Castle Hotel & Spa

Situated on sprawling hilltop acres overlooking the Hudson River, the main tower of Castle Hotel & Spa forms the highest point in Westchester County. Castle Hotel & Spa is a medieval-style structure and historic landmark that was meticulously transformed into a luxury hotel. Offering guests royal-quality service, luxurious guestrooms, classic French-American cuisine and a secluded setting, the Castle is only 25 miles north of Manhattan. The award-winning Equus Restaurant was recently rated EXCELLENT by The New York Times. The Castle Hotel & Spa opened as a luxury hotel in 1997; 16 years after being designated a historic landmark.

The Wedding Ceremony

Our Great Hall with its impressive 40-foot vaulted ceiling, beautiful Tiffany-style stained-glass windows with heraldic motifs, and the musician's balcony is an exquisite setting for a wedding ceremony and reception.

The unique architecture of The Castle lends itself to many stunning photo opportunities. The ornate décor on the staircase in the Marble Hall offers a classic indoor backdrop and the artfully landscaped grounds provide a garden-like setting for outdoor photos.

A complimentary suite is included for the bride and groom for the evening of their wedding when the minimum guarantee is met.

The Reception

Upon arrival at The Castle, you and your guests are assisted by our courteous valet staff, then warmly greeted by our host and escorted into your private wing of The Castle. The coat check and powder room are always attended for the convenience of your guests.

Our sales team is ready to speak with you about your special day.

Please email us at sales@castlehotelandspa.com or call 914-524-6366 to discuss your wedding in further detail. Read less

My wedding at Castle on the Hudson was exceptional. Our coordinator, Carrie was wonderful to work with. She was always friendly, patient, and timely with her responses to our emails and phone calls. She listened to all of my ideas and created an environment that was exactly how I had envisioned it. Each step along the way, her calm demeanor alleviated any stress I felt which allowed me to really relax and enjoy the entire day. The entire staff at Castle on the Hudson was attentive and lovely to myself, my husband, and all of our family and friends the entire weekend of the wedding. The rooms we stayed in were beautiful and spacious. The castle itself is gorgeous and the grounds are landscaped beautifully. The food at the wedding was excellent. My husband is a chef and we had a handful of guests that are either chefs or food enthusiasts and they all raved about how good the food was. The overall attention to detail was remarkable. Carrie managed to include all the unique little touches I requested throughout the evening making my wedding that much more special. From start to finish it was everything I imagined it would be.

We could not have been happier with our choice of venue. The Castle on The Hudson made our wedding day truly magical. We have received endless compliments and rave reviews from our guests regarding the venue, quality of food and quality of service. A number have pointed out that this was by far the best wedding venue and food they have ever experienced (this included individuals who are used to high-end venues and dining). Food was exquisite, the dining room looked breathtaking and the level of service was simply top-notch. The Castle staff, from bellman to the General Manager, went out of their way to make our day special and memorable. Thank you!

From the initial interview through the last hour of the reception, the catering, wiat and manageriall staff operated with an outstanding sense of professionalism and decorum. Carrie Fantel, Sales Manager, offered any and every possible option avaialble and then happily agreed to modify menus as well as room set-up. The venue was set for the Christmas Season so with the use of candle light, the hall looked magnificent. Since this was one of the first same-sex weddings since NY passed The Marriage Equality Law, the staff was keen on leaving a lasting impression on all who attended. The staff was courteous, welcoming and above all professional. The food was of the highest quality from taste to presentation (the white-gloved European Service by the Waiters and Waitresses was quite impressive). The passed hors d'ouvres were delectable and abundant! The food stations were outstanding albeit "The Mediterranean Table" could have offered a bit more diverse selection. The standard place settings, chairs and tables were perfect for the Castle's decor. The venue itself looks much bigger without tables so the "Castle" is most appropraite for a top-notch intimate wedding. The DJ came equipped with LED up-lighting that was placed throughout the main hall and entrance ways creating a truly spectacular colorful effect. The staff worked seamlessly; they reset rooms and maintainied a warm accommodating space with ease. The Castle on the Hudson could be a perfect place for a perfect wedding or special occasion.

The Castle on the Hudson did an outstanding job for our wedding - the staff and sales team were amazing and everyone went above and beyond with our guests. I couldn't have chosen a better venue for our ceremony and reception.

Gilbert, the general manager, was AMAZING! We booked our wedding with him, and he worked with us for the entire year to pull all of our elements together.

Highly recommend the Castle on the Hudson for anyone looking for that extra special and intimate wedding feeling. LOVED THEM!

My daughter was married at the Castle 1/1/11. So many of the guests said that it was the most beautiful, magical wedding they had ever been to. The Castle was still decorated for the holidays which added to the fairytale atmosphere. The Great Hall looked amazing for the evening ceremony and reception. The staff was helpful, professional and friendly. The food at the cocktail hour and reception was beyond incredible. I have absolutely no regrets - it was perfection.

The Castle is the venue for the world's most perfect setting for a wedding. Elegant, timeless and classic, the Castle sets the perfect backdrop for your perfect day.

Nearly two years before our wedding, it honestly was the only venue we ever looked at. Lisa Benoit is an amazing girl whom bent over backwards to satisfy our demanding needs. Everything from the flawless and gorgeous bridal suite, the stunning gardens at sunset, the magical Great Room and the party Caramai Ballroom; the wedding was really the time of our lives.

The food is second to none. I only wish that every wedding I've ever been to had such an outstanding and quality presentation and food service. Make sure you save room for the dessert.

Michael Casarella is a lifesaver. We had booked a different location but didn't feel too good about it. After meeting Mike and having him walk us through the whole process, I felt an incredible sense of relief. I cancelled with our other location, and booked Castle immediatley. All of my requests were possible and Mike would work around us. Mike is an incredibly responsive person, great customer service, and went above and beyond his call of duty to accommodate our constantly changing rooming needs. We had our rehearsal dinner at at the Castle, and from the time we checked in, through to the ceremony & reception, I was completely relaxed! Between Mike and my day of coordinator, everything was taken care of.

Everything went off without a hitch, and we were so happy that we chose the castle as our reception venue. The food was INCREDIBLE, and the service was unbeatable. Our guests commented on how it was like a fairytale wedding! It is not cheap, but considering that you don't have to worry about a wedding planner or decorations really (I mean, it's all built into the stunning decor of the castle), you definitely get a bang for your buck. The entire staff was so helpful and attentive that I was able to remain calm and zen the day of, knowing that everything was being taken care of.

My (now) husband and I got married in August at the Castle on the Hudson. Words cannot begin to describe how perfect our entire experience was from start to finish. The castle itself is the most beautiful backdrop for a fairytale wedding. When you book your wedding at the castle you have an entire wing of the castle to yourself -- it truly feels like you are in your own royal home. The staff caters to you and your every need like nothing I have ever experienced -- literally, every time I needed something, there was someone there to help me; however, the staff were never on top of me or my wedding party -- they just somehow seemed to know when we needed them.

The service is truly impeccable and the rooms are all beautiful. The bridal suite is stunning and has the most beautiful views from all of the windows. I have to say Gilbert is, without a doubt, the most amazing manager I have ever had the privilege to work with -- every detail was taken care of perfectly and he made sure my entire wedding day went off without a hitch. From start-to-finish, spending the last year with Gilbert was a dream for a bride-to-be -- he is professional, kind, calming, and able to help make sure every wish you have comes true. I did not need a professional wedding planner with Gilbert there to make sure the entire day-of the event went so smoothly. My husband and I will always remember Gilbert fondly and be so grateful for how absolutely perfect he made our day.

The food is out of this world -- aside from our 150-person wedding, we also hosted our 75+-person brunch at the Castle. The food is something people still talk to us about -- the pairings were excellent and absolutely fit for foodies. I would highly recommend the Viennese dessert option for brides -- it was absolutely worth the extra money and our guests loved it.

I honestly have nothing but the most positive things to say about the castle, the staff, the food, the rooms, and the surroundings. My wedding was perfect.

My husband and I had our wedding at the Castle in February this year - the venue itself was gorgeous and all our guests enjoyed the unique touches of the reception. Since it was during the winter we wanted an interior which would sparkle in candlelight and resemble traditional banquets. We had cocktails in the Great Hall, then a three course sit down dinner downstairs in the reception hall, and dancing & dessert back in the Great Hall. The spaces fit 100 guests perfectly! While planning the wedding, I was concerned with many of the details about the reception (I did not hire a wedding planner) - however, the few days preceding the day, the staff of the Castle were a tremendous resource and helped to decorate the venue exactly to order. Scott Woldman was a huge help and pleasure to work with - and helped my 92 year old Grandmother through out the evening. The venue is not cheap - but the food was amazing and worth the price. The Castle is also a reception hall which is continuously being used - however, on the day of the wedding, the attention to detail was a pleasant surprise!

My husband and I had our wedding at the Castle in February this year - the venue itself was gorgeous and all our guests enjoyed the unique touches of the reception.

They were wonderful to deal with. They even provided a master of ceremonies who did a great job. Half way through the organization, the person who was dealing with our wedding left the castle, and the replacement glided in seamlessly and did a great job. On the downside, they do not have a handle on the bills they issue - they issued the bill twice for the wrong amount of people attending.

The Castle was a wonderful venue--beautiful, amazing food, wonderful work staff, all very professional. We were disappointed with the maitre-d', who was rather disorganized and not trustworthy. The wedding coordinator was also good up until the last hour and a half of our wedding, at which point she became less available, as she had already left us to plan for the next wedding of the day. With that said, we would still highly recommend the Castle, and perhaps a designated wedding planner to ensure that everything goes smoothly and according to plan.

Thank you for choosing Castle Hotel & Spa for your special wedding day. While we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the award-winning cuisine and spectacular setting, we want to resolve your issue with the "coordinator". However, we do not know who you are and cannot reach out to you. We encourage you to contact us so we can help put things right... Thank you.

Overall we were very pleased with my daughter's 10/09/11 wedding. The Castle is an exquisite venue and will satisfy any bride who dreams of being a princess for the day. The food is wonderful, the ambiance remarkable and the wait staff was exceedingly polite and professional.

However, we had a miserable experience with their sales director. He was often rude and condescending. Although the reception rooms are magnificent, they are small. We had 88 guests; any more would have been a tight fit. It was also quite hot in both rooms. Not sure if they have airconditioning. If not, a summer wedding could be uncomfortable.

There was no one directing the guests to the wedding site once the valets took their cars and in fact, some guests were ushered into the garden, while the wedding was being held in the Great Hall. This was difficult for some of our older guests who had difficulty walking. The staff at the reservations desk took no notice of the guests milling around the lobby.

I would recommend this venue to brides looking for a chic, old-world venue, but they shouldn't necessarily believe that they won't have to take an interactive role in the preparations. If my daughter hadn't noticed on their website that a tasting was being held, we would have been forced to choose our menu without ever seeing or tasting a thing.
