This may have been a 'hotel' 50 years ago, but it is now a retirement community. I believe they are renting out empty rooms as "hotel" rooms to supplement business. 24 hour cancellation policy is their "bait and switch insurance policy". Getting off of the elevator, was almost run over by someone in a wheelchair coming from the dining hall... More

We stayed in a deluxe studio king about 5 times in 2013.The location of the hotel is great, as it is close to restaurants, stores, parking and public transportation to NYC. The room was large, very clean, with big windows providing a light open feeling.The room had a comfortable bed with nice, functional furniture, and a kitchenette that included a... More

This place is a dump, for $200 for the night, i don't think they have upgraded since 1980. It was warm out, but because it was winter, the central heat was on, and you can't control it. Front desk says just open the window if they work. No screen. Had to listen to a huge party out side, so no... More

We got lost during a severe storm and wound up in White Plains. We were referred to this hotel by another hotel that was full. It's a well kept secret on a side street without prominent signage. When I declined their basic room I was offered a premium room which was large and attractive, with a complete set up for... More

I would stay away from this hotel. I'll start off with two advantages: location is good and price is fair for a location inside a city. for long term stay, there is value with the price. However, as a business traveler, you will be disappointed with this hotel. The service is poor. I stayed there this week and ran into... More

Decided last minute to stay in White Plains so I could be close to where I was taking a big exam. No other hotels were available as a result of the hurricane. What a horrible place! Upon check in they didn't even tell me about breakfast and upon check out the front desk was closed. I had to walk across... More

We were victims of Hurricane Sandy. We paid for 5 days. On the 3rd day, although we locked our door & put do not disturb sign on the door, we returned from the playground at about 3:30 to find our room burglarized: there we were without a home & about $800 worth of items was stolen! There security was greatly... More

Because of Hurricane Sandy, we had no electricity, heat or hot water in our house. All of the hotels in the White Plains area were sold out, and Esplanade was the only one available. I should have known that there is a reason why no-one wants to stay here. With no other options, I booked Esplanade. After reading other reviews,... More

I was on a business trip with two other people. We were booked here due to a shortage of places to stay in the area. We had to check in at the front desk for the Sr Living Apts (which are attached). The poor girl working there had to do EVERYTHING by herself. She was great! There was no Internet... More

Excellent location and service, we stayed 2.5 months and all the staff/management made us felt like home, they provided us with EVERYTHING we need since we were staying with our newly born baby. We really enjoyed our stay in The Esplanade.
