USA/Mid-Atlantic: Yonkers, NY
This 93-room boutique hotel in Westchester County, just north of NYC, occupies the site that was once the corporate office and training center for famed ice cream entrepreneur Tom Carvel’s namesake firm. Decked out in a custom-designed, ultramodern palette of purple, gold and white by Manhattan designer Therese Virserius, the property’s 4,800-square-foot Crystal Ballroom can accommodate groups of up to 550 theater-style or a reception for 350. Owners Maria and Nick Pampafikos are very involved in the community, hosting numerous fundraising events and donating to local charities, in addition to bringing a touch of elegance and class to Yonkers that attracts dozens of weddings, birthdays and other celebrations throughout the year.
