Fantastic Family Getaway.

Extremely inexperienced dining staff. Stick with the buffet. Ordering off the menu takes forever. And most of the time they get it wrong anyway. Late night front desk staff couldn't answer anything . No food at the lake during the week. They should have a BBQ at least as you have to bring your own food or leave the premises. Overall experience was a success, but a five star hotel should work out their service issues.

Almost Perfect

This is our second visit to Whiteface Lodge, a modern lodge/timeshare venue in Lake Placid, one of my favorite places in the world. Whiteface should be a five-star property but the staff are not as unobtrusively attentive as they should be. Examples: I am highly allergic to feathers but getting hypo-allergic bedding required numerous calls and explanations. I even recommended two bedding products that I use at home. Also, I requested 2 PM (vs. 4 PM) check-in and was assured, while en route, that was no problem. When we arrived the desk clerk said" The room isn't ready. You can use our amenities until it is." The manager straightened that out. Then, when I turned the kitchen faucet on for a drink, water spouted from the top. A maintenance guy fixed it right away, but why didn't housekeeping notice or care? Lastly, there was a toddler in diapers in the fast-moving jacuzzi, a dangerous and unhealthy situation. The mom said: "It's okay. I'm an owner here." IIt shouldn't take much for managers to provide world class service and to make things right for the guest., With a little attitude adjustment on staff's part, this will truly be a five-star property.

Annual family trip to the Adirondacks

This is our third annual trip to the Whiteface Lodge with the family - I think that says enough! The Whiteface Lodge is an amazing hotel - wonderful staff, activities for the entire family (very well heated outdoor pool, game room, movie theater, etc). Definitely a splurge but well worth it.

Just a fabulous stay :-)

Very, very friendly and helpful staff in a spectacular setting....my wife, I, and 3 week old son went away thrilled and already thinking of our next return visit. The game room was second to none along with the private bowling alley. Also, the staff bent over backwards to accommodate some of the special requests we had seeing we brought our new born friend along with us. We've been blessed to stay in some fine resorts, but this one stands apart. Thank you to staff at Whiteface Lodge :-)

Perfect place for a northern getaway

The Whiteface Lodge is fantastic - the ambiance, the service, the amenities (including the pool, outdoor hot-tubs, gym, in-house movie-theater and complimentary after-dinner s'mores at one of the big fireplaces) were all terrific. My wife really loved the on-premises spa as well. Not sure when I will get back to Lake Placid, but if I do I will be staying here. Would love to check it out in the summertime. The on-premises restaurant, Kanu, was very good, but I'd recommend trying some other alternatives if you are staying more than 2 nights. Their breakfast buffet is a great way to kickstart your day though!

Every room has a full kitchen and fridge (but no ice maker). You can buy groceries and make dinner on your own if you want to save a few bucks.

Amazing Winter Escape

Awesome time. Staff is great, rooms are beautiful and the lodge is gorgeous. The breakfast buffet is delicious. Can't beat this place. Fun had by all. Treated like gold, with so much stuff to do - bowling, movie theater, ice cream parlour, skating rink, indoor/outdoor pool and hot tubs. I'm in awe. Don't want to go home and will definitely return.

The great escape

I stayed at the hotel for the second time. Great for kids and adults ! In door out door heated pool, hot tubes spa with wet and dry sauna. Kids can have fun in the play room : air hockey, tennis table , billiard , bowling, movie theater. You can borrow snow shoes or use the ice rink for no charge . Good food in both restaurant with great included breakfast.

Beautiful property

This trip was a mini vacation for my husband and I and what a lavish hotel with many great amenities. The staff was top notch and extremely helpful. Wonderful Kanu restaurant, delicious food. A classy spa, a bowling alley, skating rink w/ skates, snowshoe borrowing, campfire w/ marshallows each evening and beautiful scenery. Can not wait to return. Still earning their 5 stars!!
