We traveled to Chautauqua for a wedding and stayed at the hotel for two nights. The Anthenauem is an older, historic hotel built in 1881 and it does show its age. That said, it's quaint, is set in a great location for walking, biking or boating.
The surrounding community is made up of historic homes that reminded me of the towns on Martha's Vinyard.
The staff was friendly and they provided great service.
