The Woodlands (Houston), Texas, September 2015 … Benchmark Hospitality International, a leading U.S.-based hospitality management company, has added one of the nation’s premier conference retreats to its Benchmark Resorts & Hotels portfolio – Doral Arrowwood. Located amid 114 wooded acres in Rye Brook, New York, Doral Arrowwood is north of New York City and easily accessible to metro airports. The property is the latest addition to Benchmark’s exceptional collection of hotels and resorts with superb meeting facilities throughout the United States.
“Doral Arrowwood ranks among the conference industry’s most prominent and respected venues,” said Alex Cabanas, CEO of Benchmark Hospitality International. “We are very proud to have been selected by Doral Arrowwood's ownership, the original founders of Doral Hotels & Resorts, to immediately take over management and welcome this legendary property to the Benchmark Resorts & Hotels' family.”
Doral Arrowwood’s manicured grounds, topnotch conference, dining and recreational facilities make the award-winning resort the choice of business and leisure travelers, conference planners, as well as families, golfers, and couples planning the perfect wedding. Just 30 miles from New York City, Doral Arrowwood is easily reached via various interstate highways linking the resort to New York and nearby Connecticut and New Jersey, as well as New York’s airports.
With 363 luxury guestrooms, including seven suites, Doral Arrowwood can accommodate its corporate and leisure guests in comfort and style. Bountiful brunches, lavish buffets, superb à la carte dining, and casual pub fare are served in the resort’s three restaurants. The Atrium, with its floor-to ceiling windows and striking views, is ideal for romantic dinners, banquets, buffets and the resort’s popular Saturday Night Buffet Dinner Dance. The Atrium’s Sunday Brunch draws both locals and resort guests. In warmer weather, al fresco dining is available on the patio and at Mulligans Café, an informal restaurant near the golf course. Rated among Westchester’s Best Bars, The Pub is the place to gather after a meeting, a game of golf or for a lunch or dinner of hearty pub fare. Doral Arrowwood also provides in-room dining for hotel guests.
The resort’s inspiring setting, expert staff and dedicated conference center have earned Doral Arrowwood an enviable reputation as the premier meeting venue in the New York metropolitan area. The conference center includes 33 dedicated function rooms and a divisible 6,500 square-foot ballroom that can be used for meetings, trade shows, events and weddings.
The Executive Center at Doral Arrowwood includes 110,000 additional square feet of meeting space to accommodate small meetings or larger gatherings of up to 174 people. This comprehensive meeting environment contains 10 meeting rooms, 11 breakout rooms, an executive conference room, a 174-seat amphitheater, two 50-seat amphitheaters, and 13 small office spaces. An upscale Executive Boardroom features a private dining room, butler service and a private concierge.
WiFi is available throughout the Executive Center. A professional, onsite audiovisual department provides the most modern production equipment. Doral Arrowwood’s inspirational teambuilding retreat programs include Project Excel, Paintball, and Corporate Olympics. The resort’s numerous recreational facilities can also be used for teambuilding exercises and for relaxation and socializing.
Doral Arrowwood boasts an expansive sports center with five lighted tennis courts, racquetball and squash courts, and a swimming pool designed for both indoor and outdoor use. The Health Club is equipped with the most modern cardiovascular and strength-training equipment. Golfers can play away on the award-winning nine-hole, par-35 Robert von Hagge-designed golf course that includes a pro shop, 25-tee driving range, and practice putting green. Professional instruction is available onsite at the Mitchell Spearman Golf Academy.
