We spent a couple of nights at Stewart House over a recent long weekend, lured by the pictures on their very very nice website and some positive online reviews. And there's a lot to like - it's a pretty old house in many ways lovingly restored. Our room had a great view of the river through nice big windows. But...

Lovely hotel, very relaxing after hectic time in New York. Love the Hudson River. Hotel very clean with lovely decor. Fun bar. Athens is an interesting village. Must go back in the Summer, still very cold in March, lots of lying snow still, but did not detract from our enjoyment.

Went to the Stewart House for Saint Patrick's Day. The staff was very friendly and took good care of us on a very crowded night. My fiance loved the corn beef but not the cabbage. I enjoyed my wings but didn't care for the shrimp cocktail, it had a strange texture to it. But overall we had a great time

The room was beautiful, the staff was friendly. The bar was a lot of fun and the breakfast bar was the perfect way to end our quick getaway. It would be a wonderful place for a wedding or party. Athens is a beautiful town. We come all year round. The Catskills are a great destination.

We went on a Friday night to listen to a blues band. The place was packed. It's a little tight to listen music in the bar area. The dinning area was vacant at the time so perhaps people coukd be allowed to sit put there? They may not have been able to see the band but they coukd hear it....

The guest rooms are directly above a bar. For some reason, there are reviews for the Stewart House that are written without mentioning that the guest rooms are directly above a bar. The reviews do mention that the rooms are nice, the staff is friendly, and the town is quaint, but out of over 80 reviews only a few of...

We loved staying at the Stewart House for a portion of our anniversary trip. I will say that if you enjoy being waited on and pampered, you may want to stay on the other side of the river, as the Stewart House gives you privacy and freedom to wander about. Unfortunately the bar/restaurant was not open the days we visited....

Fantastic spot beside the river. But one problem. The owner has not employed enough kitchen staff to expedite the kitchen's ability to service the dining area in the Summer. We waited nearly an hour for our food after ordering at a non-busy lunch time in September. We had to make a train back to the city and had to hail...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Stewart House at THE ATHENS HOTEL, one of the grandest hotel/restaurants in the Hudson River Valley, is located in the river town of Athens, NY. (Directly across from Hudson, New York.) Carrying on a legacy that began in the 1883 when it first opened its doors, the Athens Hotel acts as the perfect companion to the Shakespeare on the Hudson Estates (located 2 miles from the hotel), featuring the 11-room "River House", and the 11-room "River Lodge"; located on 90 acres of Hudson River river-front. The hotel itself is able to accommodate up to 18 guests. This architectural treasure has had a complete renovation after being damaged by floodwaters during Tropical Storm Irene during the summer of 2011. Owen Lipstein, the owner of the Stewart House at THE ATHENS HOTEL, has presided over this nuanced, imaginative and critically acclaimed restoration, literally from the inside out. The nine spacious and fully complete guest rooms pay appropriate respect to the Stewart House's historically important past. At the same time, it now features state of the art , heating, cooling and electric. The bathrooms are remarkable, featuring for example, marble tile showers, custom baths and heated towel warmers. These rooms have been carefully been styled for the ultimate getaway boasting large and airy suites, perfect for snuggling up and enjoying the view of the Hudson River. With it respect to its historic sense of place, we can now embrace the glorious present, with a wondrous future.... Re-opened just recently, both the restaurant and hotel have garnered nothing short of rave reviews. As one recent guest put it, "Simply stated, this is the most beautiful place on the Hudson. Stay here, eat here, indulge in a drink at the River Garden, and you will never want to leave." The restaurant has also JUST OPENED. (We have been careful about announcing it.) We can now say this with quiet, but assured confidence: customers from near and far, have left extremely satisfied, happy, and full of praise for our chef and our staff. Each room at THE ATHENS HOTEL is as unique as the hotel's history: some rooms are named after movie productions that have used the hotel as a backdrop, some are named after the surrounding landscape, and still others are named after notable characters from Shakespeare's plays. Each room features spectacular views of the Hudson, luxurious queen-size beds, in-room mini fridges, large flatscreen TVs and brand new, state-of-the-art bath amenities. ... more   less
