Checked in on January 5, 2013
We were able to get away for the week and decided to head to Lake Placid as we've never been there. The hotel was offering a mid week ski and stay package which was very reasonably priced. The reviews were ok so we decided to give it a try. What a pleasant surprise. We were greeted by very friendly staff and check in only took a minute or two. Being mid week there was lots of covered parking which is a good thing as it's been snowing since we got here. The room is very nice but were not expecting the slippers and house coats. My wife has them on now. The room is nice and clean and the shower has a rain head as well. Comfy couch and a nice big screen tv. Balcony with view of the lake that I'm sure would be quite nice in summer.
The drive from Toronto was really nice once we got off the 401 and into the US. It's a very scenic drive and took around 6 hours. If we enjoy the skiing at Whiteface we'll definitely be back before winter is over.
