There is a lot of good things to say about this amazing property. One of the most exquisite I have ever been to. I am going to skip all the good things (since they are all mentioned in previous comments) and just point out a couple of things. Room service closes at a certain time and the in room dining... More

Spent 3 nights here over President's Day weekend. A very easy drive from NYC. Glenmere was just what we were looking for - a relaxing weekend, by the fire, outside of the city, with good food and wine. Mansion and grounds - beautiful, really feels like a home with little touches throughout. They very kindly upgraded us to Room 8... More

This was the most exquisite property I have ever stayed at in the US. It felt like we were invited to someone's luxurious house in Tuscany. The mansion is absolutely gorgeous. The service is top notch and the ambiance very intimate. We were happily surprised to be upgraded when we checked in because it was my friend's birthday. That was... More

It is a very easy weekend trip from NYC. We spent the one afternoon walking through the quaint local towns and the other at the spa. It was a relaxing getaway. The staff at the hotel and spa were incredibly friendly and attentive. The rooms were amazing - we had a fireplace and heated floors in the bathroom, together with... More

This is not so much a resort for the indulged and privileged as it is a chance to feel what it is like to be the guest in a very rich, and tasteful,person's home. While the dimensions are on the grand scale, there pervades a sense of intimacy and illusion that every staff member is obsessed with only your comfort.... More

What a fabulous gem of a hotel! We felt as if we'd gone to a rich friend's house who left us their staff for our visit. Subtle touches throughout the mansion give you that "right at home" feeling. We loved starting the day with a coffee from the Nespresso machine just outside our room, playing backgammon in the library with... More

We thought the facilities were very nice and the dining experience was good. And for a quick getaway from NYC, it is very convenient. That said, we didn't find many things to do and the property seems really expensive for what it is - we think a property like Ocean House in RI (farther away) offers better value. Nothing wrong...

I wanted to love this place-I read the reviews of others; I am an (extreme) fan of Relais & Chateaux; I love upstate NY, and renovated Guilded Age Mansions "float my boat"-but sadly Glenmere fell short. Dinner our first night was in the casual restaurant, and it was the better of the two nights. Service is really not good--dinner was... More

I loved the hotel when we visited during the summer but is a completely different but wonderful experience in the fall. I was really impressed that two issues I noted in my previous review were rectified. That is service. It is also a true testament to how hard the staff works to ensure the experience is blissful which it was.... More
