The Athenaeum Hotel, established 1881

Throughout Chautauqua Institution’s summer season, Athenaeum 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.

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.
