Local Attractions

The Spencer Hotel is located on the grounds of the Chautauqua Institution, a gated resort community. The Chautauqua Institution is a unique and wondrous environment that focuses on the arts and culture. During the Chautauqua Summer Season programming beginning the last Saturday in June, through the last Saturday in August we rent from Saturday to Saturday. As you check for your arrival and departure dates, please keep in mind of our seasonal policies. Please contact a reservation specialist for nightly reservations offered. During the nine week season a gate pass and parking pass is required ranging from $50-70 per person per day for the Chautauqua Institution programming. Off season we rent nightly with no gate pass or parking fee required. Automobiles are only allowed on the grounds for guest and baggage delivery during the summer programming. Please make arrangements for gate passes prior to your arrival; call the Institution's Front Gate at 716-357-6250. This will save you time on arrival.

The Chautauqua Institution is a United States National Historical District, and we are proud to be a part of it.Our guest rooms were decorated by local artists to honor the lives and works of famous authors. Each also offers a select library of their books, and musical selections are available that further convey the tone of their lives and times.
