The elegant Diamond Mills is one of the most upscale hotels in the area. It features 30 beautiful rooms with rustic European decor, balconies or terraces with views of the Esopus Creek falls, high-end amenities, and bathrooms with radiant floors. The Tavern serves a contemporary menu in a gorgeous dining room, and the adjacent bar offers a wine and cheese hour five times a week. A small fitness center, great freebies (Wi-Fi, parking, continental breakfast), and in-room massages are all perks. And reasonable rates don’t hurt either.
