Lake Placid Visit and Whiteface Lodge Review – Including Hotel Floor Plan

Need a break and think of heading to the Adirondacks in New York?.  Friends told me that Lake Placid is a great place to do some cycling and hiking.  I did some quick research and Whiteface Lodge was consistently listed as one of the top hotels in the Adirondacks.  I double checked with TripAdvisor and it was listed as the #2 hotel in the Lake Placid area.  So I thought I should give it a try.  It’s a little bit expensive, prices usually start in the high $200s for a Junior One Bedroom Suite, up to close to $1,000 for the Grand Lodge three bedroom suite.   We went mid week in May so we got a bit of a deal, we got the Deluxe One Bedroom Suite for about $300 / night.
