Cooperstown is home to one of the best hotels in the world. Travel and Leisure magazine ranked the Top 500 World's best and Otesaga Resort made the list. The magazine says the hotel makes a 'grand first impression' with it's 30-foot pillars and lengthy walkway to the entrance.

Great place for a wedding or a round of golf.

Otesaga joins the Ritz Carlton, St Regis, The Plaza and Trump International Hotel as the best in New York state.  13 New York hotels made the list, but Otesaga was the only one outside the city.

Despite being away from New York City, a room at Otesaga will cost you about the same or more than one in the Big Apple.  Rates run from $319 a night to $529 in the summer and fall.
