This review is for the main building located at High Peaks, not the surrounding building owned by the resort.
This hotel is located smack dab at the end of the road leading to Lake Placid. In fact you may drive right past it! I noticed the signage only because I was the passenger in the car so watch for it.
Check in was seamless, in fact my room was ready early, around 2pm. We asked for a lake view but the L shaped building put us facing the pool with the lake view to the right. If you desire full lake view you must ask for room numbers 101-108, 201-208, 301-308, 401-408 and 501-508. I was in 317. My room was nice. Double queen.
The bathroom and the beds were my highest rated amenities. The bed was SO comfortable I could hardly get out of it in the morning. Honest. The pillows are down, the bedding is cotton and the surface was like heaven. I LOVED the bed.
The bathroom is amazing. Stone walled shower, rain shower head. Thick white towels and wash cloths. The fixtures were beautiful and I loved the wood shelving and sink. There is even a TV speaker in the bathroom!!
The television had great reception and the heating/cooling unit worked perfectly. I had no complaints about the room.
The service was good. I notice quite a few young workers chatting and texting in the elevators. I noticed a room service tray left outside a door for almost an entire day as well. Other than that, no service issues.
I was there for a conference and the food and service was good. My favorite evening was the night we had dinner outside, in the grass, near the pool with a view of the mountains- amazing.
This was my first visit to Lake Placid and certainly not my last. The village is beautiful and the mountains are majestic.
