About the Hilton Westchester
Situated about 45 minutes north of Manhattan in Westchester County and about ten minutes from the Westchester County Airport, the 445-room Hilton Westchester (formerly known as Hilton Rye Town) is a modern and luxurious hotel with a décor and ambiance that emulates the casual elegance of a Westchester country club. Think: landscaped grounds, sophisticated color schemes, modern amenities and all the recreational facilities – tennis courts, basketball courts, Olympic-size indoor pool, saunas, hiking trails and more – you’d expect at an upscale country club.
With its lush setting on 37 acres of landscaped woodlands, the Hilton Westchester feels far removed from the noise and hustle of city life. However, its convenient location in the town of Rye Brook – tucked between White Plains and Greenwich, Connecticut – makes it a convenient base for business travelers visiting the towns of White Plains, New Rochelle and Harrison, and the nearby offices of PepsiCo, IBM, Morgan Stanley and MasterCard.
Each of the hotel’s 445 rooms took on a more modern look in 2012, thanks to a $35 millionrenovation that added a rich color scheme and furnishings. In-room features include Hilton Serenity beds complete with cozy down-filled comforters and pillows, flat-screen TVs, a sitting chair and ottoman, a large desk and ergonomic chair, a coffee maker and MP3 player. Junior suites are available in one or two bedrooms with pull-out sofas and an additional full bath. Many rooms offer views of the surrounding gardens.
For breakfast, the new Harth Restaurant offers pastries, small plates and hot items right off the griddle, like French toast, scrambled eggs or frittatas. Come back for lunch or dinner and sample a pizza fresh from the wood-fired oven or one of Harth’s signature entrees, like black bass, mushroom pappardelle or a thick-cut steak.
Calorie counters need not panic: there’s a Precor health club, an indoor and outdoor pool, a jogging and walking track, a basketball court and three year-round tennis courts to help you work it all off. If you want a little more fresh air, you’re also about six miles from the rugged terrain and trails of the 236-acre Silver Lake Preserve.
While the Hilton Westchester is an easy train or car ride to Manhattan, it is best suited to travelers who want to escape the noise of the city and enjoy space, luxury and excellent amenities. Business travelers will appreciate the hotel’s luxurious amenities and proximity to area businesses and airports.
