The Spencer begins its second century with improvements to the hotel’s physical facility, as well as enrichment programming designed to expand on the Chautauqua experience. We continue to offer guests the modern amenities and conveniences of the 21st century in an extraordinary American setting. 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. Hand-painted murals grace many of our walls, floors and ceilings. Guests will also find faux finishes and yards of English lace in addition to custom-made drapes, dust ruffles and lampshades. The parlor and dining room have Strauss crystal, Oriental carpets and beautiful Victorian antiques. An elevator services all four floors. Four floors of porches grace the front of the hotel, and are appointed with Victorian sofas, chairs and rockers which overlook the famous Amphitheatre.The Spencer offers cozy areas that are perfect for playing a board game, curling up with a good book, or engaging in conversation. During pleasant weather our front porches provide a prime vantage point to take in the essence of Chautauqua.

"I had never heard of your website, but my nephew has hotel experience and mentioned it. This is the first time I have had to book a block of rooms for a family wedding, and I was somewhat concerned about how to go about it. Your website made it easy, and and I would highly recommend it." K.C. - Catskills, NY
