New hotels plan summer openings

PENN YAN, HAMMONDSPORT--Two area hotels currently under construction are planning their official openings this summer. Both Penn Yan's Hampton Inn and Hammondsport's Best Western Hotel are now taking room reservations. Both projects are putting the final touches on their respective buildings and are looking to add available beds for traveling visitors.
The Hampton Inn is located between the Top of the Lake Restaurant and the Penn Yan Firemen's Field. Hampton Inn General Manager Jessica Bacher said the Penn Yan Hotel, which broke ground for construction in May 2015, will have 72 available rooms and up to 35 employees. However, she noted when the hotel opens, they will likely be operating with 25 to 30 employees to start. The general manager added they will likely begin the interviewing process within the next couple of weeks.
As for construction, Bacher said they are mostly finishing up the interior work, which includes some carpeting and wallpaper for many of the rooms. She noted there are some 19 different room types, which include the rooms that are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). There are also five rooms which will have walk out patios located on the ground level. Bacher said most rooms have either one king or two queen beds, with half of the building facing Keuka Lake and the other half facing the village. She estimates prices will range from $180 to $320 for in-season weekend rates.
Bacher said they have already received 60 individual reservations at the Hampton Inn. She added there are also two event rooms at the hotel, one that can hold 40 people and another that can hold 80. The manager said they have already received reservations for these rooms as well, one being for a bridal shower and another for a graduation party.
The Best Western in Hammondsport is planning its soft opening in a few weeks, setting the date for June 15. Co-owner Brian Harris said they are currently working on paving and striping at the site, along with getting some final approvals and interior work. Some of the interior work has included adding the carpeting, tiles, doors and bathroom fixtures. The project also broke ground for construction in May of last year, and is located along Route 54.
The 61-room hotel was initially slated to cost $6 million, but Harris noted "there have been some overages." He said these were choices they made to do additional work in order to make the building look higher end, adding nothing out of the ordinary came up during the construction work. Harris mentioned he is very satisfied with the way the exterior turned out at the site.
Harris said while they are currently accepting reservations, he did not have a count of how many they currently have, noting the room rates are also unpredictable as they will change from day to day. He noted they will have updates at www.thehammondsporthotel.com as work progresses at the site.
