If you don’t know Tarrytown New York, it’s worth checking out next time you’re in the New York City area. An hour or so north of the city near Elmsford New York lies quaint Tarrytown, which is oozing with history in and around the town itself. The hotel features 444 rooms and suites with massive 37″ flat-panel TVs.
If you’re thinking of taking a breather in Westchester County, the Marriott Westchester is an excellent hotel choice. The property is conveniently located, reliable and there’s some interesting details you might not expect from a traditional Marriott hotel, like the adorable towel elephant with groovy glasses waiting for us on the bed when we checked in.
Given that you’re outside the sprawling urban areas, the hotel rooms and bathrooms are incredibly spacious, a godsend after a week of business travel in New York City the previous week. They also boast 300 count linens, fluffy pillows and the new Marriott Revive bed, which is available in each room.
Oh yeah, we loved the generous selection of shampoos and lotions as well, all so beautifully presented.
Below is a king suite.
They also have a generous fitness center (it was ten times better than we anticipated btw), an indoor pool and the Tatiana Day Spa. The fitness center has cardiovascular equipment, free weights, new treadmills, elliptical trainers, excercise bikes and stairclimbers.
If you’re looking for attractions nearby to take in during your stay, there are several options all within an hour of the hotel, including:
- Historic Hudson Valley – Philipsburg Manor, Sunnyside and Kykuit (Rockefeller Estate)
- West Point Military Academy
- Woodbury Commons
- Lyndhurst Castle
- Van Cortlandt Manor
- The Westchester (Upscale Mall)
- Rye Playland
