USA/Mid-Atlantic: Lake Placid, NY
Lodging & Event Venues
Authentic Adirondack Ambience
Lake Placid’s remote location is definitely part of its charm, but don’t be fooled. For a small town (permanent population 2,500), it offers a wealth of big-city amenities and accommodations thanks to its Olympic history, with more than 1,000 rooms available in all shapes, sizes and types of venues.
One prime example of Lake Placid lodging is Whiteface Lodge
, a prototypical mountain hunting lodge—albeit one that has been updated, expanded and outfitted with every imaginable comfort and convenience. Constructed in 2005, Whiteface Lodge offers a total of 94 suites in ranging from one bedroom to three bedrooms, all with the appropriate and authentic Adirondack ambiance, augmented by fully-equipped kitchens, radiant-floor heat, jetted tubs, remote-control gas fireplaces, plush-top beds and flat-screen TVs. There’s also a full-service spa, gourmet restaurant, lounge and market, as well as a movie theater, bowling alley and ice skating rink (during winter months), among other top-flight amenities. Separate from the main Lodge, the property’s Club House offers meeting and event space for up to 200, with a full kitchen and heated, underground walkway for cold-weather gatherings, as well as a 3,100-square-foot enclosable terrace for outdoor occasions.
Back downtown, the Conference Center at Lake Placid
opened in May of 2011 with over 90,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space, including the 9,000-square-foot Lussi Ballroom, three different indoor and outdoor pre-function spaces, 12 breakout rooms and connection to both the 1932 Jack Shea Arena and the 1980 Herb Brooks Arena, each offering 20,000 square feet of unobstructed function space. With numerous major chain hotels nearby and direct access to Main Street’s many shops and restaurants, the Conference Center provides Lake Placid with a first-class meeting and event complex that has already attracted a number of major conferences and conventions.
