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...

The La Tourelle Hotel is our absolute favorite place to stay in Ithaca! We love the size of the hotel and the amenities offered. The beds are really comfortable and they have double king rooms large enough to accommodate families. The access to the Buttermilk Falls trail from the back of the hotel property makes hiking/going for a run convenient....

Loved my stay at La Tourelle. My room was huge and spotless, and since my pet peeve is hotel carpeting...I was pleased to see they had laminate floors. The bed was very comfortable, and the linens were sumptuous. It was a cold weekend, and there was a crackling fire in the lobby with seating to take advantage of the warmth....

We planned a 2-day getaway here, just in time for a record-setting nor'easter.... We stayed in the "Avignon" room, #153 (see photos, if I can figure out how to upload them) and it is a very nice room with a great view. Then the blizzard came through, and we got stuck for two extra days.... the staff were super friendly,...

My son goes to Cornell and stayed here last year for the first time. Returned again this year, for a visit and to celebrate my birthday - which the hotel staff acknowledged. Everyone that works here from the management on down make you feel like the only guest at the hotel. The spa is heaven. The beds and linens are...

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!
