This is probably the nicest hotel I've ever stayed at. True, I can't make the claim that I'm a hotel connoisseur (did I spell that right?), but I think most would agree that this hotel is very comfortable, and set with a beautiful backrop of the Adirondack mountain range. The room had a king-sized bed, with eight pillows; a big mirror hanging over the dresser/credenza/entertainment center; a flat-screen tv; a loveseat; a small table with cushioned seating for two; its own thermostat; an electric fireplace, and a view of the Adirondacks from the window. The bathroom featured marble countertops and a room-for-two jet tub with overhead shower. What can I say? The room was nicer than my own apartment accommodations, so it was hard to leave. The service was great--a newspaper at your doorstep each morning, and refreshed toiletries for your bath and coffee for your coffee machine. There was even a microwave and mini-fridge in the room. It was almost a shame that I didn't have anyone to share the room--nay, the room experience--with! Not quite, but almost. They have a restaurant on the ground level, which was okay, in terms of the food. The Great Room truly was great--gorgeous views, and very grand-looking.
The room I stayed in was an upgrade from what was reserved for the business trip I was on, due to the hotel's overbooking (lucky me), so it's way more ritzy than I'd be able to spend ($200+ per night) if I were traveling for pleasure, but given the choice, I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Not only is the hotel itself very nice, but it's set right above the little Lake Placid town (featuring Mirror Lake), where there is the opportunity to shop (some of the shops are one-of-a-kind, quirky places), have a cup of coffee, eat at a casual or fine restaurant, or just take a scenic walk around Mirror Lake.
