Hotel Nikko San Francisco

My husband and I stayed at the Union Square Hotel on a recent visit to the Bay Area several weeks ago, and I feel that I can safely recommend this property to anyone who is seeking accommodations in a San Francisco Luxury Hotel. We could have spent our entire stay in the hotel because it had everything that we needed, included world-class dining options, dry cleaning, 24-hour room service, a fitness center, and wireless Internet throughout the premises. Both of us particularly appreciated the fact that the entire property is smoke-free. We spent much of our time in the fifth-floor solarium enjoying the whirlpool and swimming pool. I had my hair done in their salon and could not have been happier with the results.

We took advantage of the hotel’s central location to explore San Francisco, and I loved the fact that they offer their guests town car service. They also provided us with a free local newspaper every morning, which really helped us to plan our daily explorations.

Lake Placid Lodge

When one thinks of Lake Placid Lodge, images of pine trees, rustic Arts and Craft architecture appear, and oh yes, stone fireplaces.  Perhaps the most storied of all Lake Placid Hotels it started out as a rugged camp whose twig-framed porch looked out on Lake Placid. Today, the hand built arts and Crafts Main Lodge reflects the same wood-hewn aura. Every lodge room and suite, as well as those in the Lakeside Building, Overlook, and the individual cabins feature stone fireplaces ready for lighting and rustic master-crafted wood furniture.

With its abundance of snow and crisp cold air, Lake Placid offers skiing – downhill at Whiteface Mountain, and cross-country at the Whiteface Club and the Resort Nordic Center. The site of the 1980  “Miracle on Ice”, the remaining Olympic facilities offer ice skating, bobsledding, and gondola rides up Whiteface. Winter is only half the picture. The surrounding six-million acre Adirondack Park  is a treasure trove of hiking and biking trails for the adventurous while others choose to stay local for golfing, fishing, horseback riding, or perusing the quaint shops in the storybook Lake Placid Village.

While the Lake Placid Hotel and its celebrated restaurants are always open to guests twelve-years and older, families with younger children can book a stay during one of the four annual  “Family Friendly Days” periods.

The Segamore Hotel

When doing research to find one of the best Lake George Hotels, I discovered The Segamore Hotel. The Segamore Hotel has a spa that allowed me to get a massage and a facial to really relax during my vacation. The spa packages allowed my family to save a lot of money when we enjoyed a day on the slopes. The Segamore Hotel has a kids club that is unlike any other Lake George Resort. The kids club allowed my kids to be able to enjoy fun activities that kept them engaged and entertained when we were not out and about during the day. I also really loved the many dining options that were available. We were able to have great food without having to travel far away to get it. Each restaurant had great options for my children to try so that they were able to enjoy their meals and we were able to eat in peace.
