About

Overview

Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel is a beautiful resort that earns its name as a "harbor hotel". This hotel has won numerous awards over the years, including being named USA Today's Best Waterfront Hotel. This is a Four-Diamond AAA-rated hotel that sits on the incredible gorgeous Seneca Lake. Many visitors choose Harbor Hotel for its access to the beautiful body of water and all the opportunities it provides. However, Harbor Hotel is also located in the middle of the Finger Lakes wine country, which makes it a popular place to stay for those looking to do some tastings and tours of the nearby vineyards.

There are two separate restaurants located on-property here for guests to take advantage of. The first is the Blue Pointe Grille. The Blue Pointe Grill is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In the mornings, guests can get their day started as early as 6:30 am. Breakfast items include an eggs benedict, several flavors of Finger Lakes omelets, strawberry french toast, and an Italian sausage skillet. In the evenings the restaurant serves plates like mushroom-stiffed pork tenderloin, Chilean sea bass, chicken Milanese, grilled swordfish, and semi-boneless duck with andouille sausage risotto. The second is the Coldwater Bar, which is meant more as a destination for great drinks and conversation than a full dinner.

The rooms at Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel are comfortable and spacious. Some of the amenities that guests can expect to experience as part of their stay here include complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, a coffee station on each floor, a state-of-the-art fitness center, 24-hour room service, indoor heated pool, jacuzzi, and an on-site business center should guests need it.

What activities are available at the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel?
Enjoy balmy summer nights outdoors on the hotel patio and roast some marshmallows at the fire pit for s’mores. The patio is just outside Coldwater Bar, so you can sip your cocktails and other drinks here as well. An annually held big winter event is the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel ICE bar, which turns a cold winter night into a hot party. A total of 25,000 lb of ice create a martini bar, complete with carved sculptures for a unique bar experience. If you want to hit the road, the hotel can also help you organize your Empire State Road trip, which begins at the hotel and winds its way through many attractions and sights.
What are the driving directions to the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel?
If you come from the west, get on I-90 East towards Albany and take exit 42 towards RT-14. Get on RT-14 and turn left onto Main Street. From here, continue until Franklin Street. When coming from the direction of East Albany, start off on I-90 West and merge onto I-88. Continue on this road, which then becomes I-81 South. Continue on NY RT-17W towards Owego and take exit 52B. Get to RT-14N and continue until you reach Franklin Street.
Which Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel rooms are especially recommended?
Travelers seeking a thoroughly relaxing stay at this accommodation should consider the spa bath suites with included hot tubs. Families can especially benefit from the king-size rooms with pullout sofas, as the hotel does not provide extra beds. For some eye candy, the lake view rooms are especially coveted, and some of them even have a private patio. (Prices checked 27/06/19).
