In Upstate New York, a Hotel Dedicated to Creatives

Over the past decade, Hudson — a former whaling town on the east side of the Hudson River in upstate New York — has seen a craft renaissance. A new crop of antique shops has joined the old, and a wide range of artisans and designers from New York City have made the town their own, drawn by the natural beauty and slower pace (and lower cost) of life. Hudson’s newest hotel, the Maker, pays tribute to this fact, and with more than just its name. Early on, the co-owners Lev Glazman, Alina Roytberg and Damien Janowicz decided that four of the 11 bedrooms in the hotel, which is spread across three newly fused buildings — a Georgian mansion and carriage house from the 1890s and a Greek Revival building from the 1840s — would be dedicated to a different kind of creative archetype.

The Writer Room features a carved oak mantel and matching shelves lined with books, while the clean-lined Architect Room has a midcentury black-and-white bouclé wool sofa by Edward Wormley for Dunbar and, in the bathroom, an olive-stone Roman tub that sits beneath a skylight. Glazman and Roytberg, who are also the co-founders of the beauty company Fresh, scoured markets and auctions for vintage furnishings, including Hans Wegner chairs and a lamp by Oscar Torlasco, which they then commissioned local artisans to restore or refinish. Much of the artwork, including pieces by Agnes Martin and Gaston Lachaise, comes from their personal collection. After checking in, guests can wander through nearby shops and cafes — don’t miss the savory crepes at Le Gamin Country or the contemporary housewares for sale at Hawkins New York.
