Housed in a historic former factory turned recording studio, The Time Nyack displays hip, modern art and history along with a side of urban energy in the picturesque small town of Nyack, NY in the Hudson Valley. The boutique property is owned and is the vision of development group WYINC, which specializes in developing upscale properties in urban destinations. The hotel is managed by The Dream Hotel Group – with its Dream Hotels, Time Hotels, The Chatwal and Unscripted Hotels brands. And since it’s literally a highway away from NJ, it makes perfect sense for Pennsylvanians or Jersey travelers (or even New Yorkers needing a quick getaway).
We were invited for a stay to test it out and arrived late in the evening and were greeted by Manager Brittany who arranged a special surprise for our birthday guest. Check in was pretty easy and breezy at that time of the day and we picked a rainy beginning of the week to visit but were determined to make the most of it. When we arrived in the room, not one but two bottles of booze – American Bubbles Sparkling Wine and Coastal Estates Chardonnay – were awaiting us! One bottle for any room is customary however so get ready to relax. We had a balcony view almost to the corner of the building (that balcony wraps around, a VIP suite no doubt) which was enjoyable however not much privacy.
The property includes 133 guest rooms, seven suites, a pool deck and outdoor lounge, meeting and event space and a 150-seat BV’s Grill, an outpost of Bobby Van’s Steakhouses. A rooftop lounge with views of the Hudson River is said to open later this year and will surely be a draw for guests and Nyackers alike. We meandered to Main Street a few times and found some lovely patisseries and healthy options as well as an almost hippy/bohemian culture.
Architectural and interior design firm Glen & Co Architecture designed the hotel with whimsical décor and a loft-style aesthetic. High ceilings which we loved and large windows allow the guest rooms and public spaces to fill with natural light, with some rooms (like ours) offering private terraces overlooking the Hudson River. Amenities, including Frette linens and bathrobes; C.O. Bigelow bath and body amenities; Tesla charging stations; and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi throughout the property – as well as Alexa in your room to ask questions to… or just have fun with.
The day we checked out, they turned the water off at 10 a.m. so no sleeping in for us (checkout is at noon) but obviously they were having some sort of maintenance issues. When we checked out, we did not get a paper copy and went on word that there were no charges, our advice is to get that paper copy to double check! But otherwise a great time at Time Nyack.
In 1999, Time Hotels was born with the opening of its first hotel in the heart of Times Square, New York. As part of the company’s multi-tiered brand development strategy, Dream Hotel Group transformed the brand into an upper-upscale brand that caters to a clientele looking for progressively designed spaces and forward-thinking dining options in centrally located cities. The Time Hotels brand offers travelers an urbane lifestyle product with a refined edge. Sidestepping the raucous nightclub scene, its properties feature a more sophisticated lounge feel. Boutique in its ethos regardless of room count, Time Hotels offers a more evolved perspective on the lifestyle hotel movement.
