Overview

Hip 1920s-style sleep, with a locavore restaurant, rooftop bar and Empire State Building views

The Lowdown

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.

The Refinery..
Reviewed 19 hours ago

I travelled with my daughter to celebrate her graduation and from the moment we arrived ‘The Refinery Experience’ was exceptional. From gifts in our room to towels and hot tea in reception when we were caught in a rainstorm .. nothing was too much trouble. We shall most definitely return!

One Week get away to NYC with family.

This hotel is one of the best kept secrets in NYC. It's clean and the customer service was outstanding. The manager Gabriel (sp ?)and his staff were top notch.I accidentally found this hotel on- line when I was looking for a similar location for another property. The location is great-walking distance to Times Square, Macy's, Rockefeller Center etc.
I am very particular when it comes to cleanliness, and this hotel was an A+. The rooms are very spacious for NYC. I can't wait to return for another vacation.

Lovely Stylish Hotel - Perfect for couples

We spent 4 nights at the Refinery Hotel in May 2017 for our 10th wedding anniversary. A lovely hotel, perfect for couples. Room was lovely and service was great! We were surprised by a knock on the door and upon opening found a member of staff with a bottle of wine and personalised cupcakes for us (anniversary gift). Centrally located and we walked everywhere. Staff very helpful! The only negative for us was that upon checkout, we were told that we couldn't use our pre-paid card to pay for our stay which we wish we had known before. All in all a great stay! Looking forward to our 3rd visit to NYC very soon!

Absolutely Brilliant

I have just stayed at this hotel for the past 7 night and could not ask for a more enjoyable experience! The staff are amazing and really helped make the holiday, Malvra the concierge was an absolute whiz organising all our daily plans, great asset in New York! the door guys brilliant, can’t speak highly enough. Downside, I wish they would have let us know that scaffolding was going up past our window (no notice) and the restrictions on accessing the rooftop bar! The hotel seems to favour private reservations over hotel guests! Otherwise great experience will return but now know to ask questions before booking eg; maintenance and rooftop bookings! Cheers

I’ve stayed at many hotels in NYC and all over the world. My experience at this hotel was one of best I’ve had. When I arrived I was greeted by an upbeat and friendly staff. My room was ready and the process was quick and seamless. The rooms itself was clean and comfortable. For a NYC hotel it was roomy. The fitness center was small but had what you need to get a good workout. I had lunch at Parker and Quinn . It was absolutely delicious. Overall an excellent experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
