Traveling to Lake Placid mainly for the ECAC hockey tournament, the location of this hotel to Herb Brooks Arena was great. There are parking garages on premises for hotel guests (parking in town can be tough). All of the restaurants, attractions, and shops on Main Street are in walking distance. Lake view rooms are worth it.

$90 a night for a nice room and breakfast for two. There's a nice selection that you get to choose from right off the menu. There's also a pool and hot tub. This Resort is located in the middle of the village.

Perfect place for a memorable Lake Placid weekend. Splurge on a Marcy Suite 5th floor overlooking the lake with fireplace. The staff from the front desk , housekeeping and maintenance were so friendly. We used the steam room, sauna , pool and hot tubs which were awesome. Ask for a B&B rate because the breakfasts at Generations are awesome !
