I wandered through the maze that is Macy's . In the 3 hours I was there I must have asked six times for directions! Very frustrating. I bought a pr of slacks and a long sleeved Calvin Klein top, both in what color ? Purple, but different shades. no, I won't wear them together. The total for these two was $43 the docket states that I saved $159. ...
As the snow had cleared and the sun was out we hopped onto the Staten Island ferry so we could get a good look at the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge. We were surprised and thought it a little unnecessary that the NY Coast Guard was armed and escorting us for the entire 30 minute journey. We had very kindly been looked after by a lovely guy on the metro who helped us get the right station, made sure we went the right way to the ferry, ...

Walking back to the car, I passed a man in front of a barber shop sign he looked at me like I needed a haircut, so I asked “can you cut my hair?”. He said sure. The Barbershop was upstairs in an office building and most of the tenants were strangely hair salons.
Anyway my barber was named ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Westchester Marriott Tarrytown
Very average and can't stand smell of chlorine
Have stayed in plenty of hotels for business and this was not one of the better ones. The interior is dark and dingy and dated. Room is fairly small and awkward wedge shape. Room face inwards. Has its own balcony but due to shape of building is not at all private (we stayed in an interior facing room).
My biggest complaint - don't stay in an interior facing room unless you can stand the smell of chlorine - it was just overwhelming.
The staff were friendly and efficient. Theres plenty of praking at no charge - you'll need a car as its not near anything.
I checked out of this hotel only four hours after checking in. It was that miserable.
We just returned from a weekend at the Westchester Marriott in Tarrytown, NY. We go there once a year for my husband's dental convention. He attends all the convention floor exhibits and classes and the children and i soak in the pool and hang around the hotel. We have been going there for about 15 years for this convention and have seen some improvements this year in the hotel restaurant area. The room we had on the 7th floor was clean and comfortable, with everything in working order. My only comment was we could have used a few extra towels because we were 4 people taking showers and one towel each is just not enough. If i would have called down, i am sure they would have brought up afew more, but my kids had to get to bed. The pool area is the same. Its maintained very nicely, pool is crystal clear. hot tub was HOT, this area could be spruced up a bit but its still a nice area. the lobby area is still the same, clean,well kept etc. everyone was accommodating to us and staff always smiled and said hi. there used to be a restaurant called ALLIES which was okay. Now they opened up that area so you feel you are eating al fresco, with HUGE flower pots to partially block the view of the people passing in the hall. We had breakfast buffet there and it was good. Adults $14.95 and Kids $4.95. Dinner prices were steep and everything was ala carte There is also Ruth Chris steak house, but with young children, thats not a good choice to eat. We usually go to TGI Fridays 2 minutes up the road and thats always delicious. This hotel is nice for a weekend away. Close to NYC, the pool can really revive you and the kids! It would be nice to take the family for the weekend to swim and relax. Room prices weren't too bad. We paid $124.00 per night for the 4 of us with 2 double beds and a decent room. Its worth the thought, take a ride there and enjoy your stay!
I stayed here every weekend in July, as I had a relative in the hospital in nearby White Plains. It was very comfortable and nice, with pleasant, friendly service. The beds were unbelievably comfy which was a nice perk. They had free internet and free coffee available in the lobby, and occassionally, free cookies there too. The layout of the hotel was strange, and maze-like, with the elevator way in the back of the hotel. Easily accessible to White Plains, Sleepy Hollow, Scarsdale, and I-87 and the Tappan Zee Bridge. No complaints, and they made my necessary stay very pleasant.
I stayed here recently because it was close to where I needed to be for business and because they have a Ruth's Chris steakhouse in the hotel. The staff was polite when I checked in and had just put out a plate of warm cookies, so the lobby smelled great! My room was small but manageable for one person and it was clean.
Nice Weekend Trip
I took my girlfriends to this hotel for a weekend getaway. We had a very nice stay.
We particularly enjoyed the Ruth Chris Restaurant being located in the hotel, and the late night room service.
They do offer spa treatments, and the indoor pool is perfect for the winter swimmer like myself.
It was an older hotel, however, the rooms were clean, amenities were adequate, just don't let the "Starbucks" sign fool you, they brew starbicks coffee in about 3 pots, and sell it by the cup in the gift store located in the hotel, it is not a full service Starbucks like I am used to.
After I got over the coffee...the trip was good. I would definitely visit again.
I recently stayed at the Westchester Marriott for two nights while attending a conference. The lobby and public areas looked like they were recently renovated and overall, the hotel looked fresh and clean. The room was beautifully decorated, but on the "tight" side, and the bathroom was especially small. The bed was comfortable and featured upscale fabrics and sheeting. It was generally clean, but was too dusty---moreso than the dozen or so hotels I've stayed at in the last year. The room was loaded with amenities. At least I had a room at the front of the hotel with a view of the parking lot and surrounding office buildings. Those facing the back of the hotel look out at roofs, vents, sound barriers and the lanes of I-287 approaching the Tappan Zee Bridge.
Very pleasant stay
We stayed at the Westchester Marriott in July 2004 for 2 nights. The room was clean and the hotel didn't look rundown at all. I agree with other reviews regarding the views (ours was of the parking lot). The hotel was booked when we were there so it was "busy" but the staff was very friendly and room service was quick. I would definitely stay there again. Location is great to get just about anywhere!
this hotel is old and tired looking. no views except generators, parking lot or the bldg next door. poolside view rooms are nicer but costlier and noisier .no restaurants nearby, cleanliness is spotty, rooms are small with one window. good thing about it is room service is reasonable with none of those exhorbitant tacked-on fees. hilton tarrytown is just as tired looking but at least have more facilities. book elsewhere.
I wanted to take a mini vacation and chose the Westchester Marriott because it was not too far. I got a pretty decent room, but full of dust-did they know we were coming? It was Valentine's weekend and it was LOADED with children. The pool area was nice as was the hot tub, but again kids everywhere and you couldn't even step foot in the pool.
It would of been nice to know that it was packed with kids, I would of brought my nieces/nephews.
For dinner it would of been nice to it at Chris Ruth's steakhouse, but it was booked, obviously way in advance..again no one told us to make a reservation. We ate at the Marriott's other casual restaurant that was ok, but nothing spectacular. The disco was nice but empty.
I would go again if they cleaned their rooms!
