Hotel & Leisure


Long an advocate for Hudson River tourism, GDC Principal Martin Ginsburg led GDC’s redevelopment of the former St. Mary’s Convent in Peekskill, NY, and transformed it into The Abbey Inn & Spa – a luxury boutique hotel that stands at the gateway to the Hudson Highlands. Set on a bluff overlooking the Hudson River from historic Fort Hill, The Abbey Inn & Spa, along with its farm-to-table restaurant Apropos, has become a top destination for travelers visiting the lower Hudson Valley and a popular venue for weddings and corporate events.
