Today, Refinery Hotel - An NYC Hotel, announces that it has earned the distinction of being named to the Travel + Leisure It List 2014. The publication’s annual editors’ choice features only exceptional new properties worldwide.
Refinery Hotel, a former hat factory turned industrial-chic hotel, opened in May 2013 sparking an edgy, innovative evolution to New York City’s dynamic Fashion District. The building’s rebirth from the neo-Gothic Colony Arcade into today’s boutique NYC Hotel is an inventive adaptive reuse that is quintessential New York.
Today, the 197-room NYC Hotel boasts Parker & Quinn, an American bistro, Winnie’s – the lobby lounge – and Refinery Rooftop, a 3,500 square-foot all-season rooftop with cinematic views of the Empire State Building. Since its successful opening, this New York City Hotel has attracted attention for its unique design and impeccable service, earning recognition from TripAdvisor as one of the Top 25 Hotels in the United States, and the U.S. News & World Report as one of the 2014 Best Hotels in New York City.
