Chautauqua, New York, December 8, 2015 - The Spencer Hotel & Spa, located in the heart of the historic Chautauqua Institution, was recently honored by being accepted into Select Registry, a portfolio of premier inns, bed and breakfasts, and boutique hotels throughout the United States and Canada. Only the very best properties are invited to undergo Select Registry’s rigorous quality assurance inspection; only the best of the best pass to become members of the exclusive organization.
 
“The Spencer Hotel & Spa exemplifies the high quality and exceptional service championed by Select Registry,” said Select Registry Director of Member Services, Carol Riggs. “Our member properties share an unparalleled standard of excellence; The Spencer Hotel & Spa offers this quality, plus a distinctive, authentic experience to its guests. We're proud to welcome The Spencer Hotel & Spa to our membership."
 
“It is thrilling that the Spencer Hotel and Spa is the first bed & breakfast or hotel within the Chautauqua Institution and the entire Southern Tier region of New York to meet the demanding quality standards to be chosen by Select Registry,” said Helen Edgington, owner of the Spencer Hotel & Spa.  “Whether visitors are coming to spend their summer vacation within the Chautauqua Institution, shop for art or antiques, wine taste at our 25 local wineries, partake of sailing or boating on Lake Chautauqua, or just relax and unwind at our Spa, can rest assured that they will receive outstanding hospitality, exceptional service, and well-appointed, impeccably clean rooms, as demanded by Select Registry and their clientele.”
 
The Spencer Hotel and Spa was the first literary-themed hotel in the United States, with each guest room decorated by local artists to honor the lives and works of famous authors. Each room also offers a select library of their books, and hand-painted murals grace many of the walls, floors and ceilings. Guests will also find faux finishes and yards of English lace in addition to custom-made drapes, dust ruffles and lampshades.  An elevator services all four floors. Four floors of porches grace the front of the hotel, and are appointed with Victorian sofas, chairs and rockers that overlook the famous Amphitheatre.
 
The Spencer Hotel & Spa is a bed & breakfast that serves fresh, seasonal local fruits and vegetables in its breakfast offerings, and during the summer Chautauqua Season also provides dinner five days a week to guests staying at least a week.  The hotel has an on-site beer and wine permit, so guests can enjoy a glass or bottle of top wines and regional beers on the hotel’s expansive porches or with dinner.
 
The hotel’s spa allows guests to indulge themselves through the professional pampering services of our licensed massage therapists. Guest spa experiences can include a tension-melting session in our custom-made sauna and the all-cotton lushness of our monogrammed robes.
