Rest easy, travelers, a Catskill Mountain resort was named the best hotel in New York state.
Upstate NY hotel Wylder Windham was recently awarded the top spot on Travel + Leisure readers’ five favorite New York state resorts of 2023.
Readers were asked to rate hotels all over the world by their rooms and facilities, location, service, food and value. Final scores were averages of their responses. Wylder Windham scored a 97.33 out of 100. The next top scoring hotel in New York was the Mirror Lake Inn and Spa in Lake Placid.
The list was rounded out by Inns of Aurora Resort & Spa in Aurora, Lake Placid Lodge in the Adirondacks, and the towering castle of Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz.
Wylder Windham is located along the Batavia Kill River in the former Thompson House resort which ran for 160 years. The 20-acre property is filled with seven updated resorts with modern amenities with a feel that harkens back to the area’s Borscht Belt days, the list highlights.
There are plenty of outdoor amenities to get guests outdoors, from bikes to borrow, fly fishing, or a vintage shuttle to the nearby ski slopes on Windham Mountain, a heated pool, pickleball courts and wood-fired saunas.
Wylder Windham also came in at number 8 in T+L’s list of best hotels in the continental United States and tied for spot number 65 on the list of best hotels in the world. The resort shared the spot with The Oberoi Marrakech in Marrakesh, Morocco.
