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.

We reserved three rooms on the top floor overlooking the lovely Hudson. Our suite had a very large, comfortable deck, perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine. 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

The website for The Rhinecliff doesn't do it justice! Everything about our room was top drawer from the balcony to the great bed to the creaking wood floors. The Hudson River ambiance was everywhere. There were many disclaimers about the proximity to the train tracks BUT that's what the hotel was all about. We were there in the middle of... More

Feels like you are right in the Hudson River. Enjoyed a fancy room, extra large with spa tub and a huge shower. The extra jets were a bit annoying and it is impossible to shower and come out with dry hair. You must be prepared for the train which is right in front. It did not disturb my sleep, but... More

Thank you for contributing to the wonderful melting pot that is Tripadvisor! We are certainly so close to the Hudson that you may well feel you are almost in it, we do take that as a compliment! Yes indeed, we are a historic hotel so the old floor boards do creak and crack as our fellow guests traverse, we could... More

My partner and I experienced some of the best service around from start to finish. The food was delicious and fresh! We will definitely be visiting in the future because of the warm welcome from all staff and the beautiful atmosphere this hotel has. The only downside is that you are next door to the train tracks, but it didn't... More

We stayed here because it was walking distance from the train station and an interim stop after two days in NYC. We thought it would be a treat judging from the reviews. The setting overlooking the Hudson is scenic. The rooms are charmingly rustic and clean, the bed was comfortable and the toiletries are upscale. But this hotel has nothing... More

We have been staying at The Rhinecliff a since 2010...the year we got married there! The rooms are beautiful (we've stayed in three different ones), decorated simply, with modern, high-end details that are more than appreciated.
