Smart boutique hotel to shake up Lake Placid

by | 26 Jul 2020 | Projects

Prestige Hospitality Group has announced the opening of Lake Placid Inn, a 40-key hotel in one of New York State’s finest tourism destinations.

Perfectly situated to attract outdoor enthusiasts, the newbuild Lake Placid Inn has now started welcoming guests. We take a closer look at this exciting independent hotel.

Action and adventure in Lake Placid

If the name Lake Placid rings a bell, it might be because this was the title of an infamous horror movie in the late 1990s. The real-life Lake Placid in New York State, however, couldn’t be more different to the Hollywood tale and is instead a hotbed of activity for those seeking action and adventure.

The picturesque village, located in the Adirondacks close to the Canadian border, is notable for being the venue for both the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics, as well as a number of other sporting events. It’s surrounded by impressive scenery, including mountains, rivers and, of course, a beautiful lake. The new Lake Placid Inn is located right in the centre of the village, providing an ideal base for those wishing to get active and discover the local area.

John Garito, the hotel’s general manager, said: “The Lake Placid Inn is a welcome retreat for outdoor enthusiasts, couples and families exploring the Adirondack region. Our spacious rooms, comfortable community areas, and unique amenities are situated opposite picturesque Mirror Lake and within walking distance of historic Main Street.”

Following in the footsteps of elite athletes

Lake Placid Inn is a quaint, but fresh and unfussy property on Mirror Lake Drive that opened at the beginning of July 2020. It boasts 40 well-appointed rooms and suites, which afford guests unparalleled panoramic views out over the lake and mountains beyond. The property occupies the former site of the Mountain House and National Sports Academy, a private prep school for elite winter athletes, and houses a fitness centre, gift shop, mini-market and meeting facilities.

MAGDI Corporation owns the hotel, while Prestige Hospitality Group is the hospitality development consultant and will provide third-party management services, with responsibility for daily operations, fiscal management, and sales and marketing.

Justin D Smith, president of Prestige Hospitality Group, said: “It was a privilege to be a part of the development team that created such a beautiful and unique hotel. We are honoured to add this to our management portfolio.”
