This past Sunday, I shared Sunday Brunch at the MacArthur Riverview Restaurant and a tour  of the hotel with Jose Tejedor; Director of Sales and Marketing of the historic hotel.  The Thayer Hotel opened it’s doors in the 1920’s and went through a huge transition about six years ago both in renovations and management. Jose talks about the hotel and it’s ambiance to the feel of a mid-evil castle on the outside but with all the modern amenities on the inside.

Zulo is the rooftop outdoor bar open April through the fall. Here too, the views are spectacular and  in season things kick off at happy hour.

If your a local and you have cabin fever be sure to take a short scenic drive to West Point for Sunday Brunch, an evening out with dinner or watching the game with some friends. If your a weekender or coming up from New York City for a getaway you will love the “Getaway Experience” at The Thayer.
