"In 2019, myself and the Follow Her team shot a movie in Saugerties, NY, and stayed at the Best Western during our production shoot. What a wonderful experience this was!! The staff was more than accommodating and even allowed us to shoot one of our primary film scenes in the hotel room below mine. My room faced the pool and gym which was extremely motivating to keep myself in shape for set. We shot in winter, February 2019, so having the pool and gym was crucial. I stayed at the Best Western for two weeks and would stay here again in a heartbeat and would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone shooting in this area or looking for a great place to stay!" -Dani, Classified Films LLC
"We had a foreign home when we filmed in Hudson Valley for a month that place was Best Western Plus, Kingston, New York. The hotel has a great location near very beautiful and filmable places, and all of our international and NYC crew was hosted there, with great care and support from all departments from the hotel. Best Western Plus knew that we needed a very warm and friendly environment for our crew and talents we needed a nice place to stay, rest, think, design, write, and entertain each other after filming during the day. From the first encounter to the very last day together, our crew and talents felt comfortable, happy, and always well-attended and cared by the whole hotel's crew. We highly recommend productions to stay in this film friendly hotel! - Julio Uchôa, Producer, Ananã Produções
