Artwork throughout the hotel is by local artists, including the huge Duke Riley drawing in the lobby. The big painting in the lobby’s elevator by is also by a local artist. In the hallways, light fixtures combine midcentury modern with early-1900s design elements, a style pairing that’s repeated throughout the hotel—even in the hallway signage.
The decor of the ground-floor Reynard’s restaurant (the latest from co-owner Andrew Tarlow, of Marlow & Sons, Diner and Roman’s) juxtaposes original industrial features like a cast-iron column with finer ones like the seafoam-green gloss enamel. The space also features rich, soft brown calfskin banquettes.
Some of the rooms even have bunkbeds to accommodate bands on tour.
Each room has a retro-style REVO Heritage internet radio, and a curly red cable to connect your iPhone or MP3 player to the surround-sound audio system. Bathrooms all have vintage (read, recycled) mirrors and other small furnishings. The eco-friendly bath products are by a Rockaway Beach-based Goldie’s. Custom-made bed frames are made of reclaimed ceiling timbers, by Dave Hollier Woodwork and Design, and the guestrooms all have custom wallpaper by Dan Funderburgh and Flavor Paper.
