My boyfriend and I went to the Rhinecliff for a romantic getaway. We took the third floor suite, an incredible room with a massive patio/balcony overlooking the Hudson, a corner spa and all the amenities one would expect. The hotel was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful, advising us on all sorts of things, and the included breakfast was delicious. The town itself is tiny, but an $8 cab ride was all it took to get to Rhinebeck, which is much bigger. For us, who live in NYC and do not drive, this was a fantastic option. Two minutes from the Amtrak station, easy to get to and cheap to get around. Such an easy escape for anyone looking for a pause from the hectic speed of the city. The only downside was perhaps the room felt a bit dusty, but I think the age of the hotel, coupled with being right next to the train line (fine for us but maybe not for those who are easily disturbed by noise), this might be hard to avoid.
