I had dinner at the Ritz Carlton, White Plains. Only living an hour away, I didn't think I'd spend the night. When I left at 10 it was snowing hard, visibility was bad and roads covered. I didn't want to go back to the Ritz Carlton and spend $350 a night so I drove slowly out of White Plains. I was getting lost and although I could put Highway 287 in my navigation, I was afraid to go over the Tapan Zee bridge. So, I searched for any brand-name hotel and the Hampton Inn was the first I found.
There was no available spots in the first tier lot so I had to go up a hill to a back lot. I hoped first there would be vacancy, and second that the snow would be plowed in the morning because I worried about the hill going down.
I was greeted warmly in the lobby by a lovely young woman, Zena who told me they did indeed have vacancy and she worked to find me the best rate. She asked if I was a Hilton Hhonors member, and I recalled signing up someplace and was glad since that was a better rate. I paid $115 and although it wasn't cheap, it was better than the Ritz Carlton and I wasn't going back out. I made a hot tea in the lobby, went up to my clean (small) room, took a warm bath, then watched TV comfy-cozy.
The storm was worse in the morning, but the hotel was well-staffed. The complimentary breakfast was nice especially the mini omelettes and fresh fruit. There was a very nice attendant who passed out mints and moist towelettes. I'm sorry I didn't get her name for this review.
I waited as long as possible to check out and the roads sanded. A gentleman named Sean helped me clear my car and made sure to alert the plow to re-do the parking lot because I was worried about all the declines. His concern for me and the other guests was exceptional.
