We drove to The Castle from Hyde Park in no time, so it's a great base from which to go to the Culinary Institute for lunch or the FDR home or museum for a quick visit. The Castle staff is superb. They did not miss a beat. Our room was spacious with a great bathroom in which two people can easily get ready at the same time. We were greeted with a glass of champagne when we checked in and had a fridge in the room stocked with soft drinks and water. We met friends there for drinks and dinner. There is a separate bar where you can hear yourselves talk with a nice, sophisticated atmosphere with great bartenders and staff. Our dinner was excellent with a wide variety from which to choose, and the service was top-notch again. I made use of the fitness facility, and there is a full spa that I did not use but will next time. The history of the place is very interesting, and it was conveniently located to Woodberry Common Outlets and fairly close to West Point, where we were meeting for a reunion. I highly recommend The Castle.

This was a very comfortable friendly hotel, with helpful caring staff and very good food. The room was spacious with good seating and well appointed bathroom. The fruit at breakfast was unusually good and there were delicious fresh baked tiny moreish baked goods. Dinner was excellent

We went this summer to the castle to escape the NYC heat. The location was very good since it was only an hour away but felt far enough outside the city and the air was much better. The breakfasts were very nice and delicious.

The reason for the average rating is because I didn't particularly like the service especially the welcome receptionist. I thought the rooms were mediocre especially the small windows. I thought the price was high. Finally I said it was our anniversary when I booked the hotel and we never received any special attention. The spa was not open.

If you are looking to leave the city during the summer this could be a good option, but I do think they could be doing a better job having such an amazing property!

It was our second time to visit the Castle and yet another exceptional experience. Traveling with a 10-year old, this is a perfect place to stay. The hotel offers a pool with a waterfall, music and a bar, large rooms, and it is located near the heart of the Tarrytown village. More than anything, the staff at the Castle is beyond compare. I can't say enough about them. Every member of the staff went above and beyond what I would expect from a 5-star hotel. By the time we left, they almost felt like family. And every time I offered a tip for their service, they seemed surprised and grateful! On our last night there, one of the staff at the front desk even went to the kitchen to get us a jar to catch fireflies in the back garden. Truly a magical last night at the Castle. I would recommend guests request the rooms in the original side of the hotel, though, because they have more character. The rooms in the newer wing are roomy but more standard for a hotel. This is, by far, one of my all-time favorite destinations.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the original "castle" side.

The Castle was beyond comparison. In other words, EXCELLENT in every area. From the moment we arrived, the service and attention to detail was absolutely amazing. We never opened a door (including our car door!) and the staff's level of service was fit for a King and Queen and that is what we felt like for our entire weekend! The food was fabulous and the wine list was extraordinary. They also accommodated us like royalty for our scheduled meetings (we had one on Friday afternoon and another one on Saturday morning), and set us up in a perfect meeting area that once again was fit for Queen Elizabeth! We will return to The Castle on Hudson again!

My husband and I planned on staying one night here. It was so wonderful we spent another. We had two different suites, both beautiful. The staff was amazing, we never opened a door for ourselves. We were given champagne upon arrival. The grounds are immaculate. There was a wedding going on in the afternoon that looked amazing. The staff gave us a tour of this lovely place. We had dinner both nights in the dining room. Dinner and the buffet breakfast was perfect. I can't say enough about how great this place is. The staff went above and beyond to please. I will definitely be coming back. It's a very special place, a must do.

The Castle is absolutely beautiful - from the glowing, immaculate interior to the manicured grounds with exquisite flowers, trees and shrubs! The food is superb - omg did we eat - one night we had the tasting menu and another night we ordered ala carte. The staff is professional, helpful, friendly and courteous - they can't seem to do enough for you. We just got back from 3 nights (June 4, 5 and 6) in one of their junior suites (their bed had to be the most comfortable we have had during a hotel stay), and we feel thoroughly pampered. We were able to see many of the sites around Tarrytown and Sleep Hollow. The tours are organized and very well done - tour guides are able to answer any questions - a perfect spot for a "quick vacation" steeped in history in lovely settings. We HIGHLY recommend the Castle on the Hudson.
