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.

Wonderful New Year's Eve

Equus at the Castle was a perfect place to celebrate New Yea's Eve. There was tasting menu which was fantastic. We were able to spend the entire evening in an elegant, relaxed environment with live music and dancing. The setting is gorgeous and the food was great. The entire evening was perfect.

We recently had a family event and celebrated at the Equus Restaurant at the Castle in Tarrytown. They have a price fixed lunch that was really quite lovely. The atmosphere and room are a real treat it was still decorated for Christmas and was like going back in time. The food is very good and the price fixe is affordable.... More

New Years Day brunch knocked one of my favorite places from the top spot locally down a few. The food was average, service was below par for such a great location, ambiance and setting. However the wait staff must have been off their game that day. Menu was limited, food was average. Once served our main course the wait staff... More

We were there this past Sunday, for a quiet brunch. We live 50 miles away and its a traffic choked drive on a Sunday from Long Island to Tarrytown, so, when we come here, our expectations from past brunches are high. We were not disappointed.
