About the Athenaeum Hotel

The Athenaeum Hotel, built in 1881 in grand Second Empire-style, is one of the few vacation hotels of its kind still in operation in the United States. Located adjacent to the Amphitheater at the center of the Chautauqua Institution grounds, the hotel has provided accommodations for distinguished speakers and performers throughout its long history. Thomas Edison is said to have used the floor-to-ceiling windows of the dining room to escape overzealous admirers. In 1996, the Athenaeum became the Executive Mansion of the President of the United States when President William Clinton spent a week at the hotel preparing for his debate with Sen. Robert Dole.

United Stated Presidents, world dignitaries, renowned authors and many others who have helped shape the world we live in have spoken on Chautauqua Institution’s Amphitheater’s stage. Chautauqua Institution’s nine-week summer season holds something for all members of the family. Make The Athenaeum Hotel your home at Chautauqua this summer.
