I’m wonderful room that feels both modern and period (as in 1700’s). Spacious with a nice gas fireplace quiet and just all-around lovely. The people are wonderful and the food is great. The town of Rhinebeck is delightful and you can journey off the Hudson or Woodstock within the hour. Nothing better.
We spent two nights in the Courtyard Suites part of the Beekman Arms Hotel in Rhinebeck. The suite was very large and clean and the king bed was comfortable. The complimentary sherry was delicious and welcome, and a nice touch. However, the place needs a serious upgrade. The wall colours of pea green and yellow are dated, as is the curtain material. The shower pressure is good but unless you put a face cloth near the spout end of the tub the water leaks over onto to the floor. The carpets were clean but not laid properly and have buckles. Free continental breakfast was terrible. Stale bagels and prepackaged buns, forlorn hardboiled eggs, packaged yogurt and very bad cheap tasting coffee. Come on guys, you can do better!! You are resting on your laurels! The main hotel looks interesting but we won't be in a hurry to come back.…
No elevators. We were on third floor. Never asked if we could manage luggage and stairs. Floors uneven and not safely marked. Having fallen I skinned both knees and received two black eyes from hitting my head. Breakfast down the street from main hotel very rudimentary! Can’t imagine walking to breakfast in storms or snow! Parking not convenient. Certainly not a good value for the money!
This is specifically for the Delameter Inn, not the Beekman Arms. Overall a very nice one-night stay. We stayed in the carriage house, and it was very interesting with a unique room layout. Room was clean, and there were no issues. The little in-room refrigerator had seen better days cosmetically but it worked, and that's the most important thing. Room rates seem a little high for what you get, they seem to have a bit of a monopoly on the accommodations if you want to stay in the town center, but ultimately a nice property and worth the convenience of being so close to everything. Maybe just do a little mini fridge upgrade?
Not Happy with this Hotel. I booked a Suite in the Old Firehouse. It was large and dark and dreary poorly decorated. It had a huge tub not to be enjoyed for lack of enough HOT WATER. On the up side the Tavern was very cute and friendly service at the bar. I ordered sliders, however, and the order came with only one, it was Ok. Calamari was very good. I would not stay here or eat here again, I'm sorry to say.
INN Location-excellent- but INN is dark and dreary in appearance- Stayed in the main INN-not in the updated Delamater establishment- Check-in-very accommodating, helpful, and understanding of our unacceptable of room selected- Changed us to the 3rd floor NO elevator in the building-expected due to historic age of building- You must carry your own bags to your room. No one to help, or will help- No parking available-only on the street if you drive, be aware of this. And be aware of zoning and hours- Building definitely needs renovating, cleaning, updating, and a new look for an old establishment that boasts historical significance- Furniture throughout the Inn is old, needs repair, and definite reupholstery. Old fabrics, smelled, not very attractive- 1st room booked-2 double beds- Room smelled due to old wall-to-wall carpeting, old historic fireplace, and bed linens- Could not stand the moldy smell- Bathroom- definitely older fixtures. Toilet low and old Shower curtain, old bathtub, sink and fixtures. Floor chipped. BATHROOM SMALL and cannot handle 2 individuals at one time- Bed dressings-old, dowdy, fabrics not attractive in fact, torn in some places and does not fit the bed properly- Ceilings low-but expected due to the historic nature of the Inn- No chair to sit in, in room- Curtains, and I call them curtains- not draperies-cafe curtains- they were very old, not attractive at all, and from the early 1950's-Definitely distracted from the room- Wonderful old wood bed. But dressed poorly with old linens-no blanket, just sheets Very unhappy with the room and asked to change- They did accommodate request- No elevator in the building-can be expected due to historic nature- New room on 3rd floor-steps up to 3rd floor very steep andTHERE IS NO ONE THAT TAKES YOUR BAGS TO YOUR ROOM. You must carry them up the stairs-which are very steep, that I just said, yourself. New Room- ceiling showed water leaks and was patched-poorly. Furniture in room was chipped. Bed was chipped. Uncomfortable. Room did have air conditioning, but. remained ice cold with NO way of regulating the temperature- Bathroom- Extremely small and cramped .Toilet extremely low and had an incorrect toilet seat-too small for the oval designed toilet. Bathroom definitely not attractive and walls showed paint chips, old faucet, etc. too much here to describe- Floor-NO CARPETING old pine floor, which was great This Room did not smell-thank goodness Table lamps- old not attractive- from the 1960's To resemble candlesticks Accomodations came with breakfast-croissants wrapped in saran wrap, hard boiled eggs, old fruit, coffee and yoguart. Nothing fresh, not presented attractively. Cutlery-and plates- plastic Coffee- presented in paper cups. OK-just OK- Would I return to this INN-------NO AND I WOULD DEFINITELY NOT recommend it even though it has great history. It must be presented differently when booking. Definitley-OVERPRICED Definitely disappointed and couldn't wait to leave…
We had a delightful lunch outside on the lawn. The servers were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our wine and shrimp salad and turkey panini. Lovely grounds and perfect lunch! Want to return and stay at this historic hotel
3 nights of post Labor Day mini vacation was lovely. Large well appointed room in the Guest Rooms behind the main hotel (Beekman Arms). Food in the restaurant was excellent. We felt we got a very good value for our money.
I stayed for 2 nights at the Delamater, at one of the nonhistoric properties--essentially a motel room. The room was very nice, comfy bed and pillows, clean, looked new, the bathroom was spacious and spotless. But no blackout curtains. Why not? Even motels have those. The breakfast was worse than any I've had even in a modest motel: bad coffee, one cereal choice (set out in a bowl not a dispenser), some fruit, some yogurt, a sad assembly of really low quality bagels, croissants and muffins. Not even juice. Remove the complimentary sherry in your room (nice but not needed) and get a better breakfast. But the really big problem is: I couldn't get wifi first evening. I called the desk repeatedly--busy or no answer. And as I was not in the main hotel, I couldn't just go downstairs (besides I was already in my nightgown). Eventually I reached a service!--who took my name and number and said someone would get back to me immediately. NO ONE EVER DID. What if the problem had been major, like a leaking toilet? Even when I checked out, it was in the Delamater's "office"; the clerk was in another room (because they also have to set out breakfast) and I merely put my keys in a basket. I did, at breakfast the first morning, tell the clerk about no one answering the desk. She wrote it down but no one called to discuss this with me. For this amount of money (not in a place with a view--my room looked out onto my parking lot) good service should be paramount. So while the room was mostly very good--the rest wasn't. Very disappointed.…
I booked a room at the Beekman Arms for a friend’s wedding and I was sure to ask for the Beekman (rather than the sister property the delamater inn). I confirmed two days before, all good, and then I got a call the day before my arrival that I was actually going to be in the delamater. They’re only a block apart so that was fine, but the delamater was dingy and tired. The bed was clean, but the bathroom, carpets, and decor looked like it hadn’t been redone in over 30 years. Again, all this would have been fine, but they had the gall to charge $340 a night for a standard room! That is a ridiculous rate, a holiday inn is nicer. Very frustrating, but it appears they have a monopoly. Good luck!
