Historical Traveler Reviews Belvedere Mansion Staatsburg
Not adequate for price
If there was an option for zero stars this would be the place. The only way that good reviews can be given on this site is if the owners themselves placed them here. Literally the hotel is beautiful from far away but the rooms are musty and old. Stay at the Beekman Arms down the road which had a much better atmosphere and service.
My husband and I stayed here the week-end before Thanksgiving. When we arrived, we were thrilled with the location. The mansion sits atop a hill overlooking the Hudson River and mountains. We immediately felt relaxed as we entered the hotel. The furnishings are beautiful - you feel like you are in Beauty and the Beast and the furniture is going to start dancing. The rooms are at the top of a wonderful staircase and each one is decorated differently. In the evening, you can eat dinner downstairs and you are served a meal with nothing short of white glove service. In the morning you are served breakfast and that is included with your stay. The staff was quite attentive to us even though there were affairs going on the entire week-end and I did not feel ignored or overlooked. Do not pay attention to the negative reviews that precede mine. This is a very lovely spot to have a romantic getaway and we will return in the future.
I'm not sure they care!
Aside from Jill at the front desk, I felt as if we were more an inconvience than a welcomed guest. The furniture in our room smelled moldy and damp, the king bed was two twins pushed together, the bathroom was the size of a small closet, the breakfasts offered limited choices and were at best OK. I think that as there were only a few people staying at the time the level of care was very limited. During our stay they had a large corporate party. This was their main concern. We went to dinner in Rhinebeck and when we returned there was no place to park. I thought we were staying at their facility, paying for the room and No place to park? There is more, but I hope you get the point.
I would not recommend this facility. We loved the area and plan to return, but we will stay elsewhere.
Exceptional Food - Deceptive Management
While this facility has tremendous potential and could be an exceptional site for any elaborate event, or an intimate get away weekend, it will probalby not ever reach that potential due to the owner and his wife.
Frankly, the best thing the Belvedere Mansion has going for it is the Chef and his staff. The food is outstanding, 5 star caliber for sure.
The owner is a hot-head, does not keep his word and is, in the words of our guests "shady"....
The owner's wife is also less than accomodating and very condescending.
Proceed with caution and get it in writing!
Best New Years Eve Ever
Just a dream.... You have to see it in order to believe it. A perfect make-up of the 'Gilded Age'.The Manison, the Location, the Restaurant.
Believe it or not, there are even no Tv's or phones in the rooms (but in the lounge). Perfect hospitality. Nothing is bothering you.
Breakfast served by the maids...simply cool.And than the food....
Oysters with cucumber granite, mable of ox-tongue and foie gras...
We'll be there again next year to celebrate New Years Eve with our friends. We had an unforgettable Start into 2004. Thanks to our friends C & P and the Belvedere.
My husband and I needed to "get away from it all". After asking around, we were recommended to go the the Belvedere Mansion. We made reservations for a weekend in June 2003 and were more than pleasantly surprised. Everything about the Belvedere met our expectations and more. Firstly, the accomadations were great. Our room was spotless, the best sleep I have ever had. The linen, the bed, the bathroom, everything was great. Anythig and everything we asked for, was at out fingertips. Next, the resaurant was fabulous. The food was prepared with great pride, and served magnificently. The staff was warm and caring. I can't say enough good things about this establishment. TRY IT, you'LL love it.
Fabulous weekend affair
We recently had our daughter's wedding at the Belvedere Mansion. We booked rooms for the weekend for 40 of our guests. Everyone raved about the beauty of the grounds and the accommodations. The food was delicious the service excellent and the staff extremely courteous. We are still receiving cudos from the grooms family for arranging such a unique and luxurious wedding celebration weekend. Now that we are empty nesters we just can't wait to spend a romantic weekend at the Belvedere Mansion.
I had a great time, the accomodations were wonderful, the staff was great, and the food was delicious. I would definately go back!!
Bad attitude x ten
accommodations-i do not believe our room would have passed local codes ! voiced complaint to deaf ears! NEVER AGAIN!
Upon finding that our rooms in the carriage house were not to our liking (musty, beat-up bathroom/broken floor tile, cheap aluminum shower enclosure) and not worth the $125 price for a night, we asked for a refund. This was about 10 minutes after checking in. The inkeeper belligerently treated us to a verbal assault using the "F" word about six different ways and ending by saying that he "wasn't in business to kiss your A**" He came close to threatening, saying "if she (the front desk person) wasn't here..." and trailing off his sentence ominously. (Did he mean to imply physical violence?). He ultimately refunded our money (for our ten-minute GLANCE at the room) but it almost wasn't worth the headache!!!!
Though the mansion-proper may be beautiful, I'd be wary about this place. The innkeeper has a hot temper -- or at least a Jekyll & Hyde personality (he was pleasant to other guest checking in at the same time). There must be better places in the area to stay!

... Derek, you both made my NYC experience incredibly awesome! As I write this I'm sitting in Grand Central waiting on my train back to the trail. I'm trying to get my mind right and prepared for life on the trail. I'm excited to start hiking again, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't going to miss this place. With that said, there is no where I'd rather be than on the AT experiencing what the trail had to offer. 704 miles left until Mt. Katahdin in ...
... Both of our GPS's took us on slightly different routes. Our goal was to avoid driving through the cities so we purposely headed towards a place called Fish Kill, New York. Exit 11 managed to navigate us into a residential area with many dead ends and verrrrrrrry narrow streets. Clarence kept saying "we're screwed". I kept telling him to listen to the GPS. He kept saying that is what has gotten us into this mess in the first place. Long story short, the GPS finally got us out ...
... it but my door won't open cause the coach is too wide. Jim goes through pulls over and I run back to get it. By this time there is no ticket!! To hell with it. Finally get to our exit, tell them we don't have the ticket so we have to pay the highest price which is 28.45. In the meantime Clarence and Fay have taken the wrong exit and are being re routed a different way, but that ok cause we both end up at the same place right?? We have ...
- Athens...The Greeks...The Philosopher's...The Acropolis!!!!
We got up early, had breakfast and met our tour guide in the hotel lobby...George is his name, works for Niko and we got a four hour tour of Athens...Great way to go!
George gave us a quick lowdown of the history of Greece, Athens and then the Acropolis. He had books, pictures and his tablet to fill in the holes and then he shoved us out the door of the tour ...
Hi EveryoneWe left Santorini this morning, we had to, the weather turned overcast! You can't be there when the weather is not shiny...it just won't do!
We took a taxi to the airport and flew Aegean Air back to Athens...Mark Aegean Airlines on your list off rip-offs. They charged us $30 per bag....no free bag. Then they told us we could go on line and buy discounted bag check...only we couldn't because we booked through Star ...
