The Spencer Hotel

First literary themed hotel in the United States: Theme Hotel and Resort with rooms dedicated to authors, in the heart of the Chautauqua Institution.

The Spencer...more captivating than opening your favorite storybook! A four-season Western New York Theme Hotel and Resort with rooms dedicated to authors, in the heart of the Chautauqua Institution. Celebrating a century of hospitality and more with our second season of enrichment workshops. All of our special packages feature one-of-a-kind spa services and world-class meals. Our unique, comfortable rooms and suites make this Western New York Theme Hotel ideal for families and business events.
All 24 of the rooms and suites were hand-painted by local artists telling the story of the author, including a small library and music of the time, and a portrait and biography of each author in the hall outside of the room.  The hotel continues to be upgraded -- with 15 new improvements this year.  Many of the suites have Jacuzzi tubs, and a sauna is available for all overnight guests.
Full week stays during the 9 week Chautauqua Season include breakfast every day and dinner five nights (Monday through Friday) each week. A gourmet breakfast is included with all stays.  Dinners can be arranged the rest of the year for groups of ten (10) or more.
