Westchester County will soon be home to the first Platinum LEED Certified Hotel in the northeast. The 72-room Holiday Inn Express and Suites will be constructed at the corner of John Walsh Boulevard and Louisa Street. This location will offer its guests scenic views of the majestic Peekskill Bay, the Hudson River, and the Bear Mountain Bridge. The location of this hotel will offer its patrons excellent transportation choices with easy access for both auto and mass transit. The hotel is located less than 1 mile from a two way interchange off Route 9. In addition, it is located about 1/2 mile from Peekskill's Metro North Train Station. Peekskill is on the MTA Hudson Line and provides commuter train service to New York City's Grand Central Station in about 55 minutes. The Hotel has received all planning commission approval and incentives from the City of Peekskill's Industrial Development Agency. Construction is well underway with interior room finishes, a conference room and new pool being finished by the end of this year.
