A few weeks ago I made a quick trip to New York City for Create & Cultivate. My coworkers (who I was traveling with) insisted that we stay at the Refinery Hotel in midtown (on 38th between 5th and 6th). The location was perfect, and I loved the way that they carried out their branding through the entire hotel.
Our flight to NYC was a little longer than expected because of the weather. When we finally landed and made it through rush hour traffic to our hotel, it had been about 10 hours since we had breakfast. Luckily the Refinery Hotel has a fantastic restaurant called Parker & Quinn because needless to say we were starving. We started our meal with the Butcher’s Meatballs and NYC Burrata. Both were delicious! The service was wonderful and I quickly followed our appetizers with the Lamb Ragu Rigatoni (told you I was starving). If you are not staying at the Refinery Hotel but would like to dine at Parker & Quinn, they have a separate entrance for the restaurant on 39th.
After dinner we made our way to our rooms. They were clean, quiet, spacious, and of course well branded. The studio double queen room comfortably fit two people, but if you have three or more staying, I would recommend getting the deluxe room for space. Next we made our way upstairs to checkout the Refinery Rooftop bar and lounge. The rooftop has an incredible view of NYC including the Empire State Building. The rooftop also has a glass covering if you are visiting during colder months or if it is raining.
Every morning the Refinery provided coffee in the lobby (life saving), and in the evenings they served wine (game changing). I didn’t have any complaints about my stay, which is rare, and will hopefully be back to the Refinery Hotel soon. Be sure to checkout the Refinery Hotel the next time you are in NYC, and shop all my travel must-haves below! xoxo
