My wife and I had about the best vacation of our seven-decade lives at the Chautauqua Institution from July 21 to 28, 2013, and the Athenaeum Hotel was a major part of our experience. Although built in 1881-2, the hotel has been fairly well maintained, and the service and food were quite satisfactory. We had suite 46/48, which was well designed and furnished, and had a terrific, handsome bath. The hotel is less than a hundred yards from the Amphitheater, where most of the major morning and evening events are held. We'll be back next year.
