Next review set : Refinery Hotel, New York City

Located in the heart of Midtown, near Bryant Park at 63 W. 38th Street, the luxurious Refinery Hotel has embodied the juxtaposition between raw industrial space and sumptious elegance with ease. In fact, this intriguing combination is both opulent and electic, which would normally annoy guests but instead merely knocks the edge of formality expensive hotels tend to shroud themselves in.
Of course guests don't travel to the heart of the fashion district to enjoy the Refinery Hotel's brushed oak hardwood floors. Many would rather climb 12 stories up to one of the best rooftop bars in the city. 3,500 square feet offer cinematic views of the Manhattan skyline, including the Empire State Building, while Head Bartender // Mixologist Alex Ott has crafted dreamy cocktails to enjoy at leisurely under rows and rows of hanged, twinkling lights. (Midsummer Night's Dream has nothing on the Refinery ... )
I am looking forward to checking out the hotel later this week! Be sure to check into the blog for a full review later this month.
