a good hotel in a good location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 20, 2006

We had first wanted to stay at Lake Placid Lodge, but their only remaining room had no view, so this was our second choice. It doesn't approach the standard we had been anticipating at the other place, but it wasn't as bad as expected. The rooms are very standard, the same as most chain hotels. They were large and adequate and the view over the lake was OK. The service was good.

The hotel tries to portray itself as a romantic country bed & breakfast or lodge, but it is in fact quite a large featureless hotel. In spite of this, it's a good hotel and I would stay there again if I was sticking to that budget. If money was no object, I would stay at Lake Placid Lodge.

Directions: Across the street from Mirror Lake, 150 m north from where Main Street and Saranac Avenue meet.

Save yourself a few bucks and go to the next town.

The next town to Lake Placid (LP) is Saranac Lake. The hotels are cheaper than the ones in Lake Placid. The regular tourists stay in LP, but you can save yourself a few bucks by going to the town next door and sleep just fine. There's a McD's and a Pizza Hut in town, too.

The two places I've stayed is the Best Western Inn (AAA members get 10% off), and the place to the left next door. (I forget, but I stayed there at least 2x.) Both are relatively less expensive than the Holiday Inn in LP. There are a couple bed-n-breakfast places on either side of LP, but I never stayed there, so I can't help ya. You may wanna check these out, too!

Unique Quality: It's a better deal. Call in advance as events in the area can fill up the hotels even here, too!

Directions: 87 North to Exit 30. Go west until you see it, which may be an hour later. Call the # or do mapquest to the above address for details.

Elegance in the Adirondacks at the Mirror Lake Inn

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 13, 2003

The Mirror Lake Inn is a venerable and elegant establishment in the lovely Adirondacks town of Lake Placid, NY. Every attention to detail can be expected from this five-star and long-renowned hotel.

A myriad of room possibilities and wings exist, but I'd seriously suggest that you cough up the extra money for one of their suites, which are second-to-none. From the large whirlpool baths and four-poster beds to the 007-like automatic gas fireplaces and electrically controlled blinds, this place is truly smashing.

The Inn has an outstanding restuarant, which is named the Averil Cromwell Room. The food was marvelous, and the butlers/maids and waiters had just the right mix of familiarity, personality and protocol to make each meal an outstanding event. It's especially nice to get a table near both a fireplace AND a front window, so that you can enjoy the crackling fire AND the view of Mirror Lake on a chilly October evening.

The inn also has a world-class spa. We didn't spend a lot of time in what appeared to be this impressive facility. However, I highly recommend the tandem Swedish massages.

Afternoon tea and fresh-baked cookies in the main lobby and dens is a great social event as well.

The inn is within very easy walking distance of the center of the Lake Placid village.

Do yourself a real favor and stay here. For more pictures and information, please see the separate Lake Placid/Mirror Lake Inn travelogue on my Lake Placid page.

Unique Quality: Class, peace, serenity, service, privacy, culture, character.

This place has it all. This is a great spot for an anniversary trip.

Directions: Simply drive into town and look for the signs. The Mirror Lake Inn is directly on (not surprisingly) Mirror Lake.
