Where the past meets the future
Posted Apr 6, 2017
The Refinery takes its name from the building's past use as place that made hats, elements of which can be found around the lobby and in the guest rooms (the tables are former sowing tables). After all, this is the Garment District. This adds to the overall charm of this hotel, and the addition to the roof top restaurant tops off that charisma. But its the room's attention to detail that remains paramount as a prime New York Hotel experience that is very unique. To start, the mini bar with its affluent supply of beverages both on the table and the refer makes sure you don't go thirsty. The in-house newspaper, abundant supply of places to plug in electronic devices, the supply of toiletries ( including ear plugs to drown out the city below) are well thought out. The beds are comfy and the flat screen television is of the perfectly large size. The walk in shower, supply of robes, decent amount of space that doesn't feel confined, and even the closet to hang clothes (w/ automatic light) all add up that seals the deal as a great overall experience. This hotel should be on the top of your list and in a city that has the widest selections of hotels in its 22 square miles, look no further.
