The Destination
The United States Military Academy at West Point—in New York's Hudson Valley—has earned a reputation for being buttoned-up, but a visit to this historic post can be more colorful than you might expect. Depending on where you look, you'll see cadets marching in gray, 200-year-old buildings of slate grey stone, green grass with a perennial crew cut, or autumn leaves glowing red, yellow, and orange. History buffs will be delighted by the Cadet Chapel's 21,000-pipe church organ and the West Point Museum's impressive collection of war memorabilia (including an atomic bomb). Farther afield, the surrounding valley teems with antique shops, apple orchards, wineries, and art festivals.

The Digs
Sharing the West Point grounds with generals, cadets, and the centuries-old arsenal is The History Thayer Hotel, offering comfortable Old World accommodations to guests seeking an insider's glimpse of the academy. The hotel has impressive history of its own—the guest list includes U.S. Presidents, international dignitaries, and a parade of celebrities.

Today's visitors will enjoy the same hilltop views of the Hudson River Valley and the U.S. Military Academy from their spacious guest rooms. The Thayer's dining options channel the gourmet tradition of the nearby Culinary Institute of America (CIA-trained chefs run the show here), while a journey through our nation's military history—or into the scenic wonders of the Hudson River Valley—are just steps away.

  • "Ethereal Hudson River views ennoble this imposing brick-and-granite hotel on the grounds of West Point. Sleek marble floors, iron chandeliers, and portraits of military leaders bedeck the main lobby."
