New York’s hat trick
The Big Apple scarcely needs another boutique retreat, but The Refinery will still be a welcome arrival. Pitched in the Garment District on West 38th Street (between Fifth and Sixth Avenues), the hotel makes use of the Colony Arcade Building – a former hat factory. The soul of the neo-Gothic structure has been preserved – 12 floors and 197 rooms will retain period fittings. A lobby tea lounge will also greet guests when the hotel opens in March.
