Ethereal Hudson River views ennoble this imposing brick-and-granite hotel on the grounds of West Point. (You pass through two security checkpoints on your way to the hotel.) Sleek marble floors, iron chandeliers, and portraits of military leaders bedeck the main lobby; dark, regal furnishings and prints of river scenes adorn guest rooms. Request an odd-numbered room for river vistas or an even-numbered room for views of the academy. The restaurant lures crowds to its Sunday
champagne brunch buffet ($34.95 prix fixe). In summer, angle for a table on the outdoor terrace.

Well worth the tariff, a lovely & historic hotel in an incredibly historic setting. Rooms are large, beds are good, two restaurants - the casual pub has vgood food in vlarge portions & the more elegant DR has outdoor dining. Both have rather off-hand service, but the food is more than adequate. The only way to access the West Point campus without taking a tour is to book at the Thayer Hotel. The West Point Museum is FANTASTIC - we spent over
4 hours there over 2 days & were delighted to see it full of curious visitors. We loved our two days here.
