BUFFALO, NY--Hart Hotels and The Krog Group announced today the official opening of Chautauqua Harbor Hotel, a $38 million luxury property on the shores of Lake Chautauqua in the village of Celoron, NY. The opening of the new 135-room world-class destination hotel coincides with the recent debut of the National Comedy Center in nearby Jamestown. The newest addition to Buffalo-based Hart Hotels’ Harbor Hotel Collection, Chautauqua Harbor Hotel brings a new level of luxury accommodations and world-class service to the region and is expected to draw visitors from around the world. The project is one of the largest private-sector-fueled, tourism-based developments to take place in Chautauqua County and received partial funding from several New York State economic development agencies.
David Hart, President and CEO of Buffalo-based Hart Hotels, Inc., said, “We are thrilled to open Chautauqua Harbor Hotel, the fifth hotel in our Harbor Hotel Collection, and bring world-class, waterfront accommodations and conference facilities to the region. We are looking forward to welcoming scores of visitors from near and far who will come year-round to enjoy the spectacular beauty of Chautauqua Lake, the new National Comedy Center, Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum, Chautauqua Institution, and other attractions.
Open year-round and located on the former nine-acre site of the Celoron Amusement Park, Chautauqua Harbor Hotel features luxury guest rooms and suites, many featuring balconies and lake views, dining at Lake House Tap & Grille, a restaurant with a large patio overlooking the lake, indoor and outdoor pools, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. Offering conference facilities not found elsewhere in western New York, the hotel’s Pier Ballroom and Conference Center comprises over 10,000 square feet accommodating up to 350 guests for corporate meetings and social events. A lakeside Carousel Bar, paying tribute to the grand carousels of yesteryear, is connected by footbridge to Sunset Island offering an unparalleled setting for wedding ceremonies, private receptions, and performances.
