The Roxbury Motel in Roxbury, NY

August 23, 2010 by

The Roxbury Motel is an 18-room, 5-star, luxury boutique hotel in Roxbury, NY. This unique hotel is a super-cool boutique hotel nestled amongst the picturesque Catskill Mountains.
The Room accommodations offer the discerning traveler an innovative contemporary twist on the old country lodging experience. All rooms have Wireless Internet, TV’s with DVD, players and MP3 playback, fridges, microwaves, coffee machines, A/C, Egyptian cotton towels, luxury bathroom amenities, telephones with voicemail, and wonderful curved shower rods that create more shower space in the bathtubs. Breakfast is served it continentally at 8:00am sharp.

The Kitchenette rooms feature just enough space for a family to not feel too crowded or just enough space for a couple to really relax and let go. “Kitchenette” means a little area that is separate from the main room that has a fridge, microwave, coffee machine, wet bar sink, and a “littlish” kitchen countertop space for spreading out your vacation snacks. Some kitchenettes have a pillow-top king-size bed and others have two extra-long pillow-top full-size beds.

If you don’t need a lot of space, then the two Studio rooms are perfect for surrounding yourself in fun luxury. The studio rooms don’t have a separate kitchenette area, but they still have microwaves, fridges and coffee machines. The décor is kind of like a 60’s space or sci-fi movie melded with an oh-so-early 21st century look; lots of black and chrome and shiny sparkling colors. The room has one pillow-top queen-size bed.

The five Studio Theme rooms were loosely inspired by a 60’s or 70’s TV show, film, or cartoon. Four of the rooms come with interior adjoining doors to accommodate families or couples traveling together. One extra pillow-top queen-size mattress is in all of the studio theme rooms.

The Big King Theme rooms, all located in the North Wing, are over 100sf larger than the kitchenettes. Designed with romance in mind for couples and functionality and space in mind for families, these rooms feel more like a Manhattan studio apartment than a hotel room. These rooms also include 75-gallon dual-person soaking bathtubs with dual showerheads, cushy sofa beds that can sleep two more people, state-of-the-art flat screen TV’s with DVD players, mood lighting, and separate toilet rooms.

Each of the 8 Suite rooms offers some similar and some very different amenities. The ‘Shagadellic’ is the hotel’s suite with a fully equipped kitchen. ‘Upstairs Downstairs’ gives you the entire upstairs of the main house and therefore total privacy with no other units next to you. ‘Genie’s Bottle’ and ‘George’s Spacepad’ have “out-of-this world” bathing opportunities (complete with TV’s in the bathrooms). They also have interior adjoining doors so that a large group can rent out the entire floor.

The ‘Final Frontier,’ The ‘Noir Boudoir,’ and ‘Amadeus’ Bride’ have two bedrooms and two full baths; a large spiral staircase that takes you to the lofted bedroom and bathroom on the second floor; 85-gallon two-person soaking tubs with dual shower heads; cushy sofa beds that turn the living areas into a third bedroom, and great views of the village and mountainous landscape.

‘Miss Kitty’s Saloon’ features red bordello opulence. In addition to complimentary breakfast, wireless Internet, fridges, microwaves, coffee machines, A/C, Egyptian cotton towels, telephones with voicemail, and luxury bathroom amenities, the suites also include state-of-the-art flat screen TVs with DVD players, mood lighting, and a bevy of unexpected surprises.

The Shimmer Spa is not a large full-service spa, but is comprised of two different areas. The Shimmer Spa South in the main buildings where you can go to relax in an intimate 600 sq ft “mini-spa” made of thousands of shimmering iridescent mosaic tiles complete with a hot tub, a dry sauna, a fireplace, a bathroom, and a wonderful shower made of black river rock that massages your feet while you take a shower. It also has a treatment room separated from the main room by a curtain.

At the Shimmer Spa North in the new luxury North Wing across the street, you’ll find 1200sf of spa space including ‘The Green Steam’ (a large steam area made out of 100% recycled green car windshield glass), two completely private treatment rooms including one large enough for a simultaneous couples’ massage, and a whimsically elegant relaxation room library where you can shut out the outside world while lounging in cushy chaises or perusing a generous selection of coffee table books.

The hotel’s Cocktail Lounge is open from Wednesdays through Sundays and also delivers food right to your room.

In addition to vacationing, the Roxbury Motel offers space for meetings and conferences. The executive conference room can seat a group of 12-16 people and it comes complete with projection screen and sound system if needed. The staff can help you coordinate catering, snacks, and larger meeting areas within walking distance if needed, in addition to fun adventurous excursions in the Catskills.

The mountains, streams, lakes, and valleys of the Catskills contain a virtual plethora of both outdoor and indoor activities and attractions. Whether you enjoy downhill or cross-country skiing, snowboarding, fishing, golfing, hiking, biking, swimming, kayaking, tubing, shopping, antiquing, auctioning, museum-hopping, train-riding, or just relaxing in a tranquil setting, the Catskills are being re-discovered as one of the country’s premiere four-season retreats, and The Roxbury is located in the heart of where it is all happening.

  3. I would look on Tripadvisor.com to get more information. We stayed in a hotel called the Ibis and it was right outside the Centraal train station. The red light district is walking distance from there – about 5 minutes. Amsterdam is super walkable and you can get anywhere is about 10 / 15 minutes from all the major sights.
