I was recently invited to stay at the newly restored Queensbury Inn, located in historic Glens Falls, New York. Growing up around the corner from this quaint town in Upstate New York, the Queensbury Inn holds a special place in my heart. I went there as a child with my grandparents and family so I was especially thrilled to visit the beautifully restored hotel. Its gorgeous lobby is complete with the most elegant moldings, chandeliers, and period details. They managed to update the guest rooms to feel fresh and chic while still maintaining the historic and quaint ambiance. It’s definitely not any easy feat, yet the Queensbury Inn succeeding in doing just that. The amenities, including a pool, pub, restaurant, and the front desk’s impeccable service, will definitely have my family and I returning many more times.Read more
