Hip 1920s-style sleep, with a locavore restaurant, rooftop bar and Empire State Building views
Located on a rapidly transforming block in the heart of Manhattan's Garment District, the Refinery Hotel is a hip, 1920s-inspired sleep. Behind the neo-Gothic façade, the elegant lobby is all sculpted Venetian plaster and limestone beneath 20-foot ceilings, while the guest room floors channel the building’s former life as a millinery factory and tea salon with brass fixtures, brushed oak hardwood floors, vintage fashion tomes, and bespoke sewing machine–style desks. While rooms range from 250 to 500 square feet, they feel even larger thanks to 12-foot ceilings and oversize windows, while the familiar reclaimed industrial look is kept fresh with large-scale modern artwork. The tastemaking team behind NYC’s Park Avenue Tavern is at the helm of the hotel’s signature Parker & Quinn restaurant, which has a locavore menu and impressive show kitchen. Weeknight live music—from piano to jazz and DJ dinners—score prohibition-era cocktails at Winnie's Lobby Bar. But the true showstopper is the 3,500 square foot rooftop bar with its cinematic views of the Empire State Building and New York skyline.
In the Area
The Refinery Hotel’s Midtown address puts you close to all of NYC’s classic sights. First-timers shouldn’t miss the Empire State Building, a stroll through Grand Central Terminal or a quick photo opp in Times Square. A few blocks south, pick up gifts for home at Macy’s or head over to all the shops of Fifth Avenue (the best are below 23rd street). Get a culture fix at MoMa, a must-visit Midtown museum housing the world’s best collection of modern masterpieces, or thumb your way through an original Gutenberg Bible and Mozart’s own copy of his Symphony in D Major at the Morgan Library and Museum.
