Peace, Love, Lodging

Passing through Route 28 in upstate New York? A visit to the delightful Hotel Dylan might be a highlight of your road trip, particularly for a lover of music and art. Situated at the base of Overlook Mountain in Woodstock, Hotel Dylan is a nod to the culture, music, lifestyle and artistry of a generation including a music legend who once lived in the prominent town and artists colony.


Incidentally, it’s a stone’s throw from the site of the legendary 1969 rock festival whose musical heroes are given their own eleven thematic rooms in the hotel (now expanded to 22). Named primarily for subjects of acclaimed festival photographs hanging in each room, they include; The Baez, The Jimi, The Sebastian, The Havens, The Joplin, The Slick and The Levon (Parents will have to explain it all to their kids).

Though having undergone considerable renovations and reconstruction since being built in 1966, the building was once a landmark inn, attracting a variety of famous musicians. At one point, it even saw existence as a brothel.

Opened in 2013, Hotel Dylan was the joint venture of four individuals, each focusing on different angles of the business. Among the four is Darryl Jack, a pro golfer whose extensive experience in the hospitality industry led him to also act as the hotel’s resident manager.

Hungry? The hotel’s own Santa Fe Woodstock restaurant and bar features fine Mexican cuisine and along the outside lawn guests can enjoy fire pits and a heated saltwater pool. Hiking and skiing in the Catskills are just two of the activities that guests have convenient access to.

Not to be confused with NYC’s Dylan Hotel, Hotel Dylan in Woodstock, NY should greatly satisfy the ‘Bohemian’ curiosity and provide a unique and rewarding boutique hotel experience for all visitors. Why not walk right in and sit right down?
