Blogger Stumbles on Hotel Clarence
Written by Seneca Daily
Travel Blogger “Mardi” writes a blog on Food Buzz under the nomen, “eatlivetravelwrite.” The blogger recently toured the Finger Lakes from Ithaca to Seneca Falls and writes about a visit to the Hotel Clarence and Knapp Vineyards, among other things.
Of the Clarence, the author writes, “We headed on to Seneca Falls, where I’ll admit I stumbled upon the recently renovated Hotel Clarence purely by chance.

Acquired in 2007 by J&J Hospitality, whose intention was to revitalize the hotel and once again make it a centerpiece of the Finger Lakes region, the Hotel Clarence was born. As The Seneca County Chamber of Commerce puts it: “The theme of the beloved movie ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ permeates every aspect of the hotel and reminds the traveler of times gone by. This gem should not be missed by those planning a trip to upstate New York. It *is* a pretty “wonderful place.”
