The Roxbury Hotel Offers Nostalgia Fantasy Come To Life
The exterior of the Roxbury Hotel in the Catskill Mountains may look fairly traditional (except for the chartreuse doors) but inside it's a fun house. The Roxbury has new theatrically designed theme rooms and suites inspired by an iconic American film, TV show or cartoon from the '60s and '70s. It's a Baby Boomer's nostalgia paradise with rooms inspired by Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Flintstones, Bewitched, and I Dream of Jeannie.
Gregory Henderson and Joseph Massa, the hotel's co-owners and proprietors used all their theater experience to help create the rooms. The Genie's Bottle room is a two-bedroom suite that includes a spherical purple and gold bottle-shaped bathroom. There is a Partridge Family room with a Mondrian look, a room that resembles a Tiffany's box, and of course, a caveman room. All rooms have wireless Internet, a refrigerator, microwave, coffee machine, locally hand-made body soaps, flatscreen TVs with DVD players, chandeliers, and an extensive continental breakfast served every morning along with snacks throughout the day. The Roxbury also has the Shimmer Spa, which has shimmering mosaic tiles, a hot tub, a dry sauna, a fireplace, and a shower made of black river rock. Outside is an upper deck with chaise lounges and a fire pit. The hotel also has regular rooms, but if you are going here it makes sense to indulge in one of the fantasy rooms. The Genie's Bottle is the priciest suite, ranging in price from $225 to $290 per night.
