This was my first experience at The Rhinecliff. I wanted to get away from the city and stumbled upon this hotel doing some research on train hotels. Amtrak takes just over an hour and half from Penn Station and the local station is, literally, about a minute away from the hotel. The hotel itself is lovely - spacious rooms and bathrooms (our suite had a jacuzzi tub and a rainfall shower), a beautiful view of the Hudson, a sense of humor about itself and the trains that amble by throughout the day, and you're 5 minutes away (and an $8 cab) from Rhinebeck if you want to go out. The staff was kind, generous, and responsive. But also light touch - exactly what I was looking for. I will definitely look forward to coming back.
