New York’s Hilton Westchester Completes $35 Million Renovation
The 445-room Hilton Westchester in Rye Brook, N.Y., recently completed a $35 million, multi-year renovation to transform its guest rooms and public spaces in the image of country clubs. The renovation is part of a larger scope of major projects by individual hotels above standard annual capital expenditures across the global portfolio of Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide. Beginning in 2011, the projects currently total more than $3 billion during a three-year period.
The property features a new lobby and upgraded guest rooms that include a large desk with ergonomic chair, high-speed Internet service, 42-inch flat-panel TV, plush chair with ottoman, MP3 dock and the luxurious Hilton Serenity bed by Serta. The property also boasts 32,000 square feet of newly renovated flexible space. It is the only hotel in Westchester County with two ballrooms.
Other features of the hotel include an on-property business center, audio-visual equipment rental, concierge, Precor fitness center, Olympic-size indoor pool, outdoor pool and three year-round tennis courts. Other on-property recreational facilities include basketball courts, saunas, indoor whirlpool, jogging track and a walking trail. The hotel formerly was known as Hilton Rye Town.
