“Holiday Village Stroll”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013 via mobile

Stayed here Dec 6-9 for the Holiday Village Stroll weekend. Loved it. We had a room on the 3rd floor overlooking the outdoor pool area, Main St, Mirror Lake and the High Peaks in the distance. Great views.

The room was very nice. Bed and pillows were awesome. Really nice bathroom and shower with a dual head "rain" shower.

The lobby is beautiful with a lot of wood and stone and a roaring fire going 24/7. There is a nice lobby bar where you can get a drink in the evening and hang by the fire.

Enjoyed the indoor pool and whirlpool.

Spent a lot of time in the Dancing Bears restaurant / bar. We love it there.

We've been coming to LP for almost 20 years. This is definitely one of the nicest places to stay in town.

Stayed December 2013

The hotel was beautiful and room was very nice. We stayed two nights. First night was wonderful, quiet and peaceful. Second night our floor turned into a playground. Several rooms were taken up by families and it was total chaos. We called the front desk and asked for some one to take care of the problem but that did not happen for the noise and yelling and running and doors slaming continued till 10:30 that night. I did complain again at checkout and was asked what did I want them to do to compensate us for the problem, they did give us our breakfast comped. I was really disappointed by there lack of response that night.

My wife and I stayed here in late October for 4 nights and were delighted with the stay. The hotel has great rooms - very big, comfortable and well-appointed. The staff were great to deal with and the hotel's lobby and facilities are top notch. This is one of the few full-size hotels right in town. The location is perfect right at the corner of the main town intersection by Main Street. There is covered parking and lots of stuff within walking distance.

Given that we were here in the "off-season" between summer and winter high seasons, I will caveat our experience as the hotel was almost empty. There are two things that we noticed though; 1) we found noise in the hallways was very loud in the rooms, so don't expect silence, and 2) the food in the hotel is average - room service breakfast was a disappointment.

Otherwise, I would totally recommend this hotel to people staying in Lake Placid.

We booked this from Toronto. We booked a 2 day fall package which included a $75 voucher as well as breakfast for 2 both days. Very friendly staff and totally helpful. We got there late in the day after a spectacular drive from New York. The lobby of the hotel is really nice. lots of stone and wood with a beautiful 2 sided fireplace right next to a bar in the lobby. Totally comfortable and relaxing environment.

We had a beautiful room on the 5th floor with a spectacular view of mirror lake and the mountains. It had a balcony and a fridge and 2 queen beds. the bathroom was amazing - best bathroom I have seen in a hotel room. Nice walk in shower with rainforest shower head.

The dancing bears restaurant was good. Service was excellent and food good.

Highly recommend the hotel for the price and location with a view.

My husband and I needed a few days to rest and relax. We decided to head up to Lake Placid and chose this hotel. So glad we decided to stay here. The High Peaks was extremely clean and cozy. We were not thrilled with the view ( rooftop air conditioners) of our first room so they happily moved us to a room with mountain view and it was great. There was a beautiful gathering area with a fireplace in the lobby that we really enjoyed for morning coffee and drinks before heading out to dinner. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Dancing Bears (restaurant on site) had great food and friendly service. We will return for sure. Excellent location to walk everywhere in town.

My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary. We opted for one of the packages which included a 75.00 credit. It was useful for the facial I had at their Elements Spa -with Amanda (5 star). When we arrived to our room we were greeted with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Nice touch! Our room was fine had all amenities including white terry cloth robe and slippers. The location was in the lodge itself there are 2 other buildings.
We were in room 401 which had a view of Lake Placid rooftop from the building next to us was a bit of a distraction. The room was right next to the elevator and parking lot-very convenient!
We had one dinner and breakfast there (called Dancing Bear) (breakfast was included in the pkge.) We are not big breakfast eaters (coffee and toast mainly) so I think we did not maximize our meal there. We had a salad one night.

We ate out one night at a recommended place Caffe Rustica (Italian) it was delicious! I had fresh grilled salmon, and hubby had a pizza. Reservations recommended. We did not have reservations and had a 20 min wait.

Last plus is the location of High Peaks is centrally located-it is in the downtown area. One just has to walk outside to stroll the shops.

We were traveling to Lake Placid with our dog for the first time. The hotel was pet friendly, the staff very accommodating and friendly...best in town location. Loved the roaring fireplace in the lobby and the view of Mirror Lake from our room..be sure to pay extra for 4th or 5th floor rooms with view. Dancing Bears Restaurant..good breakfast..dinner was OK. We are making this our hotel of choice in LP.
