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...

The lobby and rooms are modern, the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms look new. I had a room in the back and it was very quiet. There was no tub in my bathroom, but the shower was really good. Coffee at breakfast was good...very important to me.

I had to do business in the area and found most of the hotels were sold out so I booked the Best Western Plus. The website showed photos that made the place look very nice. The rates were very over priced, about more than double of what a similar hotel would charge. The room was not very clean and the...

The room was very clean and the food was good. The hotel staff were pleasant and willing to assist the guests. We did not use the pool, but it also was clean. My room was near the games room but I never heard noise.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in September as we further explored the beautiful Hudson Valley area. The location was fine for us, right next to a great little Italian restaurant with huge portions that we highly recommend. The rates were a little high at the hotel. However, the breakfast they provide was very nice and had many...
