Conference Centers near Westchester County
The IBM Learning Center is located on the campuses of IBM Corporate Headquarters in beautiful Westchester County situated about 35 miles north of New York City. Some of the finest shopping in the country is just 10 minutes away from the hotel in White Plains including Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Tiffany & Co., and FAO Schwarz.
The conference center is nestled in the Hudson Valley, rich with American history and culture. Some of the notable homes in the area include Washington Irving's Sunnyside, where the famed author of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle lived in the early 1800s; nearby Philipsburg Manor, a preserved gristmill that served as the heart of a thriving 18th century trading center; and Kykuit, home to three generations of Rockefellers and noted for extensive gardens, panoramic views of the Hudson River, and one of the most celebrated private collections of modern art in the world.
Armonk offers a variety of different restaurants and cuisines just minutes from our property. This neighborhood has quickly become a premier culinary destination in Westchester and its many choices can satisfy any pallet. What once was considered and is still considered a great shopping and parks destination, is now also considered as major "foodie" destination. From the seafood offered at La Mer, to the succulent steaks at Marc Charles Steakhouse, and to the organic Cafe Norma, these restaurants have paved the way for the recent sizzle in Armonk's dining scene. In the past year, Armonk has opened three new restaurants called Moderne Barn, Restaurant North, and The Burger Factory all of which are highly regarded and recommended. Moderne Barn offers an earthy and bold atmosphere which parallels its bold flavor seen in dishes like the Flatbread Pizza topped with goat cheese, figs, arugula and prosciutto. Restaurant North offers the guest a cozy and more intimate setting and its dishes such as soft-shell crabs along side fresh corn coulis with heirloom tomato confit are sure to leave you wanting more. The Burger Factory is situated in a small house with picnic tables out front offering mouth watering burgers and crispy French fries and is a perfect lunch time spot.
