We planned a 2-day getaway here, just in time for a record-setting nor'easter.... We stayed in the "Avignon" room, #153 (see photos, if I can figure out how to upload them) and it is a very nice room with a great view. Then the blizzard came through, and we got stuck for two extra days.... the staff were super friendly,...

My son goes to Cornell and stayed here last year for the first time. Returned again this year, for a visit and to celebrate my birthday - which the hotel staff acknowledged. Everyone that works here from the management on down make you feel like the only guest at the hotel. The spa is heaven. The beds and linens are...

Wife and I did the Valentines day package with a couples massage and dinner. The room was very nice. Great view from the balcony, a nice fireplace, and a Jacuzzi tub. The bar in the lobby served local wines with local spirits, all very good. The couples massage was fantastic and it was nice using the steam room in the...

My wife and I stayed here for Valentines Day. Our room was large, bright, and furnished in French Provincial. There was a free happy hour in the evening with free wine, cheese & crackers, & fruit. Our breakfast in the Bistro was excellent: Good service and excellent food quality. We plan to stay here again and highly recommend it.

What a treat this was! Cozy and ideally located. Love that all the pet friendly rooms had direct access to outside. The happy hour in the evening was also a nice touch. Would definitely be back. Would love to be here in the summer!

Quick weekend trip to enjoy Ithaca. The staff, the rooms, the atmosphere were all wonderful! Happy hour with local wines and roaring fireplace felt like home. Anyone on the staff were always courteous and ready to help with a smile. The family owned vibe was truly inviting and comforting. The spa was well run, tranquil and met all expectations for...

Comfortable friendly property in low competition Ithaca. Definitely better than most hotels in Ithaca. Price is fair and we will return. Nice touch to offer free Finger Lakes wines however I find the local wines very disappointing.

My husband and I dropped our older son off for an event at Cornell University. I picked La Tourelle based on online reviews and was not disappointed. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the evening tastings of the local wine and also spent time by the camp fire for the FireLight camping guests. We preferred the...

We traveled from Florida to escape the heat and tour the Finger Lakes wineries and selected La Tourelle as our base of operations. This was a very charming & comfortable hotel and we were pleased with the size, cleanliness and furnishings of our rooms. The hotel was very quiet and the staff could not have been more friendly & accommodating....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you're looking for a getaway that offers deluxe accommodations; fabulous food; great wine; a destination spa and adventure experiences all nestled in the gorgeous New York Finger Lakes wine region, you've found it! La Tourelle's 54 deluxe rooms have dreamy pillow-top mattresses to ensure a restful night's sleep. You'll need that sleep if you plan on touring the wine trails; visiting the museums; taking a hike in any of five state parks, or participating in the numerous adventure excursions available in "gorges" Ithaca. After experiencing all that Finger Lakes wine country has to offer, you'll really appreciate getting pampered at August Moon Spa. We offer all the services you expect from a destination spa, plus we have two Tranquility Rooms where you can relax and enjoy cuisine from our "farm-to-table" menu at The Bistro. ... more   less
