The chic décor and artistic ambiance throughout the Refinery Hotel New York reflects the building’s rich history as the former Colony Arcade Building that once housed a 19th-century milliner and a tearoom. The loft-like, atelier rooms have 12-foot high ceilings and chic industrial touches in their design.
Step out of Refinery Hotel and take a walk in nearby Bryant Park. Then, do a tour of the 19th- and early 20th-century buildings in the area, the Empire State Building being the most famous example. Then visit the Fashion Institute of Technology Museum and the Fashion Walk of Fame. Times Square is also nearby as is the Theatre District.
