Fodor's Review

The hotel property encompasses a conference center and 18 acres overlooking the southern end of Lake George. Rooms have been refurbished but retain a traditional look. Their configurations range from studios with sleeper sofas to huge suites with fireplaces; some have lake or mountain views. The large outdoor pool looks onto the lake.

Fort William Henry Resort Hotel Review

FIRST, If you have to book here, don't use the 800 number! I reserved using the 800 number first but got a strange feeling; no reservation number and just a rather strange interaction from the other end. I called back to confirm the 2 seperate days and there was no record of my reservation. Who the heck did I give my cc# to?! Needless to say, I had to have a new one sent to me. SECOND, they are so insanely overpriced. The main hotel ($150 and

up) is acceptable. However, if you are an average person who can't afford blowing that, you are condemned to a MOTEL next to the main. It is rather insulting. It was only $50 less a night. They should have paid me to stay there. THIRD, the accomodations were horrible. When we arrived the room was near 300 degrees. It took me the entire night to regulate the temperature with windows open and using the ac as an intake fan. There was an interesting stain on the wall. Extremely dated. The bathroom is light blue, yellow, and brown. The shower was like bathing with an out of control hose. I admit, I giggled at first because of the insanity but after a fun filled experience avoiding cuts from the pressure and flooding the floor, I couldn't breathe! The exhaust fan wouldn't work and the steam was choking me. Really, I could go on but I tihnk I've made my point. The so called "resort" is of course at a beautiful setting on the lake next to several steam boat tours but there is nothing else that this place has going for it.
