TARRYTOWN, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 7, 2013) - Author Washington Irving's classic tale "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," about the spooky Headless Horseman and timid schoolmaster Ichabod Crane, is an eerie tale that continues to haunt today. Live the legend of Sleepy Hollow at the Westchester Marriott, a comfortable and welcoming hotel in Westchester, New York.

To celebrate Halloween, the town of Sleepy Hollow will turn into a giant Halloween playground with haunted hayrides, Gothic mansions, blazing pumpkins, farmers markets, live music, street fairs, parades, and of course, the Headless Horseman throughout the month of October. There are also evening lantern tours of the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, where author Washington Irving is buried, and Horseman's Hollow, an epic haunted house inside the 300-year-old Philipsburg Manor. Relive the tale of the Headless Horseman with "Irving's Legend," a dramatic performance of the classic tale featuring live spooky organ music and riveting storytelling by master storyteller Jonathan Kruk; performances are on weekends in October and early November.

The hotel is also located near the Tarrytown Music Hall, which hosts music, theater, film, and comedy; the 1,000-acre Rockefeller State Park Preserve, which has great hiking and cross-country skiing trails; and the Old Croton Aqueduct, a 26-mile walking trail through Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow. It's also just a quick drive from the Kykuit Rockefeller Estate, Vanderbilt Mansion, Culinary Institute of America, and West Point Military Academy--plus it's a mere 30 miles from the excitement of New York City.

After a day of exploration, guests can share a great meal in the Westchester Marriott's two on-site restaurants: Cooper's Mill for locally-sourced farm-to-fork fare or Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for delicious steaks.
