Just about every journey within New York by taxi cab or subway takes at least half an hour. Situated only 30 minutes from New York City is a five star luxury hotel, The Ritz-Carlton, Westchester, which, incidentally is among the top-50 wealthiest counties in the United States.
A stay at this establishment offers you easy access to the metropolis to the South or alternatively turn North into the gentrified Hudson Valley or point yourself North-Westwards to the hipster communities rehabilitating the Catskill Mountains.
Some 146 guest rooms include 38 suites of three different kinds. Dining includes an award-winning BLT Steak on property. The BLT menu is arranged by category, and enhanced with corresponding savory sauces which aim to guide diners to steakhouse bliss.
Top quality ingredients include Certified Black Angus and USDA Prime steaks in addition to which BLT Steak also offers American Kobe Beef, Lamb, Chicken, Fish and an extensive Raw Bar. Generous side dishes are served in Staub cast iron cocottes and “must have” desserts vary seasonally for an experience comparable to the best of Manhattan, with the benefit of your hotel room upstairs. BLT’s award winning wine list features both New and Old World wines and a “short list” accompanies it, showcasing a smaller, bistrostyle selection for more casual selection.
A 10,000 square foot spa complex, the largest currently in Westchester county offers an amazing array of treatments in state-of-the-art facilities. Some eleven treatment rooms including a couple’s suite, and healing hydrotherapy facilities highlighted by a Vichy rain room and an opulent Japanese soaking tub.
The expansive complex also features a rooftop swimming pool with skyline views of the town and outwards towards Manhattan.
