“Thoughtful luxury in a grand lodge setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

Not only does this resort deliver on its first class billing by greeting you with a gorgeous lobby and stunning lodge decor, the staff surpasses expectations by their friendly and attentive service. Our room was beautiful, the food delicious and the on-site amenities (all included in your stay) were far too numerous to utilize all of them in our 3 night stay. On premises there was ice skating, snowshoeing, indoor/outdoor pool, great game room and bowling alley, movies theater (3 movies daily with free popcorn), fitness room and spa. What really sets the resort apart from other "great" resorts is the staff. Unfortunately, my 3 year old son became quite ill with a stomach bug during our ride there. (Yes- yuck.) Anyway, after a day there we needed to seek medical attention and they immediately provided us with all information, directions, hours of operation for area urgent care facilities and hospital. Further, during the rest of our stay, the staff kept inquiring after my son and aided us in providing some off menu-bland foods. Even my 8 year old noted that "the people who work here really seem to care. They must only give jobs to really nice people." While the prices are high at this resort, the service and quality of the accommodations, amenities, and service make this resort well worth the price. While our stay was not exactly what we had hoped due to my son's illness, my daughter was able to experience many aspects of the resort and we will definitely return.

It took only one stay at White Face Lodge for it to become part of our yearly trip to Lake Placid. We are avid hikers who long for a little luxury after a few days of backpacking in the Adirondacks. It may have been the generous room sizes, or the fantastic breakfast buffet. It could have been the spa, or the game room with bowling alley. Maybe it was the excellent customer service, or the relaxing ambiance. Whatever it was, we are hooked and plan on returning for years to come.

We have been fortunate enough to go there for a week for the past few years in early December. Although I have now seen it many time....it TRULY takes my breath away when I drive into the enteranceway! Just glorious. About 30 trees....all lit with white lights. An enchanted forest.
But that is only the beginning! There are 2 trees...both reach 3 stories high and are sturdy/strong/big enough to hold REAL ice skates and snow shoes as decorations. (also mittens etc)
EVERYTHING you need is there.;...including a movie every night in a great theater where you can bring your own fresh popcorn (lots of butter, please) and a bottle of wine. Rarely is anyone there! Also s'mores every single night around a fire.......ice skating, bowling.........
Just trust me. It is not a cheap place....but thoroughly enjoyable! Staff is also great!

Room Tip: Both sides have glorious views! One side faces Whiteface...the other overlooks the courtyard....the...

great facility, clean and comfortable. Not terribly busy during our 3 night stay in a one bedroom suite. large, clean room. good housekeeping service each day. Maria (front desk) and Brian (doorman) very good, solid staff.
skated on outdoor rink (excellent ice surface despite outdoor temp. of +45 f). games room is well equipped (bowling lanes unfortunately out of service).wonderful indoor/outdoor pool and hot tub.
full breakfast (above average) included in room rate. two meals we had in Khanue lounge were good, service was polite and professional.

Room Tip: get a room facing the inside court.

My husband and I stayed at the Whiteface Lodge for two nights and would recommend the resort. The hotel offers many amenities included in the stay. The resort was clean and contemporary. They offer complementary valet parking which is a nice bonus when they bring the already warmed up car. The suites are very spacious equipped with a small kitchen. The beds were comfortable, there were robes, slippers and plenty of fresh towels. Complementary coffee, hot chocolate and cookies were available most of the day. The resort offers free movies in its small theater and there is a nice game room and fitness center. We did not use the pool or hot tub since it was located in a separate building. This is a negative in my book. I am not into being wet and having to run back inside to get out of the cold. The room rate includes breakfast in the main restaurant. Breakfast was good with typical buffet options. You could also order off the menu which was also a nice option. We also had dinner in the restaurant however, overall the food was fair. The atmosphere in the restaurant was lovely with two large fireplaces. There were many families at the hotel with small kids which did not bother us since we are parents ourselves. However, at times you could hear the little ones crying from the family in the room next door or in the halls. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Whiteface Lodge is a first rate wonderland. The lodge and suites are outstanding and fit the surrounding Lake Placid area perfect. The suite has two rooms, the bedroom with a king size bed, a large window overlooking the covered patio with a view of the snow and mountains and a bathroom with two sinks, an oversized spa tub and heated floors. The main room was large with a large window again showing the great views, a gas fireplace, flat screen tv,, 2 large chairs, a large couch, the lamps are all tiffany style and the wood tables are handmade. All this and a full kitchen and table and chairs for your meals. Robes and slippers where also provided and the was a large half bath off of the entry. All our meals were fairly priced and the food and service were second to none. All the staff where very friendly and helpful. They have a complimentary GMC suv to take you to town and you just call them when you are ready to return to the lodge. Did I mention the turndown service every night with homemade chocolate chip cookies. There is just way to much to keep talking about. Check out their web site to find out all the other things.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a mountain view.

This hotel is located about 20 minutes from Whiteface mountain. My husband and I took our three kids there at the beginning of January to ski. The hotel was unbelievable! Staff was friendly and incredibly helpful, the rooms were beautiful and spotless and the restaurants were top notch. The breakfast is included and is so amazing, I promise you'll never want to leave!!

They have a great game room for the kids with air hockey, ping pong, bowling, pool and other games. The workout room is well stocked and spacious.

This is a great hotel - I'd go back in a heartbeat!
