Did you know that Lakeside Chautauqua’s Hotel Lakeside has been named ‘Best Hotel Room View’ on the 2014 Best of Ohio Reader’s Ballot from Ohio Magazine?

The waterfront hotel, built in 1875, features a beautiful wrap-around porch, showcasing the most dramatic views of Lake Erie and the islands. Many Lakesiders enjoy this peaceful setting to reconnect with friends, relax with a good book or end the day with a sunset.

The list of Ohio Magazine’s winners was generated by votes cast by www.ohiomagazine.com visitors over the course of three weeks this past fall. The full list of winners was included in Ohio Magazine’s January 2014 issue, alongside this year’s editor’s picks.

The 2014 Best of Ohio Reader’s Ballot showcases 50 winners in four different categories: entertainment, lodging & attraction, shopping and food & drink.

Congratulations to other local Ohio Magazine winners, including Kalahari for ‘Best Indoor Waterpark’ and ‘Best Spa,’ Cedar Point for ‘Best Attraction,’ Magee Marsh Wildlife Area for ‘Best Bird Watching’ and the Marblehead Lighthouse State Park for ‘Best Picnic Spot.’

Thank you for voting and choosing Hotel Lakeside as the ‘Best Hotel Room View.’ We agree that the historic hotel showcases the best views of Lake Erie and the islands.
