Where should I stay near White Plains, NY
June 5, 2012 11:31 AM   Subscribe

I'm traveling to New York and looking for hotel recommendations.

My boss and I are traveling to White Plains, NY in two weeks and she's charged me with finding a hotel. We're flying into LaGuardia airport (arriving around 2:30pm) and driving a rental to White Plains. Open to staying anywhere between, in nothing lower than a 3 star hotel (3.5 or 4 would be preferred).

I've never been to this part of the country, so looking for recommendations for a good place to stay that might have some cool things to explore when we arrive (we'll only be there the one night).

Thanks in advance!

Wait, are you going to be in White Plains? Or somewhere in New Jersey? I am a bit confused by the wording of your question.

The Ritz-Carlton in White Plains is quite nice, if money is no object. The Hyatt House is a very pleasant suite hotel if you're on a bit more of a budget. The Renaissance Westchester isn't bad.

White Plains is in New York, not New Jersey; I'd contact the mods and ask if they can make a change.

You wouldn't even drive through NJ to get to White Plains.

Oh, cripes. Sorry, New York - not sure where Jersey came from!

Here's the Trip Advisor page for White Plains.

If you want to stay in White Plains, I'd just pick a big chain like a Marriott or Hyatt. There's a Ritz Carlton nearby too. It's mostly suburbs around there - don't expect anything exciting.

I was far less thrilled with that Crowne Plaza than the Trip Advisor reviewers are, but it has been some years since I stayed there and it may have been renovated since.

If it's within your budget and not too out of the way for your plans, stay at Tarrytown House! So pretty. The breakfast buffet is pretty nice, also.

Stay in NYC ... take the train into White Plains (30-45 minutes each way).
