Overall we were not disappointed. If you are thinking of splurging for the lake view room save your money and use it to enjoy a drink on the porch. While we asked for a lake view room this is one hotel where I don't think it is necessary to have one. The windows are small and there was only one...

Standout qualities are absolutely the historic charm and elegance of this grandiose property. From the moment you arrive you can feel what life might have been like in a bygone era - the pomp and circumstance of upper class living its heyday. What an unmatched feeling and experience!

A bit of a blast from the past, but isn't that what you expect when going to Cooperstown? Rooms are classic Americana in decor. Bathrooms are spacious and luxurious.

Many people run to Trip Advisor when they have a bad hotel experience and I tend to discount those reviews if the experience appears to be the result of 1) an exaggerated sense of entitlement or unrealistic expectations on the part of the guest, or 2) unfortunate stuff that the hotel tried hard to address. This review recounts a bad...
