We had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. We were in town for five nights to conduct research at the FDR Library in Hyde Park, about 15 minutes north on Route 9. We asked for and received a microwave and fridge, then went over to a nearby Price Chopper and bought some breakfast and lunch items. We didn't bother with the hotel breakfast, which costs extra; but free coffee is available 24 hours a day. The room was quiet and spacious and everything was spotlessly clean. The front desk staff were as friendly as could be. We requested extra pillows and blankets and they were delivered almost immediately. I am not crazy about having the bathroom sink outside the bathroom, but at least in this case the bathroom, and the alcove with the sink, were right inside the entryway in the room so that the light in the alcove would not disturb one's travel partner if one had to use the sink in the middle of the night. The property is adjacent to the Samuel F. B. Morse home and gardens. The Morse site has beautiful walking trails. Speaking of exercise, the hotel fitness room was very clean and was equipped with two elliptical trainers, three treadmills, a stair stepper, and a couple of stationary bicycles. There were plenty of clean towels, and the drinking water was in good supply, as were cups, as well as disinfectant wipes. The pool area looked very nice; I didn't go in. We ate at the Red Lobster just south on Route 9 one night . It is an older restaurant in the chain but perfectly nice. We also ate at the Culinary Institute of America three times. Call waaaay in advance for reservations. It's a great experience to visit the campus and dine in any of the restaurants there. We also ate at the Artist's Palate in downtown Poughkeepsie, Excellent! I would definitely stay in this hotel again. I will say that the mattress, although comfortable enough, did not seem to be as plush as the ones I have slept on in other Marriott hotels. I note that the negative reviews of this hotel are quite dated; perhaps the hotel has been upgraded since the time they were written. I don't think guests will encounter any of the problems described in the 2003 reviews!
