Guest baths are very old. Cabinetry and toilets are very low to the ground and difficult to use even if you’re short. Very poor air conditioning in hallways and main atrium area. Staff is fabulous, however.

The Desmond offers all the comforts for a conference under one very wide roof. The restaurants are welcoming, the rooms are quiet and clean, there is plenty of space for breakout sessions. Benches outside for getting a quick fresh air break.

Good clean hotel. It was a bit pricey given it was graduation weekend. Food and drinks are pricey, but very good. I endjoyed and billiards room and my daughter did as well. I only stayed 1 night so I didn't get to check out the pool or see if there was a gym in the hotel.

I have stayed at The Desmond many times for business meetings and conferences. I have never been disappointed by the accommodations. The hotel is conveniently located and easily accessible from the NYS Thruway. The meals served at both the conferences and in the restaurant are excellent.

The Desmond offers guest rooms, a pleasant tavern, and a quality restaurant right on-site. This makes it a fine choice for the leisure or family traveler. For the business traveler, there are also small and large meeting spaces, a workout room, a pool, etc.
