Room and Amenities were very high standard. Nothing more need be said of them. The outstanding feature was the attentive and friendly staff who again and again went well beyond the call of duty. Nothing was a trouble, even some unusual requests which were dealt with by different staff but always with interest, care and enthusiasm. This hotel is to...

The Harbor Hotel is an amazing hotel and would recommend this highly to others. It is a little on the expensive side, however the amenities are superb, the staff is very friendly and the hotel is in meticulous condition. The bed in our suite was probably the most comfortable I've ever experienced in a hotel. I don't normally write up...

Traveled to Watkins Glen for a convention held at the Harbor Hotel. The room was spacious, sunny, and the view of Seneca Lake was marvelous. The hotel has good quality restaurants, a caring and considerate staff, and is perfectly located to take advantage of the wine district, sunset cruises, the Watkins Glen International Raceway, and special events that seem to...

What an amazing hotel. We were here for a conference and my wife and I had no idea what to expect. First the room was very large, airy, clean and decorated more like a beach house than a hotel. The bathroom was big as was the shower. The room had a comfortable king bed and a sleeper sofa as well...

This is a great hotel overlooking Seneca Lake in upstate New York (Finger Lakes). We were there for a conference and the staff was plentiful and friendly throughout the 5 day stay. Three restaurants on the premises are all very nice. Also walking distance to several others. A short walk to the docks and a sunset sailing crew makes its...

Pleasantly surprised at quality of the property. Modern and clean and upscale. Very good service and right on the lake. Rooms very clean and bathrooms large with terrific shower. Restaurant and bar are nice. Food was good, not great. Location and newness of facility are the best reasons to come. I'll be back.
