Residence Inn Hotel Opens in Hyde Park

HYDE PARK, NY — Shaner Hotel Group — a Pennsylvania-based hotel owner and operator — has opened the Inn at Bellefield Residence Inn, a 136-room all-suite hotel. The Marriott-branded hotel is located on Route 9 right across from the Culinary Institute of America in the heart of New York’s Hudson Valley.

The hotel is the first building completed at Bellefield at Historic Hyde Park, a planned $1 billion hospitality, agritourism and residential attraction.

“The Inn at Bellefield is a signature addition to the Shaner Hotel Group’s diverse portfolio,” said Lance T. Shaner, Chairman and CEO, Shaner Hotel Group, LP. “With a superb location in the center of Dutchess County, the Inn at Bellefield appeals to business and leisure travelers valuing luxury, comfort, sophistication and superb convenience. A special experience awaits.”

Located on a natural rise with dynamic views, the Inn at Bellefield is minutes from the Culinary Institute of America, Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library & Museum, Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site, Walkway Over the Hudson and local colleges.

“The Inn at Bellefield imparts a unique, memorable lodging experience that will surpass guests’ top-flight expectations,” said General Manager Adam Pregno. “For example, the hotel will be curating multiple experiences for our guests, such as mixology classes, cooking classes and partnering with local attractions to provide wine- and sake-tasting tours, among many other experiences.”

Pregno also emphasized the Inn at Bellefield’s reverence of Hyde Park’s renowned history. Tributes include sycamore wood in the hotel, repurposed from a 230-year-old sycamore tree on the property, and President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s fireside-chat recordings playing alongside outdoor fire pits.

A bevy of other amenities are provided as well. Inn at Bellefield suites offer full kitchens and distinct living and sleeping rooms, complementing ergonomic workstations, an upscale fitness center and state-of-the-art conference spaces. The Grand Ballroom accommodates 150 guests. The Storyteller, a Farm to Table bar/lounge, offers eclectic dining featuring specialty craft beers and spirits. Its menu, a homage to the rich tapestry of storytelling, excites the imagination and tantalizes the senses. Most ingredients are sourced from local farms, including grass-fed Bettinger Farms beef, Bulich Farm produce, Rockland Farms honey and others. In addition, Eleanor’s Market, honoring First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, offers snacks and sundries.

The Inn at Bellefield is a $55 million project. Bellefield at Historic Hyde Park will feature restaurants, breweries, a performing arts center, a second hotel, an amphitheater and 801 residences. “The Inn at Bellefield propels Hyde Park’s reputation as a worldwide tourism destination,” said Thomas Mulroy, Chairman and CEO, T-Rex Capital Group, LLC, which is orchestrating the Bellefield campus’ full development. “We’re proud to partner on this premier hotel.”

Michael Oates, President of the Hudson Valley Economic Development Corp., praised the Inn at Bellefield’s economic significance. “This hotel’s opening is a landmark moment,” he said. “Construction created 200 jobs; there are 35 permanent jobs. Lodging and payroll will fuel the economy for generations. This is a magnificent addition.”
