This Doubletree is grossly mis-branded by Hilton. It is a hotel only in name - it's more of a Hilton Garden Inn calling itself a Doubletree.
The lobby is beautiful and welcoming, but the rest of the property feels a little more like a lesser tier of the Hilton brand.
Pros: Location - convenient to Route 9 and I-287; Vending - lots of vending machines around the property for late night snacks/drinks; If you're visiting Sleepy Hollow, this location is very convenient to the town.
Cons: If we all put our grandmothers to the task of cleaning this place, it would be done a lot faster than the housekeeping staff - don't expect it done at a time that would be convenient for you; Parking - not very well managed during large events and the parking spaces are exactly the width of a small SUV (Jeep Wrangler), so good luck if you have one of those or larger; no gift shop for forgotten items or food items that might not be in vending
We chose the Tarrytown House Estate due to its proximity to some of the sites we wanted to see in the area. As it turned out, the hotel was a perfect choice. The hotel itself is part of a large complex of buildings and rooms that are also used as a conference center. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well appointed.
There is a nice restaurant on the premises called Cellar 49, workout facilities, and lots of welcoming green space should you just want to take in the fresh air. Also located on the property is the King Mansion, a circa 1840 Georgian style mansion.
From the estate, it is a short drive to Washington Irving's Sunnyside or any of the other local historical sites.
