Hotel info:

Hampton Inn in Yonkers

The Hampton Inn provides a shuttle to the Yonkers Metro North train station. The Metro North train can be used to reach NYC (Harlem, 125th St or Grand Central Station), but Yonkers is not on the same line as the Botanical Garden, so you cannot travel back and forth between the NYBG and Yonkers by train.

The most efficient way to reach the NYBG on Saturday and Sunday morning would be to have the hotel call the car service.

RW or DWS may be able drive people back to the hotel on Saturday evening, after dinner.
