Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This beautiful and historic hotel sits on a hilltop at the heart of the iconic Military Academy at West Point just north of NYC, commanding breathtaking views of the Hudson River and the surrounding highlands.
  • The Gothic Revival-style Grant Ballroom has 20-foot ceilings, wrought-iron chandeliers, gargoyle architectural details. An expansive lawn and adjacent tented patio are perched just 100 feet above the river, offering a spectacular setting for your al fresco ceremony and cocktails.
  • Old-world charm and grandeur distinguish the guest rooms, where your friends and family will enjoy the benefit of full-service luxury and comfort. Extend your celebration to include a rehearsal dinner or farewell breakfast—exceptional dining is a passion here, and there are plenty of venues to choose from.
