After the jump, a press release describing the changes.

Highly respected for over a quarter century as the premier hotel and conference destination in metro New York, Doral Arrowwood recently removed the wraps from its redesigned Atrium restaurant. Interior designer Cami Weinstein of Cami Weinstein Interior Design coordinated the upgrade of the 8,000-square-foot dining and event space, which includes new chairs and upholstery, table tops, wallpaper, window treatments and awnings.

“Doral Arrowwood is opening its doors to the busy spring and summer season with a fresh new look and ambience that our guests will really enjoy,” said Steve Mabus, General Manager of Doral Arrowwood. “Already, we have received numerous compliments from our guests.”

A new website , timed to coincide with the re-opening of the Atrium, showcases Doral Arrowwood’s interior spaces, picturesque setting, services, and amenities in an easy-to-navigate format. Information on conferences, meetings, weddings, and special events is just one click away from the site’s home page. Visitors can use the site to book reservations, learn about conference and lodging packages, and obtain Google-driven directions to the hotel, as well as submit information to obtain a price estimate for meetings or events and inquire about employment opportunities.

The efforts of Doral Arrowwood’s food and beverage specialists to upgrade the hotel’s wine list have been rewarded with a 2009 Restaurant List Award from Wine Spectator. Award winners were announced in Wine Spectator magazine and at In addition to tripling the wine list to 450 different offerings, the hotel has over 5,000 bottles of wine in inventory. A first-time winner, Doral Arrowwood looks forward to establishing its reputation among the wine destinations in the area.

  1. Has anyone eaten there recently? I see they’ve upgraded the decor and the wine list but they do not say anything about the food. We ate there around 10 years ago for Sunday brunch, I had always heard how it was supposed to be great. It was terrible, just standard hotel food. Very disappointing, especially considering that it was not cheap.
