The Athenaeum Hotel

The Athenaeum Hotel, established 1881

Throughout Chautauqua Institution’s summer seasonAthenaeum Hotel guests are inspired by a variety of learning, recreational and entertainment programs that are all part of the unique Chautauqua experience. For 140 summers, people have come to Chautauqua’s 750-acre community to experience arts, education, concerts, lectures and lively discussions. The Chautauqua Institution gate pass, which is necessary for hotel guests, gives you access to most of the 35 other events that are offered each day.

New in 2014: The Athenaeum Hotel opens Heirloom Restaurant and offers more affordable and flexible accommodation and dining options

  • Rooms can now be booked with or without a dining plan. Guests can have three meals a day or book a room that only includes a vast breakfast buffet.
  • The hotel will offer a full service restaurant to hotel guests and visitors to Chautauqua. Affordability and speed of service are built into the menu offerings. Enjoy a new tapas and wine hour from 4:30-6 p.m. and a brand new à la carte dinner menu from 5-8 p.m. Learn more about Heirloom.


During the spring and fall months, the Athenaeum Hotel acts as a host to well-organized conferences, beautiful weddings, and special events. A Chautauqua Institution gate pass is not needed during these months.
