One of America's grand dame hotels is rolling out a special to commemorate its upcoming centennial. The Otesaga in Cooperstown, perched on the shores of Lake Otsego and a stone's throw from America's richest baseball museum, is surrounded by history and is history itself.

A century old on July 12, 2009, the hotel is part of literary history (the lake is referred to as "Glimmerglass" in writer James Fenimore Cooper's Leatherstocking Tales); was an architectural marvel when it opened, with phones in every room and central heating, designed by the same fellows that built The Dakota in New York City; and a celebrity haunt, with baseball players like Ty Cobb, Cy Young and Joltin' Joe DiMaggio holed up.
