“What? Closed?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We stopped by specifically to lunch here because of the views & reviews. It was closed. They closed it because there obviously wasn't enough staff because of weddings & reunions in the hotel. We double checked times & everything - there was no excuse. Time to find a new Food & Beverage Manager I'd say.

“Staff needs training”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

The inability of the staff to take an order correctly and demonstrate the courtesy expected in a luxury hotel detracted from the experience. Good view, but that's about all that commends the establishment

“One great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

What would a trip to West Point be without checking out the Thayer hotel? And thereby what would a visit to the Thayer hotel be without taking the time to visit the Zulu lounge. We enjoyed a quick beverage and enjoyed the view from the rooftop lounge as well!!

“Great night spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

The Zuli Rooftop Lounge sits above the majestic Hudson River on the 2nd floor of The Thayer Hotel. Perfect for a quick drink, visit with friends, dancing etc. Noise level is perfect for both chatting and listening to music. Service was excellent. Highly recommend!

“Not my kind of place ...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Just doesn't seem to fit the 'Thayer' theme. But, to each their own I guess. It seems to be a good idea, but the 2 nights we were there it was empty. And, that was a 'homecoming' weekend. It's more fitting for a 21-29 crowd that wants loud music and crazy drinks. Just doesn't fit - IMHO.
