Overlooking the Hudson River on acres of well-kept gardens and grounds, this castle turned hotel is over 100 years old. The luxurious guestrooms, wood burning fireplaces and excellent service make the Castle a favorite among celebrities and dignitaries and the perfect place for a romantic getaway.
Why go to Manhattan to see the Broadway stars when the stars come here? The dinner and Broadway music series Cabaret at the Castle ($100) begins with a four-course meal at the Castle on the Hudson’s acclaimed French restaurant, Equus, followed by a Cabaret seating at small cocktail tables in the ballroom where guest cast members of Broadway acclaim perform. There’s also a $55 option (Viennese dessert table, coffee, and the performance) but either way, that’s what we call fine dining and fine listening.
A century old castle. A four poster bed dressed with goose down comforters and Frette linens. Working wood fireplaces. Views of the Hudson River extending all the way to Manhattan. What could be more romantic than that? Castle on the Hudson offers the chance to sneak off for an amorous weekend away without the hassles of traveling outside the county. Go for the romantic package, and add to those luxuries a couple's massage in your suite, chocolate dipped strawberries, chilled Champagne, and a bed covered in silk rose petals. With all of the in room amenities, you might not ever want to leave your suite, but we suggest that you year yourself away just long enough to take advantage of Equus's renowned prix fixe dinner, the fastest way to the heart is through the stomach, after all.
