Built at the turn of the last century, the castle replicates the Norman architecture of medieval Europe, with its massive stone facade and imposing towers and turrets. Upon entering, guests are swept away by the sumptuous interior with its rich wooden embellishments, elaborate stained glass, crystal chandeliers and plastered ceilings. The castle was the dream of Howard Carroll, a well-respected newspaperman, playwright and businessman who oversaw its construction in 1910. Despite its grand scale, the Carroll family considered the castle to be their home and lived and entertained here until 1940. After leaving the family's ownership, the property served as a boy's boarding school and later, home to an investment business. In 1996, the castle was transformed into a luxury hotel, offering every modern convenience in a grand historic setting.
The Castle Hotel and Spa also features two magnificents banquet rooms with private entrance. The magnificent Great Hall with a 40-foot vaulted ceiling and Tiffany-style windows and the gracefully designed Caramai Ballroom that can accommodate up to 200 in a truly royal environment. The Arthur A. Litt Library also makes the perfect setting for a private luncheon or dinner for up to 25 guests. For a larger group, the Tapestry room can accomodate a dinner up to 45 guests.
Situated on the banks of the Hudson River, a twenty-minute drive from Westchester Airport, one hour from LaGuardia, JFK and Newark airports. Direct train service from Grand Central Station.
Each of the 31 luxury guest rooms and suites follows the baroque theme with details like four-poster beds, ornate tapestries, wood-burning fireplaces in most of the suites and views of the Hudson River. Six of the suites are more than 1,000 square feet.
Equus offers contemporary French-American cuisine in three distinct settings: the historic Oak Room transported from France, the elegant Tapestry Room and the Garden Room, offering spectacular views of the Hudson River.
