks in bang for for the buck.
