Hilton Garden Inn Riverhead


We're across the street from Tanger Outlets, and three miles from Splish Splash Water Park. Plenty of wineries are within a half-hour, and the charm of The Hamptons is just as close. We have vineyard tour packages, a restaurant, and 24-hour snack shop. Our patio with whirlpool and fire pit, indoor pool, and fitness center complete your stay.

Below is a list of official Winterfest 2021 Participants. Please support local business. Discounts will be posted soon. Due to the unpredictable nature of the pandemic – many places are short on resources, please have patience as we update the information for you.
