Was in town for a class and was referred to this hotel. As other reviews have commented, the initial impression of the neighborhood was that it was rather questionable, but had no problems. Encountered a problem with the A/C unit in my room and the front desk attendant immediately put me in a different room. No problems there. Hotel is...

I booked this hotel for two people and a dog at a AAA/AARP rate of $134.10 (Plus $20 for dog). When plans changed, I changed the reservation to one person with no dog and was told rate would be the same. When I checked in (one person, no dog), desk clerk was going to charge me $161/nite and would not...

Thank you for your review. We apologize for the errors that occurred but thank you for bringing it to our attention so we could correct it for you before you departed the hotel. We do charge a fee as we are a pet friendly hotel. When you changed to a non-pet friendly room we may have missed removing the automatic...

If you are touring the Hudson River area of mansions, Rhinebeck, Culinary Institute of America, fall foliage, etc. this is a decent and economical choice to serve as your base of operations. The location is convenient to I-87, a "straight" shot up the road from Newark (EWR). Be sure to pay for the toll road option on your rental car,...

We stayed two nights here while visiting the area. The hotel was renovated not too long ago, and was clean and comfortable. Our room was fairly large, although the bathroom was small. Breakfast was fairly minimal, but adequate, with eggs and sausage, pastries, cereal, and waffles. We are normally not wild about hotel food, but were tired after walking around,...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are a convenient location for guests visiting the Hudson Valley and especially convenient to the historic district. Next time ask us for a map there are several parking lots in the uptown area that would be helpful for you. Do try us again. There really are many options for...

This hotel has all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay! Our room was immaculate; the bathroom was small - TINY - but sparkling clean with lots of supplies! The business center is one of the few I've found that was easy to access, everything worked and always available. The machines in the fitness center actually worked!

Stayed here for the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool festival. They just did a $6 million overhaul of the building. It is a triangular shaped building and it looks like there had been a center triangular courtyard open to the air which is now enclosed with a ceiling that is mostly solid with a few skylights. It is called the Garden...

Thank you for your very detailed review. Happy to hear you enjoyed the new suites we added. The center courtyard does offer great year round space for our hotel guests but we have actually removed the plants that we once had in that area. Live plants were almost impossible to keep alive due to the lighting and the artificial plants...
