Going down hill fast. Over the past year and a half I would visit at least twice a month for hair, nails and products. It was a nice escape. If someone is looking for a first class salon/spa I am sorry to say this is no longer it. Over the past few months I have noticed a change in front desk staffs attitude and upkeep of the facility. It went from being one of my favorite places to a below average spa. A prime example is equipment breaking, i.e. the nail polish removing tool was not replaced for weeks ,when I am paying for a manicure I would hope for the correct equipment. Oh and then this past week lack of heat in the changing room for massages. This week, I received a call saying the stylist, Kat (Nails, hair and tanning), who I had seen from day one was no longer there. I was always impressed with how much pride Kat took in her work and she went above and beyond each visit. I could deal with poor upkeep but that combined with this is a deciding factor for me. I am waiting to hear where my stylist ends up and will be moving all of my business there.
Disclaimer: my father worked at IBM so the Glen and Country Club are hallowed ground for me, so have fond memories of the place since childhood. For Christmas 2016 I stayed at Traditions to be close to my parents house, while providing the opportunity for my yearly hike at the Glen. The rooms while small, are decently appointed although a mini-fridge would be nice. My family had Christmas eve dinner and it was much better than expected. Food is not always available so keep that in mind if you are expecting room service. For those who like peace and quiet, Id highly recommend this over alternatives in downtown Binghamton, or over on the Vestal Parkway. The real draw here is a serene location and an outdoor wonderland right outside the back door. As long as you arent expecting a 5-star resort with a commensurate price, this place boasts a young but welcoming staff who goes out of their way to make for a pleasant stay. I enjoyed it so much I am considering a reunion here with high school friends in the coming year. Recommended.
My husband hosted my 50th birthday party at The Spa at Traditions. He worked with the staff to set up a party room and create a wonderful day of pampering for me and my friends. It was so nice to spend a cold winter day wrapped in a luxurious Spa robe, and enjoying mani-pedis, massage and the Salt Cave. The staff was friendly and fabulous. My friends and I had a great time. We ended the afternoon with a Happy Hour upstairs in the Tavern - it was such a treat to have such a getaway event right here in town.
Endroit calme, entouré dun terrain de golf. Accueil agréable. Chambre 2101. équipement ok, décor vieillot, literie à améliorer. Bar/resto "The Tavern" dans les locaux de lhôtel est un très bon endroit pour siroter un verre et pour le repas du soir.
I was struggling to find a salon in the area that met my needs and fulfilled my random needs to change my look. Traditions not only had that in one of their best stylists, Ashley Roberts, they also have excellent spa services. Ive started to see Elisabet for massages and I couldnt be more pleased with the services. The staff also respond very quickly to feedback and are fast to work with clients to make sure they have a positive experience. Go there!
Our extended family had Fathers Day brunch at Traditions. The omelets were great, the bacon crisp but otherwise it was disappointing. The pastries were not fresh, waffles were cold, hard to get the waitresses attention for coffee and drink refills and tables were very close together so it made walking from buffet to table difficult especially since we had a blind person with a guide dog. This was our first time there and probably wont be back.

We held a family banquet for more than 30 at Traditions, with several changes and difficulties along the way. They were wonderfully accommodating, and helped us to set it up. Throughout our dealings they were polite, helpful and professional. The event itself was beautiful, with good meals, contact to make sure all went well, and again, courtesy throughout. We could not have chosen a more lovely or memorable setting for our event.
Went to traditions for a burger for me and a salad for my beauty Queen Kit Kat. Our waitress (bartender) was excellent....food was great. I just wonder why the fireplace wasnt going as it was raining out Maybe management needs to get on their toes Or Traditions should find someone who CAN. Our visit overall was nice and glad to hear Jim is still the Chef. Watson would be glad.
Came here for an anniversary party.It is a lovely,older(albeit only a bit dated) hotel.The rooms were as expected,and the gas fireplace was the winner(as the temperature only reached the mid 20s).The staff went out of their way to guide us toward hiking activities before our massages.The young man at the front desk(sorry cant remember his name)was exceptional and went out...
I went for a relaxation massage. The massage was fantastic and I even got some very reasonable add-ons, a honey heel glaze wrap and a sinus treatment with an accupressure facial massage. My massage therapist was wonderful, as was my whole experience there. Ive gone a few times with my husband for couples massages and weve never been disappointed.
Beautiful holiday Decor convenient breakfast in the morning. Sitting room by the fire to read the paper is priceless. The traditional feel is very home-like. The staff are very courteous and helpful. Some rooms smell a little musty, but it goes away. We usually have 2 adjoining rooms. It feels like home and I would not stay anywhere else.
They treat their employees like slaves. They make them work for almost minimum wage and dont get appropriate tips on events that that can cost over $30,000, maybe 40-50 dollars if they are lucky serving and working their ass. Not somewhere I would spend my money! Will never hold an event their again after I found out this information.
I recently had my hair and makeup done at the Spa for a wedding that I was attending. Not only was I super pleased with the results but there was no wait time and both my appointments were done in a little over an hour. I would highly recommend the stylists and cosmetologist there. They were very friendly and did just what I wanted.
The spa is professional friendly and relaxing. Its fabulous to have this locally and to feel like you left town to go somewhere glamorous! The atmosphere is lovely. I have enjoyed the salt sanctuary, mani-pedis, facials and massages. All were great! Ive given gift certificates as gifts that were enthusiastically received.
For a banquet type event, Traditions is a nice choice. The food was very good, and the rooms are nice. I wish there was a bar for drinks, but the event I attended did not include that. There may be an option to include one, but I dont know as I did not organize the event. Overall it was a very good choice for a banquet.
The salt spa at Traditions is a relaxing and peaceful experience. In addition to the hour of quiet relaxation, it is also very beneficial to the lungs. The Hymalayan salt detoxifies and helps to bring the body into a blissful, balanced state of better health. I highly recommend this wonderful experience.
