“Exceptional!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

This place is truly unbelievable. We have stayed both in the winter and summer and there is really no place that I can compare it too. It is gorgeous! The service is fantastic and the grounds/rooms/ are in pristine condition. In the winter it is surreal swimming in the outside pool and hopping into the jacuzzi as snowflakes are falling on your face with the beautiful mountains as a backdrop. Well worth it!!

As I write this, I am dreaming of going back to The Whiteface Lodge. It is just perfect in every way.

I have been to fine hotels and resorts around the world and this is at the top of my list. The service, rooms, kids club, indoor outdoor pool, spa, restaurants, ice cream parlor, game room with bowling are all top notch....I could go on and on. It really doesn't get any better. We have stayed many times this past year and anytime of year is great. There is just so much to do all the time. You can also choose to do nothing except eat s'mores by the fire outside at night!

Our kids beg us to go back and we can't wait to go again. Highly recommend. Best hotel hands down anywhere in Lake Placid and one of the top in the world. Don't forget to go to their amazing spa and get an ice cream sundae after eating popcorn and fresh chocolate chip cookies! Oh, there are 3 movies a day too. Walking trails, boat club....can you tell we love it?!!!!

During a whistle stop work trip we viewed The Whiteface Lodge and ate in the restauarant which was amazing.

Food was delicious with wine to match each course. Could not fault the service either.

Beautiful setting and fabulous lodge

When we pulled up in front of the Whiteface Lodge I said to my husband, there's no way this place is going to be as gorgeous inside as it is outside. We were very pleasantly surprised to find out that it was! You really don't have to leave the hotel for anything. Everything is there..... indoor and outdoor pools, hot tubs, theater, game room, spa, fitness room, dining rooms - and if you love S'mores and ice cream sundaes - they've got them too! It's rustic but beautiful and the staff couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. Lake Placid is one of my favorite places to visit in New York State and the Whiteface Lodge is now my favorite place to stay!

Room Tip: Corner suites have a beautiful outside deck to relax and have a few cocktails.

I took my wife here for her birthday two years ago! Being in January, it was the coldest long weekend ever experienced...26 below zero! The lodge was warm and had many amenities including a heated indoor-outdoor pool. The food was excellent.

The Whiteface Lodge has to be the best place I have ever stayed. I have never made it up for more than a few days at a time, but I have always enjoyed every minute of it. The staff are very friendly and do whatever they can to make sure you enjoy your stay. There is always something to do at the lodge, so if its not a nice day out, you can always find a way to stay entertained. Theres a beautiful indoor/outdoor pool, fitness center, game room, movie theater, spa, and a lot more! I've only been able to enjoy it in the winter/spring, and cant wait to see what its like in the summer. There are not enough good things I can say about this place, the list goes on and on! I cant wait to return

Room Tip: Try to get a room that faces the courtyard, I believe they're the even numbered ones.

Simply Amazing! It was our second time visiting the Lodge and again, we didn’t want to leave. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms -311 but it was suffice for the two of us, very nicely decorated like the other rooms, with fireplace and kitchen. We did miss the king size bed and separate tub/shower though. The resort is pristine. Grounds are kept immaculate, and the service was incredible, as always. From the s ‘mores around the fire, to fresh popcorn, to the eucalyptus steam room... you cant really ask for more. Oh! And the amazing views. Cant wait to come back and get another massage as well. The Spa is a must!
