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...

La Tourelle is truly a gem! Only about 1/2 mile past the entrance to Ithaca College, it is tucked back off Danby Rd a bit so you need to keep your eye out for their sign or you'll pass it. It is a small, quaint, quiet and beautiful hotel. The staff is so friendly and helpful. There is a feel...

Great place to stay just outside Ithaca. Property is gorgeous, great for walks. Room was large and comfortable. Free wine tasting in the late afternoon. Friendly staff and just a three mile rive into Ithaca.

We were very disappointed in this hotel. We like quirky boutique hotels but this is just a hotel in desperate need of renovation trying to pass as a "resort". Our bathroom was very old- 70s lighting. Bizarre unattractive furniture. No carpeting. I just wished I had stayed at the Marriott. It is nothing like it appears on the internet and...

The people who work here are courteous. The rooms are large and quiet. They offer some very nice local complimentary wines and the sitting area in which to drink them is is comfy and inviting. Breakfast in the restaurant is good. The mattresses are comfortable too. The only thing that was not up to par during our stay was the...

Room, grounds, and interior are lovely. Very clean which is a huge requirement for me. We"upgraded" for $10 more per night to a king sized bed from a queen, which I thought was a bit tacky since the place was clearly mostly empty. I do understand though that it's not a chain and therefore their bottom line is trickier. I...

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.

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend and we could not have been happier. Our room was so nice with laminate floors, beautiful rugs, and a gas fireplace...the room was very charming. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the parking area and out towards the back of the property. Even though our room was near...

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
