here is the advertisement in case anyone wanted to see it.
my bil  went to check out the hotel and says its actually quite a nice hotel (has an interior courtyard -Courtyard by Marriott style) but has proportionately very little public  areas compared to how many rooms, which can be a concern when you spend most of your time in the public areas with all the other guests especially when you expect every room to be occupied.

And has anyone ever been to the Hudson Valley Resort,  where they are doing pesach this year?
I was there recently.

It's less of a resort and more of an old hotel with a golf course and lake in the back.

Very nice grounds for walking around but most of the rooms are spacious but badly need renovations.

I guess this confirms this:

There is no such Hotel as the "Hilton Estates Brandywine Valley".

Its the equivalent of making Pesach at the LI Sheraton on the side of the Long Island Expressway and calling it the "St. Regis South Hampton"

anyone know any lower end programs in the tristate?

My post was in reference to the Hudson Valley Resort (formerly the Granite), not about the Hilton thingy.

2-3 per couple that sounds really little. There are places that cheap?

seems like they went up in price. Ive been with them when they were in NJ. Nice, no pressure program. this is a little far out but still considering it.

I was there in 2013.

Decent program with out all the fancy frills. Food was pretty good and plentiful. But again, nothing fancy.
