Hotel of the week
The Hotel Saranac
Saranac Lake, New York
Cabins are the staple lodging in the Adirondack Mountains, but why not try a “distinctly contemporary” indulgence? asked Kenneth Rosen in The New York Times. Granted, the Hotel Saranac opened in 1927 and still features hardwood and terrazzo floors and a palazzo-inspired grand hall. But after a $35 million restoration, the 102-room property feels tailored to today’s expectations. Each of the “sparse but cozy” rooms and suites has a luxe bathroom with a rainfall showerhead. Downstairs, you can grab venison chili at the bar and grill, or take drinks on a terrace with views of the MacKenzie Range.
