I remembered the Arrowwood from a business conference many years ago, so when I needed a hotel in the Purchase area so my daughter could visit a college, I jumped at the chance to revisit.
First, this is not a hotel if you just want a quick place to sleep while doing other things in the area. Self parking is far away (and certain areas are reserved for corporate partners). Rooms are located in a maze spanning various floors and directions. For the most part it has been well kept up - not a guarantee when visiting a place you remember from yesteryear. The hotel is walking distance from nowhere, as there are no sidewalks or safe roads that go anywhere.
Check in was friendly and there was no problem. Room was nice, and the grounds are attractive. In the evening there was a free movie with popcorn, although I was the only in the room. The projector system went out of wack and there was nobody attending it, so I gave up and left.
Big disappointment was the breakfast, which I bought as part of the prepaid package. Everything in the room looked picture perfect, but that is where it ended. Every roll or cake we tried was stale and hard like a rock. Waiters would bustle around while ignoring us and we had to get up to ask for coffee. Even the people at the omelet station had no idea how to make omelets.
I believe they were planning on closing the hotel for at least a few weeks right after we left, so some things may be different now.
