Wedding Destination... Hudson Valley

There’s nothing like a wedding at The Grandview. With magnificent views of the Hudson River, indoor and outdoor ballrooms, and panoramic vistas, it’s one of the most stunning settings on earth. But what makes your event at The Grandview even more spectacular is that you and your guests will experience one of the most beautiful destinations in New York State—the historic Hudson Valley.

The Grandview - Hudson River Marina

The Grandview is owned by Bonura Hospitality, the premier name in catering in the Hudson Valley. In addition to one of the most spectacular settings for your wedding, you and your guests will stay at The Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel, the area’s most upscale hotel and conference center.


On top of gorgeous accommodations, you—and your guests with an overnight stay—will enjoy a free hot breakfast buffet at the hotel. Shadows on the Hudson, our stunning riverfront restaurant attached to The Grandview, can accommodate your Sunday brunch or rehearsal dinner (with complimentary package upgrades) as well as late night, post-wedding celebrations. 

The Grandview Trolley

For guests traveling by train, our complimentary shuttle from the nearby Metro North train station means that your guests can enjoy the weekend without the worry of a car, parking, or transportation. We’ll pick them up and whisk them to the hotel and The Grandview as needed. They can even travel by boat and dock at our state-of-the-art marina.   


We also ensure that your wedding is accessible to all your guests with clear directions and easy access to The Grandview, complimentary valet parking and shuttle service, and discounted rates at The Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel.
