FOUR POINTS BY SHERATON NEWBURGH STEWART AIRPORT
I wish all Four Points were as nice as the Four Points by Sheraton Newburgh Stewart Airport! We stayed here to go hiking nearby at Mt. Misery and to get elite stay credit towards Platinum status. Everything looks brand new. Usually, I have very low expectations from a Four Points but this hotel did not disappoint (except for them billing me on a stay paid with points). I would definitely stay here again.
If you live in the NYC area and looking for a quick getaway/day hike, this is a good choice. The hotel is less than two miles from Stewart International Airport but I was more interested in its proximity to Hudson Valley and hiking trails. Many of the hiking trails are reachable by train, but, it's much easier to roll out of bed and drive over to the trail head early to beat the heat. It gets hot out here in July!
COST & BOOKING A ROOM
The hotel is currently a category 3 and costs either 7,000 SPG points or around $200-$220. A bit pricey for a Four Points so this won't be my go to hotel for extra elite stays! Book this and other hotels at Booking.com (unless you need the elite stay credit or points, then be sure to book directly with SPG.com).
Want to stay for free? The Starwood SPG American Express card is usually offering at least 25k point sign up bonus. Some of these are affiliate links and I may receive a commission if use these links — many thanks in advance if you do!!
The room is pretty typical of a Four Points hotel – but you might notice this room has a few RED accents. The view overlooked the pool – nothing amazing. It also had a nice new LG flat screen TV, not those clunky hotel TVs…in case you felt like watching something.
I was surprised how quiet the hotel was — despite being fully booked! The bed was excellent. I couldn't find a single thing to complain about in the room.
The bathroom was super clean and felt brand new. What else can you ask for at a Four Points?
This comfortable seating area and ‘business center' was right behind check-in. I wonder what the white poof balls are for — maybe extra seats?
The pantry was stocked with the usual 7-Eleven type of snacks. Healthy people — make sure you pack your own snacks! If you're going hiking, buy the water BEFORE you head out. Finding a store out here may require a long detour (yes, we realized we didn't buy water a bit too late).
Four Points elevators are usually painfully slow. The only elevator here was not a speed demon but at least it looked interesting.
Platinum members have the option for a free full breakfast which normally costs ~$12, or 500 points. Since we were leaving early to go hiking, we took the points. Starting a 5+ hour strenuous hike on a full stomach would probably slow us down and make me want to take a nap on the trail, maybe worse!
THE CLUB LOUNGE
It's a Four Points — there is no lounge. There is a large lounging area in the lobby as well as a firepit outside.
The pool had a little surprise! No, not one of these, just changing colors!
Have you been here? Did I miss anything?
My Cameras: These photos were taken using my Canon S110 Digital Camera (which has been replaced by the S120) as well as my iPhone 6. I love the S110 – it’s tiny, fits in my pocket, and takes amazing pictures/videos.
