“Breathtaking View”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

The hotel is located on top of the hill overlooking Mirror Lake & the view is magnificent. It is also just walking distance to the Olympic Center & to the main drag. Convenience is a buzz word for this hotel since you are just a heartbeat away from restuarants & retail places. There is also a free shuttle to go to their restuarant the Boat House which is a must go for it is just so lovely & quaint . The hotel room is spacious, clean & overall okay. The hotel itself is a little dated & could use some renovation. The hotel staff were polite & professional also we got free wifi which is really a big plus.

Our golf group spent two nights at the Crowne Plaza, and we were generally very impressed with the facility and the services. The front desk staff is very helpful, the parking and unloading is easy, and the restaurant and bar facilities are large and well-managed.

We also played golf at the Links course which is owned by the same management as the hotel. They have a convenient shuttle service to and from the golf course. Meals and drinks were well prepared and the service overall was excellent. The prices are very competitive for a resort town in high season.

Highly recommended

We have been staying at the Crowne Plaza for years and it has become our reliable get-a-way hotel in Lake Placid. We visited again last weekend for a short hiking weekend. We book in the Adirondack Wing which is definitely worth the extra money spent. The balcony views are fantastic! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Main Street is just down the hill with plenty of eating, drinking, and shopping options available (in that order!). Our hands down favorite is the Great Room which overlooks the town, Mirror Lake, and Whiteface Mountain. Inside by the fire in the winter or out on the patio in the summer, it is the perfect place to be! We'll be back!

Room Tip: Book a room in the Adirondack Wing as the comfort and views are well worth the little bit extra spen...

We had not been to lake Placid for a while, but decided to take a 3 day golf vacation and stay at the Crowne Plaza......We made the right decision to return, as this is truly a fantastic place to stay in a fantastic town with fantastic people........The up graded accommodations was an un expected gesture from Cindy (front desk Mgr) that was greatly appreciated.......Except for a little winter kill on several greens on the Mountain Course, we were able to get 3 rounds in and do a little shopping and visiting of this great little town / city.............IZOD still has great bargains, and LISA G's great Sangria...................... We will be back...

Room Tip: View from Lake Side rooms is awesome!

We stayed here for one night in August and it was very nice. The hotel is in town and is up on top of a hill overlooking Mirror Lake. The views are great, but it can be a very hilly walk up to it. You can drive down the hill and there is a public lot right at the bottom and be right in town.

Our room was very nice with a small balcony overlooking the lake and the mountains.

They have a nice breakfast buffet with a lot of selections and an omelette station. Very reasonable at $11.99.

I think the hotel itself is overpriced though, and I may not stay here again because of it. I think you are paying for the view. As others have said, it is need of some updates. The elevator is very small and slow, and the AC is very noisy.

Thank you for your feedback from your recent stay with the Crowne Plaza Resort and Golf Club in the beautiful Lake Placid, NY. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your view from your room. Our resort offers some of the best views of the surrounding High Peaks! I am also pleased to see you enjoyed our breakfast buffet at Mackenzie’s restaurant. We are saddened to know our rates did not match your expectations. During the busiest summer months of June, July, and August the rates do increase. For lower rates be sure to check during the Spring, Winter, and Fall. Our rates are constantly changing so please feel free to contact the resort directly for further information! Thank you again for your feedback and we will definitely use it to further improve for future stays.

Our family stayed here for one night while travelling through the area. Staff were pleasant and the services of the hotel were good. The hotel was somewhat older, clearly built for the Olympics, and is probably due for some updating, however the room was comfortable and the scenery and town were beautiful. A five star location with a 3.5 star accommodation. It truly is a beautiful location, we would stay here again.

The great:
1. Use tripadvisor to get a deal... You shouldn't pay full price if you don't have to.
2. Upgrade for a lake view, it's awesome to sit on your balcony.
3. The fire pit and chairs to take in the view outside the lounge are lovely touches.
4. Great location and staff.
5. View is priceless.

The not so great:
1. Well... The rooms could use a little updating. Those green and merlot carpets that you see in all the 80s hotels. ;) I don't care, but I'm sure some people get all worked up about those little things.
2. Yes, it's on a huge hill. You will have to hike up it if you feel the need to walk to the town. But that's how you get the view. The huge hill. Give and take, my friends! ;)

Thanks for reading!!
