    Mirbeau Inn & Spa
    Skaneateles, NY
    #1 in Best Hotels in The Finger Lakes
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 550 reviewsTripAdvisor (550)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    The Mirbeau has a French aesthetic, taking its design cues from the Old World wine country. Stone turrets adorn the main inn, while four cheery yellow cottages cluster around the pond. The gardens are also reminiscent of France, modeled after Claude Monet's infamous gardens at Giverny. Naturally, the Mirbeau is a favorite with couples thanks to top-notch amenities like the 14,000-square-foot spa and its various treatments. (Some do note, though, that services can be rather pricey.) Recent guests also say that the accommodations are charming, with cozy fireplaces and oversized soaking tubs. Previous visitors compliment the cuisine served in the Dining Room and the Aqua Terrace, as well the extensive selection at the Wine Bar. You'll find the Mirbeau Inn & Spa on West Genesee Street Road, just west of downtown Skaneateles, New York, in the Finger Lakes region.

    The Statler Hotel at Cornell University
    Ithaca, NY
    #2 in Best Hotels in The Finger Lakes
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 739 reviewsTripAdvisor (739)
    Free WiFi

    This luxury hotel appeals to students and parents seeking a serene and homey place to hang their hat. Located in Ithaca, New York, on Cornell's campus, The Statler is run by the university's prestigious School of Hotel Administration and staffed almost entirely by students. But just because it's run by the university, doesn't mean you should expect lackluster service. Recent travelers report that the management students go above and beyond for their guests. Other visitors say the accommodations boast comfy bedding and the best eagle-eye views of campus. After exploring the area, previous patrons recommend recharging at one of the hotel's four casual dining establishments. There is also a golf course nearby and a fitness center on-site, though Ithaca's other downtown attractions are over 2 miles from this hotel.
