Last month we made Brunch reservation for 12 people at Monhonk Mountain. The food was fine but the manager who was working the room was either racist or extremely rude to Chinese people. We were the only Asians in that room. Besides our table, there were only 6 other tables that were occupied. Those tables all had Caucasian guests. He went to every one of those tables to ask about their food and their day. He playfully teased the little kids in those tables. Because of what we saw, we expected him to come to our table. He didn't. When he was done with the other tables, he stood around the food area and then he left. All the adults in our table were very offended. I spoke to management and they said it was unintentional. They believed the manager's words. I want to know if other Asians had such an experience at Monhonk Mountain. After that experience, I would not recommend the place to anyone.

We'd been to Mohonk before but this was the first time with the kids. What you read elsewhere is true: very expensive but breathtaking views, a great place to unwind, and lots of food that for the most part is very good.

I get the impression that Mohonk has tried to be more kid-friendly recently. There is a kid's club on weekends (daily in the summer?) that our two boys liked very much, the new indoor pool is great, and there is sometimes a kid's buffet for dinner.

That said, I was disappointed that getting a hamburger for one of our boys seemed impossible in the non-summer. Chicken fingers seem always available, and sometimes pizza or pasta, but if your child is a finicky eater, you may not have many choices. Also, the second bed in our room was big enough for only one child requiring the need for a roll-away for our second child.

Note, there is only one television in the entire hotel (albeit an HD wide screen) but we saw that as a plus - we wanted an alternative to Disney/ Nick Hotel and this is certainly the opposite. Plenty of opportunity for a youngster to see nature, get some fresh air, and exercise instead of more theme parks. Our youngest said unsolicited: "This hotel is awesome!"

All-in-all, however, we thought an extra $82 (plus 15% gratuity) for each kid per day was a bit excessive given the already very expensive room rate. There are some off-season periods during which kids are for free but if your schedule does not fit these specials, be prepared to pay even more.

My wife and I are both educators from northern New Jersey. We were suprisingly pleased that such rugged, natural beauty that is to be found in the Mohonk property is so close to home. Really, this kind of natural setting is something that is more typical of Wyoming than upstate New York, and it is spectacular.

The hotel is beautiful and historic; the main house is huge; with miles of hallways, beautifully decorated rooms, and carved, stone fireplaces.

The staff was exceptionally attentive, even going so far to retrive some needed items in our car for us.

The only issue is price. Our two-night stay was extremely expensive (over $1000). If Mohonk wants some return business from us, they should consider more afforable packages for families.

My husband and his closest friend celebrate their birthdays together every year, as the dates are 1 week apart. This being a special year, 60th, we four wanted something special. We booked our 2 night stay for Oct. 25&26, and made our reservations on Oct. 1. We had the Mohonk's Shopping getaway special, our rooms were $396 per night. And, the taxes and gratuity were extra.

We four had a wonderful time at the Mohonk, and it does take some time getting adjusted to it, we were in awe of it, that it has been in business for 137 years, and we knew not to expect the Ritz Carlton. We were intrigued by the history of the place, the details of each little nook and cranny. We hiked on both days, did not do the Labrynth, but we did make it up to the top of the Tower. The scenery is breathtaking. We were amazed at the amount of kids and babies there, we just felt it was a place for older people who want to keep things quiet, relaxing. There were 12-14 corporate functions on both days that we were there, that surprised us. The food was very good, someone wrote they lost 3 pounds staying there, my goodess, I don't see how!!

Our staff was was very courteous, brought our drinks/tea/sodas right away. Our meals were very good, not Culinary Institute quality, but very good. We took a horse carriage ride and loved it. Yes, it is expensive for the average-income person, but then I know places where just the room is $400. The Borgata in A.C. So I would definitely recommend the Mohonk as a place to stay for just 2 nights or so, just to see it, experience it, you can have a drink with dinner, but bring your own wine or whatever you like. Have a drink and enjoy the scenery on your balcony. We stayed in room 408, faced the lake. King bed, very comfortable, bathroom updated and very clean. We are happy to have shared this special birthday with friends in a place so different, with such a long history. Makes you feel Mohonk has outlived everyone!!

I travel all over the world and have stayed at some special places. But this hotel was a surprise. When I drove over the mountain top and saw this huge castle framed by the mountains and giant pine trees, my jaw dropped!

It felt a bit like something you'd find in Disneyworld, but this is the original that Disneyworld would have modeled their replicas from.

When NY City gets old and you are tired of security lines at the airport, I suggest you give this place a try. It's not a hotel...it's an experience. You can use their boats on their lake, hike, ride horses or a sleigh, ice scate and spa like crazy.

My cell phone didn';t work very well...that alone is the reason to return. We had a romantic stay, in front of a woodburning fireplace...in an enormous suite with a balcony and ricking chairs. Cookies, tea and coffee arrived in our room (no charge) when you call.

It's now "our special place" and we are hoping to book our springtime wedding there.
