The Marriott Westchester, a Stone's Throw from Historic Hudson Valley

1 comment

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
  • Bronx Zoo
What we most loved:
1. The fun details with the amenities in the room.
2. The pool was warm and inviting despite being inside since it’s atrium style and there’s a hot tub nearby. (see photo below)
3. They have a fabulous farm-to-table sustainable restaurant on-site, called Cooper’s Mill which we loved. (see our separate write-up review on our dinner)
4. The service was top notch.
5. They have a great fitness facility. (see photo above)
