We stayed in room # 120 which is located two doors away from the pool / fitness door. It was a sleek, modern room. We loved the glass doors separating the bedroom from the living room area. The bathroom was a good size too. The only problem is the hallways had a faint odor of chlorine and it can be noisy. We were not expecting there to be a lot of children around, but there was. It just so happened to be a child care conference that weekend. I'm sure it must be quieter other times, but next time we would rather be on the Skana Spa wing or upstairs in one of the VIP suites. In February, my girlfriends and I stayed in the Towers and had Ashi Spa treatments. While the room in the Towers was nicely decorated, it does not compare to the Lodge. The Ashi Spa treatments were just as good as the Skana Spa; however, the amenities at the Skana Spa felt more luxurious. The steam room, sauna, whirlpool, and mineral water pool was so much nicer than at the Ashi Spa. My only complaint with the spas are the misinformation I received from various staff on both my visits. They tell you about purchasing a "Day Pass" to the spas yet each time none are available. Each staff person, from reservations, to the front desk staff, to the concierge told us a different story. At Mirbeau in Skaneateles a guest staying overnight has use of their spa amenities. Too bad Turning Stone doesn't extend that same courtesy! If you can get a "Day Pass" ( which seems like a myth to me) it will cost each guest $35.00.
The beds were comfortable, but not as heavenly as the Mirbeau mattresses. The Dream Catcher for guests was a nice touch. Our room did have a walk-out patio which was nice too.
We had dinner at Pino Bianco and it was delicious! Our server was Kathryn, she was attentive. We would definitely go here again. For dessert we went to Opal's just across from the restaurant to bring goodies back to our room. Breakfast at Wildflowers was excellent. Kayla was our waitress and she too was very nice and efficient. The breakfast menu had so many excellent choices.
