WEST HARRISON, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 02/24/14 -- It's not Las Vegas, but that works to Westchester, New York's advantage in some significant ways. From the lush Hudson Valley scenery, to the exclusivity of gaming options available in the area, the Renaissance Westchester Hotel's creative Casino Package has all the makings of a vacation that feels special, fun and a little bit sexy.
Designed as a way to easily capitalize on the fun at nearby Empire City Casino (located 13 miles away at Yonkers Raceway), the Casino Package provides guests with everything they need to maximize their odds of having an amazing vacation. In addition to deluxe overnight accommodations at this luxury hotel near Yonkers, New York, the package includes complimentary shuttle service to and from the casino. And guests get off to a great start with the package's $20-worth of free play at the casino as well as a $10 credit toward food and drinks.
After the games have been played and the winnings collected, guests can explore the many other features available at this hotel. After all, the Renaissance stands out among White Plains, New York hotels for numerous reasons. There's the upscale, modern décor, for example, in which guestrooms' plush bedding and ample workspaces are surrounded by soothing, contemporary color schemes and sleek furniture. Then there's the surrounding 30 acres of bucolic countryside that has inspired writers and poets for centuries. And for those whose hearts are won by way of the stomach, this property is unique among Westchester County hotels for having the award-winning chef Jean-Claude Lanchais at the helm of its gastro-bar and restaurant, Hive Living Room + Bar.
As a premier property among hotels near Rockland County, the Renaissance Westchester Hotel may be located a country away from the gambling capital of the world, but it has its own charms that make it even more appealing.
The Casino Package is available through April 30, 2014 for stays during Thursday through Sunday nights. Rates start at $139 per night, and visitors should use the promotional code ZJL when making reservations.

ABOUT RENAISSANCE WESTCHESTER HOTEL
New York City may be 35 minutes away, but it may as well be in a different universe from the resort-like Renaissance Westchester Hotel.

But guests arrive at the property as much for its own charms as for the surrounding attractions. The 348 newly renovated guestrooms and suites, for example, embrace a relaxing modern aesthetic while offering decadent bedding, high-speed Internet and functional workspaces. Visitors can also appreciate the extraordinary cuisine available at Hive Living Room + Bar, where local ingredients are turned into creative American-style dishes.

In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at Dell EMC, introduced a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
