A pleasant hotel just outside of Ithaca. The staff was wonderful and the rooms large and very clean. A great place to stay while visiting a child in college!The grounds are spacious and an attached spa. We would go back in a minute.

We have come back many times. The staff is great and the hotel is beautiful. Each room is unique with its own charm. A calming experience with a well appointed spa. Wine tastings from local vineyards are a treat. In a city with so many chain hotel properties, La Tourelle stands out as the one hotel to return to.

This was our first visit to Ithaca and La Tourelle. It is a wonderful quiet resort with beautiful grounds, a great wine bar, bistro and very nicely appointed rooms. We had a king room on the ground floor that had big windows, a very comfortable bed and quite a selection of books in the in room library. Unfortunately we didn't...

My friends and I really enjoyed our stay at La Tourelle. Not only does it have a very lovely family feel, but they are SO nice. The complementary wine reception every night was such a great touch and really made us feel at home. The Bistro on site was DELICIOUS and such a wonderful meal to have included with our...

Perfect spot to stay on a visit to Ithaca, away from downtown, beautiful views and friendly staff. The Bistro which is separate from the hotel was high end and not really appropriate for a quick dinner. The hotel's breakfast café hit the spot perfectly.

I have stayed here over 25 times and each time it gets better. Lovely rooms, warm staff, very clean and a great location, not far from Cornell or Ithaca college. there is a great steakhouse on the grounds and also a spa which I have not used yet!

We went for a college visit. It's the closest hotel to Ithaca College. We arrived late, but were told the procedure of checking in. The hotel was clean, quaint, and the service was great. Steak house does room service. Filet was amazing. I can't wait to stay in their 'tent' rooms in the summer.

Friends keep telling us to get a room, so we did. We were not let down by the great service. A family owned and run business, the Sunday evening FREE wine tasting by Jess provided copious amounts of new wine from our own Finger Lakes. I now have a new favorite thanks to Jess. We slept great in our cozy...

We stayed for one night and enjoyed our time immensely. The grounds are lovely and the view of Ithaca below is breathtaking. The rooms are light and roomy, and there is original regional art on the walls. The spa was terrific - we tried the goat milk and honey soak and each had a terrific massage. Don't miss the free...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you're looking for a getaway that offers deluxe accommodations; fabulous food; great wine; a destination spa and adventure experiences all nestled in the gorgeous New York Finger Lakes wine region, you've found it! La Tourelle's 54 deluxe rooms have dreamy pillow-top mattresses to ensure a restful night's sleep. You'll need that sleep if you plan on touring the wine trails; visiting the museums; taking a hike in any of five state parks, or participating in the numerous adventure excursions available in "gorges" Ithaca. After experiencing all that Finger Lakes wine country has to offer, you'll really appreciate getting pampered at August Moon Spa. We offer all the services you expect from a destination spa, plus we have two Tranquility Rooms where you can relax and enjoy cuisine from our "farm-to-table" menu at The Bistro. ... more   less
