“an all-suite hotel with kitchenette at affordable prices”
The Northwoods Inn is an historic hotel with an abundance of character and a fascinating history. Since the 1800s, Lake Placid has been a destination to tourists and outdoor enthusiasts. By 1900, Lake Placid was recognized as a resort destination with seven major hotels and several smaller inns and cottages. A hotelier named Frank Swift had the dream to build a modern, fireproof hotel, where he could host high profile guests with all of the luxuries and comforts of a city hotel. In 1926 he achieved this goal with the construction of the Hotel Marcy. The grandest hotel in Lake Placid, Hotel Marcy was named for Mount Marcy, the grandest mountain in New York. In addition to the new building, the Hotel Marcy included several former summer homes to be rented as cottages, and the old Northwoods Inn, which was used for housing staff, storage and kitchen facilities. In total, the hotel included 160 guest rooms, 125 bathrooms, and a dining room and meeting space. The Marcy was unlike anything else in Lake Placid and it was immediately popular with both local residents and visitors. It was a choice location for weddings, parties and community events. The hotel also attracted many tourists including celebrities George Burns and Gracie Allen, Kate Smith, and others from that bygone era. Today, the Northwoods Inn continues its efforts to redefine affordable hospitality, in a pre-eminent Lake Placid location. It has recently added Free Wi-Fi in all guestrooms and public areas, is refurbishing its roof top event facilities, and continues its renovation of guest rooms.
