The USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice 2020 ranked The Abbey Inn & Spa #3 on its list, which cited the boutique hotel’s adaptive reuse of a former convent and its full-service spa, farm-to-table restaurant Apropos and luxurious suites. A panel of experts partnered with 10Best editors to pick the initial nominees, and the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote.
“We are honored that USA Today’s readers chose us as one of their favorite new hotels,” said Gilbert Baeriswil, the Abbey Inn & Spa’s general manager. “Our hotel was designed to give guests an unforgettable experience in a historic property overlooking the gorgeous Hudson River. This recognition is an acknowledgement by the public that we accomplished what we set out to do.”
