From the website of Rivertown Lodge: The Rivertown Lodge is an independently owned, 27-room hotel located in the center of town on Hudson’s Warren Street.
Friends and owners Ray and Kim took over the 40-year-old Warren Inn Motel, which was first a movie theater from 1928 to 1958, and overdue for another transformation.
The property you see now is a collaboration of the owners and the New York design studio Workstead brought to life by a local community of craftsmen. All of the guest rooms’ brass light fixtures and beds were custom-made by Workstead. The communal kitchen was built by Rowland Butler, a Hudson resident specializing in custom woodwork and historical restoration. The bar was crafted by local woodworker and restoration carpenter David Wright. The beautiful cherry front desk was artfully built by Brooklyn’s Marcus Bartenschlager. Pieces from Rhinebeck furniture maker Sawkille enrich the lobby and each of the guest rooms. Upholstery prints from Zak + Fox pop up throughout the hotel. Artwork by Basilica’s Melissa Auf de Mer and upstate native Gordon Hull bring life to the space.
