The Ritz-Carlton, Westchester

A stylish gateway to the Hudson Valley
VERIFIED LUXURY
Whether it’s to avoid the 24-hour honking of New York or to get closer to nature with nearby bike trails and forest preserves, you’ll find plenty of reasons to extend a stay at this elegant Westchester hotel.

Guest rooms are sizeable and contemporary with neutral tones and modern amenities, including flat-screen TVs and wireless Internet. If you can, opt for a room on the club level, which awards you a personal concierge, decadent treats throughout the day and access to a complimentary business center.

No need to go into the city for dinner; just book a table at BLT Steak, where famed chef Laurent Tourondel whips up tasty French bistro fare in a chic, urbane setting.

Our Inspector's Highlights
  • At 10,000 square feet, the Westchester hotel offers an expansive, yet peaceful spa retreat featuring an array of treatments to heal, relax and revive, including seasonal offerings and signature therapies.
  • The property’s impressive art collection, curated by interior designer Frank Nicholson, includes works by Michael Mazur, Nelson Da Costa and Carol Bechtel on display in the reception area and Lobby Lounge as well as other public spaces and in guest rooms.
  • The 10th-floor atrium pool, connected by a staircase to the hotel spa, is a bright and airy space with views of downtown White Plains and the hills surrounding the Hudson Valley — vistas shared by those working out in the LifeFitness-equipped gym, open 24/7.
  • The multifunctional Lobby Lounge, flooded with natural light by day and warmed by a large, glass-enclosed fireplace by night, serves as a dining area, gathering space, cocktail lounge and work area for hotel guests.
  • The Westchester hotel is home to an outpost of the renowned BLT Steak. Order a prime cut of premium beef (think Black Angus and Kobe) or choose from a selection of chicken, fish or raw bar offerings accompanied by a glass of vino from the restaurant’s fantastic wine list.

Things to Know

  • Local apple cider is served daily in The Lobby Lounge at 5 p.m., a nod to the hotel’s location on the edge of the Hudson Valley’s apple-growing region.
  • Request an east-facing room to enjoy views of the lush foliage (particularly stunning in the fall) rather than the sprawl of downtown White Plains.
  • Traveling to or from Manhattan is a breeze — the White Plains Metro-North Railroad station is a quick drive or a 10-minute walk from the property. Westchester County White Plains Airport is also just 15 minutes away by car.
  • Local transportation options include ride sharing with Uber and Lyft.

The Rooms

  • There are no “standard” rooms here: even the base Deluxe Rooms start out with at least 515 square feet of living space and include such niceties as spacious work desks and custom cabinets that provide an abundance of storage.
  • All guest rooms have plush feather-stuffed mattresses, duvets and pillows. Executive Suites have living rooms with full-size sleeper sofas, while the one-bedroom suites add an extra powder room.
  • Rooms are equipped with 50-inch flat-panel LED TVs and an Enseo entertainment system.
  • Luxurious marble bathrooms feature rain showers, jetted soaking tubs, terry robes and Asprey bath amenities.

Nearby Attractions

  • White Plains attractions within strolling distance of the hotel include a Wednesday farmers market, the upscale Westchester Mall and the performance spaces of ArtsWestchester, located in a historic former bank building.
  • The Perkins Memorial Tower at Bear Mountain State Park offers spectacular views of the Hudson Valley. Other activities at the 5,200-acre park include fishing, boating, swimming and cross-country skiing in winter.
  • Sleepy Hollow, the nearby Hudson River town that’s the setting for Washington Irving’s famous ghost story, is also home to Kykuit, the Westchester mansion of the Rockefeller family.
