My partner and I stayed at The Rhinecliff in January during a very cold and snowy weekend. We were delayed getting out of the city by about 5 hours. So you can imagine how sluggish and "annoyed" we were by the time we finally arrived. (In all fairness, there was a fire on the track leaving the station and it was absolutely NOT Amtrak's fault that we were soooo delayed, but still, we were not in the best mood by the time we got to the hotel).
Upon check in, the receptionist was so sweet that she said even though the wine tasting ended a few hours ago, they would give it to us anyway as they realized how much we needed alcohol to feel better.
The rooms were great and spacious. With the snow falling down outside, we were semi-trapped at the hotel the entire weekend but it was probably the most romantic time we spent together. It was so exquisite to see snow falling, the Hudson River freezing over, and grabbing some wine with the best bartender - Jay - around.
We left feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. We have been recommending this place to anyone who will listen and it's taken me too long to finally write this review.
What a great escape from NYC.
