This stunning new boutique hotel is the brainchild of Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg, co-founders of the beauty company Fresh, and hospitality guru Damien Janowicz. Located in the newly fashionable city of Hudson, New York (125 miles north of Manhattan), it is spread across three buildings: a Georgian mansion, a Greek Revival building from the 1840s and a carriage house from the 1890s. The first floor of the mansion contains a glamorous lounge/library, and a conservatory restaurant serving contemporary American cuisine. (This opens onto a courtyard overlooking a seasonal swimming pool.) The public areas are a triumph of imagination and style, and provide a setting worthy of Glazman’s remarkable private art collection. Regular bedrooms are on the small side, but the property also comprises Lofts, Studios and an Apartment. Four exquisite, superbly appointed Maker Studios — The Artist, The Writer, The Architect and The Gardener — are extremely popular and should be booked far in advance. The Maker also offers a lively bohemian café and a huge gymnasium. As well as being a weekend escape from New York, the hotel provides a fine base from which to explore the dramatic landscapes and cultural attractions of the Hudson Valley.
Terrace Loft, $630; The Artist Maker Studio, $680 (minimum stay required).
