What our guests are saying
"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."--
Seneca County Chamber of Commerce
“Wonderful Hotel, Friendly Staff!”
My son goes to Hobart College and my husband and I were up visiting him for Parent's Weekend. We stayed at the Hotel Clarence, which was about 15 minutes from the campus. This is a new hotel with a European feel.
The rooms are tastefully decorated and have wonderful bedding and walk-in showers. The only thing I felt the bathroom needed was a few more hooks to hang those wonderful bath sheets and a place to hang a washcloth in the shower. However neither of those things made our stay any less pleasant. We had drinks in the bar, which was comfortable and cozy.
We had dinner in hotel’s restaurant, The Kitchen at Hotel Clarence - (formerly known as the Divine restaurant). The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. If you are looking for a light breakfast this is perfect way to start your day.
Hotel Clarence is a great new addition to downtown Seneca Falls.
“Ultra Euro Chic!”
Stayed here only one night while visiting the Finger Lakes but it was beyond wonderful. Recently renovated and opened in July ‘09, this hotel will remind you of a modern boutique hotel in Berlin or New York City.
Loads of original character fortified by a simple but stunning renovation—pristine white tile baths, chandeliers, elegant drapery panels flanking tall windows, flat screen TVs with satellite service, free Wi-Fi and full service. The bed was the ultimate in comfort. And the adjoining restaurant's name, The Kitchen at Hotel Clarence - (formerly known as the Divine restaurant), says it all. Wonderfully prepared food in ample but not overwhelming servings with local wines and a full service bar.
We got an exceptional room rate on the Internet - wished we had just used this for base for our entire trip. It's 20-30 minutes away from Sheldrake Point Vineyards on Lake Cayuga.
It is quiet, hip (in the best sense of the word), had all needed amenities, beautifully decorated and cheaper than many motel franchises.
