The Best Western Plus, Hammondsport Hotel Has It’s First Birthday!

On June 30th, 2017, our hotel was very excited to celebrate our 1-year anniversary since opening our doors! We are very happy to say that our first year was a HUGE success, as we received excellent guest feedback and won several prestigious awards, including:

-Best Western Plus/Premier Highest Service Score Award

-Hotels.com Gold Award 2017

None of this would be possible without the excellent feedback that we have received from our customers. We are humbled and thankful to all of our guests, past and future, for their continued support and feedback for our hotel. Thank you to all of our guests who have made our first-year special, and we look forward to what the future will bring!
