The Athenaeum Hotel
The Athenaeum Hotel, established 1881

Throughout a traditional Chautauqua Institution’s summer season, Athenaeum Hotel guests are inspired by a variety of learning, recreational and entertainment programs that are all part of the unique Chautauqua experience. For the 2020 summer season, there will be no programming on the grounds of Chautauqua Institution and no gate pass or parking fees. Guests are still able to partake in all the recreational and dining options on the grounds — enjoy delicious food at Heirloom Restaurant, Afterwords Café or one of privately-owned restaurants, rent a canoe or kayak, fish, golf, or visit the Tennis Center.
During the spring and fall months, the Athenaeum Hotel acts as a host to well-organized conferences, beautiful weddings, and special events, as well as offering accommodations to those who want to take advantage of the beautiful grounds of Chautauqua Institution in the spring and fall. A Chautauqua Institution gate pass is not needed during these months.
All guests of the hotel are offered an elegant culinary experience and can relax on a 200-foot long porch that provides a picturesque view of Chautauqua Lake. A visiting architect remarked, “This is a place I truly love at Chautauqua. I feel when I settle into one of the comfortable rocking chairs on the porch, that I am in the serene embrace of a set of hands that holds me safely. There is a timeless feeling here and no disorientation.” Find respite and inspiration at the Athenaeum Hotel.
