If you are visiting West Point, this is the place to stay. We were greeted by a warm and welcoming check-in staff. The hotel is old originating back to I believe 1926. Huge wood burning fireplace in lobby as well as original West Point lantern hanging in entrance are elements of charm that can't be seen just anywhere. Visit the 4th floor where every room is named for a West Point Graduate who has gone onto excel in various aspects of life. Our room was comfortable, loved the bed, but my 6'4 husband found it a bit short for him. Newly added sensor lighting is a nice touch. Remember hotel is old and our windows were a bit drafty. There are shades that help. It did not take away from our stay at all. If you are a picky sort and like modern updates, this place isn't for you. If you appreciate history, because the place is running rampant with it then it's must. We had two queen beds and a pull out sofa. We weren't in room much, but there was a nice tv, ample closet space and very clean bathroom. If you have kids there is a McDonald's just outside the security gates and a few places to eat that have a variety of selections for the pickiest of eaters. McDonald's is the only franchise you'll find in close proximity. Visitor center and West Point Museum all within very short walking distance. (Great Army merchandise for sale in the visitor center as well). I might add that while we did not eat in the restaurant, it looked lovely and menu if I didn't gave three kids with me would have been beyond my expectations. Bistro offers coffee, tea other assorted beverages and pastries in the am until 10:30 AM. You can dine at their little seating area or get it to go.
