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 more expensive than a typical hotel room, but the rooms are more like suites.  Prices usually start in the high $200s for a Junior One Bedroom Suite, up go up to close to $900 for the Grand Lodge three bedroom suite.  We went mid week in May, so we got a bit of a deal, we reserved a Deluxe One Bedroom Suite for about $300 / night.

We loved our stay at the Lodge.  The hotel is extremely well run and has all the amenities needed for a great couples weekend, or family vacation.

Now Hopper has added support for hotel searches and booking. Unfortunately, the app is not as easy to use for hotels. It’s a bit confusing. I’ve included step by step instructions below to help you use the Hopper app to search for cheap hotels.
