We were in Lake Placid last weekend for the marathon weekend. I booked this reservation in March online with a AAA discount. I never got an email confirmation and called the hotel.. They had my reservation, but told me that "sometimes the e-mail work and sometimes they dont". I asked them to trry agian...still no email. I called mid-May to cancel one night and asked for an e-mail confirmation. Agian no e-mail. Upon checking in the rate was not as I rememberd it at time of booking, however because I never got a confirmation, I had no proof. I did overhear another guest discussing the same issue with a different desk clerk. No matter how you book, I would advise insisting on some sort of email to confirm your rate. Lesson learned.
This is a great location if you want to be right in town with walking to all the shops and restaraunts. We booked a "courtyard room" and would recommend asking for something other than the ground floor. The room with two queen beds was fine and the bathroom was spacious with a "rain shower" head as well as a hand held and a corner seat. The gym had nice equipment with video screens at each one of the cardio machines. They had bottled water and fruit available in the gym kithenette.
The hotel has a bar in the lobby that was never open during our stay. It would have been a nice option if you didn't want the busier Dancing Bear Lounge. We ate at the Dancing Bear twice and the food was great as well as the service. They do have some issue with a leak in the cieling above the bar. They had towels out to catch the drops all night as it was a rainy weekend. That took away from the ambaince of the place....
Overall the accomodations were nice and the staff was very helpful!!
