Situated on sprawling hilltop acres overlooking the Hudson River, the main tower of Castle Hotel & Spa forms the highest point in Westchester County. Castle Hotel & Spa is a medieval-style structure that was meticulously transformed into a luxury hotel, offering guests royal-quality service, luxurious guestrooms, and the award-winning Equus restaurant which features Auberge-style, natural French-inspired cuisine. The luxurious new THANN™ Sanctuary Spa is an oasis of peace and tranquility where a holistic treatment approach aims to rediscover inner physical and mental wellness. Only 25 miles north of Manhattan, Castle Hotel & Spa opened as a luxury hotel in 1997; 16 years after being designated a historic landmark.

special dinner

A wonderful spot for a special occasion. The dinner, tasting menu, served excellently prepared examples of many local products. The service was attentive and pleasant. The Oak Room provided a perfect oasis for our anniversary dinner.

For special occasions, you can't beat this beautiful, albeit extremely pricey restaurant in The Castle at Tarrytown. Just about every table was celebrating some sort of occasion (birthday, anniversary)! The food was beautifully presented, although a few of the dishes seemed ill-conceived. The service was terrific, and they have a great (also pricey) wine list. The dark wood, with the... More
