Placid Bay Hotel is Lake Placid’s first ever boutique “Smart Hotel”

Located directly on the beautiful shores of Lake Placid, the Adirondack Park of Upstate New York’s most desirable lake and four-season Olympic town!

Surrounded by the beauty of the Adirondack High Peaks region, Placid Bay Hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to Lake Placid’s Main Street and all of the area’s wonderful attractions and activities; the perfect place to rest easily after a wonderful day of hiking, paddling or skiing and enjoying the town and region no matter what season it is!

This beautiful property was family owned, operated and maintained at a high level for over 40 years, establishing it as one of the top places to stay in the Lake Placid, NY area. With a property-wide, comprehensive renovation completed in July of 2021 by the new ownership, Placid Bay was transformed into a luxurious, modern, Scandinavian - inspired “Smart Hotel” set directly on Lake Placid with views of Whiteface Mountain.

Located just 20 minutes from world-class Olympic ski resort Whiteface Mountain, with the largest vertical drop in The East, and surrounded by all of the High Peaks, you’ll find yourself immersed in the awe-inspiring natural beauty of wildlife, sweeping landscapes, mountain and lake vistas, and clear starry nights. Top rated restaurants, breweries, shopping, and other activities abound in this international Alpine destination.

Our contactless, WiFi-enabled remote room locks allow for a safe and streamlined check-in process with all independent access doors keeping everyone safe. Placid Bay Hotel combines the ease of independent travel with the peace of mind knowing our friendly team members are only a simple text message away for anything you might require.
