Seneca falls may have once been a thriving robust town in the 1900's but not in 2011. A few college type bars and a glorified subway -deli shop were about it on the strip, oh there is a make shift museum that did serve it's purpose to provide some background as to what made this town map worthy. I'm sorry to sound bitter....really I do. Now, if you are a wine drinker their are many wineries to visit outside of the little town, ok....if you want to shop an outlet mall...their is one of those too. I happen to get wine eyed after 3 glasses and I have the same outlet mall 45 min from my home so neither option appealed to me much. Oh,not to mention my boyfriend would rather be locked in a bathroom then go window shopping,lol.
Onto the review of the hotel. At first sight upon entering I /we were pleased with the modern trendy decor however the photos on their website make it look much larger,most pics do I suppose. The desk attendant was very friendly and the check in went smooth. Our room was scary small and looked onto the roof with all the lovely blowers. We looked at another room, view was just as bad. The decor is modern minimalist if you will. All white walls,no artwork, hardwood floors and high ceilings....great if I'm in New York and only plan on sleeping and showering but in that dead town a nice comfy warm room would have been awesome. Very nice wall mounted tv with expanded cable and a Keurig coffee maker is a plus. You will not find a workout room,but you will find a decent bar with crappy hours and a trendy restaurant that is in fact the only restaurant in town, unless you just want chicken wings or Chinese from down the street.The restaurant staff was great, nice and expedient. My boyfriend enjoyed his veal cheek dinner, I however got an over cooked filet, they took it off the check without us asking, we thought that was very nice. We both decided not to stay the second night even though it was paid for. The deal was good,but we were bored.
My overall of this trip.....don't go unless you visit wineries and want to go to the outlet mall, otherwise...not much to do or see.
