"The place will blow you away."
"You may even soon forget The Whiteface Lodge."
NOT! As a couple who has been at the Whiteface Lodge 3 years running, this is what we were told when we phoned Reservations at High Peaks. The hotel is the former Hilton that has been made over. The renovations were very nice. The lobby and dining areas were well appointed, and who can beat its location right on across from Mirror Lake and in the heart of the village? So what is the problem you may ask?
If you have been to the Whiteface Lodge before, you may find yourself sobbing as you enter the guest room. For us, that is where our stay ended. We did not even put our bags down, and checked out.
I am not saying this is a bad hotel, but as far as being compared with the Whiteface Lodge? Well, that is like bring a slingshot to a gun fight!
