I have been avoiding writing this review but unfortunately I'm left with no choice. My husband and I stayed at this hotel in August 2014 for a babymoon, and we actually had a lovely experience. The problem was that when we checked into our room, it had not been properly cleaned--there were hairs in the bathtub and a dirty towel... More

My husband and I were looking for a last minute get away, and we were so lucky to find this unique hotel nestled over the Hudson River. The room was very clean and comfortable, and we had an amazing view of the sunset over the mountains. Yes, there is a train track, but the trains were not frequent and not... More

Given the price, $300 plus, I had high expectations. Here is what I found: Rooms that overlook a train station, poorly stocked bar, no restaurant, and nice but nothing special rooms. Definitely avoid.

The hotel has been refurbished to a very high degree and is very comfortable and relaxing. The views over the Hudson are fantastic, apart from the large iron railway bridge, but even that adds to the atmosphere. As mentioned in the hotel prospectus, the trains do go by at regular intervals but this did not bother us and, in fact,... More

The Rhinecliff Inn was a warm and welcoming place to stay. The rooms are spacious and immaculate. Each balcony had a nice view of the Hudson. There is a train that runs by during the night, so the room had earplugs. Thankfully I did not find this disturbing. Everyone was very kind and helpful and provided a comfy cot for... More

The hotel and rooms are nicely updated in a rustic style. The view from our balcony was very nice overlooking the Hudson. There is a nice casual bar/restaurant on the ground level where they served good food. The staff we interacted with were all very friendly and helpful so from the perspective of what the proprietors of the hotel can... More

The hotel has a great amount of charm if you love historic buildings. They really did a wonderful job restoring and updating the place. Beautifully done. The location is as they say...out of the way. We ate at the Chinese restaurant across the street and it was good. The included breakfast was really good and Lynn the server was really... More

We arrived in the rain and, since it was our first visit, didn't know what to expect. While the sun never came out, the inn and our large and welcoming room made the day and night delightful. Yes it was costly and yes, the train did pass by on the hour, but it was worth the expense to be in... More

The Rhinecliff is a lovely inn. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The location is exceptional. Bring a book and sit on the patio and soak in the beautiful surroundings. The rooms have modern comfort but retain the historic charm.

Comfortable beds, excellent large rain showers nice products too. Carla, the manager was so friendly & helpful. Can't review the restaurant as we were a little before season and it wasn't open....

Nini thank you for sharing your feelings with the world! I remember your reservation coming in and am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes of course, we're a railway hotel which we strive very hard to make all our guests aware of in advance, the way the line was constructed by the great moguls of the 1800s, if you... More
