How it Ranks: Lake Placid Lodge ranks #1 out of 30 Adirondacks Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.

Our Take: This rustic lodge set on the shore of Lake Placid in the Adirondacks is stunning inside and out, according to recent guests. Typical of most Relais & Châteaux properties, accommodations are exquisitely designed with rustic objets d'art, custom-made beds crafted from tree limbs and the occasional private balcony overlooking the waterfront. And then there are the hotel's romantic cabins, which offer couples a more secluded (but still lavish) retreat. Travelers love the world-class dining at Artisans restaurant and Maggie's Pub, and report that the hotel staff go above and beyond to provide first-rate service. Do note that the Lake Placid Lodge only welcomes guests ages 12 and up. Also keep in mind that if you frequent Relais & Châteaux and are part of the hotel's exclusive Club 5C, you are eligible to receive extra perks, such as complimentary room upgrades, for choosing to stay here.
